Certification Corner

Certification Corner is a regularly appearing column in the RPA Journal and is written by the members of the Certification Board, Meryl Chodosh-Weiss, Shirley Lanyi, Mary Cameris and Paula Caplan. Each issue will focus on information about the Resonance Repatterning Certification process and Certification issues. If you have a question that you would like to be answered in the RPA Journal, you can email Meryl at meryl@beyourbliss.info.

Happy Spring everyone!  This season of the Wood element is about new beginnings, new growth, upward reaching movement, reaching your goals, being who you are in all of your uniqueness, having a sense of time and timing and optimism. When we think of Spring we can not help but think of abundance in terms of the profusion of nature’s re-birth and growth after winter’s stillness.

We hope to inspire growth and participation this Spring and our purpose in this article is: to announce the names of the 2011 RPA Designated Observers; to inform you about the C-Board’s activities; to congratulate our newest Certified Practitioner; and to remind you of the end of the “grace period’ and the beginning of the enforcement of the 2010, Lapsed Student Practitioner Policy.

The annual mandated Designated Observer-RPA Certification Board teleconference was held on January 28, 2011. The participants shared information and discussed questions about Practitioner Skills Development classes. From now on, these classes will be announced by the Certification Board both at the seasonal student teleconference calls and in this article.

The designated Observers shared stories about the joyful experiences they have had in their work with Student Practitioners.
