Please join me for a complimentary Group Mentoring session every Monday from 12 noon – 12:45 pm. Each week, we’ll explore a topic from various wisdom-based traditions such as Buddhism, Yogic Philosophy, and Huna. We will discuss select excerpts from extraordinary Mystics such as St. John of the Cross in his book “The Dark Night of the Soul” and Teresa of Avila in her piece “The Interior Castle.”
Our goal is to gain an understanding of ourselves through the examination of self. How can we come to recognize our power of choice and begin to heal our relationships with ourselves? And in doing so, how can we use this to conduct healthy relationships with others?
All sessions will be held virtually over Google Meet and a link will be sent out beforehand to all those who’ve registered.
What is Group Mentoring?
To the untrained eye, group mentoring can look a lot like regular training. However, group mentoring is more similar to traditional mentoring in that the mentee is still driving the relationship. Each mentee has their own learning and developmental goals, which may or may not be similar to the other mentees in the group. To help mentees achieve these learning goals, mentors will ask questions, share relevant stories, and complete learning activities. The group mentoring is a confidential, safe space for mentees to share their struggles.
What are the Benefits?
A major benefit to mentees is that many feel more comfortable in a group setting rather than one-on-one, taking out some of the intimidation that can come with one-on-one mentoring. Mentees also get multiple perspectives at the same time, as there are different mentors available in the room. This experience can provide mentees with a richer, more complex understanding of various issues. Additionally, group mentoring can accelerate network building for mentees. Not only are mentees able to build relationships with several mentors at once, mentees are able to build relationships with their peers in group mentoring. The camaraderie built within a group mentoring cohort can be very meaningful to mentees.
