ABIDING HEART EDUCATION

The Abiding Heart Education™️ approach is centred on transformative experiential Buddhist learning for kindergarten through to class 8. The Abiding Heart's Teacher Training Centre offers full-time and part-time kindergarten and primary teacher training, Buddhist foundation studies, and short courses. 

"We are the authors of our own destiny and being the authors,

we are ultimately, perhaps frighteningly, free."

Shantideva

 

"Freedom is the sense of being capable

of actions motivated solely by love." 

Rudolf Steiner

The Abiding Heart Education™️ approach to education rests on a Buddhist paradigm, rather than on prevailing education systems or worldviews, and the emphasis is on developing wisdom and compassion that is to be lived in the classroom and in one’s personal life. The transformative approach to learning nurtures the children’s changing consciousness and fosters autonomy and ownership in teachers. All aspects of learning and knowing are inter-linked and, by bringing about a shift in how children and teachers learn and experience the world, Abiding Heart Education advocates for self-transformation.

 

The Abiding Heart Education's international teacher training was founded in 2017 and brings together a team of acclaimed academics and experts in education, Buddhism, developmental science, neuroscience, and the arts. By fusing Buddhist worldview, meditation and application with Steiner / Waldorf methodology and developmental science, we have created a unique children’s transformative pedagogy that gives equal weight to the intellectual, affective and action domains.

A team of experts and teaching practitioners conduct research that informs the teacher training curriculum and methodology as well as the children’s curricular content and learning approach. A main outcome of this work is a transformative experiential Buddhist teacher training centre, which caters for international and local communities. We offer both in-person and online courses in the Abiding Heart Education™️ approach. Owing to the global pandemic, all our courses are currently online.
