Charlotte Amid Cedars is a reading and discussion group for mothers that wish to delve deeper into the CM Method. We will read Miss Mason's volumes for ourselves, and meet one evening a month for engaging discussion. For the '21-'22 school year we'll read Volume 3: School Education. Charlotte Amid Cedars also offers a Mother's Education Course booklist, immersion lessons, workshops, and Mother Culture outings. This is a brand-new group that I hope will expand to include children in Natural History Club, Literature Club, and Shakespeare Club.
We are located in the Staunton area of the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. We meet once a month to discuss the current Volume in which we are reading. We have a list of about 15 ladies, and on any regular basis there are eight of us there. It is a wonderful group for fellowship, deepening our understanding of God and how He uses the CM method in our homes, and a place to build community. We have been the springboard for a group in North Harrisonburg area as well.
We are a group helping each other teach enrichment subjects to help us be accountable for them in our homeschool. We gather bi-weekly for 6 meetings for a fall and winter term. Participation in the Charlotte Mason Evening of Encouragement book discussion is required as well as parent participation.

An extension of our CM Co-op (The Arbor Guild), our Natural History Club gathers each month at a local 35-acre prairie reserve for an extended nature hike. Mothers from our co-op also lead the group in outdoor geography and object lessons. We end our time together by sharing from our natural journals (moms too!).
The Arbor Guild has been meeting since the Spring of 2013 as a multi-age (grades 1-12) living education community. We gather bi-monthly at a local community center, directly adjacent to a 35-acre prairie reserve (where we meet on alternating weeks for our Natural History Club). Parents share teaching responsibilities in a variety of subject areas, including Shakespeare, composer, picture study, poetry, literature, folksong, hymn, and handwork. We divide our meeting days into upper and lower forms for many of our subjects to allow for increased student sharing and also more challenging material as the students get older.
This monthly book discussion group is for anyone interested in learning more about Charlotte Mason. We meet from 7-9 p.m. on the third Tuesday night of each month, September through May. Since 2012, we have been reading slowly and carefully through Mason’s six volumes and continue to combine thoughtful discussion of the text with living book recommendations, CM article discussions, and a general sharing of ideas and support. All are welcome.

Women's group that meets on a monthly basis to study and share ideas for practical application of Charlotte Mason's philosophy of education within a home environment. We also gather together occasionally for nature study, hikes and other inspirational activities with our children.
Mount Stewart, PE
We are a group of homeschooling moms who meet the first Monday of each month near Mount Stewart to discuss Charlotte Mason’s philosophy and methods.
We always start our meetings with a social time and a “show and tell” where we can share our favourite resources or ideas around a specific topic. Then we have a study time, discussing a book or a practical video.
We also have a small Charlotte Mason reference library available at our meetings.
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 ♥

My children and I would like to gather with a local community of Christian Charlotte Mason-style parents and students in NE Ohio to do nature walks, discuss books and eventually participate in folk dancing and other creative and pleasant activities, as we explore Truth, Beauty, and Goodness together.

Event for parents

Fort Smith, AR
I will be moving to the Fort Smith Arkansas area and I am considering starting an in-person book discussion group for Charlotte Mason moms. I would like to read and discuss CM's volumes along with other Charlotte Mason focused books and ideas. Anyone looking for community but not a co-op, moms who are new to CM methods, or moms just wanting to dive deeper into a Charlotte Mason education not only for their kids but for themselves. Maybe we could meet every 4-6 weeks. Meeting places may vary from coffee shops, libraries, parks, etc.
Welcome to our NoVA group! We are meeting 2-4x per month on weekdays at Ellanor C. Lawrence Park and Hidden Oaks Park and are excited about sharing the riches together as well. We also have a reading group once a month at Van Dyck Park on Saturday mornings, please see that listing for the contact info.
Event for parents and students
Are you looking for some targeted encouragement and guidance in implementing the methods of Charlotte Mason in your school – something a bit more in-depth and private than a forum question or an email inquiry For 25 years I have enjoyed walking alongside others and helping them bind together the practice with the principles of a living education based on Mason’s philosophy of education. If only time and space would allow us to chat in my home with a warm cup of something you love to drink, amidst the books and things around which I am most comfortable! Perhaps we may still be able to arrange something special.
Please see my webpage for more information on how to go about setting up a private meeting with me either online or in-person!
