The investigation reported in this book began as an attempt to clear away some of the uncertainty by finding out how ordinary children talk about their spirituality. At the same time, however, it is hidden because of a culturally constructed forgetfulness which allows us to ignore the obvious. If we are to take spirituality seriously we need to understand how it has come to be ignored and why it is sidelined in the educational system.

David Hay argues for the inclusion of spiritual awareness as a cross-curricular element in the school syllabus to promote the development of morality and social cohesion.

David Hay, Rebecca Nye. David Hay argues for the inclusion of spiritual awareness as a cross-curricular element in the school syllabus to promote the development of morality and social cohesion. This stimulating book will encourage educators, parents and others involved in teaching children to consider new approaches to foster children's natural spiritual development.

Contrary to the increasingly prevalent view that religion is out of date and out of touch, this broader consideration of spirituality could be a valuable tool for developing young people's understanding issues of social injustice and the dynamics of becoming disenfranchized from society.

This carefully researched book about the spiritual lives of children, independent of their religious beliefs, is refreshing and heartening. The authors conclude that children naturally bond to clouds, to trees, to animals, to other people, to almost anything and everything, visible and invisible, but that modern culture, especially schools, deaden this relational life by isolating children - teaching them to be alienated individuals half-alive in worlds of facts. It reminds me of the works of Kent Nerburn, that describe Native Americans living in worlds of relation rather than modern bubbles.

The second is an update to the excellent first addition. A classic in this area of scholarship.

*The Spirit of the Child* introduces the topic of children's spirituality, making use of David Hay and Rebecca Nye's valuable research of children in England. David Hay, formerly the director of the Alister Hardy Research Centre at Oxford University, and Rebecca Nye, at the University of Cambridge, offer a theory of spirituality that includes religion but is not limited to this area. Spirituality is marked by unusually intense experiences of many possible varieties, and is an inborn aspect of human nature, the result they believe of evolutionary development. Yet Western culture has suppressed this aspect of children to the point that they are often embarrased and self-conscious about the topic. The authors describe their own research with children, including the identifying terms that children use to describe spiritual experiences. They also describe previous research that relates to spirituality of youngsters. Children's spirituality is an important, emerging area of child development that needs to be considered in greater detail by researchers and theorists, as children's spirituality is an almost completely overlooked area of children's development, yet it deserves careful consideration by educators, parents, and others interested in children.

The authors report and reflect on the results of their research on children's perceptions of spiritual experience. Based on interviews with children, the authors come to describe the spirituality of children as "relational consciousness" -- the child's innate sense of relationship with others, creation, one's self, and God.
This significant research supports the work of Sofia Cavalletti, Jerome Berryman and others in providing children with access to a language that is worthy of the experience children already have of "God's presence" in their lives. It also supports the work of Vivian Gussin Paley, in which she engages children as young as 2 years old, in telling and acting out their stories -- tapping into the child's innate capacity to find and to give order and meaning to an otherwise ambiguous world through play and fantasy. Moreover, the research provides a basis for creating curricula designs that integrate rather than fragment the child's studies in various disciplines.
The research invites religious educators to look again at their approach to religious education. Ultimately, a primary objective in religious education, as in all of education, is not to indoctrinate but to engage the children in the use of skills that enable them to reflect on the meaning of their unfolding experience and to share that with others. This book is valuable not only to religious educators but to anyone responsible for providing childcare.
