This curriculum is based on an understanding of the mind and the human experience. This understanding has been taught throughout the world to cultivate human potential and uncover innate mental health and resilience in the fields of, education, social services, corporate training, consulting, psychiatry, and drug and alcohol treatment systems.
The understanding and how the curriculum teaches the understanding:
“Thought is the creative agent we use to direct us through life. Thought is the master key that opens the world of reality to all living creatures. Thought is not reality; yet it is through Thought that our realities are created.”
Throughout this curriculum, thought is identified as the power to evaluate, imagine and remember. Unlike many teachings surrounding thought, the focus is not on positive or negative thinking. Instead, the focus remains on the fact that as human beings we were created with the free will to create our reality through our thinking.
“The SPARK, is constant and unchangeable. The personal mind, via Thought, is in a perpetual state of change. All humans have the inner ability to synchronize their personal mind with their SPARK to bring harmony into their lives.”
Throughout this curriculum, SPARK is identified as the source behind all things in life: everything seen, felt and experienced. Through the SPARK everyone has access to an innate mental health and resilience. This is our SPARK inside that guides us naturally. This SPARK may also be called intuition, instinct or common sense.
“Consciousness is the gift of awareness. Consciousness allows the recognition of form, form being the expression of Thought. Mental health lies within the consciousness of all human beings, but it is shrouded and held prisoner by our own erroneous thoughts. This is why we must look past our contaminated thoughts to find the purity and wisdom that lies inside our own consciousness.”
Throughout this curriculum, consciousness is simply identified as the awareness and experience of life around us. It brings to life our personal thoughts and our access to our SPARK inside.
The SPARK Mentoring Programs are specifically designed for youth, ages 6-22. Each lesson takes a deep look at how the human experience works and how we can use this knowledge to cultivate human and creative potential within all lives. Throughout this curriculum, facilitators and participants, alike, will be guided toward their SPARK in order to maximize their personal potential, giving them the Capacity and Confidence they need to thrive.
