TEACHER PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT- A PRIORITY OF THE PRESENT AGE
Keywords:Self Realization, transformation, thoughtless awareness, physical health, yoga
AbstractThe author discusses the concept of teacher personal development with the purpose of revealing the necessity of including aspects that, up to the present, have been ignored. The new context of globalization and development based on knowledge and innovation has opened the necessity of an increased focus on the quality of teaching. As a function of human psychology, quality cannot be pursued without considering intuition, creativity and introspection skills. The paper examines the possibility of stimulating the inborn capabilities of teachers by resorting to a recent method of activating the Individuation process postulated by C.G.Jung.
