The Mentorship Program
Preparation for the Sessions
an Intuitive Heart Discovery Group
on Making Good Use of the Mentoring
Hosting a group can be as simple as having people take turns reading the instructions in the workbook. You can help by setting an example of openness, curiosity, non-defensiveness, and risk taking, and by sharing how you relate to the exercises. It is your belief in the value of practicing the exercises that is your main leadership value. It is not necessary to "teach" anything, or be able to "explain the theory." Enjoy doing the exercises and your enthusiasm will be contagious.
For each session there is some reading material, taken from the book, Caring for the Creative Spirit. It is on-line, here, for you, in this web-site. It is not the purpose of the reading material to prepare you to teach the exercise, or to have you lecture about what you have read. Instead, the purpose of the reading material is to give you advance exposure to the exercise and especially to sharpen your perceptions and tune your intuition to the many levels of experience you will encounter.

read the background material for each exercise before the mentoring
session, so that you can be familiar with the ideas that lie in the
background of the exercises. The mentoring sessions provide you with an
orientation, support, and a chance to ask questions. I also ask some
questions of you, to get your thinking and intuition focused on the
