Can you count how many ways your life rocks?
I’m sure there’s a lot. It’s a matter of focusing on the positive stuff , the stuff you are grateful for instead of what you don’t like. That’s one of the methods Miro and I use to live a rocking life. And we’ve been invited to talk about our lives at a conference about natural learning, unschooling and conscious parenting called coincidentally “The Life Rocks Conference”!
I believe that everyone has unique (and rocking) aspects of their lives, that should be honored and celebrated. It’s just a matter of of focusing on what you appreciate and honoring the brilliance of what you’ve created.
So, in just about two months, Miro and I will be sharing our rocking life in front of about 500 of our newest friends! And for us, this is the most amazing opportunity for us to sit down and decide which aspects of our lives are most rocking, and how those accomplishments may inspire others.
We can use your help, do you have any suggestions for us??
In addition to this wonderful opportunity of reflection, it gives Miro and I the opportunity to jointly stand in front of a crowd for the first time and present (and affirm) the lifestyle we’ve created with each other.
At this point, we are formulating our thoughts about what we will present, but again, if you have any suggestions for us, please leave them in the comments below. We are thinking we’ll talk about our path, the changes that have taken place in both of our lives, our hearts, our perceptions and our learning approaches. I’d love to share the things we’ve learned to value the most and the gifts of perception gained through our path. Maybe we’ll even focus on all the natural learning we’ve embarked upon together and how our relationship has strengthened as a result of our world schooling. What do you think?
We share the details of our lives here on our blog in the form of written word and even in video and podcasts. But we are so honored to be asked to stand in affirmation in front of 500 people and share our lives and can only hope it serves to inspire and empower others.
Will you join us at The Life Rocks Conference in New Hampsire, April 1st -April 5th?
“The Life Rocks! Conference is a gathering of conscious parents, radical unschoolers, organic, natural learning families and those wishing to explore a partnership parenting paradigm.”

What an awesome opportunity for you guys! I’d suggest making sure you just be yourselves no matter what you decide to share. Allowing some of your humour to come through would be a great idea too. Sometimes I read something Miro has written and it has me on the floor laughing! Would be a shame for your audience not to see that! I know you guys will rock!!
Hi Lainie. I’ve just come across your website, and i feel like the sun has started to rise in a new way for me, as a result. my husband and i are free spirits, love being “in” the world, and are minimalists all the way. we’re thinking of having a child, but the current way of “suburb and school” seems to take all the fun out of life, and the spirit out of people.
i don’t want my child in drone land, and my husband exhausted, trying to pay for that. seeing your way of life, your presence, your beautifully naturally-paced lifestyle, the smile on your child’s face and the wisdom that comes out of his mouth, i am so delighted to find this alternative path, and the great “success” this has brought to you both.
i can’t even tell you how inspiring this is. we would rather not have children, than have them and raise them in a fearful, materialistic, disrespectful environment, which i saw so much of in the states (where I’m from), and still a bit in england (where we live now).
i love love love that you follow that inner guide, your greatest guide, and delight every day in the presence of life, a beautiful teacher herself. i’d take this any day over hours of trigonometry (that i’ll still never use). 😉
thank you for carving a new path and showing this option to the rest of us!!!
love and infinite continued blessings to you both!!!
We can’t wait to meet you Lainie & Miro at the conference! You are such an inspiration – especially for me who is also a single Mum with a son 🙂
