Dr Mark Hensman 'Wired for "Why?" -- neurology and spirituality 'An educator with a theological background who has become interested in neurology and what new findings this science has to offer to our understanding of learning and spirituality. This interest was sparked by research for his doctoral studies when he observed two villages in western Thailand over a two year period, one that was predominantly Catholic and the other, Buddhist. Later he wrote an unpublished paper called 'The Neurology of Spirituality in Secular Education' which has formed the basis for a new values-based approach to learning at the Harrow International Schools. Dr Hensman has been a headmaster in New Zealand and, for seven years, at Harrow International School, Bangkok. He is currently Director of Schools for Harrow International.
