Soul Matters in Education focuses on the importance of the inner life of children in both parenting and education. Caprice had the honor of reading the pre-publication manuscript of her good friend, Ellen Hall, to discuss her new book, Soul Matters in Education.
Ellen is a master teacher and former Principal of Oak Grove School, a Krishnamurti school in Ojai, CA. Ellen started and ran an alternative high school, founded the California Teachers College, and was Executive Director at Meditation Mount. She also was on the City Council of Ojai and served as Mayor.
