Online Course: Raising Free Children
In this online course we will look at a topic which lies at the heart of every human life: childhood development and how it determines the future. We invite parents, caretakers, educators and whoever is interested in creating consciousness around the issue of raising children to participate.
Working with the decades of research and experience that have been gathered in our community, we are excited to share our lived examples and our open questions. We hope to come together in a supportive and inspiring way.

We offer 4 units of study:
- Unit 1: Diving into the cosmic and political dimension of raising children – natural birth, preparation for parenthood and the conditions that allow trust to unfold.
- Unit 2: Exploring the tension between freedom and giving orientation – how to support creative potential with natural ways of learning for child development.
- Unit 3: Looking into adolescence – how to protect the open heart during this tender time and tools for engaging with conflict.
- Unit 4: Discovering the landscape beyond the nuclear family – why does it need a village to raise a child, and what can we learn from children about love free from fear?
The course will include texts, images and short videos of more than 25 speakers from the Tamera community and elsewhere. It also includes 4 recorded webinars of Q&A with Tamera’s experts. There will not be live video calls.
The Flipbook “Tamera: A Model for the Future” of Christa Leila Dregger is included in the course fee and will be available as soon as you register.
For each of the 4 units, we recommend you invest between 3-6 hours. This will allow you to go through all the content, write your contributions, interact with other participants and watch the video calls. However, you will be able to decide on the pace of your studying as well as the depth of your participation.
