Description

Reviews

This book acknowledges that spirituality is an integral part of adult learning and development. Building on the history of adult education and training, which is laced with spiritual themes and motivations, the authors suggest that the profession needs to recover some of its early concerns for holistic, spiritually informed, and socially responsible practice. Adult educators and trainers need this text which addresses all facets of spirituality and assists them in making pedagogical choices. The authors challenge readers to examine their own spirituality before and while they are nurturing the spirituality of learners. Here educators and trainers can explore new ways to make sense of their own spiritual lives and those of their students. Chapters include: Introducing Spirituality, Reconciling Difference: Different Dimensions and Approaches to Spirituality, Developing Our Spirituality, Spirituality in the Work of the Educator and Trainer, Spirituality in the Workplace, and Adult Educators and Trainers as Leaders of Change.

"The authors are to be congratulated for their creativity, their research, and their challenge to each of us to self-examination, and to examination of our teaching methods." -- Jean Goulet, Caravan, Autumn 2003

"…this book is worthwhile for anyone in the field of adult education and training interested in acknowledging and highlighting the spiritual dimensions of his or her work…an important addition to the spirituality discourse in adult education." -- Fred Milacci, Liberty University, Adult Education Quarterly, February 2005

"English et al. provide a number of practical helps for the reader. The authors' tapestry is woven from a broad range of theoretical voices from the literature. It is embellished with many informative, often inspirational, always thoughtful vignettes drawn from mostly Western spiritual traditions." -- Dent C. Davis, D.Min., Ed.D., Adult Learning, Volume 12, Number 2
