We’re happy to have Ashley Woleben on the show today! Ashley is a military wife and homeschooling mother to five. She obtained a BA concentrating on the fields of anthropology and classical studies and has completed her MA in humanities with a focus on Medieval theology and global literature. Focusing on philosophical anthropology, she is currently co-hosting The Classical Homeschool Podcast and blogging at Between the Linens.
In today’s episode, we discuss so many good things — what scholé is and how it relates to what the book A Mind for Numbers calls “diffuse mode learning,” plus how to make scholé a part of your life. Ashley is always a very interesting person to talk to and I know you’ll love this episode.
It’s not too late to join in our retreat fun!
If you are listening to this episode the day it comes out, then the Scholé Sisters fall retreat is one week from TOMORROW! September 21st! We’re so excited!
