From the Publisher“In this highly inspiring book, Laura Rendón offers a road map of what is possible if we are willing to embrace a vision of education that balances the inner life and ways of knowing and thinking with the outer life of just action and compassionate service to the world. She challenges us to embrace a pedagogy of wholeness that has the potential of totally transforming our schools and academies by reclaiming them as soulful places of relationship-centered learning and teaching rooted in social justice and equity. Through her moving and authentic examples of herself and others, Rendón creates promise, hope and inspiration by giving us the framework and tools to make this vision of education a reality.”
"Sentipensante Pedagogy provides a helpful invitation and charitable contribution to the ongoing dialogue between different visions of pedagogy."
"Rendón assists the transformation of teaching and learning in higher education into a balance, a harmony, between two concepts such as intellectualism and intuition, teaching and learning, the learner and the learned material, and Western and non-Western ways of knowing. She explores the need for a new dream of education, the experience of creating an integrative and consonant pedagogy, and the experience of using such a pedagogy rooted in social justice. Among specific discussions are learning from another's story, refashioning the dream, the courage to chart a different path, and sustaining the soul that embraces a different truth."
"This masterpiece...is about inclusion, one in which faculty and students become one in recognizing and accepting their responsibility [for] social justice and liberation. All who [teach] must read this book. It should be considered required marerial in diversity, social sciences and education courses. If I must select a word to describe this book, it would be ¡ Magnífico!"
“Rendón has written a pedagogic masterpiece with immense potential to transform teaching and learning in the K-12 system. Her pedagogy gives voice to what teachers have been yearning for in their hearts and minds.”
