In schools around the world every year students have increasing behavior problems with decreasing attention and other learning disorders. In Sarnath (India) India, two italian teachers, De Biasi and Giacomin, have brought a new revolutionary school method called “Alice Project” born to deal with these problems. For this purpose the teachers invite kids to meditation and self-knowledge, using periodic assessments. Also yoga, ayurvedic massage each other, and collective prayer (all religions are respected), are included in the curriculum as practices useful to develop bio-psycho-spiritual unit. After researches and encouraging results, Alice Project is now regarded as the "Pedagogy of the Third Millenium".
