Abstract/Notes: Montessori’s philosophy of education has a profound impact on children’s (0-18 years old) education. When he analyzes human’s spiritual embryo, its implication is far beyond the scope of children, which contains thorough understanding and discovery on human from the perspective of biology and psychology: the human embryo is a separate process; human owns physiological function of spirituality when they are born; the spirituality in psychology shows its features in the free choice of the external environment - "sense of order", "sense of dignity" and "sense of satisfaction". These features are not only the key to a child’s development, but also the characteristics of innovative talent. Spirituality brings innovation when innovation brings future of the nation.

Conclusions showed participants perceived an increase in spirituality and gained inner peace, patience, kindness, humility, self-respect. They also showed they gained the ability to let go of negative energy, achieving calmness and positivism.

Looking Back to the Future: The Current Relevance of Maria Montessori's Ideas About the Spiritual Well-Being of Young Children

Available from: University of South Australia

Abstract/Notes: Maria Montessori (1870-1952) was an Italian educator whose ideas and principles have validity in informing, understanding and responding to the challenges faced by contemporary educators . Many of her foundational principles are at the forefront of current educational thinking but are unacknowledged or unknown in mainstream education. It is argued that her ideas and principles about the spiritual wellbeing of young children have validity in the current debate. Montessori saw spirituality as innate in young children, the primary force driving their development and central to their capacity for joyful and deep engagement with their environment. She saw children’s capacity and ability to concentrate deeply as a spiritual pathway to a new level of individual consciousness and connection to the environment. These principles can inform our current thinking, understanding and response to young children’s spirituality. The conditions to bring about, support and protect what Montessori calls ‘concentration’ should be considered in pedagogical responses to the spiritual needs of young children
