Free "telesummit" on empowering children

I came across a great resource: a Free Telesummit “What The Experts Know on Learning and Education”?  Although originally it was aired in July/August - due to an overwhelming response, Astrid Witt, host of this event, has decided to re-run the entire series!  So much valuable information was shared on what the current generation of children truly need and what conscious parents and teachers/guides can do. 

Covers topics such as:
  • What you need to succeed in life, but schools don't teach
  • How to empower your child (The results will truly surprise you)
  • How innovative schools create happy, self empowered kids 
  • Why traditional labels put on your child can become
    self-fulfilling prophecies 
  • Simple ways to change confrontation into cooperation 
  • Why fear blocks our ability to perform - and what to do about it 
  • How to cope with ADHD without drugs
  • A radical change in perception on autism

Exploring old ideas in BRAVE new ways

I attended this amazing (to say the least) conference this past weekend!

Rethinking Everything

To get a gist on how inspired and passionate these folks are, here's a quote by Barb - the organizer of the conference.

"In my decades of rethinking everything, welcoming change and creating a haven for freedom and self-design for my children, I have come to believe that there is nothing more important or worthwhile than the unconditional nurturing of children.  If we can face our psychological baggage, let go of all we have been conditioned to believe is true about how the world works, and move toward trusting the drive present in each of us, no matter what age, that guides us to a fully alive, fully engaged state of being, then we are powerfully transforming not only ourselves but those we love and, in fact, that great big world out there - which is desperately in need of fresh ideas from those who have grown up under the life-sustaining umbrella of free-to-be, unconditional love and support..."

Time to start rethinking education... and our lives!
