Gilbert Mane’s idea is to immerse children in the best and finest ideas from a range of different traditions and cultures to show them pathways to making their ideas live, and make their own contribution to this rich human archive. Gilbert Mane has been the Headmaster of John Colet School, a primary school in Belrose since 1989. He practised as a solicitor from 1980 and has a lifelong interest in history, public affairs and both Eastern and Western philosophy, particularly those involving practical methods of inner stillness and meditation. He contributed a chapter on values education to Education and the Ideal. And his first book 7 Steps to Freedom is based on several decades of practical experience in self-awareness techniques. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
