Do You Need a Guru?

Understanding the Student-Teacher Relationship in an Era of False Prophets

by Mariana Caplan, PhD

In the 21st century, Mariana Caplan predicts, there will be a shift back to the student-teacher relationship as we realise the limitations of trying to "do it on our own". However, this teacher-student relationship will have to be created anew to reflect our new awareness. Caplan responds to the challenge of spiritual authority by suggesting the principle and practice of conscious disciplineship model that places the power and responsibility back into the hands and hearts of the spiritual student.
