Christina Taber Wester
Human in Dallas, Texas
Christina is an Unschooling Mama of three aged 15, 8 & 6. Her life purpose is empowering others to hear & follow their "Inner Voice of Wisdom" – which began with learning to hear & follow her own.
She is passionate about trusting children with the freedom to play and learn by following their interests & their own inner wisdom.
In 2009 Christina was presented with her most challenging opportunity yet for learning to trust her children and trust herself. Her middle child was diagnosed with "severe" Autism and so began her process of learning how to support his extra needs, communicate with him and practice radical acceptance. This continues to be the most surreal, powerful and awe inspiring experience of her life. It informs ALL areas of her life and has pushed her onto a "fast track" of shedding limiting beliefs, fears and doubts. As bumpy as this process has been, it has allowed her to enjoy previously unimaginable levels of freedom, connection and creativity both as a parent and as a human.
Christina spends her days ‘learning all the time’ alongside her five soul-mates:
her children, her husband Peter and her ex-husband Dave. (Long story - she'll tell you if you buy her a drink.) ;-)
When she's not supporting her kids in their interests, Christina works on cultivating the Dallas Unschooling community, and helping individuals and groups to change their limiting beliefs and create the lives they desire.
In 2013 she created Radiant Living & Learning which presents workshops on alternatives in education, parenting and physical, mental & spiritual healthcare. Her newest project is a video workshop series called "Level Up" which combines ancient healing modalities with modern brain hemisphere research to facilitate mental and physical healing.
