The Bowspring Mentorship program is six months of meeting one hour per week over Skype. It is a personalised program tailored to support each individual, assessing their particular needs and moving at a pace that allows maximum growth and development.
What is each session like?
Each session begins with a look at your personal findings through your movement patterns in the preceding week as well as any specific challenges you are facing. It then covers specific curriculum topics including Philosophy & Lifestyle, The Bowspring Algorithm, The Level One Curriculum, The Elementals, Breathing practices and Essential Katas.
What is the goal of the mentorship program?
To support your growth and evolution, to see biases and acknowledge habits and to create healthy self accountability via feedback, mirroring, acknowledgement & contemplation.
Will The mentorship program prepare me for becoming a Bowspring Teacher?
Absolutely. The mentorship program is designed to ensure that all of the basic curriculum is fully understood by each student which means that each student has the opportunity to demonstrate their understanding and receive feedback for improvement. As the process of training to be a teacher of The Bowspring Method also includes submission of video and demonstration of the katas, the mentorship program gives students an opportunity to practice these skills and receive constructive cues to increasing awareness and assimilating the Bowspring into daily life.
How does a Skype session work?
The sessions are done over Skype and full instructions are sent prior to your first date on how to set skype and your space up as well as an initial intake form which details your personal history and practice.
Is there anything else that I should know?
It is important to consider that the sessions are personally driven. We will cover the curriculum content however your own unique situation and process will dictate the direction in which your mentorship program evolves. The more prepared you are to work on your practice and develop your sense of personal accountability the greater your evolution will be.
