New parenting series began yesterday p.m. in James Bay. In 2007 I organized 7 day live in retreat on the topic of getting intimate with living, speaking and sharing common values. Gregg Kendrick was one of the weeks 3 trainers and it was here he introduced me to the concept of being in the center of a relationship and balancing my personal needs to be more available to meet the other persons. This was a concept more advanced than the normal concept being introduced in 2007 of how to speak your values while hearing the other persons. This concept went into the unconscious structure of your position in the relationship!
This concept is one I have incorporated into having parents reflect the structure of their own family dynamics. As I suspected, a concept unfamiliar yet at evenings end the feedback was that of recognizing the benefits.
This will be a great workshop series as the parents have children from 3 to 28! This will meet my needs for learning, not unlike an awareness through movement lesson designed by Moshe Feldenkrais. His focus was on the person as an individual – no prescriptions of one fits all! This workshop is going to demand that each family be seen individually! This will be an interactive and reflective workshop, I can tell.
