Shifting the way we think about
learning, parenting & community!

 We are Sari González and Becka Koritz – unschooling mamas, parent coaches and leaders in the self-directed education movement. Together we have 30+ years of experience working with kids, coaching parents and training adults supporting youth. 
We provide support at the intersection of unschooling, parenting, relationship & community building through various kinds of unschooling tools and resources for self-directed learning families and communities. 
We host a bi-weekly unschooling podcast called Radical Learning Talks where we explore different unschooling/deschooling/conscious parenting topics. 
We also offer deschooling community chats, small group coaching, ALC Immersion programs & Facilitation and Parenting Trainings at our Agile Learning Community, Explora ALC and other collaborative Agile Learning Centers.
We support you to shed those oxidized beliefs and programmings that keep you stuck in oppressive systems of control, so you can liberate yourself and your kids and shift into a flow based on trust and freedom!

The Shift

Moving from uncertainty and control, to trust and freedom


The Shift is a bilingual (English/Spanish) program for parents, teachers and adults supporting youth and life-long learners, focused on shifting from a paradigm of oppression, control & fear to one of trust, equity and freedom… discovering the true value of learning, community building and equitable relationships.

“The Shift was an opportunity for me to find myself, know myself and understand myself. It has personally helped me to confront my childhood traumas, and I have been able to accept and forgive myself. I feel more free and authentic. What has surprised me most is that I have been able to change. The Shift has been liberating and magical.”
“I feel really happy and excited for the new path of learning that I have embarked on thanks to The Shift, but I also feel tired because it is overwhelming to be so aware of my own behavior and change it if necessary. I need time and space to process it all.”
“If I change, everything changes. I have changed and the dynamic in my house has changed as well. Thanks to The Shift I feel more fulfilled and happy. I am excited about all that we can achieve as parents, as a family and as humanity.”
“After participating in The Shift I am more conscious about how I relate to others and from where I relate. I am putting aside authoritarianism and I am listening to the needs of the environment and those around me. We reach agreements and the relationship between everyone in my household has changed for the better. There is more harmony and peace in my family.”
“What I take with me from this week is the determination to slow down, take my time in each and every situation, disconnect from the clock and allow myself to be and feel. The Shift is incredible! It is absolutely worth it to invest the time and money in this transformation. I think that if all of humanity took this training, we could truly change the world.”
“It was a magical week. This type of free learning lets you be your true self. There are no mistakes because we learn from mistakes and while you are connected to your heart, any path you take is the right one. I learned that the process is so much more important as the result and patience accompanies it. I lived a week of profound authenticity.”
“This week has been living like a child… in complete amazement. It has been a leap to a whole other level I never knew existed. I am totally transforming my life. "
“The Shift represents a before and after in my life. I wholeheartedly recommend it because it is taking me to places and heights that I never imagined I could reach. Like everything in life, I know that one must be open to receive all of the lessons that life gives us on our journey and we receive these lessons when we are ready. More than one month after taking this training, I continue to process, receive lessons and experience moments of deep realization. This week has definitely been the beginning of a marvelous adventure”.
