 Blooming Marigolds

Blooming Marigolds is an online hybrid course for girls and their moms.  The course is a 5-part series that combines video with an online meeting to help girls and moms create connections through education and communciation.  The online videos are divided into 2 sections - One for girls and one for parents. Once registered, you are provided a link with the online videos to watch on your timeline.  Each Module has been recorded in small durations (approximately 10-20 mins each) in order to watch easily with suggestion discussion guides at the end of each module.  

After registering you will be sent a link to schedule a 1-on-1 zoom meeting with Dr. Kim.  This gives moms and daughters the chance to meet for 45 minutes with an educational psychologist to ask questions and discuss the information they learned. Upon registering you will be sent digital supplemental materials with 2 links - one for the Girl's Course and one for the Parent's Course.  Each course has similar content in each module although they are tailored differently for each.  You are encouraged to use the digital materials as discussion guides to use with each other after each module.

                 Girl Power Ups

This class was developed as a meeting space for girls that have been introduced to the Marigold Girls Book or program. The class focuses on ways to support girls in their practice of using the techniques of being authentic to who they are, even in the face of challenges. It is necessary for participants to have either purchased and read the book or been a part of a previous Marigold Girls program to participate in this class since we will be discussing and sharing ways they have implemented the skills they have learned.
The weekly class will be structured with check in's for each girl to share some experiences from the week with guidance from Dr. Kim. A short mindfulness exercise will be included each week as well to provide the girls with practice in using mindful techniques as well as ask any questions or share challenges they encounter along the way. The goal of this group is to provide the girls with space to share openly and practice skills with each other that they may have difficulty doing in a "real-time setting".
