Sharing Montessori Cosmic Education
For A Kinder Earth
“We shall walk together on this path of life, for all things are part of the universe and are connected with each other to form one whole unity.” – Maria Montessori
A supporter of Maria Montessori, poet and polymath Rabindranath Tagore said, “The highest education is that which does not merely give us information but makes our life in harmony with all existence.” That is Cosmic Education. It is an exploration of the universe and its indivisible unity. It is a discovery that everything is connected, every creature has a “cosmic task”–working to contribute to balance and harmony. It is a call towards respect and responsibility–if everything has a place in our shared universe and everything has a unique role, what then is mine? Cosmic Education is the core of Montessori, an education of peace.
“The children will develop a kind of philosophy which teaches them the unity of the universe. This is the very thing to organize their intelligence and to give them a better insight into his own place and task in the world…” – Maria Montessori
