Parents are the child's first teachers.
Dr. Maria Montessori taught that spiritual preparation for teachers is paramount. This DVD represents a renewed thrust for a purpose - the passing of the Torch of Illumination for the education of the world's children.
What began with Gautama Buddha and passed through Clara Louise Keininger to Mark Prophet and then to Elizabeth Clare Prophet on January 1, 1973, is now imparted in the teachings of Maria Montessori to our community…and beyond!
Dr. Elisabeth Caspari, friend and student of Maria Montessori, and Mary Ellen Maunz, master teacher and director of Montessori International for 25 years, have combined to fill this remarkable DVD with practical tips and profound insights into teaching the whole child.
Mother Mary said in 1980, on the inauguration of our first Montessori teacher training course at Summit University:
Our joy is boundless, as yours is, to see the spirals of the understanding of the Montessori method and movement transferred in a living way to your hearts and souls. The sense of being needed and of being useful, professionally and practically, is most needed by your souls. How happy are ye when ye have a gift of life in your hand! I commend you… to consider how precious is that experience of receiving the torch that I one day gave to Maria Montessori….I desire to bless you and the blessed Elisabeth Caspari who has brought to you the sacred treasure.
