What is a mentor session?
Mentor sessions are small group, virtual seminars with a dedicated host (and sometimes co-host) to lead a discussion on a certain topic related to mistletoe therapy. Sessions are open to all registered members of the Foundation but cater specifically to beginners in the field.
What topics are mentor sessions on?
Sessions generally revolve around the introduction to the use of mistletoe treatment and therapy, as well as topics regarding general anthroposophic medicine and remedies.
So how does it work?
Sessions take place on Zoom. Each session is set up Q&A style, where the host(s) answer questions prepared by members pertaining to the topic at hand. Members will take turns going around the room asking questions. Questions and responses should be succinct so everyone gets the chance to have their questions answered. Hosts may also choose to share slides on certain topics to illustrate concepts or to make the most of the time if it’s a smaller group or there are less questions. Each session is capped at seven individuals and lasts approximately 60-90 minutes.
How often are mentor sessions scheduled?
Right now we are hosting sessions on a rolling basis, usually one to two times per month, depending on availability. Sessions generally occur at 8:30PM (EDT) on Thursdays but this may differ by session.
