Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.

Enki Education offers a unique and innovative way to approach living and learning, parenting and educating. In order to bring this work to families, over the years we have focused on curriculum work with the nitty-gritty of both classrooms and homeschools. At this time, we are closing the homeschool division and turning our attention to work more directly with parents and teachers to support an understanding of the heart of the Enki outlook. In turn they will be able to apply it more broadly to their own lives. This includes the offering of new online classes, parenting consultation, and updated written materials.

Our outlook weaves together many diverse elements in order to support our fundamental premise: the central task of both parenting and education, whether in the home, the classroom, or the homeschool, is the integration of body, heart, and mind within each child and parent. The result is the cultivation of an independent and flexible confidence - one that leads to competence, compassion, and delight.

This individual wellbeing is inseparable from the wellbeing of the communities of our lives – families, neighbors, the natural world, and the global community. For this reason, we focus on the helping both child and adult come to see their own strengths & struggles reflected in all peoples, and experience human greatness in all, regardless of nationality, race, or religion, through our Global Cultures and Natural Sciences work.
