    Aack! I love Katy Bowman! I have been doing a “Bowman Deep Dive” these last few months and reading all her work. I never thought natural homeschooling would lead me to reconsider exercise, footwear, and being outside, but in Katy’s work it all comes together! Can’t wait to listen.

I work from an island in the Pacific Northwest, where I live wild and free in connection with my hilarious husband and three growing sailors in our fixer upper on the beach. I authentically live this healing work out loud raising my own neurodivergent family (inner child included) and draw on my decades of education and experience (I've done all the nerdy work so you don't have to) to guide a revolution of overwhelmed parents just like you to feeling at peace within yourself, consciously connected with your children, embraced by a supportive community, and enjoying a values-aligned life you love.
