Are you an unschooling parent longing for true partnership with your kids?
Are you part of a learning community (as a parent, facilitator or director) - and dream of learning how to co-create a conscious culture?
The Shift is a 7-day life-changing training for folks that want to transform how they relate to kids and support their learning, autonomy and freedom outside the conventional school system.
We like referring to The Shift as a Descooling Experience. Why? Because Deschooling is about the process of change that comes from walking away from systems that are limiting, harmful and disempowering. And that is what The Shift boils down to!
If you want to gain more freedom in life and build equitable & consent-based relationships with others and with yourself - this training is for you!
We come together to understand where our limiting beliefs & programmings come from and why it’s been so hard to change.
We do this by looking at many systems (not just schools) so that we can see how we have each internalized them.
Then we dismantle those limitations and begin to reprogram our thinking and communication.
The goal is to feel more confident in your non-conventional path; have more joy in your life & deepen our connection to the people around us (kids & adults alike).
Sounds yummy? We can assure you it is!
During the span of a week we focus on co-creating an intentional community built on consent, trust, authenticity and empathy. That’s the foundation for an optimal learning environment within which we all will unlearn and learn as much as we are ready for.
We practice tools of connection, liberation and communication to help us move into independence, interdependence, and equitable relationships.
What that looks like? Well, like a lot of play, group dynamics, art of hosting-techniques, deep reflecting, vulnerable conversations - and really anything the group dreams up!
All it takes is openness, willingness and commitment to the process.
When we use the word deschooling, we’re referring to the process of change that comes from walking away from systems that are limiting and harmful.
Why is it important?
As our world changes, we are being asked to change with it. It can feel difficult to move away from societal systems that are limiting and harmful, especially if it feels like you’re doing that work alone.
We believe that such change can be internalized more easily with practice and support. We created this training to allow participants and facilitators to work together to look within and clarify our beliefs, values, and purpose and how our behaviors can better align with them.
By questioning the limitations of our society and fear-based beliefs and developing tools to reclaim our innate potential, we can build relationships based on equity, authenticity and choice and in doing so we set out on a new path towards radical learning and freedom.
