Hello, welcome to my blog for Sacred Schooling. There are many of us today who realize the unique differences our children have and hope to allow them to become messengers or follow their karmic path for the benefit of our world. Sacred Schooling: A Curriculum to Guide Our New Humanity is one way that we can encourage our children to do just that. I was inspired to write Sacred Schooling by my 5 homeschooled children. They were discovering things about themselves and had questions that couldn't be answered with other homeschooling resources that are currently available. Their thirst remains unsatisfied as I still have some miles to go to publish this much needed guide.

We all can use this guide, whether homeschooled or not and can even benefit as adults as we learn along with our children. Please spread the word to all those who can benefit from this guide and invite friends to join the Sacred Schooling ning at
http://sacredschooling.ning.com/ or to become a follower for this blog http://sacredschooling.blogspot.com/

Our new humanity needs this book to help enlighten our world. I am full of gratitude for all the world wide support I already have for this guide.

Note: I do not necessarily support the ads listed on this blog or the ning.

Quoting Gary Holthaus

I am still busy working on the curriculum guide- the sample lesson will be ready for me to email out soon (waiting on some illustrations).

I am intrigued by Gary Holthaus's book, Learning Native Wisdom: What Traditional Cultures Teach Us about Subsistence, Sustainability, and Spirituality. It is delightful. One of my favorite quotes so far shows our so-called modern schooling methods in comparison to those education methods used successfully for 15,000 years...

"Their [American Indian Peoples] methods [of education] apparently leaned toward observation of elders, cooperation, mentoring and coaching, letting a child try something, more or less privately, until he was ready to reveal his skill. Beyond those essentials there was the use of stories, songs, and dances. In nonnative American culture, especially since the movement toward consolidation, which took away older students' opportunity to mentor younger ones, methods have leaned toward individual effort, rote, competition , frequent testing, and display of knowledge, all in a system where songs, dances, and stories are often viewed as add-ons or frills."

I am feeling the love!

I was feeling a bit low and "down and out". But recently my vibration is much higher! I am full of gratitude for all the kind words I see daily in emails and for the support of those around me. Thanks so much! I am happy to say that my 14 year old Daughter is my biggest fan. She is an amazing child! I couldn't do this without her encouragement. It fills me with motivation that this guide is so necessary and wanted. Love and hugs to all!
