Tracks 1 through 9: An introductory lecture to Emotional Literacy Education with commentaries by Mark Zimmerman on Singer/Song Writer Jewel Kilcher's quotes from a 1997 interview at Mediadome.com®.

Jewel Kilcher was asked, "What should schools do to better educate children?"

Jewel replied, "It's a matter of teaching our children from younger ages. Of asking them what their passions are. Not how they're going to make a living, but what makes them happy. What dump things, what absolutely useless things, what fear-based limiting things we are taught. As kids we need to be asked and inspired and told, 'You have a little spirit. You're good by nature.' "

Jewel continues, "We need to be asked more about our dreams, and be allowed to daydream more. How is our life created? by our hands. If we live thoughtlessly, we just respond to our environment, instead of us controlling our environment. Nobody's taught that at a young age; I wish that I was taught that when I was six, because we can spend from age 6 to 18 figuring that out, and we're dumped off at age 18 and expected to figure it out. So we drink a lot and we go to college, and it's kind of unuseful."
