Abstract: Of all the individuals that we call Transcendentalists, Bronson Alcott was the most devoted to education and nourishing children’s spirituality in that context. At the Temple school in Boston he held conversations with children on spiritual questions that drew forth the children’s inner wisdom. This paper describes his work as an educator and discusses how his ideas are relevant to today’s educators working in the field of spirituality in education.
