At the 2022 Living Education Retreat, my friend Dawn Duran presented her talk, The Thoughtful Citizen: Mason’s Wisdom For Today, and has graciously agreed to share it with you! Below you will find a pdf of all the quotes she shares and you will find that helpful as you listen. I hope you enjoy this slice of the LER, particularly for those who couldn’t share the inspiring weekend with us in person.
Dawn states that, “In modern day, information abounds: on television, on the internet, on the radio, in the newspapers, and so on. There is no way to escape the influx! Charlotte Mason famously said, ‘it cannot be too often said that information is not education.’ She also admonished us to thoroughly consider issues for ourselves, without outside influence, and to avoid embracing ‘opinions in the air.’ In this talk, we will consider Mason’s wisdom and its continued relevance to our lives today.”Quotes-fromThe-Thoughtful-Citizen-Dawn-Duran-LER-2022
