Horizontal Communication is more than a communication technique. It’s also an attitude to life and human-to-human connection that opens the way for deeper, richer living. Practically, it’s a way to communicate more effectively and transform conflict into creative opportunity. On another level it’s a way to empower ourselves to live the more beautiful life we sense is possible, regardless of what’s ‘happening’.
Self-Directed Education Facilitator Development
Helping The Butterfly Hatch – Facilitator Training
Most of us by now have heard that helping a butterfly as it struggles out of its chrysalis can cripple it for life. This is also a good analogy for what can happen to learning when teaching gets in the way. (Ever wondered why so many schooled children end up hating maths?)
However, the answer is not as simple as “doing nothing”.
The way that you interact with a young person in Self-Directed Education (SDE) and support their process can have a big impact. This course is designed to build your confidence so that you can become an SDE optimiser – instead of a well-intentioned saboteur.
Whether you are Unschooling, or facilitating within a Sudbury or ALC or other setting, or just want to develop your theory and practice of SDE, this course can support you as you hatch your own wings.
Building on the success of the previous groups, Je’anna is ready to offer a condensed intensive introduction to SDE Facilitation – Nov 2020, Dec 2020 and Jan 2021.

About Je’anna’s Horizontal Communication Workshops
Horizontal Communication is communication that seeks to connect people in genuine mutual compassion and release, rather than staying trapped in power struggles. It builds more satisfying relationships, and bringsabout fresh, creative solutions to situations that used to feel stuck.
Many of us don’t realise that the way we communicate is shaped by a ‘vertical’ culture of domination. Almost all of us come from an ancestry of domination – whether our own particular ancestors were the dominators or the dominated. When we use the resulting heritage vertical communication strategies currently normal in our world, to try to express love and care, or to try to solve problems, this often backfires, and we’re left feeling bewildered: where did things go wrong?
Horizontal Communication can empower us to sustainably connect with those we love, as well as to transform interactions with ‘enemies’.
Horizontal Communication problem solving does not identify a perpetrator and a victim, but looks at mismatches of underlying needs, and seeks to replace solutions that meet the needs of only some parties, with dynamic win-win solutions that come closer to meeting everyone’s needs.
These workshops offer theoretical insight and practical tools for transforming lived experience.

Feedback from The Screen Time Webinar Series –
“The webinar helped me realize that my frustration with my son’s screen time was because I wasn’t getting to spend as much time with him as before. Since schools closed due to Covid, we weren’t chatting in the car on the way to and from school any more. I was pressuring him to spend more time with the family after dinner, essentially demanding to get my needs for relatedness met on my terms.
I realized that I had been ignoring many opportunities to connect with him about the games he was playing. I would check in on him from time to time during the day and he would eagerly tell me about the new guns or levels he’d mastered. However, I always cut this short since I was on a coffee break and had work to get back to. I now plan to drop in on him when I have more time to spare. I really think this will make a big difference to our relationship and I’m looking forward to the positive results.
Thanks very much for this insight Je’anna!” Graeme, Parent, South Africa
