LIFE COACH & MENTORING
remember who you are!
You best serve others by reminding them of their song. Judgment, punishment, and power plays don’t correct; they only drive human beings further from their joy and aggravate pain and self-defeating behavior. When someone is in distress or conflict, help them remember who they really are, and they’ll have no need to hurt others ~ Alan Cohen
No one is the same. We have designed an individualized, integrated plan to guide each user toward success, taking into account individual backgrounds and experiences, and then laying out concrete goals and benchmarks. Throughout the curriculum, a user will explore topics surrounding their identity—from before they were born to the present. A user will wrestle with questions around stories about their birth. They will face questions like, “What happened before, during, and after you were born?” or, “What prophesy or event took place during your pregnancy?” Connecting yourself back to the place of belonging will bring about healing and reconnect you to the original source of life (God).
education and Career path
No one learns the same way. Our curriculum will help each user to overcome academic and individual learning challenges by building on individual inner knowledge, supporting strengths, and providing tools for triumph. We are advocating that Western education should embrace people’s natural abilities. This curriculum critically examines traditional education and helps users to explore how to use it to advance their natural skills (i.e., what can I do beyond the confines of classroom education).
No one is without the spirit. The IESSP curriculum will help each user discover their inner spirituality, moral discipline, and Christian values within a community of caring friends. The curriculum helps learners to understand the many aspects of spirituality. Users will explore spirituality as the measure of how willing they are to allow God to enter their lives and guide them along the way. Spirituality involves understanding the spiritual power of evil and good, and the power of God entering the world through us. Spirituality is not about rules, rituals, and man-made religions; rather, it is about having a relationship with God. Spirituality can be found in the ordinary things of life and unusual places. The primary question to be answered throughout the duration of this lesson is this: How do I connect to God?
No one is alone or without a community. The IESSP curriculum will help each user develop love and responsibility for themselves and others and help them realize that they are part of a loving community. Relationships or the lack of them can be a blessing or a curse. This curriculum focuses on cultivating healthy relationships with people from conception to old age. A user will examine the relationships they have with their parents, siblings, friends, spouses, coworkers, and children. Emphasis is placed on healing and wholeness through reconciliation.
The IESSP is an acronym for Identity, Educational, Spiritual and Social Plan. It is
modeled after the special education IEP (Individualized Educational Plan) and Inspired
by the poem They Are Singing Your Song.
The overall goal of the curriculum is to help users to remember and claim who they
are in all of their beauty and blemishes. It will encourage participants to discover
their unique path, finding that particular guiding song inside that will let them face
challenges, nurture spirituality, and celebrate individuality within a loving
community. With the IESSP, users will be challenged to maximize their potential
through strategic planning and accountability. I hope to bring together a circle of
spiritual, educational, and social leaders, resources, and mentors who can help others
grow into a confident, spiritual, and caring person.
Rev. Dr. Moses Sowale is the founder of The Voice Inc., The Brigade Youth Program
Brockton, The Abigail’s Women Project, and the pioneer priest of Grace Chapel
Episcopal/Anglican Church Brockton. This curriculum is a direct product of his over
twenty-five years experience in working with young people, women, men and their
families. The IESSP is designed to help individuals claim their unique identity,
discover their special abilities and educational learning styles, find their unique
connection with God and be reconciled to their unique person or community of
belonging. The curriculum will be used in the context of one-on-one mentoring, life
coaching and pastoral care and counseling.
