Dr. Fletcher transitions us to conscious learning, by awakening potential genius and creating optimal learning for all through her book, Wisdom from the Inner Teacher; Turning Aha!s into OWL Moments (Optimal Wisdom Learning). She integrates her vast educational experience with her spiritual passion, bringing a unique process which results in consistent OWL moments.
"The teacher who is indeed wise does not bid you to enter the house of his wisdom but rather leads you to the threshold of your mind." -Kahlil Gibran
Optimal learning occurs when we understand the nuances, circumstances and conditions that support our cognition. Replicating those conditions creates opportunities to learn optimally – quickly and accurately! This frees us from frustration and confusion, allowing truth to emerge from within.
"The beginning of wisdom is found in doubting; by doubting we come to question, and by seeking we may come upon the truth." -Pierre Abelard
The Aha! moments that we experience can be biologically predicted, identified in the left/right brain by neuroscientists, and considered sacred by philosophers. Learning and embracing the Optimal Wisdom Learning (OWL) six-step process allows moments of insight to be expected, predicted and appreciated.
“…the mind was carefully preparing itself for the epiphany; every successful insight was preceded by the same sequence of cortical events.” -Jonah Leher
Genius can strike at any time! “I get it!” “Eureka,” “That’s the answer!” happens to all of us; and we know it is truth. Students in a classroom, a corporate executive, a parent—we rely on the wisdom from our inner teacher to guide us to the correct answer. Where do YOU get your wisdom?
"We don't receive wisdom; we must discover it for ourselves after a journey that no one can take for us or spare us."- Marcel Proust
Often overlooked and underestimated, the actual moment of learning is the most important element in our classroom. OWL teaches us to understand how we access wisdom in the moment of insight. Imagine if every teacher created the precise conditions to allow students to receive Aha!/OWL moments of learning consistently!
"Do not train children to learn by force and harshness, but direct them to it by what amuses their minds ... discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each." -Plato
This magical journey takes flight once we've mastered the six-step process. Random Aha!s transform into conscious OWL Moments, opening our lives to the flow of truth and wisdom.
"The illiterate of the future will not be the person who cannot read. It will be the person who does not know how to learn."-Alvin Toffler
