Gallegos Nava mention the need for a paradigm shift in education, as we are in an epochal change, a change of consciousness which implies the presence of a crisis that must be overcome with time if we want to live in a better world with spiritual beings living a human experience as noted by the author. (2008:17) This Holistic education aims to be the conduit for the evolution of consciousness of mankind, from an egocentric stage-existential characteristic of the modern and postmodern cultures to their own spiritual holistic awareness of sustainable trans-modern culture , move from a fragmented consciousness of all, going from information to wisdom, human values and ideals of the nature of being self-centered identity to the spiritual. (Gallegos Nava: 2003.14) In this regard, the author mentioned, it also makes important contributions regarding how the individual develops his consciousness, to achieve the highest level of spirituality. According to Gallegos Nava (2003:77-81) where multilevel perspective, multidimensionality education can be seen in all five levels, which can be seen from the integral handle as holons Ken Wilber is partly within wholes . These five all educational levels are related to the evolution of consciousness developed as follows: The first level works holistic educator individual conscience, the needs and interests and goals of the student, his personality that make it unique and recognizes that each subject has its ways of learning.

The concept of learning communities is used by holistic educators to identify schools or comprehensive educational environments have two main principles: 1 .- It moves away from the idea that school is for children to learn to the view that all members of the organization to learn. 2 .- Provide support and conditions designed to facilitate spiritual experience. In an education based on this concept they say NO! to the dominant vision of the modern era with its values of standardization, materialism, efficiency, profit and power, instead it follows a path which recognizes the various human dimensions, in moral contexts, cultural and ecological as well as various learning pathways and understanding the experience as a guide to the evolution of consciousness. The college or school that pays attention to the cultivation of their souls, become sanctuaries for both students and teachers. This means that the school should be an integrated system of souls, not so much a place but a state of consciousness where these can flourish. Both students and teachers look forward to being in school because they feel that their spirits are nourished by the environment that there are, respect, care and reverence, humans feel valid, the prevailing love instead of fear, feel heard at heart level and there is a sense of community. In this vein, it promotes spontaneity, fun and creativity of both students and teachers, taking risks in their learning, there are no recipes for learning, the non-verbal is as important as direct communication, so that our presence has little impact on the members, I focus on the aesthetic environment of the educational environment, is practiced sow truth and authenticity, but above all fraternity among all participants.
