Lhomon Education (LME) is a grassroots initiative fostering the development of innovative curricula designed specifically for Bhutanese students. The basis of the LME initiative is an alternative model of teacher training and curriculum development that integrates principles of Gross National Happiness (GNH) in the truest sense of the term. Based on the overarching mission of Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche’s Lhomon Society, and on the values and principles laid out in this document, LME is helping teachers create innovative GNH-based curricula for use in a variety of education environments. LME curriculum development workshops and teacher training seminars are open to a wide range of education institutions, including government schools, monasteries, rural education centers, and other formal and non-formal education institutions and initiatives in Bhutan.
As a pilot project, LME is being implemented at Chokyi Gyatsho Institute (CGI), a monastery in Dewathang, Samdrup Jongkhar, East Bhutan, under the auspices of the Samdrup Jongkhar Initiative. The objective is to create a set of twenty comprehensive secular educational units that can be used as a model for GNH-infused education and implemented in monasteries and possibly other schools and institutions in Bhutan. These integrated units will incorporate many of the learning objectives found in the standard Bhutanese educational system (i.e. math, science, social science, technology, health).
