Marguerite Smithwhite’s

Research for an Education for Human and Planetary Consciousness and for a true Human Unity.

This research into a tremendous volume of art and certain modern sciences for the creation of a spiritual education is based on the teachings of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother. The specialised sciences which have proved most useful in this new pathway of education are Kirlian photography, microphotography and simple high-energy physics - visual teaching material drawn from the sciences is a highly effective part of this teaching program.

Marguerite had the opportunity and privilege to experiment with this form of spiritual education in the early 70s in Auroville, India. She worked with children through art and silent 'moments' within which the children can free up their inherent ability to express a world within themselves that is at the very heart of their relationship to life. The resulting art reflects a sense of beauty, light, love, peace and harmony, illustrating how this form of education can produce visually beautiful 'fruits'.

Marguerite realised that transformations in education can be possible when the first priority is to educate the educators and decision makers. Marguerite wishes to establish an international group to consider actions frotowards creating new thinking in education, that takes into account the recognition of the existence of the human spirit.
