Dr. Fletcher inspires us by awakening potential genius and creating optimal learning for all through her Optimal Wisdom Learning series: Teach with Spirit: The Teacher's Inward Journey Guide and Wisdom from the Inner Teacher; Turning Aha!s into OWL Moments. She integrates her vast educational experience with her spiritual passion, resulting in consistent OWL moments and Spirit-filled teaching.
Optimal learning occurs when we understand the nuances, circumstances and conditions that support our cognition. Teaching with Spirit opens us to know how to replicate those conditions, creating optimal learning opportunities! 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. Embracing Spirit and learning with 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
Often overlooked and underestimated, the actual moment of learning in the most important element in our classroom. OWL shows us to teach with Spirit, to understand how we access wisdom during the moment of insight. Imagine if every teacher taught with Spirit, creating the precise conditions to allow students to receive Aha!/OWL moments of learning!
"Do not train children to learn by force or harshness, but direct them to it by what amuses their minds...discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each." - Plato
Genius can strike at any time! "I get it!" "Eureka, that's the answer!" happens to all of us; and we know it's the 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. Are you connected to Spirit?
"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
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. Ready to fly?
"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
