My Teen Myself creates a circle of parents seeking a way through the challenging years of their child’s adolescence. While many parenting programs focus on outer skills, My Teen Myself builds inner practices and capacities. Using dynamic sevenfold processes in each module, parents practice receiving individualized knowledge unique to their parenting and new forces for their busy lives. The program builds their inner strength and capacities for parents and teachers. It can also be taken by mentors and coaches for personal and professional development.
It is offered in series of 7 sessions, each session being 2 hours with weekly practices. A session begins with a sharing of the week’s learning, a lesson, processing the lesson and an art process. Each program builds on capacities from the previous module. Programs can also be taken as individual courses. Simple artistic exercises accompany the sessions and painting supplies
Module 1 – Seeing Your Teen
Experience a new way to be present with your teen. Increase your awareness of your child as a being of body, soul, and spirit. Open the door to new understandings and insights about yourself and your teen with the sevenfold path.
Module 2 – Child and Human Development
Learn about the stages of human development and how your teen is individualizing the universal human journey. Use the mirror of your own “growing up” and biography to re-enliven your understanding of the journey through childhood and into adulthood. Gain new perspectives and forces for parenting.
Module 3 – My Child’s Angel
Find a question about your teen for which you seek guidance. Follow a 7- session process to connect to your teen’s angel, who wishes to unite with you in supporting your child. Watercolour painting.
Module 4 – My Child My Karma
To consider karma is to open to the idea of past lives and to how the past is still part of your life and your relationships. Karma work challenges us to new levels of understanding, development, and healing. Through the seven weeks, you will awaken to your past and build capacities to meet your child in a new way.
Module 5 – My Family My Karma
Building on the fall term, we now turn to the karma that we have created with family members as a result of past lives. What is the meaning and purpose of this karma? What capacity is needed to meet the situation in a new way? Karma is the heart of transformation work and when taken up with interest and re-newed intentions, it brings healing forces to the ‘other’ and to ourself.
Module 6 – My Karma My Destiny
Working with karma develops the capacities of heart sensing and speaking. With growing capacities, the focus now turns to life intention and work. Each new incarnation brings the possibility of awakening to future karma on one’s own unique destiny path. This final karma term awakens the will and courage to speak the Word within
