School doesn't work for everyone.
Learning works for everyone, but traditional school does not.
We started the Life Lived Freely Spirit Center to offer an alternative to students, young and old, who want a place to learn and grow freely. A place where each individual path is honored and respected.
Many of us have lost our Inner Wisdom because we have been taught since infancy that our natural rhythms and natural curiosities were wrong. We have forgotten about the ability to trust our instincts; to tap into the infinite wisdom within each and every one of us.
We didn't know we were hurting our children any more than we knew we were hurting ourselves. But as Maya Angelou wisely said, "Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better."
The current model is clearly not working. Let's take a leap of faith and try something different, even if (especially if) we have to make it up as we go along.
Because there's a big difference between living and Being Alive.
