This article attempts to identify some key principles and suggestions for implementing a holistic approach to education in a traditional public school setting; specifically, I will identify ten suggestions and comment on each. It feels necessary to discuss the context that generated the outline of this article. This article concerns the experience of students that were enrolled in the MA program in Holistic and Integrative Education at California State University, San Bernardino, a program and approach that has been implemented with twelve cohorts over a period of more than 20 years, recognized by its students (e.g., London, 2013, 2019) and the professional community as an exemplar program in transformative education (e.g., identified as one of three exemplar transformative programs in higher education in Duerr, 2003).
