The main aim of holistic education is to call forth from people an intrinsic reverence for life and a passionate love of learning. Unfortunately, many of today’s modern societies appear to focus on the pursuit of material possessions and career advancement. Arguing that spiritual growth is part and parcel of the personal, social and emotional development, education and care of youths, this paper present some key principals for educators and other professionals working with troubled youths and their families. It concludes that the well-being of our spiritual life not only goes a long way toward overcoming the sense of fragmentation and alienation that so many of our students feel, but will also helps our next generation lead more meaningful lives.
