    Episode 21: The Many Gifts of Aware Parenting & Natural Learning

    We are so happy to be back with a new episode of the Aware Parenting and Natural Learning podcast for the end of the year. We talk about the many gifts for our children and ourselves of choosing these ways of raising them, as we are both now at the end of the "schooling" process. The gifts include our children's self-connection, their freedom from the painful and enduring beliefs about ourselves that are set up in school through cultural conditioning, their freedom from coercion and control and the deep, mutual, unconditional love that is the defining feature of our relationships, throughout childhood and beyond. We share some recent examples of joyful experiences we have had with our children and share some of why we have both loved this journey so much.

    Episode 20: Meeting needs

    Episode 20: Meeting needs

    In this episode, we talk about meeting needs of both parents and children when practicing Aware Parenting and Natural Learning.
    We share about the effects of the culture on needs, and the creative ways we might need to utilise to support everyone in the family getting their needs met.
    We discuss the needs inventory from Nonviolent Communication (which you can find at www.cnvc.org) and how helpful it is in identifying needs, valuing needs and being willing for our needs to be met.
    We include the process that we can go through from not knowing that we have needs to reclaiming the beauty of our needs and having willingness for our needs to be met.
    We talk about specific ways that we found helpful for getting our needs met as mothers whilst also supporting our children to have their needs met too.

    Episode 19: The Effect of School Trauma on our Callings

    Episode 19: The Effect of School Trauma on our Callings

    In this episode, we talk about how school trauma can affect our callings in the world, our work life and our ability to be who we were always meant to be and to contribute to the world. We discuss the amazing opportunity for healing old hurts and themes that we receive, when we become entrepreneurs and start sharing our voice, as younger parts of us come up repeatedly to be heard and healed. Marion shares her Marion Method processes for exploring and healing the themes from school, including powerlessness, coercion, self-doubt, harsh self-criticism, feeling unsafe or afraid, not being heard and experiencing shame. We describe examples of our on-going journey of healing our school trauma so we then feel liberated to share our work in the world.

    Episode 17: School Trauma Part 2

    Episode 17: School Trauma Part 2

    Welcome back to another episode of the Aware Parenting and Natural Learning podcast. In this episode we discuss school trauma again. We talk about some of the visible and some of the invisible traumas that children experience at school, as well as the impact of the accumulated mini and major traumas that are part of each school day. We discuss how children often need to go into a dissociation nervous system response at school and how this then makes it difficult for many of us to remember and really understand just how traumatic school was or to see the conditioning, denial or social acceptance that school is fine. We talk about the long-term impact on us as adults of these traumas and the effect on our psychological and physical health of being in a chronic stressed state. We share about the adultism that is such a strong part of our culture, where adults get to decide and power-over children and where children’s voice, opinions, needs and desires are overlooked and not honoured.

    Episode 16: School trauma

    Episode 16: School trauma

    In this episode, we talk about school trauma - what it is, how it happens, and how institutionalised it is. We share about the fight/flight/freeze response and how Aware Parenting understands that we also have an innate healing response to move out of those states, which are often not supported in schools. We include the third principle of Aware Parenting - both the prevention of stress and trauma as well as the healing from it. We discuss the bigger cultural shift we are inviting, rather than simply inviting everyone to homeschool. Joss shares her experience of being in boarding school from the age of 8, and the four main areas of trauma that happen in many schools. We talk about how vial it is for us as adults to become more comfortable with feeling and expressing our feelings again.
