Welcome to Mentoring in 2023
Goethe is reported to have said:
"Until one is committed, there is always hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising to one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance which no one could have dreamed would come her way.
Whatever you can do or dream you can begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it."There is something about aligning ourselves that does this work. It is slow. Naturally we fall into thinking patterns, lose confidence... about ourselves, or having faith in what we are committing to. But the deeper thread holds us, gives us fire, and courage to say 'yes.' We are never ready to do what is nagging at us- until we say 'Yes' and then something happens which is different. The words that may emerge are something like this-'I do not know how to do this, the job is bigger than me, but let me give myself to learning."
Below is a timetable for the Core Mentoring Program (CMP) and the optional Prep for Assessment Classes, which are in addition to the CMP. Please add the relevant dates to your diary.
If you haven't already, full payment or the deposit for the Core Mentoring Program are now overdue. Monthly payments will begin from 12.01.2023.
Until classes start in February, either of the CMP23 plans below will provide access to Teacher Mentoring videos from 2022 which youl will find at the bottom of this page.
The mentoring classes are now available to book below. You will need to book to receive the link for the class. Both of the Nambucca Heads retreats and the Bali retreat are available for bookings through the Retreats page.
Core Mentoring Programming
In addition to these classes, I recommend you attend at least one other online class per week.
Additional to Core Program
• Saturday afternoon Classes - Preparation for Assessment
4 Teachers' Afternoon Classes on Saturdays from 1pm - 4pm.
The cost of this optional addition to the program is $360 for the year You can book your place below.
I encourage all who are doing the Mentoring Program to attend at least one other weekly class during the course. In the past, the Saturday class has been the class of preference, but it does not suit all. Whilst I cannot provide classes for free, I am always aiming to keep costs down, therefore, this year I am offering ongoing discounts to all mentees through the purchase of Concession 10 Class Passes. These can be accessed below. Please take advantage of this discount to attend additional classes during the week. All current 10 Class Pass holders have received an extension until 31st March.
