"Self-Education is learning to see for yourself." dh


Self-education is most valuable only when it is reality based. The Dalai Lama tells us, "If your mind is bias, you can not see." It takes an open mind to see clearly. If we hold tightly to our own likes and dislikes, as if those choices define us, we will be too busy to witness reality itself as it unfolds moment to moment. Reality based self-education is not only learning to see for oneself, it is also the endless process of eroding our own ego structure so that we can see without distortion. It is usually our own wishful and/or fearful thoughts that block and distorts our view. In fact, sometimes we see nothing but our own self-centered thought structures and mistakenly think that's who we are. In reality, we are not our thoughts. Rather, we are that which is aware of the thoughts.

Zen Home School is a simple interactive website offering suggestions for combining Zen, Home, and School. Zen is meditation that increases our mindfulness awareness. Home is where we live and how we live. School is learning, 24/7. Here, we support self-education that helps young people and anyone else to mature with openness, curiosity, skills, and creativity. Deb Huntley hopes that this website helps your independent educational quest for honest learning, or at least that it helps you discern a beneficial direction.

Music Education  Music Maitri is what we call our free online Music Education guide. Music Maitri is making friends with oneself through music. Our plan builds musical skills developmentally, gradually over a span of 16 years in a child's life. It starts at about age 2 1/2 years, and continues through age 18. Of course modifications can be made, and it could begin at any age including adult. Just following this outline can give any student a wonderful musical foundation that builds self-confidence while simultaneously building learning skills that are also used in reading, writing and mathematics. Music Education is a gift for a lifetime. Learn how and when to introduce your child to song, dance, and instruments that they can handle. Each phase of Music Maitri is a foundation for the next period of development. Nothing pays off more in the long run, than gradual and natural musical skill development that makes sense.

Democracy Education The failure of civic education in America today is enabling an elite, minute percentage of our population to manipulate politics, trade, wealth, and laws to their advantage. This section of our ZHS Online Curriculum is a free crash-course on the principles of true American Democracy. Review why the whole world has loved the Constitutional rule of law in America and remember why our Constitutional Democracy has been a bright light for human freedom in the world for well over 200 years. Teach real Democracy Education. When Ben Franklin was asked what kind of government America would have, he replied, "A Republic, if you can keep it."

Physical Education ~ Taoist Wisdom Find the world's cutting edge east-west teachings of the universal energy, Chi (Qi.) While the western focus is mainly on muscles, all the ancient Qi practices (like Qigong, Tai Chi, Kung Fu and others,) are based on understanding the Qi energy patterns of the body. This energy is now called Bio-electricity by science. Whether a parent, teacher, healer, Martial Artist, dancer, or physician, the scientific information and clear practices offered here could help you develop and deepen your understanding much further. Children will only benefit from your expanding understanding of how the energy of life really works. This information is transformative. Physical Education horsewagon
