Your invited to join our Charlotte Mason book study, meeting monthly in my home in Southeast Calgary (Midnapore). We've been working through a volume of Mason's each year. In fall of 2021 we will read and discuss Volume 5, Formation of Character.
In pre-covid years we've hosted annual Prov.en.der weekends with Laurie Bestvater and Melanie Walker-Malone and we hope to do so again in the future. For more details visit https://www.prov-en-der.com/weekends.html
We are a Charlotte Mason Book Study Group. We meet regularly to discuss Charlotte Mason's work and writing. We are reading through her 6 Volumes on Education at this time. We are looking for other Charlotte Mason Homeschoolers to join us!
Here is a look at our upcoming meetings...
Thursday, August 5th: Chapters 19-21, Parents and Children (Volume 2)
Thursday, August 26: Chapters 22-24, Parents and Children (Volume 2)
Thursday, September 16th: Chapters 25-26, Parents and Children (Volume 2)
Thursday, October 7th: Begin Home Education (Volume 3)
We would love for you to join us!
Welcome, Mamas! We invite you to come and chat about all things Charlotte, ask questions, share resources, and discuss her volumes.
We meet every second Friday from 7:30-9:30 PM. Moms only, nursing babes welcome.
We read Mason's work with intention every month and gather to listen to how each is grappling with Mason's ideas. Taking turns hosting allows us to connect in comfort and confidentiality.
A greatness of thinking - or magnanimity, according to Mason - seasons our conversation. Essentially, when at odds, we "agree to disagree agreeably." We all homeschool differently and have different backgrounds, but we're committed to coming together to create meaningful, encouraging dialogue that seeks to understand Mason's ideas and one another.
As Mason wrote, education is truly an atmosphere, a discipline and a life. That children are whole persons. That the Holy Spirit is the Divine Teacher & we parents are co-collaborators in their education. That we mothers are being taught by the same means. As we seek to authentically interpret her work, we read with this lens in mind.
Welcome! We can't wait to learn alongside you ♥
This book club will work on a rotation through books on the Charlotte Mason method, some published and sold by Simply Charlotte Mason, and others published by other sources. We will focus on one book at a time to help us learn deeply from the wisdom of the author and each other. Our current book study is:
Parents and Children by Charlotte Mason (Volume 2 of the Original Home Schooling Series)

(tentative) Consider This by Karen Glass
