「自我探索」是教育的核心價值,也是許多人一輩子所追尋的目標。從認識自我開始,了解內在的天賦與熱情,進而觀察周遭萬物,藉由感受來培養同理心,並發揮想像力,最後透過行動與回饋來予以修正。

本期《光華》深入美學、哲學、理財、體育等不同面向的教學場域,帶您體驗頗富巧思、極具啟發的教學現場,透過跨領域、跨學科的創新教育,讓人進入一場又一場自我探索與實踐之旅。

溫柔生產的議題在國際間蔚為風潮,在台灣也有一群來自學界、醫界,以及其他領域的媽媽們正持續努力推動著。這種將生產視為自然而然的生理過程,結合現代醫學與順勢療法,形成多樣且人性化的生產風貌。

同樣突破制式框架的,還有台北捷運的音景巧思。這融入各站的環境音樂,輕盈又愉悅地出現在閘門警示、路線轉乘、列車進站等時刻,下次搭乘台北捷運時,不妨駐足聆聽,感受設計者為您精心準備的音景饗宴。

此外,突破傳統水墨畫框架的王南雄,把西方寫生、素描、透視等繪畫原理,轉化至傳統水墨畫裡,更用顏料為傳統山水添色。這種對美的追求,亦是對自身探索的領悟,進而讓作品與觀賞者交流,共同體會這無窮無盡的美感。

一粒種子,只要放對了地方,自然會順著骨架扶搖直上,而透過書寫與閱讀,就是形塑自我的最佳途徑。「望見書間」與「印尼筆會台灣分會」就是這樣一個能輕鬆轉換心情的地方,不只能讓在台灣的東南亞移工、新住民、留學生有為自己說故事的表達空間,更能透過閱讀,找尋那最真實、不需隱藏的自己。

CANDY婚紗工作室」則是另一個能讓越南新住民敞開心胸的地方,負責人黎雲英長期參與越南新住民在台灣之公共事務,可說是熱心幫助越南鄉親的代表人物。每一個離鄉背井的遊子,都有著自己的遺憾與無奈,而台灣這塊土地可愛的地方,就在於有著無限的包容力,去接納、去乘載來自四面八方的人生故事。

The Path to Self-Knowledge

Ivan Chen /tr. by Scott Williams


Deep exploration of oneself is a key aspect of education, and for many people a lifelong pursuit. Knowing oneself, understanding one’s own gifts and passions, and then observing the world, develops empathy and imagination, and when combined with action and giving back to society, encourages personal rectification.

This issue of Taiwan Panorama takes you on a multidisciplinary journey of self-­exploration by delving into facets of education ranging from aesthetics and philosophy to money management and physical education.

“Gentle birthing” has become something of an international trend, one that mothers working in academia, medicine, and other fields are now actively promoting in Taiwan. By treating birth as a natural physiological process and embracing alternative medicine, gentle birthing has given rise to a more flexible and humanistic approach to childbirth.

The Tai­pei Metro’s soundscape program is similarly groundbreaking, with relaxing, upbeat ambient music being played in stations, and musical signatures being introduced for everything from turnstile warnings to notifications for arriving trains and transfers. The next time you ride the Metro, take a moment to enjoy this carefully prepared auditory banquet.

Artist Wang Lan ­Hsiung’s explorations outside the lines of traditional ink-wash painting represent yet another innovation. Wang has transformed ink-wash painting through his use of elements from Western­ art such as painting from life, sketching, and perspective, and has even added colors to traditional ink-wash landscapes. He treats his aesthetic pursuit as an exploration of himself, one that unites observer and artwork in a collaborative experience of beauty.

It is a truism that a seed planted in the right place will shoot up tall and strong. The SEAMi bookstore and the Taiwan chapter of Indonesia’s Forum Lingkar Pena are creating fertile soil for migrant seeds by providing Southeast-Asian immigrants, migrant workers and students in Taiwan with a relaxed environment in which to share their thoughts and feelings, tell their stories, and find their true selves through reading and study.

The Candy Wedding Salon similarly offers Vietnamese migrants a space in which they can relax and grow. Owner Le Van Anh has been involved with public affairs affecting Vietnamese migrants for many years, and is a passionate advocate for fellow Vietnamese in Taiwan.

Every sojourner carries their own frustrations and regrets with them abroad. Taiwan is leveraging its inclusiveness by accepting and integrating these migrants and their stories.
