Description : In recent decades, and around the world, much attention has been given to the role of spirituality in the education of children and young people. While educationalists share many common goals and values in nurturing the spiritual lives of children and young people, national and regional cultures, religions and politics have impacted on the approaches scholars and practitioners have adopted in their investigations and practices. The different contexts across nations and regions mean that educators face quite distinct conditions in which to frame their approaches to spiritual education and research, and the nature and impact of these differences is not yet understood. This book brings together thinkers from around the globe and sets them the task of explaining how their research on children’s spirituality and education has been shaped by the historical, cultural, religious and political contexts of the geographic region in which they work. The book presents contributions in three sections – Europe and Israel, Australasia, and The Americas– and concludes with a chapter highlighting what is common and what is contextually unique about global approaches to spirituality and education.

Description : Becoming Self less Becoming one was the prayer that Jesus prayed in John 17. Then why are we are we all so fractured in our lives, our families, and our churches? The underlying reason is self. It was catapulted into the world at the Fall of Man and is alive and flourishing in this generation. Self, selfishness, and self-centeredness will stifle our lives and the fulfillment we all are seeking. Become free, become aware, and become Self less today. In the process of becoming Self less you have come face to face with the reality that we all are carriers of this character trait. We are allowing this sin to stifle our purpose and the joy of fulfilling His plan in our life and our culture. These topics lead you to the tools to eradicate this driving force from our lives, our families, and the life of the Body of Christ:• Training Your Brain to operate more like Him and less like our self-centered self• The Plan, living within the boundaries of 8 in 4:8• How to renovate your life, your family, and this culture Realization of self-centeredness in our individual lives as well as in the local church will help us intentionally become one as Jesus prayed. As we acknowledge the sin of pride that consumes us we can become the true and powerful Body of Christ. • Self less is a call to action; it begins with you and me • The Self less individual is a powerful individual• Self less men and women will develop into Self less churches• Self less churches will have the explosive growth that they are seeking Cultures change and nations change when we as individuals change. You will not be satisfied with your life as you knew it. You will recognize the lies and the defeat of your previous perspective of your life. You will never return to your self-centered self. YOU won't be there!

Description : The Great Prajna Paramita Sutra, taught by the Buddha in sixteen assemblies in four places during twenty-two years and recorded posthumously by his disciples in six hundred fascicles with approximately five million words, is regarded as the largest canon in Buddhism. The translator has worked on this sutra since 2008 and has completed the whole text. The present version is, so far, the only complete presentation of this great sutra in English translated from the Chinese Da Bo Re Bo Luo Mi Duo Jing (600 Juan, or 600 fascicles), rendered from Sanskrit about 1,350 years ago (from 660 to 663) by Xuanzang (Hsüantsang, c. 602–664). This English translation appears as a set of thirty hardbound volumes, with twenty fascicles in each volume. A translator's introduction and an extensive glossary of terms are included in volume 1. The Great Prajna Paramita Sutra is important not only because of its extensive teaching but also because it demonstrates what the great bodhisattva, the great bodhisattva path of cultivation, and the great bodhisattva vehicle are. It also indicates how one should cultivate and learn to become a bodhisattvam -- and eventually a Buddha – transcending self-interest to reach a state of emptiness, selflessness, and nonattachment. This sutra depicts, manifests, and elaborates an entire learning process leading to Buddhahood. Regardless of where you are on the path to enlightenment, you will be nourished by the parables and dialogues within.

Description : Manabi and Japanese Schooling: Beyond Learning in the Era of Globalisation considers the theory and practices behind the Japanese concept of Manabi, particularly as the progressive concept of learning in the globalised world. It seeks to provide educational visions of Manabi as an alternative concept of learning in the era of post-globalisation. The authors derive different perspectives in Manabi from Eastern philosophy, clarifying and comparing with learning and Bildung to give alternative educational discourses. It considers the idea of Confucius and Taoism and studies the practice of minna, characterising it as a cooperative and peaceful problem-solving method. Addressing the trend of ‘learnification’ and its contribution to educational reform, it explores the impacts, conflicts and difficulties of introducing learner-centred education into East Asian educational settings as well as the potential of Manabi as an effective tool for all types of learning. Expertly written and researched, this book includes a foreword by Gert Biesta and is a valuable resource for researchers, academics and postgraduate students in the field of educational philosophy, educational theory and Eastern philosophy.

Description : The thesis of this work is that in both modern Japanese philosophy and American pragmatism there has been a paradigm shift from a monological concept of self as an isolated "I" to a dialogical concept of the social self as an "I-Thou relation," including a communication model of self as individual-society interaction. It is also shown for both traditions all aesthetic, moral, and religious values are a function of the social self arising through communicative interaction between the individual and society. However, at the same time this work critically examines major ideological conflicts arising between the social self theories of modern Japanese philosophy and American pragmatism with respect to such problems as individualism versus collectivism, freedom versus determinism, liberalism versus communitarianism, and relativism versus objectivism.

