Movie veteran Shirley Maclaine has blamed outdated education methods for mankind's spiritual ignorance - and the wars we fight around the world.
The Terms of Endearment actress, who has a strong belief in reincarnation, insists spirituality and meditation should be taught to young schoolchildren in the west - so we can learn how to stay in touch with the past and the true value of peace.
She tells U.S. talk show host Oprah Winfrey, "If they (educators) would teach us from the time we're little to meditate and get in touch with all that our soul knows we wouldn't fight so much."
