Finding Freedom
Steve Sherwood's book Finding Freedom: The Five Choices That Will Change Your Life guides us on a journey into our "ways of being" that may no longer serve us so that we can recognize our strengths, and use them as powerful resources for accessing the greatness within. Through acceptance of our perceived flaws, we can find a new way of being that connects us to our hidden powers and talents. Bringing those strengths into our immediate environment releases our attachment to negative behaviors that were useful in the past. A new paradigm is embraced.  Add to Cart

Results
- Personal Growth: The most powerful aspect of Inspiring Connection Homestudy programs is the wisdom and personal discovery of each participant. The result is deep and permanent integration of the material that is covered, and a supportive environment to apply the spiritual principles and practices in each person's life.

- Personal Connection: The 7-week structure results in a deep level of sharing and support based on the common purpose of personal discovery. Within the small group of 6-10 people, a sincere connection is fostered, giving each member a sense of belonging, and a new family of friends that makes them feel they belong. Many of these groups continue to meet for months and years after the conclusion of our program because of the strong connections they have made.

The Process
- Homestudy History: Homestudy programs have been a part of community life for decades, and is based on the 19th century Salons where small groups would gather to discuss topics or books and draw on the greater wisdom of the collective mind. These groups inspired major art movements, political activism, and spiritual movements. Churches actually were founded out of some these small groups. Larry Watson has researched and developed effective programs for you that tap into the unlimited potential of the  community of a small group.

- Book Series: Your Inspiring Connection series revolves around a spiritual and/or inspirational book that supports small group. Each Inspiring Connection program presents the books in seven segments that are used by your small groups in weekly meetings. The programs are referred to as Homestudy Groups because each group meets in a members home for the seven weeks.

- Homestudy Structure: Each series is designed as a self-directed program, with complete materials provided by Inspiring Connection to guide discussion and agendas. The agenda provides: information supplemental to the chosen book; affirmations; discussion questions; and practices for integrating the program through the week. There is no teaching guide since the moderator is not an instructor. The moderator is only providing a safe space for sharing, and guidance for the group to remain on subject.
Homestudy Development in Your Community
- Small Groups: The small groups are comprised of 6 to 10 participants,  one of whom is a moderator. Groups larger than 10 result in detachment and less interaction. All materials for scheduling the various phases are provided by Inspiring Connection.

- Hosts and Moderators: The moderators utilize the Moderator Training Manual provided by Inspiring Connection. A moderator's role is not to teach a class, but to hold a safe space for the participants to discuss and contribute to the group. The moderator also moves the group through the materials as necessary. Except for the above purposes, the moderator is an active participant.
