Unschooling Liberation Space

Deep-dive Resources for Exploring & Expanding Your Unschooling Practice

Join Community

This exploration space is not an online course.

Instead, it's a growing community of revolutionary adults developing the language and practice of raising free people.

This community official opened on Wednesday, August 30, 2017. As it grows, you'll gain access to the myriad of resources I'm compiling and creating for you to feel through:

  • Deep-dive details about this daily practice
  • Links to research about the benefits and challenges
  • Real examples from real unschoolers
  • Unfiltered talks about obstacles to unschooling
  • Encouragement to keep going, and how to pivot
  • Suggestions for dealing with naysayers
  • Alternatives to punishment-based parenting
  • Help with transitioning from homeschooling
  • Help with transitioning from public/private schooling
  • Video footage from my live presentations
  • Audio footage from my live presentations
  • Links to research about Self-Directed Education
  • Interviews with other unschoolers (exclusively for us)
  • Monthly live group video chats/Q&A

You get videos, audios, images, suggested readings, and group (video) meetups.

Right now, you have full access to Unschooling Explained, a webinar I hosted on July 12. More than 300 people participated! We'll expound on the topics from the webinar, and include often-asked questions about related topics such as navigating our own baggage, the high relevance of self-care in unschooling, ways to create in-person community, dealing with our own parents’ issues with our choices, changing our minds, authentic self-expression, and of course, the daily practice of raising free people.

Unschooling Liberation Space is like our app for raising free people. It’s our nation, our safe space, and it will grow as we grow.


"I love the connections you've made and spelled out here. I'm joining because I want to further explore these concepts and how to apply them and bring them into action in my own life. I can't wait to keep learning!" - Katy Barrett
