At this school, revealed in Book 3 of the Ringing Cedars Series, the children have designed, built, and decorated their own campus. They cover the entire high-school curriculum in one year and get official Master's degrees by the time they are seventeen. They cook their meals, do administrative work, and write their own textbooks. They contemplate the meaning of the Universe and swim in mountain streams. They dance, draw, sing, and pick strawberries in the surrounding fields. They have no interest in the TV or video games. They do not prepare themselves for ‘life' — they live every moment they breathe.
In this inspiring video these children will move you to tears and their words will touch the very core of your being.

Ah yes you have a daughter Johnny. Does her mother share the vision with you? This can be the biggest challenge of all.

Hi Johnny I agree. That is the old way of thinking but there are many people who do not think that way any more. Have you checked out
She is a parenting teacher. She teaches to always side with your child. Teach by asking questions and of course unschooling is the way to honor your child. Do you have children Johnny? I have two daughters Avalon7 and Nature 4. They were both homebirthed into water and we are creating a Kin Domain settlement here in Maine. I have found others here who share the dream.

I've taken Anastasia's advice to ask questions to my son. We talk to him often about our Spirits and God and Who We Really Are. About a month ago when we were talking about such things I asked him, "Can you see your Spirit?" He looked at himself with his eyes closed and answered, "Yes." "What does it look like?" "Oval Star," he answered. That is a perfect explanation of the shape and appearance of the Aura. "Can you see mine?" I asked. He looked at me really close with his eyes closed again. "Yes." "What does it look like?" "Star Oval Star."
He's also told me strange visions out of the blue--what he "sees in my Spirit." Some of these, I'm not sure what do with or even think of. For example, he told me one morning that in my Spirit, he saw a man walk into a place and cut a lot of people. With scissors. And when I asked he said it "matched" the recycling place but it wasn't that. I'm just going to pay attention a little more to my surroundings when I'm at, lets say, the thrift store donation bin or something!
The point is, THEY ARE OPEN! They might share something magical if you know how to ask. If you see auras like you see noses, why would you ever have a reason to mention it unless someone asked? They ARE little Deities. They ARE Gods!! Unspoiled and unconditioned!!

Donanne! Sister! Your Life is my Dream! Once my Kin's Domain in the forest manifests (and its about to, truly) we'll be living a shared Dream! My son Judah who is 3 loves being naked (as does his mommy) but at the moment he can't venture outside naked from our trailer. The neighbors have complained! Just today I had to try and explain why its not ok to expose himself to the little neighbor girls! Which is a little difficult when you believe in nakedness! We are happily unschooling him and trying to keep him as connected to Nature as possible. The material temptations from children around him are a challenge. I just try to relax.
Our vision is a yurt in the woods among friends with families. We have about 5 families that want community. I'm going to pass the Anastasia books through out them, so our Dreams may grow together!!

We live in Mt Vernon, ME. We are creating Living Earth Eco village a kin Domain settlement in Maine and I am a member of the North American kin Counsel. There are many groups forming and creating kin Domain Settlements around the world and all over the US. We are doing this for the purpose of empowering all of us to recreate a world of paradise together. We know how to create this and we do it! There is no money in paradise. All needs are provided for. God created the Earth for us to enjoy as we wish. We are Creators capable of creating whatever we choose. It is a joy!

Joyce Morris has created this website. She is a leader in this movement and one of my teachers. I have deep gratitude to her for reflecting to me who I AM.
