Shaping Noospheric Adults with Montessori Cosmic Education:

Early Childhood through the Secondary Level

Livestreamed Presentation by Jennifer Morgan, President, Deeptime Network


This presentation was part of the N2 Conference — The Noosphere at 100: The Future of Human Collective Consciousness

Sponsored by the Human Energy Project, this conference took place at the International House, Berkeley, CA, Nov. 17-19, 2023.

Presentation Abstract: Montessori schools worldwide are daily shaping Noospheric adults of tomorrow through Montessori Cosmic Education, one of the first curricula to situate all learning inside the larger arc of cosmic evolution. Montessori Cosmic Education centers on: enthusing students to their inmost core, nested Great Stories, a pedagogical scaffolding that connects all subjects inside the cosmic story, and a deep understanding of planes of development. It was developed by Maria Montessori and her son Mario Montessori in the 1940s. Linking Montessori Cosmic Education with the Teilhard lineage (Berry, Swimme, Tucker, etc.), Big History (Christian, Spier, etc.), Gaia Systems Theory (Margulis, Lovelock, etc.), and others can help nurture Noospheric consciousness. The Montessori lineage has massive reach through Montessori schools worldwide and is a significant force today in the goal of developing the Noosphere.
