What Others are Saying about Conscious Teachers

“Conscious Teachers lights one path which, intentionally and collectively, may nudge us to move in positive directions as we learn how to play/work together in aligning ourselves with universal processes.”Linda Easley, Professor of Anthropology at Siena Heights University

“Friends, love, learning, care…. These kids are going to grow up to be very different adults. They are hands on, sensory rich…. growing up to be true, deep, wise, interested human beings.”Jean Houston, on her experience of the Upland Hills School

“I take great joy in commending Phillip Moore and his Upland Hills Ecological Awareness Center to you. I’m personally convinced of the competence of Moore and his associates, of their integrity and of their realistic commitment to society. Warmly, faithfully,Buckminster Fuller, April 20, 1979

Our Philosophy

A Trim Tab is a conceptual tool taken from engineering. It is a miniature rudder, on the edge of a larger rudder, which if moved, builds a low pressure that pulls the rudder around taking almost no effort at all.

Buckminster Fuller, American architect, systems theorist, author, designer and inventor, and Philip Moore’s mentor, teacher and adopted grandfather, lived his life as if he were a trim tab. Bucky’s World Game was the ultimate expression of his life’s work. The intention of World Game was to make the world work for 100% of humanity without endangering the natural world.

Trimtab.in under the guidance of Phil Moore is acting on behalf of all children to change the course of education, so that every child will be treated as a genius and will be nourished as a sacred being.

“What can happen if an entire community makes a commitment to become the Trim Tab for a paradigm shift in the field of education?

What We Do and Why

Trimtab.in specializes in creating and offering coherent palpable experiences for teachers, parents, grand parents, administrators, students and seekers who are ready to devote their consciousness to something much bigger than themselves – in service of shifting the paradigm of education for the future of children.

By working in small groups, using the tools of meditation, self reflection, introspection, and intuition to bond – initiatives that act as Trim Tabs arise from our collective insights, which we then carry into the world together.

Our Philosophy In Action

Upland Hills School is a Michigan Independent School located in northern Oakland County on 35 acres of woods and rolling meadows in Oxford, Michigan.

The Upland Hills Ecological Awareness Center is dedicated to providing experiences and resources that promote a sustainable relationship with the natural world and each other.

Both projects were actualized by by a team led by co-founder of both ventures, and founder of Trimb.in, Phillip Moore.


Upland Hills School (Oxford, MI) grad, Eric Roberts, talks about being a spacecraft engineer and about the profound influence his Upland Hills School education had on his life and career.


Author, teacher, philosopher, Jean Houston, talks about Upland Hills School in Oxford, Michigan during her visit.


Michael Leone describes the profound and positive influence that his Upland Hills School experience has had on the course of his life.

Every child is born a genius. It is my conviction from having watch a great number of babies grow up that all of humanity is born a genius and becomes de-geniused very rapidly by unfavourable circumstances and by the frustration of all their inbuilt capabilities.

– Buckminster Fuller
