We recognize the body’s natural ability to maintain health and that illness is an imbalance of the body’s energies such that the physical workings are interrupted. Chris and I utilize healthy lifestyle choices, Reiki, chiropractic, and acupuncture in order to maintain the healthy balance of our bodies. The kids have decided that they would also like to take part in the two latter pieces of this (they already do the former by default because we are an active family that surrounds ourselves with healthy food options and they have been raised with Reiki and request it frequently).
Whole-life unschooling deals with the all-important emotional piece of the health equation. Through our commitment to respectful parenting, Chris and I are continually discovering and addressing our own emotional blocks so that we don’t pass them on to our children. Our goal is to raise them in freedom (aka- without judgment or guilt) such that they can live in authenticity. We do this through open, respectful, and gentle communication.
