Editorial Reviews

“Here is a brave, refreshing and hopeful collection of counter-cultural stories which are at once passionate, honest and engaging. Together they map out diverse yet linking pathways, demonstrating that - despite operating within uncomprehending systems - the practice of education can be made both deeply relevant to our lives and actively transformative towards a more whole, sane future where the quality of all relationships is paramount.”--Dr Stephen Sterling, Schumacher Reader in Education for Sustainability, Centre for Sustainable Futures, University of Plymouth, UK“These narratives tell the story of what we transformative educators have taken on – learning in the dark. Story is one of the few forms that can hold the angst of our not knowing while moving our hearts to a deepened understanding. This is a work that gives meaning to the patterns that relate uncertainty to minute, but precious insights—the disorienting path of the transformative educator.”--Joanne Gozawa, California Institute of Integral Studies
