This beautiful painting by artist, Group member Carol Cannon, was sent as a photo birthday card to me by her a few years ago. I hope that in scanning the photo her original gorgeous colors and composition have not been altered too much.
My project this week was about sorting through financial papers, organizing and storing the papers from last year and making room for the new ones. By getting ready to file my tax returns I have the physical sense of the old year being completed and the new one starting out fresh and clear. I love when I complete this ritual by shredding the oldest set of papers that are no longer needed to be stored.
I’m not at that point yet, but it’s one of my life’s little rituals that always feels so good to me.
While this is happening I am thinking about other odds and ends that need completion before our new year is no longer new.
One thing I would like to talk about is my personal business transition which is still in transition.
You may have noticed that the name of this newsletter changed a little while back without my drawing attention to the fact. Also altered is the paragraph about the blog site and my practice.
For almost seven years the major object of my passion and mission was doing all that I possibly could to actively hold an energetic space for each of the members of the Group, for all of my students, with the purpose of growing excellent practitioners of Resonance Repatterning.
Underneath this was my conviction that by establishing and supporting this community in New York City, wonderful RR would grow and expand to reach so many other people.
Concurrently, my passion was directed to the Certification Board of the Repatterning Practitioners Association and in my teaching and organizing a complete series of the basic courses every year.
At the end of 2010 I received crystal clear Guidance, (much to my chagrin), that I had to drastically alter my relationship to all aspects of my involvement with RR.
Simply and in a nutshell, the problem was about my egoic attachment in all that I have just described which had to be relinquished.
I struggled for a whole year until I finally surrendered at the end of 2011 and let go of teaching the RR seminars. I let go of my participation as chair person and member of the Certification Board. I let go of the monthly meeting of the Group.
I opened my private practice to include more psychotherapy clients ( I am a fully licensed clinical social worker) and to more clients who want physical/energetic support in their own healing by my providing Reconnective Healing®, Reiki and other energy based work.
I changed the name of my practice, as suggested by my friend / business/blog consultant, Carolyn Winter ( www.lighttravels.com). My business card said Transformation Healing since 1995. My new cards say Radiant Healing instead.
I rescheduled the cancelled Practitioner Skills Development Day from November, to happen on January 29th, 2012 as an all day class for certification work and for those who are already certified to earn half of their 2012 CEU’s. By the way, this class is open to Certified Practitioners and to Student Practitioners who would like to attend for the learning, the CEU’s and to possibly receive a session. Being observed is not a requisite to attend.
I have been giving a lot of thought about Group and Skills Development classes for 2012.Since I can no longer actively hold the space for certification and group members, I am trying to figure out how I can resume Group in a different way.
Within the next few weeks I hope that I will be ready to let you all know what I have in mind.
Here’s what I have in mind so far, but nothing is definite. When I am ready I would like to have Group meet at least four times in 2012 so that there continues to be an accessible way to earn required CEU’s .
Rather than having monthly dates that I am committed to saving for Group, there may be a list of proposed Group dates, with reminders posted here on my newsletter.
Group members would be required to commit to attend a session when they wanted to come to Group, at least three weeks in advance and if there are enough people , then three weeks beforehand everyone would know that Group was happening..
So far, I am willing to try this out for one Group and I will set a proposed date for that within the next week or two.
I’d like to do two full Skills Development classes in 2012 and I am again, unsure as to how that will work yet. But, I am getting there.
Lastly here are two ANNOUNCEMENTS
