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.
