Education — in family, school, and media systems — is how we learn the stories that shape the way we interpret the world and how we show up in our relationships. If we want to change those stories, education is an essential intervention. We believe education today must critically engage inherited stories of separation and domination, and at the same time responsibly recollect a deeper human inheritance: stories of interrelationship, belonging, dignity and respect.
When we navigate the world with different stories, it fundamentally changes how we show up in our relationships.
This page collects some of the stories of our work.
New Moon Radio is a “moonthly” audio adventure for youth and families that appears every new moon! The series aligns with the goals of all of our in-person programming. It is nature-inspired and attuned to seasonal cycles and rhythms. It is attentive to issues of equity, justice, and social responsibility. And it aims to encourage all of our listeners to deepen their intimacy with the earth, their self-love, and their desire to protect people and the planet.
Full Moon Radio is a "moonthly" audio adventure for youth and families that appears every full moon! This series unfolds within an imaginative world in which a rotating group of travelers gathers every episode to interact, tell stories, and sing songs. Full Moon Radio aims to inspire passion for stories and storytelling in young people and to support our community to connect with and share personal stories, mythical stories, poems, and songs from their lives and lineages.
In this episode, Emily Race and Lauren Hage discuss what Relational Education is, what it means to take prayerful action, how nature-based educational programming can bring us back to ourselves, why the intersection of ecological, social, and personal systems is imperative for global change.
How do we (re)member ourselves back into reciprocal relationship in the Anthropocene? On this episode of the Loam Listen podcast, Sam Edmondson and Lauren Hage of Weaving Earth Center for Relational Education reflect on the ideological migration that this moment we’re living through is asking of us in this conversation for our Weaving New Worlds listening series.
On this episode of the for the wild podcast, brontë velez invites us to think about how supremacy’s submission to Earth is an invitation into a more life-affirming world. What does a future look like in which white, human, and patriarchal supremacy surrender their power in an act of pleasure? How does this release manifest and what spaces must we create in order to allow it?
On this episode of The Future is Beautiful podcast, Amisha sits down with facilitator and educator Will Scott, who was evacuated from his home due to wildfire. He speaks about closely encountering this fierce natural manifestation of climate crisis, and what he notices in his own reactions and responses, as well as those of his community and others around them.
We were honored to contribute an article to the Summer 2020 Weaving New Worlds edition of Loam Magazine. The issue features inspiring words from many brilliant thinkers and doers — we are humbled to be in print alongside them.
