EXPLORING THE ROOTS OF MONTESSORI’S VISION
The essence of Maria Montessori’s vision for education is revealed through first hand accountings of her story from pre-World War II through the present, as told by members of her inner circle. Unraveling the threads of our lineage and our history brings us to a deepened sense of purpose for our collective great work on behalf of the child.
In Montessori’s oral tradition, Philip Snow Gang weaves his own personal story as a keeper of the vision together with gems and insights from his own experience outside the frame of traditional Montessori training. His stories illuminate the spiritual roots of our work, the essential qualities that move us in the direction of the Montessori vision for a new humanity.
Whether you are a seasoned Montessori guide, a student of her teachings, or a parent, we invite you to bring your voice to a dialogue about the essence.
