Encounter gathers leaderships to speak about the School of the União do Vegetal
| June 15, 2017
The opening of the II Encounter of Spiritual Orientation with Children and Adolescents gathered together more than 600 people, among them directors of the Center, Mestres of the Origin, family members of Mestre Gabriel and associates of the União do Vegetal, in Brasília-DF.
Associates from the 17 regions of Brazil and the United States participated in the Encounter with the objective of drawing the first outlines of the future school of the União do Vegetal. The Encounter reunites people connected to Spiritual Orientation in the Nucleos and Authorized Distributions, as well as educators and other collaborators from the Center.
Fulfilling the Word of the Mestre
The General Representative Mestre, Clóvis Cavalieri Rodrigues de Carvalho, highlighted the embryonic character of the project of the school of the União do Vegetal and the importance of working a pedagogical model that would be in harmony with the teachings of Mestre Gabriel, founder of the Center. “We need to build a model that has permanent principles and methods, with durability and constancy that can attend to our children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and so on.”
Mestres and members of the Council of the Recordation of the Teachings of Mestre Gabriel, José Luiz de Oliveira, Francisco Herculano de Oliveira, Raimundo Monteiro de Souza and Roberto Evangelista were present at the opening of the works and remembered the word of Mestre Gabriel in which he says that one day the União do Vegetal will come to have a school. Mestre José Luiz mentioned the Escola 22 de Julho ( July 22nd School), at the old Headquarters of the UDV, which is today the José Gabriel da Costa Memorial, in Porto Velho-RO. The school, simple and small, was Mestre Gabriel’s idea: “Francisca and Josefa, Counselors in the União do Vegetal, were professors and taught the children at that time; they made scholastic reinforcement. There, (Escola 22 de Julho) was already a beginning of this school,” he tells.
