This perspective of human experience can methodologically distinguish four dimensions of education holistic solely for purposes of communication and presentation on the nature of the education, which is central in the human spirit that is in fact the center of holistic education. The four major dimensions of holistic education are: to study education holistic must analyze the context where they develop the four levels of the Kosmos, based on the development of consciousness. The biosphere (animal, plant, life) begins life on Earth. Fisiosfera (matter) is only stuff. The Noosphere (mind) develops thinking on human beings. Teosfera (spirit) develops the spirit in human beings. Each level of consciousness is more complex than the previous one, because it includes more than the universe, more truth and depth is why that makes it superior. The Kosmos is a series of layers inside each other where all are intertwined in a way holistic; to integrate these four levels and keep them in harmony we will be forming a base of a culture of peace and sustainability.

Holistic education is not limited to the political and social realities but transcends them and includes the level spiritual developing all aspects of the human being; It is the way to go of instrumental rationality to the evolution of consciousness. To evolve our consciousness we realize that the world is a living organism; but unfortunately this world in which we live this suffering from climate change, earthquakes, cold fronts, and one that other phenomenon or natural disaster, which are already too many and we have not tabled due attention to such lack of control that our nature is suffering. Holistic education handles some basic principles for its development, which form part of the holistic curriculum as it is: transdisciplinary, principle of integrity, regain the vital relationships, investigation of their origin, different types of apprenticeships, to mention a few.
