“A human nurtured instead of shamed, and loved instead of driven by fear, develops a different brain and therefore a different mind.

Hello Parents,

I first posted the below interview about 9 years ago.  In that time, the public school system has continued to decline.  In the Southbay, although there are now more humanistic, mindful options for elementary school, there are still not enough.  The only 3 in my ‘immediate’ area are: The Knowing Garden in South Redondo Beach, DaVinci Innovation Academy in Hawthorne, and Del Sol in Manhattan Beach.  There are more options on the west side and in the valley.  Let me know if you would like a list.

Lots of Love,

Linda

Brent: Joe, as you look back over 50 years and four books on child development, I am wondering where you are at today. What are you thinking and feeling now? Perhaps as a starting place I can quote from the last page of your latest book, The Biology of Transcendence. “A human nurtured instead of shamed, and loved instead of driven by fear, develops a different brain and therefore a different mind. He will not act against the well-being of another nor against his larger body, the living Earth.”

Joseph Chilton Pearce: I stand by that. The word transcendence means the ability to go beyond limitation and constraint and that’s what the biological system is designed to do, provided nurturing and a safe base are given. Over the past 50 years researchers showed us more about the real development of children than we’ve ever known in history. Ironically in North America our education system is specifically going point for point against every single research discovery made.
