About me

Gender FEMALE
Location Mornington Peninsula, VIC, Australia
Introduction Welcome to this on line journal of my family's evolving journey. I strive to be a nurturing, peaceful, loving, warm and 'home made' Mama. We do our best to live a simple, natural and self sufficient (where we can) life. Being deeply inspired by Rudolph Steiner's philosophies and the unschooling approach to childhood learning, Michael and I feel grateful to be leading Aria through her first magical moments in this fascinating world with this perspective. Thankyou for sharing in our joy, xx
