Nonviolent Communication: Asking for What We Want
Wednesday, August 29th, 6:30PM-8:30PM
Many people are uncomfortable asking for what they want and may feel frustrated when their needs don’t get met. In this 2-hour interactive workshop we’ll take a look at what keeps us from requesting what we want and how to create a request that is more likely to end in success. We’ll also practice asking for what we want. Plan to be surprised!
 
Unschooling: What's The Big Idea?
Wednesday, August 29th, 7PM-9PM
Unschooling is an educational method and philosophy that advocates learner-chosen activities as a primary means for learning. Have you been considering unschooling for your children but still have questions? Come join our conversation to discuss the possible pros and cons. Moira was unschooled in rural Alaska and has now been in business for herself since she was 19.
