Overview


Many children experience some form of divine union, see visions, or have an inkling of ephemeral truth and wisdom—connections to the spiritual world that they often cannot articulate. If overlooked or ignored, a child's spiritual development quickly fades or disappears entirely.

Tobin Hart, psychologist, professor, and pioneer of the ChildSpirit movement, explains how to recognize and identify children's deep spiritual connections. Children's spirituality is an important part of the development of identity and self-actualization, and recognizing and nurturing this growth process is critical for parents, educators, and therapists. Based on more than ten years of interviews, this book combines startling firsthand accounts of secret spiritual lives, including recollections from adults who have forgotten or repressed such childhood experiences. Dr. Hart's exploration reveals the astonishing complexity of inner spirituality and exposes children's innate ability to access wisdom and knowledge far beyond their years.

Nimbly interweaving insights and practical advice into a body of scientific study, The Secret Spiritual World of Children provides an entirely accessible and practical guide for nurturing the heightened spiritual sensitivity in children and reclaiming it as adults.

    Hey, world, read this book!

    Once in a while an exceptional book comes along and you want to scream at the top of your lungs, 'Hey, world, read this book - it will forever change the way your children are treated.' Oh, if only I could make such a scream be heard. 'The Secret Spiritual World of Children' covers everything, not just dreams and visions, angels and fairies. It covers life, that pulsebeat within us that propels action, growth, societies and cultures - our history as humans on this very big world called Earth. Whatever you need to help you understand your children, speak with them, encourage them, help them - even practical and easy exercises and suggestions - all of this is lovingly tucked into this gem of a book. But Hart doesn't stop there. He goes on to speak to the child in all of us; and as he does, you will recognize yourself and your own childhood unveiled in a new way. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. P. M. H. Atwater, L.H.D., author of 'The New Children and Near-Death Experiences' and 'We Live Forever: The Real Truth about Dying.'
