Abstract
Holism has to do with the state of being whole. ‘Whole’ is derived from Old English word, hal, meaning, whole in the sense of uninjured, intact, safe, and healthy. This etymology takes us straight into the heart of the matter concerning holistic education: we of current civilization urgently need holistic pedagogy today in response to the hurt and damage that is experienced everywhere on this planet, to the point of threatening the very viability of sentient existence. A holistic paradigm of education including teacher education is for healing.
