Coming in 2019:

Prague, Czech Republic
Oslo, Norway

with facilitator Philip Snow Gang, PhD

The symposium focuses on social change through Montessori education. We will work together in a Montessori way to process and document how Montessori teaching and learning respond to the question:

What contexts and processes in education might liberate teachers and learners so that they become catalysts for the new human — one whose integral relationship with Gaia is bound by right-action and love?

Together let’s explore the spiritual roots of Montessori’s ideas and share how these can manifest in our work with children and adults.

Soon after Mario Montessori Sr. passed away, I receive a letter from his widow Ada explaining, “I only feel that Mario had the real gift for pointing out the essence, and I am afraid people may lose themselves in the details.”

video interview with

mario montessori jr.

When I get caught up in daily details, it is the essence of Montessori which routes me back to ensure [her] vision for the child, for humanity and for the future. Participating in Dr. Gang’s symposium solidified my understanding of Montessori’s work and our work with young people. The essence of Montessori’s principles is not only for the development of the child; the essence also applies to the development of the adult. Attending this event is a treasure that will last a lifetime.


~Claudia, President of CAMT

Most books, workshops and talks about social change tell the reader/participant what the author/presenter ideally hopes they will come away thinking and believing. Our work together will be a collective response as we explore the roots that brought each of us to the Montessori way.
