“My dreams have always been my teachers. What [this] dream teaches me is a new way of knowing something I have always believed: that relationship is at the heart of teaching. In the sharing of each other’s stories, in knowing one another, in replacing myth with understanding, the teacher and the student become one. As they experience inquiry, exploration and discovery together, as they struggle together through common experiences, as they are actively involved together in the uncovering of truth, the self-confidence growing in the student is reflected back to the teacher, and the teacher’s confidence begins to be restored. Teacher and student are both moving toward wholeness.”
