“Living The Potential presents an exciting new vision for education based on the fundamental premise that all students already have the seeds of wisdom within them. This hopeful vision invites all of us to collaborate together to create learning environments that support and sustain students’ inner wisdom. We are invited to consider what education would look like if its main focus was unleashing this boundless potential within all students. May this empowering vision based on creativity, collaboration, and cooperation help make a wisdom-based learning the foundation for education throughout the world.”
