Trialogue: Education In The New World Order (1989)

Trialogue: Education In The New World Order
Terence McKenna, Rupert Sheldrake & Ralph Abraham
Esalen, Big Sur, California: 1989

How could the educational system be reformed and resacralized? An initiation-based educational model not confined to the rational or humanist worldview. Initiations into trades, professions and skills. Adolescent initiation rites. The workshop system of education as a model. Feminizing the educational system. The need for choice and a complete knowledge of history. A workshop voucher system with the interplay of different specialities. A spiritually based educational system with religious initiation.

Resacralizing education and re-visioning the workshop system. The incorporation of an initiatory quality throughout the educational system. Free-market economics in education. A self-initiating, self-propagating, self-organising and self-regulating system. A pioneering pilot project in an existing workshop centre. A 
devious way for achieving the resacralization of the world.
