Life School House - the gifts of a gift economy!
Jennifer started an organization called Life School House. She wanted to make use of the space in her home to give back to her community in alignment with the truth and reconciliation work that is happening in Canada.
Life School House is a network of spaces and communities that work on a barter system to open their doors and create classes based on the skills that people have to share. It is a gift society that will help each other where no money is exchanged. The teacher offers their skills based on barter, and the students come with barter items.
It is not about the education it is about people trying to find time to connect with other humans.
It was clear quickly that Jennifer's family home was too small for all of the classes and groups that wanted to get together and there birthed the network.
You can find more about the Life School House on their website, and an expression of interest and Jennifer and her team will reach out to help support you in the resources and materials to get started.
The art of hosting is the most important component to ensure that the connections are made, everyone is welcomed, and the community grows in resources and connections!
Life School House began with very limited funding. They have been invited to attend a gathering in Copenhagen, to help build on the learning of the folk school models that have been in place for over 150 years. The focus is go - learn how to human differently - then come back and support your own community.
Jennifer is looking forward to building the network, please reach out to her on her Facebook page or Website for more information. https://www.lifeschoolhouse.com/
