The first principal of true teaching is that nothing can be taught, for the teacher is not an instructor, but rather a helper and a guide. Her role is to suggest and not impose. She does not actually train the pupil’s mind, but only shows them how to perfect their instruments of knowledge and helps and encourages them in the process. She does not impart knowledge, but shows how knowledge can be unfolded within oneself...
