The Path of Spirituality: Reflections from a Montessorian and a Physicist
Abstract: Spirituality has been explored in various fields of study for several decades. This article examines how spirituality relates to the Montessori philosophy. Various aspects of the Montessori philosophy discussed include Montessori teacher training, the spiritual preparation of the teacher, the inner teacher, and teacher strengths and weaknesses. The authors also examined how adult learning informs spirituality and the Montessori philosophy. Additionally, several kinds of love were discussed in light of these facets. Reflections of a physicist and a Montessorian on these concepts are presented in each section.
