We attended one of the Australian gatherings and can say without doubt that seeing and listening to Sandra in person (instead of on the computer from the other side of the world which can feel quite remote) and meeting other unschooling families and making some friends who we are now in contact with has been absolutely invaluable to getting close to what radical unschooling means, and we are pretty new to this way of life. We drove for two days to get there because we live on the edge of outback queensland which is far from, well, everywhere, and was totally worth the money and time away from work. We can now carry that experience with us now. Its so much better to have had that personal contact. Highly recommend getting along to an ALLive event!
Minnesota, Maine, New Mexico. Those are the only three planned.
I'm getting old. Don't wait too long.
