A Brief Note from the Authors, Delphi and
Our school is different because the Sanctuary
School has risen out of the land. It is a wise place where animals
can speak and kids can hear them and talk back!
It is a place where we all respect one another
and practice being kind and loving.
There is a secret here--most people don't know
it--well, some kids do!
When you mix respect for all life with kindness
and a real loving partnership, the mind goes to another place
entirely where you can think with your heart.
Give this school a chance. It is better than
any other school on the planet.
What the Kids Need to Teach
Kids are teachers before they can be taught.
They have so much information within them and we have to listen
to them when they are speaking!
I, Delphi, have the ability to hear babies
and understand their talk. That is because I am very open to
them and consider them to be the smartest of all the human inhabitants.
Babies speak straight from their souls. They haven't gotten
the human talk yet and so what they say is quite pure and heaven-sent.
If you believe that babies know a lot and can teach you many
things about heaven, you will be right where you need to be--the
heart-mind. Most children speak from that place and they learn
better when you speak from that same place.
In the classroom and in the home, you have
to provide the opportunity for kids to teach you. At least half
the time spent in school should be given to listening to the
children and learning from them. Education should come out of
children. Their hearts know a great deal. Teachers have to take
time to listen and to create ways to inspire children to divulge
what they already know.
Many people realize that the heart has a brain.
It is rarely used, except by kids. The Children of the New World
make a point of speaking from the heart, and they like to think
from that place too. When you have a teacher who recognizes
the value of the heart-mind, there is no end to what the kids
Listen with your heart! And remember to ask
the animal members to also take part in making the school fun
and exciting for all! By the way, if you would like to learn
how to communicate with us, you must listen with your heart.
One more point I would like to make is let
the kids map their day. And do not stick to the same schedule.
Be different every day. Kids like surprises, don't forget.
