Montessori Congress-Portland, Oregon
The line-up of speakers and their messages were truly remarkable. Dr.Brian Swimme, Lynne Lawrence, Molly O’Shaughnessy, Dr. Adele Diamond, Sanford Jones, Paul Hawken, Rukmini Ramachandran, Trevor Eissler, David Kahn, Laurie Ewert-Krocker, and our own Eduardo Cuevas are just a few of the outstanding speakers who inspired and informed us while touching our souls. The Montessori Elevator Speech Contest challenged and entertained, Educateurs Sans Frontieres provided historical context and information about current Montessori outreach around the world and the American Montessori Learning Collaborative offered a vision of what can happens when great organizations build a platform based on the strength of common goals.
Without a doubt, Dr. Vandana Shiva’s final keynote address, an eloquent and passionate plea for the preservation of diversity, sacred in both nature and society, was a never-to-be forgotten highlight.
Audio recordings of all of the Keynote and Break-out lectures are available to order through “Backcountry Recording” - www.BackcountryRecording.com (904) 460-2379.
