Teaching With Bravery: Meditation and Heart Advice for Teachers
About This Resource
“Teaching With Bravery is a deeply visionary book with direct, alive expression about teaching as a method of inner as well as social transformation. McLellan joins diverse predecessors like Parker Palmer, bell hooks, and Arthur Zajonc in profound trust in the inner potential of every human being, the daring possibilities of the classroom, and the urgency of authentic teaching from within. His book is accessible and fresh, his message transformative. Recommended for teachers of any level, any subject.”

About the book
Teachers are often overwhelmed, undervalued, and disempowered in their roles. At the same time, they are uniquely situated to influence the lives of young people and even to change the world. Teaching With Bravery offers a new vision for teachers as the architects of a more compassionate society, as well as methods to engage with teaching as a journey of self-realization.
A guidebook for teachers or anyone interested in uncovering their own, innate wisdom as a foundation for transforming their work with children and young people, Teaching With Bravery has short chapters exploring elements of teaching and ways to join practice mind with life in the classroom. It focuses on the teacher’s experience, and includes contemplations and exercises.
