Homeschool Healing Circle
A weekly homeschool circle for kids 6-9, that focuses on the developing well being through engaging in the healing arts and social action. Thursdays 12:30-4:30.
Healing can arise from many entry points and it is my hope that this group will navigate terrain of personal, community, and collective healing.
Topics are emergent and are developed cooperatively by the kids, families, and me. I hope that we will build relationships with local teachers, healers, and organizations through the year based on our interests and passions. The group is grounded in my desire to support kids in developing healthy relationships to their emotions, body, and spirit. And create a space that kids can grow up in community that practices “power with” models of learning and relating so that we can heal “power over” forms of education, training, and relating.
While specific topics and modalities will emerge based on interest, we will have core practices that develop over the year to support us, including:
Making altars to support meaning making
Embodiment practices that help children regulate stress and build awareness.
Bodywork and touch modalities for self care and family care
Wild harvesting and medicine making
Deepening reciprocity with land and spirit, making land offerings
Creating ceremonial spaces to mark changes in season and cycles
Taking social action to support change
Games and adventuring :)

Nature Play Group
A weekly, homeschool, nature group for kids age 4-6 that combines nature connection and project based learning. A warm and nurturing space is held for children to rest and find adventures. Together, we gather in nature, sharpen our senses, play games, and build relationships to the earth and each other. Seasonal stories and activities encourage children to pay attention to the natural world and build a rhythmic relationship to life. We engage in regular, project based, environmental justice actions that allow kids and teachers to collaborate on activities that protect the earth, wildlife, and human rights.
