2007 TUC – Amy Carpenter Leug’s Awareness
Amy Carpenter Leug’s Awareness: A Soulgazer’s View of Unschooling – As unschooling parents, we have the tremendous honor to witness our children’s learning as it grows into true awareness. Awareness of self, society, the world and their link to it — all of these and more pour forth as our children make connections and build their unique vision of reality. In traditionally schooled society, the word “learning” often carries the connotation of an intellectual process, separate from body and spirit. But the word “awareness” describes how much more substantial and soulful the unschooling life can be. How can unschooling parents tap into the rich and flowing meanings of “awareness”? It begins with an abiding respect for the child’s soul, that mystery that lies deep within them and makes them who they are. The soul of a free child is a wondrous thing — a complex river that rushes, swirls, cascades, twists and bends around back on itself. Are we up to appreciating this gift?
