From right relation and co-creation, we are building a new foundation!

   “Couples Fishbowl”

After being in a “couple” and tracking couples it seems to me that we need to mirror each other in a bigger conversation. We invite couples who are excited about relationships built on honoring our individual needs and being fully authentic with one another to this experience.

The practice of listening when you are not in the inner circle being heard, to reflect what you experience and growing more true in the mirrors of the others living in unique/similar situations. Like all things, relationships change, and we grow more mature. Let’s get real and find ways to soar. Win-Wins.

We are welcoming all people to the three weeks and the pop-ups, we are planning to create in-person fish bowls soon.

“Building Brotherhood” 

Do you have a solid Personal Myth? We all have one that we are following, consciously or not. Others will do it for us if we don’t assert who we are in our reflections and narratives. A personal myth informs who you are and guides you through the challenges of your life. It is more than a narrative; it is your Hero myth. It is your meaning and purpose orated and written out for you to refer to and for others to know you. It maps out where and what you have done to get where you are now. It involves all the things that incorporate who you are. Yet, it is not an itemized list of events. It is full of themes, metaphors, and symbols that give rich meaning to our lives. Its goal is to provide a healing narrative to de-pathologize life.
De-pathologizing life is to take responsibility for life and not perceive it as a force attacking you. It puts the individual in control and takes it out of the hands of “powers that be.”

Goals of the group:

First, we will be identifying our stories and identifying the desirable themes, and editing the ones that are not useful.

Second, we will identify the rites of passage we have undergone and the ones we would like to create for ourselves.

Third, we will create an initiatory ritual for the new life story we want to actualize.

Facilitated by Miles Thompson and Chris Scacco.

Miles leads Couples Fishbowl along with Madeline Thompson. They have been married for 20 years and going. He specializes in Jungian psychology and rites of passage.

Chris is an experienced group facilitator who has previously co-facilitated 2 men’s groups for Growing with the Seasons. Chris holds a Master’s in Social Work (MSW) and has over 10 years experience in mental health counseling.

$15 suggested offering per session. 

90 Minutes Group Sessions. We will include Zoom link & address in Google Doc that will be automatically sent to users once they register for a session.

“Motherhood Through the Seasons”

Madeline is currently hosting open hours for the mothers already enrolled in the group. The support group is full right now, but she is open to being a guest speaker in other groups. Contact Madeline if you would like to co-create with mothers.

Learning to be a mom is for sure a classroom for authenticating and maturing. We will meet parts of ourselves we did not want to see. It takes courage and compassion. May we entertain each other with our new realities. Thanks for showing up and growing the new you. We believe in you!

We have created a seasonal formula to support the journey. The winter being a time of introspection will be an art project or vision board for integration. The Spring will be an online series to track with the other mothers and grow themes for what is alive.  The Summer we will gather in person and have some quality time remembering our values and connecting to nature. In the Fall we will resume tracking for 8 weeks to prepare for the letting go and growing true that happens year after year. Living for a reason, growing with the seasons.. Is what we do.

6 Week Virtual Sessions
Spring: March – May 
Winter: November – January

We want to looking to keep things affordable, and want keep a container with familiar faces supporting each other every week. 

Zoom Link for Sessions will be sent via email after Registration is complete. Payment accepted through Venmo in “Pay with Venmo” button.

“Sisterhood Satsang”

Growing True as a she in the pure reflections of my sisters is so rich in laughter, creativity,  tears, and lessons on relationships. Through the divine mirrors of sisters, so much is revealed, sometimes its parts unhealed, sometimes its patterns that magnetize, sometimes it is just an exchange of wisdom from a sovereign position. After 30 years of growing sister support groups, it has become crystal clear that we can co-create a shared frequency of harmony when we consciously meet in a safe place to grow our grace. We grow grace in the pure reflections as our compassion grows from their hearts shares. We tune in, we breathe deep, we set a tone for the shares, we pass the stick, we light our candles, we listen, we share, we sing, we dance, we pray and we play.

Sisterhood Satsang: Tuning True 2023 Birthing Our Essence. This offering will be in person here in New Jersey and New York Area till July 14, 2023. The next step is a call out to all sisters who are aligned to tuning true and would like to synchronize in prayer monthly too.

Two or three sisters or more who would like to hold circles in their area informed by our shared genius to grow grace and harmony in our families by tuning true. I will be starting up a new circle in Utah and would like to offer the itinerary to the satsangs with lots of creative freedom to those who feel aligned. 

We are moving to Utah in August!!

My intention is to let go and grow. I pray I leave everything better than I found it, inspired to be true. GWTS is alive in co-creations to support a strong foundation. Here We Grow!

“Call to the Cards”

Upon feeling a deep call from the cards to play for win-win outcomes, Madeline began studying Cardology with Rashad Jones. Now she invites her GWTS Family community to join the project analyzing each personality type. If you want to participate in the research, fill out the form for the “Call to the Cards” 2022-2023.

Each week will feature a different set of cards. Using this chart you can find what card you are based on your birthday, and pick the matching upcoming date. Join the Zoom calls on Tuesday and Thursdays to hear Rashad and Madeline share more about the qualities of each card. Madeline is also hosting a a drop-in talking series on the Clubhouse app called The Card Table on a weekly basis if you want to connect with her more.

Rashad Jones is a Cardology researcher, consultant, and life coach. By applying personality types based on birth dates to a standard deck of playing cards, Cardology provides an opportunity for self-reflection with the empowering metaphor of “playing your cards.” Each birthday has an identity and purpose. This tool serves a role similar to Astrology, Human Design, and Myers-Briggs Personality Tests. Rashad is a student of this tool that is here to help guide people toward personal fulfillment and self-awareness. If you are interested in diving deeper, you can book a reading with Rashad. You should include your birthday and location of birth in notes. The exact time is very helpful and will lead to better results. 

To learn more about cardology, visit Rashad’s website or follow him on Instagram @rashadncards for updates on the specific cards featured on the weekly “Call to the Cards.”
