So finally I have put this space up and in action…. Who knows how often i will post?, but I love documenting even simply for myself the ebbs and flow of our heart centred learning days. Call it what you want home schooling, un schooling, education outside the system, natural learning… I am not too fussed to squeeze into some category, we just do life our way as we all should right?!
I love to look back even sometimes just as little as a few months and realise how much they have grown, changed, evolved… time seems to whip us up and carry us forward and before we know it the little people we once cradled are no longer and we are face to face with a new version of the same beautiful soul, also a new version of our mother selves has evolved to meet the child that stands before us. It’s a wild ride hey!
I love seeing how free the kids are to explore or not things that they are interested in and also not to waste their energies where they are not so drawn to. That they can spend days at a time reading or creative playing or snuggled on the couch watching movies. We don’t strive to do extra ordinary things but some how this magic happens and we go on the most extraordinary adventures, even in our own backyard or kitchen. The days are a mixture of full and slow, busy and nourishing, we tailor our lives to what suits the stages we are at. In the 4 years of this journey thus far we have changed and moved through so many seasons and experiences and learnt alongside each other. My eyes have been opened so wide along with my perspectives of what is possible if we are just left to be. In so many ways I am on this journey alongside them and perhaps they are miles ahead because I have so much conditioning to break through, attachments to let go of and deep learning experiences to be had. They are there already there…
A few things have led me here, blogging I mean, lots has led me here to home education but Ill go into that another time. Mostly the desire to move away from social media. I am just realising the more I am away the more present I am in my life. I also feel like social media triggers these anxious tendencies that seem to be deeply embedded in my cells and as I try to move towards a sense of wholeness within, I can feel these places aren’t safe or serving me. I want to place my energy towards spaces and energies that feel aligned and where I want to flourish. I am in this big transition within myself and un schooling has led me to this place, I guess from the outside it may seem like I am a completely different person to who I was 10 years ago but in fact I am more myself and stripped back now, then ever. It feels like I have tried on many hats, explored difference pieces and parts of myself, mostly the parts I thought people might like better or that would please people, but now here I am just sharing more from this honest space of truth.
So I hope if you are reading this that you endeavour to follow along… I would love to have you on this journey and perhaps you are on your own journey and our journeys may beautifully collide… I hope you find this a place of inspiration, possibility, adventure, honesty and exploration not only into the inner working of our world but your perceptions and beliefs around what makes you and your family live a life that is truly joyful an authentic.
