Living Education Collective is so excited to announce our 2nd annual Summer Gathering! This year we will be in the beautiful Ojai Valley for a full day Charlotte Mason retreat on Sat., July 22 from 9am-5pm. Join us for a day of inspiration, community, philosophy and practicum.
This is a Charlotte Mason mother culture event. We believe education is an atmosphere, a discipline and a life. Come join us as we live it! In addition to all things Charlotte Mason, this gathering will feature delicious food, rest, inspiration, relationship and growth.
Let the mother's go out and play!
Connect with likeminded mom's as we discuss the book, In Vital Harmony by Karen Glass. We will meet Tuesday, May 23rd & June 6th at 6:30 p.m. in Weaverville, N.C. The goal of the discussion will be to gain a deeper understanding of the philosophy of a Charlotte Mason education for our children and ourselves. She described her approach to education as, “Education is an atmosphere, a discipline, a life.” Members will purchase the book to read and are encouraged to take notes or jot down questions to bring to the discussion. During the meeting, we will take turns sharing our thoughts about the book, what we learned, and how we related to the material.
“It is no arbitrary reward which is attached to the assembling of two or three together; we warm ourselves at each others’ fires, and glow with the heat we get. Let but the heads of two or three families meet together to talk over the bringing up of their children, and the best and wisest parents will go home with new insight, renewed purpose, and warmer zeal. ‘We shall learn by degrees that education is, like religion, a social principle as well as an individual duty; and, meeting on this higher ground, we shall find out the best of one another as we never should in the common intercourse of business or society.'”
Charlotte Mason, editorial note, Parents’ Review, March 1890

“The people themselves begin to clamour for an education which shall qualify their children for life rather than for earning a living. As a matter of fact, it is the man who has read and thought on many subjects who is, with the necessary training, the most capable whether in handling tools, drawing plans, or keeping books.”
-- Charlotte Mason

Unlike many homeschool education days, CM PEN Learning Days are not drop-off programs. One of the main goals of CM PEN is to be accessible for families of all sizes. We believe that this encourages community, and allows families to be fully integrated in the education process. During our Learning Days we explore a variety of subjects and short lessons, using Charlotte Mason philosophies. Students will be encouraged to share their thoughts and ideas while they are learning with others in their form. This day will be focused on allowing students to form connections with their readings and fellow students. We are a 501c3 organization with a mission to support homeschool families. We also have an online presence and encourage any homeschooling family interested in learning through Charlotte Mason's philosophy to join us. We operate locally in the Low Country of South Carolina.
