We offer an exciting approach to spirituality based on the insights of Paramhansa Yogananda, author of Autobiography of a Yogi and founder of the model for Education for Life schools. In an article called The Balanced Life, he wrote:
Educational authorities deem it impossible to teach spiritual principles in public schools because they confuse them with the variety of conflicting forms of religious faith. But if they concentrate on the universal principles of peace, love, service, tolerance, and faith that govern the spiritual life, and devise methods of practically growing such seeds in the fertile soil of the child’s mind, then the imaginary difficulty is dissolved. It is the greatest mistake to ignore this problem just because it is seemingly difficult.
At our school we offer teens the opportunity to cultivate their spirituality through the exploration of the key themes of Service, Adventure, Self-Discovery, and Personal Excellence. A fuller description of this topic is available at this link.
