The 2018 PAX Mastery & Certification Program
Parenting In Partnership - Alison Armstrong and Cindy Sawatzky, Instructors


Our most advanced certification Topic Path is focused on extending the Elements of Partnership, as taught in The Heart of Partnership, to the challenging arena of parenting and educating young people as an expression of Human Spirit. This Topic Path includes how to create partnership with fellow parents, caregivers and educators, as well as partnering with young people themselves. Having completed certification in Heart of Partnership is a non-negotiable prerequisite.

New Topic and Research & Clarification calls taught by Alison, in addition to one dedicated Office Hour each cycle. Teaching Adventures Calls taught by Cindy Sawatzky.

Limited to 12 Certification Candidates.


Parenting In Partnership Topics:


(Please note: Topics are bulleted rather than numbered as Alison reserves the right to change the order of the topics as the program unfolds.)

Immediately after the January Transformational Teaching Skills weekend with Alison, you'll begin learning, researching and teaching each of these 8 Topics:

  • Harnessing Instinct: This Topic Path asserts that the human instincts to procreate then protect then provide — according to our fears, values, needs and dreams — are the most intense regarding children. And our instinctive priorities often leave out "Who's life is it?" This applies from parents-to-be through grandparents, caretakers, educators, even total strangers. We can understand and harness this tremendous energy to create freedom, compassion and respect, heal our childhoods, and fuel our partnerships.
  • Creating New Possibilities with Imagination and Resistance: If we don't intentionally use our imagination, our human animal brain will hallucinate, usually by picturing what we don't want, are afraid of, or dread. How much of our parenting, childcare and education is based on unfounded, or solely past-based hallucinations? On the other hand, consciously imagining what really matters, and learning to welcome the productive resistance of our partners of all ages, is essential to capitalizing on everyone's intelligence, experience and perspective.
  • Choosing to Be Trustworthy and Courageous: Re-examine our "schticks" to create an honest expression of pressure, and learn to consciously release that pressure to empower. Take on being trustworthy as a partner or parent by only asking for what you need that we've committed to first, and following up with predictable pressure and confidence.
  • Sharing Accountability for the What and the How: Explore what adults and young people can be accountable for in daily life, and find out how much more fun, respect, connection and accomplishment we can share.
  • Generating Space for Respect and Connection: The concept of "space" applies to everything from feelings to time, and has a profound effect on the quality of our lives and relationships. By committing to clear, expand, and hold our personal spaces, while honoring others' when we can, we can be the source of deeper, more empowering connections, more enjoyment and mutual respect.
  • Practicing What We Preach: Most people fail to get what we need — and cause a tremendous amount of frustration for people young and old — by not being clear before we ask or tell, changing our minds anyhow, neglecting to acknowledge effort and results, and appreciating something else entirely. By practicing Clarity, Consistency, Acknowledgement & Appreciation in our approach to accountabilities, results and accomplishments, we can reduce disappointment, heartache and failure.
  • Providing Authenticity & Honor: Giving someone their "Heart's Desire" can be exhilarating. The sense of fulfillment tops the charts. But how often do we honor all our partners with the knowledge of our Heart's Desire? This level of authenticity requires clarity, trust, freedom from the past, and makes partnerships in every context sublime.
  • Respecting the Process of Entrust: Be kind to your partners by setting them up to succeed with matters to them and to you. This requires all the Elements of Partnership with patience, perseverance and flexible goals.

Conference Calls for Parenting In Partnership will take place at a day and time Wednesdays from 4:30-5:30 Pacific Time/7:30-8:30 Eastern. All calls are recorded and available within 48 hours.

Topic Cycles


Every 5-weeks, you complete a new Topic Cycle, as follows:

  • Week 1: New Topic Conference Call. Each new topic in the Topic Path is taught by the Instructor. Day and time of calls will be listed on the individual Topic Path page in September.
  • Week 2: Research & Clarification Conference Call. Participants sign up to share the results and findings of the research they conducted with themselves and others on the new topic. Guidelines for research questions are provided at the 1st weekend. The Instructor provides clarification for the understanding, implementation and teaching of the topic.
  • Week 3: Teaching Space, no call. Have fun contributing to others and practicing your transformational teaching skills!
  • Week 4: Teaching Adventures Conference Call. Participants sign up to share their challenges and victories in teaching the topic. Trainers coach and clarify to improve your ability to teach the topic.
    • AND Individual Research Journals are due. A 5,000-10,000-word Research Journal by this date. Trainers provide feedback on the Journals by the end of the 5th week, usually in writing, although a few may offer oral reviews. A template for your Research Journal is provided to help you collect information and quotes that will make your teaching of the topic one-of-a-kind.
  • Week 5: Individual Demonstration Calls. You provide a demonstration of your ability to teach the topic to a volunteer, and create an impact. Trainers "pass" or "no pass" the Demonstration, and provide feedback and input for ongoing improvement. Calls are recorded for the participant's benefit.

Live Participation is strongly preferred but not required. All calls are recorded and available within 48 hours.

Time Expected: To budget your time, plan on a minimum of 6-10 hours per week for learning, researching, journaling, teaching and demonstrating your mastery.

Program Enhancements


These parts of the program are optional and greatly enhance your skills, abilities and understanding:

Alison's "Office Hours" by teleconference provide an additional, more casual opportunity for participants to ask questions about their Topic Path or the program. This provides clarification and expansion of the information. It is a favorite part of the program for most participants. Empowering Men and Empowering Women share two Office Hours per topic. Extreme Freedom and Parenting In Partnership have one exclusive call each, per topic.

Individual Coaching Calls are provided for clarification of topics, support in synthesizing of research, formulating teaching agendas, developing audiences, and preparing for Demonstration calls. One optional 25-minute call per topic cycle is included. Additional calls may be arranged for a fee.


Your Tuition includes:


  • Five 3-day Transformational Teaching Skills Weekends taught by Alison Armstrong
  • Eight 5-week Topic Cycles covering your choice of one Mastery Topic Path
  • The certification process of Research Journal review, Demonstration Calls and the support of a program coach.
