Hello and Welcome!
My vision is to connect and inspire mothers, carers and communities with each other so that they feel empowered to raise children who are wholly connected with themselves (head, heart and hands) and to the planet. I believe from the bottom of my heart that peace begins in the home.
I am Meagan, Mama to 4 beautiful souls: North, Indigo, Juniper and Sage and loving wife to Brad. After living ten years in Sydney, Australia we just recently took flight and put down new roots in the Canadian countryside just outside of Toronto.
I began researching play-based learning, natural parenting and early childhood education in 2008 after the birth of my first child and on that journey I stumbled across some Waldorf inspired blogs that resonated with me deeply. From that moment on I spent countless hours reading about the importance of rhythm and developing, planning and animating our own daily rhythm. With each new year, new child and new stage & age our daily rhythms change and adapt to our needs, but the steady beat always supports us.
After I received a Bachelor of Arts from McGill University I travelled and taught TESOL to young children in South Korea and then Australia for 5 years. In 2012, I completed my Foundations in Steiner Education and Anthroposophy at the Sydney Steiner College. In 2017, under the training of Kim John Payne, I received my certification as a Simplicity Parenting Family Life Coach. I continually study via online courses, retreats, conferences and one-on-one sessions under many of my mentors including Dr. Shefali Tsabury, Dr. Gordon Neufeld, Dr. Gabor Mate and Janet Lansbury.
I began to document my own journey as a Mama to young children on my blog six years ago, and as its readership grew, the same burning question arose time and again from like-minded Mamas around the world:
