This program is part of the New Dimensions Media Series Reimagine Education. What happens when you get a room full of individuals together on a quest for bridging integral educators, educators for social justice, and those who are working in socially conscious business and philanthropy, and cultural creative media? Just such a gathering took place in February of 2005. With a grant from Newman's Own, Joan Jaeckel and David Marshak, have been the point riders in forming a coalition that has since morphed into a passionate movement. Their vision strives to ask the questions, bring diverse people together, and, collectively create enough wind to tip the scales for a more conscious, compassionate, and effective way of raising our children in the 21st Century. Conscious parenting, integrative health, and integral education are the keys to evolving into a new way of growing up. (hosted by Justine Willis Toms)
