Level 2 Blessing Workshop: October 3-5 at UTS
Contributed by the Blessing and Family Ministry
Want to learn more about the Matching Process and how to prepare for marriage? A Level 2 Marriage Blessing workshop is coming up on October 3–5 at the Barrytown College of UTS in New York! This workshop is for anyone who is preparing to begin the Matching Process, and is essential for attending the Holy Marriage Blessing Ceremony. Parents of matching candidates are also encouraged to attend together with their children.
The workshop begins with a self-reflection exercise where participants will ask themselves: “How prepared am I, and what am I bringing to the table?” to deepen participants’ understanding of healthy relationships and to introduce the value of lineage. Two books will be introduced at this time:The Family Matching Handbook, and Finding the One: a Guide to Matching and Blessing in the Unification Tradition, which provides clear, step-by-step guidance for those beginning the matching process. The workshop includes the following four presentations:
- What Do I Bring to the Table?
- Matching Smarts
- Understanding the Matching Process
- My Heritage and Legacy
This will most likely be the only Level 2 Blessing workshop offered on a national level this year. However, improved curriculum materials for a Level 2 workshop and small group study will be available in September 2014 so that local programs can be organized. Two Level 3 workshops for engaged couples will be organized in New York and in California in December 2014/January 2015.
