That moment post-divorce when you stop and think that you are ready to try again, that moment for me has been completely elusive and fleeting. I mean, I lived through a ten year marriage, an earth chattering divorce, then the untying of all the pieces that were intertwined with a human being that I currently felt betrayed by, trying to keep the kids unharmed by everything that is happening and all while trying to remember to just breath and live life myself. The process is insane and so much worse than the simplified version I just explained. And after all that, you are supposed to still want to do it again.

   In searching for the perfect education for my children I came to the realization that what I felt my children needed to succeed in every aspect of their life was either not offered or not easily found. So, me, just a regular mom with a semi-regular upbringing, took it upon myself to find as many programs and teachers, and put them all in one comprehensive portal to make it easy for everyone to find and use. I think most parents, as they are holding their newborn, sit back and go through all the ways they wished their life had been different. When choosing the right education for my children, I went through in my head all the things I wish I had learned at an early age.

We held our first event as a way to see how children would adapt to all types of workshops. We were blown away by how receptive they were. Sometimes inexperience is confused with capability. Just because a child has not had much experience with something does not mean they are not capable of embracing that experience. During our first event we put this to the test.

We mixed free play with more specific instruction. We shared experiences in yoga, emotions, herbs and healing, meditation, technology, and introspection. The experience was intriguing and entertaining. They opened up and shared and got to know each other in a deeper level. And the combination of opening them up to a deeper connection combined with free play created a fun and relaxing atmosphere in which they excelled.

     Who I am is a struggle faced daily. I am nobody. I am minute. I am a mom. I am a woman. Somehow those only seem insignificant  depending on your perspective, and like most of humanity, my perspective of myself changes on a daily basis. Some days I feel like my attempt to contribute to the conversation on education is irrational. Other days, I feel like great power flows through me and it needs to be shared.
