Hema Bharawaj is an unschooling mom with two children and an amazing artist. Hema and I talk about her illustrations for my new book, The Unschooling Journey: A Field Guide. She talks about the inspiration behind the images and shares wonderful stories about her own unschooling journey. Our conversation spanned almost two hours so I decided to break it into two parts to give you more time to savour her stories and insights. And if you’d like to see the illustrations we’re talking about, be sure to check out the episode transcript! I added them alongside our conversation so you can see some of the aspects we reference.
Quote of the Week
“My spirit got unschooling. I got it, I had wanted that all my life but all of the parts of me that had gone through school, that had been raised by parents who were doing their best and saying, “Hey, you know, we need you to learn this and this and this, only if you learn this will you be successful in life.” All of that was getting shaken up.” ~ Hema Bharadwaj
