If you seek to:
Develop learning communities that support the growth of all individuals
Help our youth navigate a fast-changing world with wisdom and compassion
Discover root-cause solutions to social and environmental challenges
Creative Lives wants to work with you. For the past eight years, the team at Creative Lives has implemented a new, holistic approach to teaching, learning, and human fulfillment—with powerful results. Now, we are building a network of holistic educators and problem solvers committed to the wellbeing of our children, youth, and their environment.
In this free workshop, we’ll explore our approach, Ellen Tadd’s Framework for Wise Education, as a means to develop our own strengths, empower the youth we serve, and galvanize our efforts on behalf of learning communities and the natural world. This is a hands-on event. You’ll learn some of the basic, Framework strategies that activate our individual and collective “wise view” — and discover new opportunities to get involved in our movement for holistic education and restorative living.
Led by Creative LIves Director Maureen Burford, with Chris Wood, Director of BALE (building local economy)
"In 25 years of continuing education, I have never been so moved. Great things will happen with this model of education!" — Pieter Bohen, CEO Emeritus, Farm and Wilderness Camps
