The program is designed as two, 13 month cycles, one following the Grandmother Teachings and one following the Grandfather teachings. These teachings I received on and through my own healing journey. It can be utilized or delivered in a variety of ways such as circles/group format, working independently or with a therapist/support person, in treatment settings and educational settings. The experiential storybook and workbook is divided into 26 stories; therefore, for those using this as a group experience will meet 26 times. No matter which way this recovery resource is utilized the workbook is the same. Between each story experience participants uses these workbook experiences and exercises to strengthen and deepen their wisdom. Depending on how the program is delivered, participants can meet according to their needs. Groups might meet once or twice a month, individuals may approach the steps weekly or monthly – the pace is flexible to adapt to the participants needs. Each step builds upon the next and all the creative and experiential exercises strengthen the healing component.
In between each teaching story, participants will turn to the workbook where they will find the corresponding expressive exercises for each step. The workbook contains weekly dream recording, affirmational and creative exercises, daily check in focused writing, inspirational images and links to musical recording where participants can download stories and songs. It is also helpful to reread and listen to the stories and songs while doing the workbook exercises.
