Kathleen Norris on Childhood Epiphanies

From her book The Cloister Walk:

"If we teach children when they're young to reject their epiphanies, then it's no wonder that we end up with so many adults who are mathematically, poetically, and theologically illiterate."

As usual, Kathleen's on to something. Now, how do we reawaken our deadness to epiphanies?
