About the Journal
The mission of the Holistic Education Review is to:
Enhance and broaden the scholarship of holistic education
Lift up diverse and emerging voices of holistic education practice
Connect the holistic education community
We envision an holistic educational movement that is embedded in K-12 and higher ed systems as a diverse and unifying force, dedicated to wellbeing and to uplifting the human spirit.
Statement of Purpose:
HER is a force for decolonization and equity in education and for broadening the umbrella of holistic education to include streams of social emotional learning, mindfulness, project-based learning, environmental education, and other aspects of education that honor the whole person, body, mind, and spirit.

We invite you to imagine all of us—authors, readers, educators, learners—in a circle together. In this circle we are engaged in a sacred moment that is familiar to most holistic educators—the opening ritual that initiates a class, a meeting, or a gathering. In this case, our ritual is initiating the journey of the new Holistic Education Review: Education for Meaning and Social Justice. I invite you to close your eyes and take three deep breaths: One for our past—with reverence for the legacy of holistic education. One for the present—noticing what is alive in our hearts. One for the future—with your exhale blowing forth hope toward the next Seven Generations of learners. May all be well.
Our theme for this first issue—Broadening the Circle of Holistic Education—represents the past and present of holistic education, while gazing toward the future.
