Suzi Tucker, Michelle Blechner – Parenting in the Time of NOW
Once COVID is past — masks tucked into the corners of closets and all the fighting about vaccines subsided — parents will still be living with the consequences of this unexpected breach of everything expected. Parents will be living with them because their children will be.
Children especially have experienced all the elements of trauma — a rupture in the assumptions of everyday life — and we as parents cannot turn our heads. It may be tempting to cross our fingers in the hope that our children will forget and simply “return to normal.” But this sends a dangerous message … that it is not okay to be scared or uncertain, confused or angry. Frankly, we do not want to teach our children to pretend nothing happened so that we get to feel better. We do not want to teach them that we are too small for their big feelings.
In this series, Michelle and Suzi will explore the global questions that the pandemic has brought to the surface as well as the specific parenting questions that you, the participants, bring forward. Our focus will be on offering tools and strategies for you to put into practice right now to help scaffold your children.We will use didactic and experiential approaches, a systemic and constellation lens, as well as developmental theory and homework “assignments,”to inspire you as you discover new ways to rise to this extraordinary moment.
A LITTLE ABOUT MICHELLE: I am an eclectic who others call a visionary. I have established and maintained several successful businesses and have acted as a consultant for some 40 years. In 2009 I became a coach and was introduced along the way to the constellation world: my “Missing Link.” Initially taught by Suzi Tucker and Mark Wolynn, I was able to build a thriving practice and a large international community. I went on to work with Bert Hellinger and many other central figures, and more recently I have deepened my knowledge of Systemic and Organizational work studying with Jan Jacob Stam and associates at the Bert Hellinger Institute of the Netherlands. I am the founder of MOSAIC, the Movement, which allows me to pursue one of my passions: providing international platforms for well-known teachers and talented new names. My own Systemic Coaching, based on Systemic Reconstruction, continues to be central to my professional life.
A LITTLE ABOUT SUZI: Having cofounded Zeig, Tucker & Theisen, Publishers, with Dr. Jeffrey K. Zeig, I had the good fortune to meet Bert Hellinger — the pioneer of Family Constellations — in 1998. I went on to collaborate with him on most of his books published in English, and under his guidance, cofounded the Bert Hellinger Institute, USA. A presenter, writer, and teacher, I have the privilege to serve on the guest faculties of the NY Open Center, Omega Institute, the Shift Network’s Ancestral Healing Summit 2021, the 6th Australasian Constellation Intensive, and the 5th West Coast Constellations Intensive. My work with MOSAIC, founded by Michelle Blechner, continues to offer lively opportunities for vision and actualization. I am an essayist and a contributor to numerous publications in the fields of psychology and wellbeing. I am at work on several books slated for 2021. www.suzitucker.com
