Unschooling as Daily Practice

I’ve heard it’s good to have a daily practice.  Something earthy and grounding and inspirational or aspirational, something that helps us cultivate mindfulness and be at one with the universe and at home in our skin.

Meditation.  Yoga.  Running.  Chanting.  Journaling.  Gardening.


Just like all that stuff more commonly associated with the idea of daily practice, unschooling works best when it’s approached with respect and informed by mindful presence.Like those other practices, it rewards us with a richer experience the longer we do it and the deeper we delve.

And like those other practices, the more attentive we are to its nuances, the more we feel its resonance throughout our families, and throughout our lives.
