Spiritual Values and Education

International Foundation for Holistic Education Holistic Doctor of E ducation and spiritual values Holistic Education Maria de Lourdes Ramos Macias January 2010 At present the events live from day to day we give a clear indication of the urgent need to change the way they are educated our children and youth of the country and the world, which is a sign of continued violence, robberies, kidnappings, drug addiction, alcoholism, gangs and a host of social problems to society, regardless of the geographical region that is. In this sense we can say that the education of a people is an important factor in its development, therefore it is necessary transformation and innovation in it when it is observed that the development will weaken the human species and the planet . In modernity, consumerism has been absorbed into society, we are currently at the time of hedonism and takes away all value and meaning to human life because everything is based on pleasure, either materialistic in buying designer clothes, visit nightclubs, jewelry, giving a status, acceptance or belonging to social groups or fun. Likewise can be said that technological advances accentuate the separation between the material and spiritual, giving priority to things and not humans (Santillan 1996:7) Nihilism is another problem that Ramon Gallegos Nava defined as relativism moral, is a philosophy which states that nothing is good or bad in itself that everything is culturally relative and depends on how you define the subject or the community concerned (2007:43) In this case, you can not judge what is good and bad because everyone defines it as you see fit.
