The Unschooled, Stress Free, Peaceful Parented Child
A multi-sensory experience with Homeschooling/Radical Unschooling Expert and best selling author/speaker Dayna Martin and Shamanic Sound Therapist, Grammy nominee and Professor of Yoga, Dalien, aka 13HANDS
Time: 6 pm - 10 pm (Workshop and Concert)
Workshop 6 - 8:30 pm
for children to make THEIR own choices and to define THEIR lives through the supportive, compassionate parenting that cultivates a child's independent voice, inner confidence and intuitive abilities... THAT is the wish for all "unschooled" children and the parents who courageously have chosen this "unparenting" path.
In this very life affirming, powerful and experiential workshop, author, speaker and Radical Unschooling advocate, Dayna Martin will begin with a passionate and educational discussion focusing on various aspects of children's rights as a global movement; along with demonstrating ways to help a parent/s incorporate, implement and utilize the various resources, methods and information available to them to facilitate their children's freedom and learning in a peaceful, compassionate and loving space. At various points, Dalien may support Dayna by providing ambient, meditative music moments... serving as a healing backdrop behind the discussion as to support the mind, body, breath connection for the participants.
The next portion will evolve into a tribal, community Q&A format where Dayna will lead, invite and encourage participants to share personal experiences, ask questions and lend insights. Dalien will also share insights of his years providing yoga, sound, sleep improvement/stress/anxiety reduction with kids in schools, colleges, youth facing stress related traumas, PTSD, in social service protection programs, recovery, adoption and other underserved populations. Dayna and Dalien share the belief that every child is born into this world with the "inner" knowing of who they are, what interests they are drawn to and if the foundation of unconditional love, compassionate listening and support is provided by the parent/guardian/caregiver/s this inner trust can develop and flourish.
At some point during this portion you'll experience a very sacred, sound healing mediation offering with the focused intention toward healing the inner child and bringing peace, happiness, cultivating forgiveness and release to any of our own inner child issues we still face as adults and as parents.
To close Dalien, 13 HANDS will offer an interactive, healing, music/kirtan concert that will integrate all the love, joy, community tribal, good energy we've created to celebrate one another, the collective work and to honor the children.
