Becca Dragon – Living Adoption: the Conversation

Lifelong, Open-Ended, and Connection-Driven Exploration of Adoption with Our Children (payment plan available)

This is a 6 class series designed for adoptive parents of children ages 0-10. During these six classes we will explore how to create beauty, meaning, and moments of connection in our homes with adopted children. We will challenge ourselves to drop our anxieties and expectations while fostering an open ended, lifelong conversation about adoption and its impacts. This will be done through self-reflection, community interaction, and hands-on creative exercises.

Tuition includes all six classes and lifetime membership in our interactive closed group for participants and graduates of the class.

Class One (Explore vs. Explain): Why a conversation?, stop explaining and framing, the vantage point of the child, child development, imagination, “how do I’s”, relationship

Class Two (Rhythm vs. Schedule): senses of the young child, internal and external motivation, ritual, rhythm, beauty, reverence, elevation of the mundane

Class Three (Imagination vs. Information): the 4 temperaments, introduction to container stories, bedtime and importance of bedtime ritual

Class Four (Quest vs. Answers): creating the world of the container story, hard feelings and circumstances, emotions and events

Class Five (Wholeness vs. Duality): sharing our container stories, splintering in adoptees, getting rid of duality, importance of being whole

Class Six (Engagement vs. Education): ongoing self check of motivations, nightly reflection, responsibility for engagement with other adoptive parents, extended family/world at large, issues with Positive Adoption Language, the gift of “angry adoptees”, turning statements into questions

**we will be collectively working on container stories for three of these weeks.
