i am so inspired by John Hunter's approach to educating children's minds and characters. i love the way you conveyed his stages of learning, as well as what you gleaned from him, his abilities and methods of educating children. what is outstanding about his game and his way with children is the spirit in which he approaches education -- it's based on this all-encompassing respect for everyone and everything. i used this review as a link on my blog today to hopefully spread this story. thank you!

So glad you caught this work and the powerful idea of silence. As our culture learns more from diverse cultures, that's one of many vital ideas we can incorporate into our personal and professional lives.

I'd somehow missed hearing

I'd somehow missed hearing about John Hunter, so I'm grateful to learn about his work here. The author makes many thought provoking points, but this one resonated with me -- profound in its simplicity: "Offer silence and empty space for brand-new ideas to emerge. We seem compelled in our culture to override quiet sounds and fill quiet spaces with talk, stuff or noise. Resist that temptation; get comfortable with the power of an empty space."
