A Framework for Wise Education, based on Ellen Tadd's unique understanding of the chakra system, defines seven key categories that each play a role in healthy human development. Framework categories pertain to every person, yet each of us may express and cultivate them in unique ways.
Inspiration Devotion, a sense of connection -- happiness from the inside out.
Wisdom The discernment to make wise decisions, observe how things are interconnected and understand the long-term consequences of thoughts, words and actions.
Inner Confidence Including self worth and a love of learning.
Loving Wanting the best for self and others, and courage to act in a loving way.
Emotional Well-being The ability to maintain positive emotions.
Discipline A wide range of skills covering the details of daily life - including attending to order, caring for health, developing the mind, nourishing the inner life and managing resources such as time, energy and money.
Relationships Creative and collaborative ability, including the balance of leading and following, listening and speaking, acting and waiting.
Creative Lives is supported by major gifts from the James and Rebecca Morgan Foundation, The Vermont Children's Trust Foundation and the Jack and Dorothy Byrne Foundation. We deeply appreciate their investment in our work.
