Look Out London!


Over the last few days I have been corresponding with a conference coordinator who contacted me to see if I could be the Headlining Speaker at the first ever Unschooling Conference in Europe!

I am so honored and excited on so many levels about this. I can't believe that I will be travelling over there with my family to spread the word about Radical Unschooling. This is a dream come true for us.

Also, my Mom lives over there and my children have never been over to see her home to visit her, so our whole family is beside themselves with gratitude for all we are manifesting in our lives right now. To be able to spend time with my Mom will be incredible. I have never seen her house. I could cry thinking about all of this.

The conference is called, The London Unschooling Conference and will be held smack in the middle of the city of London, England this July. I hope to meet some of my online friends while I am there!
Devin is so excited to go to the Tower of London to see all of the medieval armor and to tour castles. Dakota can't wait to see my Mom's home and her kitties. The kids love and miss their grandmother so much.

Thank you for everyone for believing in me, in this Radical Unschooling movement and living this amazing life with our families and as a community. The shift is picking up momentum and great things are happening... for all of us.
Update 2/16 - The London Unschooling Conference website is up! Visit the site and register here!

Dayna, this is awesome! You are such an inspiration. Thank you for sharing the power of the Law of Attraction.

This sounds brilliant! I want to spread the word about the conference, and Google is failing me; can you provide more info about it? Specific dates, location, and someone to contact for more info would be ideal, if nothing else.

Hi Michael, the website isn't up yet and the dates are being finalized. I do know that it is going to be a one day conference so no one has to find lodging etc.

I will post the details here as soon as it is up. I know it is going to be widly popular.

Hope to meet you there!

Rock on Dayna, as only you can...

London is the BEST - and to see your Mom's house, that's awesome!

Hello from England!

Speaking of finalising dates - We were just talking on the AEUK list about the early news of this conference, and hoping it wouldn't clash with HESFES, which is a week-long camp in July and a big event in the UK home ed calendar. http://www.hesfes.co.uk/gpage6.html

I expect if the organisers are UK-based, they're aware of HESFES anyway, but just in case, perhaps you could pass on that thought to them? Thanks!

Also if you're coming over anyway in July you might want to visit HESFES yourselves :-)

Thank you Jennifer,
The organizer is aware of HESFES and may even go to promote the Unschooling Conference.
She lives in the UK, yes.
The website for the conference is
www.LondonUnschoolingConference.co.uk (it will be up soon).
I look forward to maybe meeting you there! Thanks again.

Sounds awesome! Congratulations. :-)

I found your blog through a Google search, and it seems lovely! As an unschooling teen, and a strong supporter of unschooling, I always love to see others on their own unschooling adventures...

Wow,, cant even believe how lucky we are to have you sharing your insight into this great alternative to state school with us.. I really enjoyed hearing your UTube videos.
Being at home with my children and being a daily part of their lives has been such a blessing.
Every year I have moved more and more from homeschooling to unschooling and I am comforted by your encouraging words.
