Our philosophy is simple. We believe that all children have an inherent creativity. We also believe parents and teachers have an inherent wisdom which allows them to guide their children and bring out their child's highest potential. Through systemic and personal introspection parents and educators can tap into this knowledge and actualise it. We take parents and teachers through the process of this introspection with the means of specialized systematic techniques. The process is deeply profound for all those involved.
I truly believe that the systemic approach in the classroom is very beneficial for the children. It sets a very positive tone in the classroom, makes each individual aware of his or her personal feelings and reduces incidents of anger an conflict. I am definitely getting a better understanding of the children’s needs and capabilities, and I look forward to continue exploring these using the systemic approach tools that I have been exposed to.
At the beginning of the lockdown, I was challenged to do an online webinar. I had never done that, but I said yes. I was surprised at how well it worked! It was very special for me to have Marianne Franke in my audience! Since then I have had a lot of online webinars and trainings. Thanks for that invitation!
I came to know ecl in 2020 thanks to a message from Linda Baker at GANE Forum calling for a workshop entitled “Teachers or substitute parents”. The most recent workshop I attended was “Belonging: the gifts, the costs, the evolutionary journey”. Although I do not work as an educator, ecl topics on systemic education has broadened my perspective of Neo-humanist Education that we have been trying to applied in our activities in Ananda Marga Saigon. My great appreciation for your guidance.