Description : "Abundance Creed is more than just a book of poetry; it explores the search for meaning in today's changing world. It is thought provoking and inspires the reader through the reflections of the author, Julius Smith. It is a must read for those who value a healthy attitude towards life. As a consequence of his understanding of life issues Abundance Creed connects past history with the present-day struggle of African-Americans. Smith has the exceptional gift of crafting divinely inspired, creative poetry that is both sagacious, perceptive and readable. Julius Smith's sensitivity to the critical, fundamental, timeless issues of the human experience, his depth of insight and analysis is not only remarkable, but it is phenomenal. His reflections are inspirational and useful for those seeking to delve into the subjects of abundance, the current God ordained role of the family, and the painful history (past and current effect) of slavery in America. Smith is a perceptive and serious interpreter of life, as a result Abundance Creed breathes a sense of true compassion, discernment and spirituality which are the inner qualities of Smith himself." Reverend Dr. Almetha Thomas, ordained minister, Licensed Clinical Therapist by the American Association of Pastoral Counselors (retired) "As we walk through life we are gifted with an Abundance of memories. The good ones are like a path of light, the bad ones are shaded by the Reflection of darkness. The images we see in the mirror are Family who develop our wings and allow us to fly. Time represents the pace of our journey, to allow one to experience the quintessential steps of life. The Abundance Creed is well worth the read, and holding on to as a life reference." Quincy Smith, Hollywood Actor "In the Abundance Creed Reverend Smith's in-depth knowledge of the human spirit, his grasp of compassion, justice, and freedom surfaces throughout his poetry. His focus on the American experience points to democracy. I am amazed at his ability to capture feelings, fears, hopes and dreams by connecting words, phrases and sentences. He is innovative, has an extroverted style and quite frankly, the material is inspirational and a joy to read. Right on Brother!" Reverend Richard D. Winn, Sr., Superintendent, The Griffin District, North Georgia Conference of The United Methodist Church

Description : We are said to be suffering a narcissism epidemic when the need for collective action seems more pressing than ever. Selfishness and selflessness address the ‘proper’ and ‘improper’ relationship between one’s self and others. The work they do during periods of social instability and cultural change is probed in this original, interdisciplinary collection. Contributions range from an examination of how these concepts animated the eighteenth-century anti-slavery campaigners to dissecting the way middle-class mothers’ experiences illustrate gendered struggles over how much and to whom one is morally obliged to give.

Description : This book explores the constitutive role alterity plays in identity formation in Western and Eastern traditions. It examines the significance of difference in conceptions of identity across major philosophical and religious traditions in a global and comparative context, considering Ancient Greek and Egyptian, Chinese, Islamic, European and Japanese philosophies. In addition, the book opens up discussion of less dominant trends in philosophical thinking, particularly the spaces between self-same existence and otherness in the histories of philosophical and religious thought. Chapters critique both essentialist and postmodern understandings of self-constitution by questioning the ordinary narrative of identity construction across Western and non-Western traditions. The book also explores the construction of selfhood from a wide range of perspectives, drawing upon individual philosophers (including Plotinus, Descartes, Geulincx, Hume, de Beauvoir and Ueda) as well as religious and philosophical movements, including Confucian philosophy, Zen Buddhism, Protestantism and Post-Phenomenology. Differences in Identity in Philosophy and Religion represents a landmark study, drawing together a range of approaches, perspectives and traditions to explore how identity is constructed across the world.

Description : This careful analysis of early Buddhist thought opens out a perspective in which no permanent Self is accepted, but a rich analysis of changing and potent mental processes is developed. It explores issues relating to the not-Self teaching: self-development, moral responsibility, the between-lives period, and the 'undetermined questions' on the world, on the 'life principle' and on the liberated one after death. It examines the 'person' as a flowing continuity centred on consciousness or discernment (vinnana) configured in changing minds-sets (cittas). The resting state of this is seen as 'brightly shining' - like the 'Buddha nature' of Mahayana thought - so as to represent the potential for Nirvana. Nirvana is then shown to be a state in which consciousness transcends all objects, and thus participates in a timeless, unconditioned realm.

Description : "De la vaporisation et de la centralisation du Moi. Tout est la. " Charles Baudelaire (journal entry) This anthology is my visit to Oz. On sabbatical in 1988, I chose to reeducate myself in general biology, first broadening my erudition as an immunologist, and then extending that horizon into evolutionary biology and embryology. I was particularly attracted to reflections on the nature of the self as an organ ismic concept. I went in search of reorientation as a confused physician scientist, and came back with this book. Baum's Wizard of Oz presented opportunities for growth, and herein lies the purpose of this volume: in providing updated statements concerning the nature of the organism from both scientific and metaphysical perspectives, we might ponder the philo sophical basis of our research in the hope of gaining insight into our endeavor, not to mention the possibility of its enrichment; it is this contem plative view of our research which offers a unique dimension to this anthology. To that end, the project follows my idiosyncratic prejudices. The anthology derives in large measure from the symposium, "Organism and the Origin of Self' held at Boston University, April 3-4, 1990, under the auspices of the Boston University Center for the Philosophy and History of Science, with generous support of Robert Cohen and Jon Westling, and the organizational skills of Deborah Wilkes. The Symposium presented three ver sions of the Self from the vantages of embryology, evolution and medicine.

Description : Half a century ago, Canadian poet Gary Botting pioneered the use of shaped poetry to achieve visual effects often experienced by the reader as vertigo. Most of his published poems pushed the accepted boundaries of poetic and linguistic structure and thematic acceptability. Now his experimental poems are regarded as avant-garde. In Streaking! The Collected Poems of Gary Botting, the poet explores themes of unabashed sensuality in a variety of forms, from haikus, sonnets, odes, and ballads to his full-length poetic drama, Prometheus Rebound. His acerbic wit finds voice in poetic sequences such as Monomonster in Hell, where he satirizes his own naiveté as a teenaged missionary in Hong Kong. “His sense of humor – rare in Canadian poets – giggles across the page,” says one critic.

At long last the mystery of Christ's secret teaching of eternal life has been revealed.
