Wow, have you seen our 2014 class schedule? It is looking great! Two classes have already started and the year is just beginning.

And we have two – count ’em TWO! – Premenopause Transition courses scheduled as well: June 8th and August 9th.

The Transition classes are complementary to the Main Class Series. As the name implies, in the Main Class Series you learn all you need to know to practice the sympto-thermal method, but these two type of life events, postpartum and premenopause, can be a little tricky and have special rules in regards to interpreting the mucus patterns that are affected by the changing hormone levels. Amazingly, the rules for both are just about the same which is why CCL has combined the courses into one book simply called Transitions Student Guide. Though rules may overlap at times, the end result is different (return of fertility after childbirth vs. approaching the end of the fertile years), and so it is taught in two separate courses.

At this time, Postpartum classes are scheduled upon request, usually because the time when a woman is ready for that course depends upon her due date and so on. The Premenopause class, however, is something that a woman may take anytime, usually close to the time that she suspects the change is coming or that it will come in a year or two. Learning the materials ahead of time is always helping not only in successfully interpreting cycles but also to prepare, even emotionally, for the changes to come, and to learn ways to stay healthy during the changes.

For those with current membership to CCL, there is no additional cost to take any Transition course, or, for that matter, an Upgrade Class for those who would like a refresher to the Main Class Series. The only cost is that of the student guide books, which can be purchased when registering for a class. For those without current membership, there is simply a small fee in addition to the book.

So, check out our schedules, bookmark or pass them along! You never know who might be interested, and we can always use the extra help in spreading the word.

Peace!

Columbia, MO: Next Class Begins Sept. 22nd

For those of you in the Columbia, Mo., area, we have another main class series beginning Sunday Sept. 22nd at 1:30pm.

The first class will be held at Our Lady of Lourdes parish hall in Columbia, and classes two and three will be held in their home. Teaching couple, Christian and Kate Basi, have made the first class free and available to anyone interested in learning more about the Couple to Couple League’s sympto-thermal NFP method without the cost of registration. An RSVP is requested so that they know how many to expect, but it is not required. So, for you last-minute planners, come on by!

Each class is usually about 2 1/2 hours long, and students learn quite a bit in this short amount of time, especially with the first one, so be prepared to put your thinking caps on. A certain amount of class time is spent putting the method to work by completing practice charts. Those interested in continuing the course will receive help interpreting their personal charts at the second and third classes.

This is the last scheduled class for this year; more classes have already been scheduled for 2014 and can be found here. However, if additional classes are desired sooner, or if those dates do not work for you, please do not hesitate to contact a teaching couple in your area. You can also contact Jeremy and Maria Henson, who would be happy to discuss a possible virtual course with you.

Additionally, we do not have any postpartum and premenopause classes scheduled at this time, but we hope to soon. In the meanwhile, please also contact one of our teaching couples if either of these courses are needed.
