Law of Attraction Schools

Hi Annie,


I'm a Kindergarten teacher who is forming a school that draws very much from the Law of Attraction. Do you know of any schools at all that are based on the law of attraction?

Thanks,

Schools using Law of Attraction ideals
by: Annie Desantis

Hi,

What a wonderful project to undertake, I would be most interested to hear how it develops! I am not sure if you were wanting to set up a pre-school(as a Kindergarten teacher) or intend developing a school for school age children, but here are a few resources I know of. I am sure there are lots more out there, and hopefully some of our readers will comment and pass on more resources.

One best schools I know of is the Sudbury Valley School in Massachusetts

http://www.sudburyvalley.org/

And there have been a number of other schools based on this model around the world, their site has a link page to other schools:

http://www.sudval.org/07_othe_01.html

In the UK there is the Summerhill School, based on a free play/democratic model, founded in 1921 and still controversal today!

http://www.summerhillschool.co.uk/

The other model you may be interested in is the Waldorf Schools based on Rudolf Steiner's teachings, who used more of a spiritual (not religious), creative, artistic approach to education.

http://www.whywaldorfworks.org/

The unschooling model is also very much in keeping with Law of Attraction, based on the idea of no set curriculum, but following the energy and interest of the children. More often used in the home as homeschooling, but I can't see any reason why a school could not adopt a lot of the ideas if there were enough adults to children (1 adult to 5 children would be ideal!)

There is a page on our site with an over-view of Unschooling:

Books I would recommend of the top of my head, I am sure there are many more!

Anything by John Holt - the "father of Unschooling"

Radical Unschooling - A Revolution Has Begun by Dayna Martin

The Unschooling Unmanual by Nanda Van Gestel, Jan Hunt, Daniel Quinn, and Rue Kream

Best of luck,

montessori
by: Kirsten

This is such an interesting topic to me because we just choose my daughters elementary school this week. I personally found that Montessori was a really good fit for us for preschool. Which is interesting in itself because I originally thought Montessori was really strange. But after setting some strong intentions about schools, and then visiting several it was really a clear choice for preschool and elementary. I love how they trust kids to find their own way. I like the idea of a Sudbury school and there is one in our state, but the montessori is a better option for us. I was really excited to see some LOA influences at the elementary school we choose (and it is a public school!)

My two cents about starting a school would be set a powerful intention, get excited, and let your intuition be your guide!! happy creating!

Best, kirsten

Parents Setting Intention
by: Annie Desantis

Thanks for your comment Kirsten.

You are spot on about setting your intentions. Often as parents we focus on our concerns and forget to put out for what we do want. Well done for following your intuition and being open to possibilities.

I too looked at Montessori as a pre-school option, and really liked a lot of their ideas. But I was very fortunate in New Zealand in having the Playcentre Association - which is parent run, birth to school age pre-school education. The emphasis was on training parents in the principals of free play and child development.

Free Play fits perfectly with the Law of Attraction! All areas of play and activities are available to children all the time, and a high ratio of adults to children, meant lots of opportunities for kids to follow their energy.

However, I think if that had not been available to me, Montessori (for pre-school) would have been my next choice. I'm sure your little ones will have a ball. They have a head start on lots of children, in that their Mom is well aware of consciously creating a wonderful environment for them to grow, learn and play in. Good on you!

Wishing you JOY,

Annie Desantis

Teaching LOA in Schools
by: Ronald Patrick Marriott

Hello Annie,
Ever since I was in second grade I've been looking for Law of Attraction to be taught in schools. Right until now while my step grand-kids are entering school have I wanted this training to take place.

I came home from school in second grade crying pretty hard because they were not teaching me how to use my mind to run my world. My mom could only say that they don't teach those things there and ask your Dad.

Now I'm 57 yrs old and have children in my life that I want educated in these very necessary universal laws. It would change the world, put crime out of business and provide a loving and happy world.

I found a new energy supply for the population to use instead of all the pollution we have now. It's made from lightning and can change our world with inventions and products for the next 500 years.

I will use the profits from this to provide the necessary events to bring this forward. I'm working on getting the Press releases ready now.

The world will be in for a great surprise really soon. But now the other half of the world needs education in these laws. Do you have any further info on a structured program for this?

Teaching Law of Attraction in Schools
by: Annie Desantis

Hi Ronald,
Your invention sounds very interesting!

I agree, teaching kids the power of their minds would be wonderful taught in schools. But we as parents and grand-parents have the most influence on our children, and they will absorb so much from what you model to them.

There will always be challenges for kids - and adults, and learning better ways to be in the world is part of why we are here. Maybe without the struggles you had as a child you would not have got so clear about what is important.

People experience the world in a multitude of different ways, and will be drawn to learning or remembering more of these universal laws in their own way. You have a grand vision of how you want to see the world, and putting your energy behind creating that is so wonderful.

Wishing you JOY,
Annie D:)

Click N Kids would have to be one of my subscribers most popular programs, and from what they say, it is mostly because the kids have fun while they are learning. In fact they don't even realize they are learning! Click N kids are using the Looney Tune Characters now in their phonics program, which of course kids just love.
