In this course, Dr. Christopher Perrin helps educators to more deeply understand and apply the tradition of contemplation and restful learning encompassed by the word scholé. Most Americans have inherited an approach to education that is filled with ceaseless activity and a great deal of anxiety. In this course Dr. Perrin recovers an older, classical approach to education that was more restful and contemplative, emphasizing deep, lasting learning. This training has been in high demand in Dr. Perrin’s consulting and training work at classical schools around the US.
