Episode 20

Returning to ancient roots (ft. Jenny Finn, Ph.D.)

In this episode, I speak with Jenny Finn, Head of School at Springhouse, a learning community with life at its center. Springhouse takes learning beyond traditional-progressive continuum as the school focuses on vitality, meaning, and cultivating wholeness. Jenny sees education as a primary agent to create regenerative cultures, reflecting how we are all connected, as inhabitants of the planet. This episode hopes to continue the conversation about what a post-humanist approach to learning could look like. We discuss: 

  • How education is culture-making (so what kind of culture do we want to make?),
  • How if you're not encountering resistance, you're not trying anything new,
  • The dangers of being addicted to knowing.
