Hello from the Hansons!
Hello! We're glad you're here. We are a gentle & natural-minded, Charlotte Mason inspired homeschooling family, imperfectly navigating life in Northern Colorado. My hope for this site is that all of my education, many trials, and even more errors, are a way to provide other natural-minded, nature-loving, homeschooling, gentle, "crunchy" or "scrunchy" families some helpful resources through blogs, e-guides, recipes, stories, and natural products. I also look forward to hearing from you! Through community here and on social networks (or in person if you live in Northern Colorado!), I look forward to creating a more peaceful, healthy, loving, and beautiful world with you.
I (Keri) have had my fair share of health challenges. From overcoming disordered eating and poor self-image in my teens and early twenties, along with anxiety on and off that I still am challenged by, I have learned so much. Also, I've taken an academic approach to holistic health and complimentary/ alternative medicine fairly continuously over the last 10 years. I'm a Holistic Health Coach, Yoga teacher, a graduate of Institute for Integrative Nutrition, an Ayurvedic Health Educator (595 hours) , a graduate of the Herbal Medicine Making Program at The Chestnut School of Herbal Medicine, and a student of Herbal Medicine for Women with Herbalist, Midwife and MD Aviva Romm. I’ve also taken Dr. Aviva’s Healthy All Year course–which I highly recommend for a great starting point for a natural approach to children’s health; Herbalist and writer Asia Suler’s Intuitive Plant Medicine course–which was life changing; and I’m always learning through my HerbMentor Membership, as well as classes with local herbalists and healthcare practitioners. Finally, I’m always reading 3 or 4 books about nutrition, herbal medicine, and women + children’s health. And now I want to start sharing what I’ve learned in practical ways with you here. Helping others (and my own family) become their most vibrant, healthy selves, and living fully alive is my passion.
I’ll be working on continually updating my shop for affordable & practical e-guides for natural parenting, mindful eating and self-care, homeschool study bundles, and art the boys make and sell (they get to put half of the money they make in savings and spend half however they choose, and they appreciate your support! )
Also, I am currently still available for limited Ayurvedic health coaching sessions and private yoga classes. Please email me if you are interested. Sessions start at $45 for an hour.
