Christina Wester

  • Unschooling Outside the Bell Curve
  • Roadblocks to Unschooling
  • Desire Map for Conscious Creation

ChristinaWEsterChristina is an Unschooling Mama of three ages 14, 7 and 4.  Empowering children and adults to hear and follow their Inner Voice of Wisdom is her purpose in life – beginning with learning to hear and follow her own!

She learned of Unschooling in 2005 and although she KNEW it was the best path for her 5 year old son, she wasn’t sure how to make it a reality for her family at the time. So her eldest went to kindegarten while she worked as a photographer and Yoga teacher. As always, when we don’t follow the voice of our Inner Wisdom, life presents more and stronger “nudges” and opportunities to heed The Voice.

In 2007 she was forced to consider Unschooling again because school was no longer an option for her son and “school-at-home” seemed like a dreadful alternative (if the nightly homework experience was any indication). Once she settled on Unschooling, an overwhelming sense of Peace overcame her and she felt confident that she had found the right path for her family.

Christina is passionate about allowing children the freedom to play and to follow their own interests and desires.

She spends her days ‘learning all the time’ alongside her five soul-mates:
her 3 kids, her husband Peter and her ex-husband Dave (long story she’ll tell you if you buy her a drink). When she’s not Unschooling her kids and putting together Radiant Living & Learning events, she is learning how to help her child with Autism overcome his extra challenges to express his full potential.

Due to the unpredictable nature of life, the Session Topics, Session Facilitators or other Activities could be cancelled or moved to different times in the schedule.  If this occurs, we will do our best to provide a comparable topic or activity with an alternate facilitator.
