Holistic education encompasses a wide range of philosophical orientations and pedagogical practices. Its focus is on wholeness, and it attempts to avoid excluding any significant aspects of the human experience. It is an eclectic and inclusive movement whose main characteristic is the idea that educational experiences foster a less materialistic and a more spiritual worldview  along with more dynamic and holistic views of reality It also proposes that  educational experience promote a more balanced development of – and cultivate the relationship among – the different aspects  of  the individual(intellectual, physical, spiritual, emotional, social and Aesthetic ), as well as the relationships between the individual and other people, the individual and natural environment, the inner- self of students and external. world, emotion and reason, different discipline of knowledge and different form of knowing. holistic education is concerned with life experience, not with narrowly defined'' basic skills".
