Online Workshop for Matching and Blessing Candidates (and Parents)
Friday 28th to Sunday 30th January
Dear Blessed Families!
We want to warmly invite you to the upcoming Level 2 EUME Matching and Blessing Preparation Workshop.
A Level 2 Matching and Blessing Preparation Workshop is a requirement for all who wish to attend the Blessing. It is designed to support all candidates and parents who are preparing for the matching, and those already matched who are getting ready to go to the Blessing.
This will be the last official Level 2 Matching and Blessing Preparation Workshop before the next Blessing in April 2022. The last Level 2 workshop should not be older than 2 years when receiving the Blessing (details below).
NEW: The Level 2 workshop consists of two parts:
Part 1 – Webinar on the Europe and Middle East (EUME) level. Part 2 – Sub-regional Seminar.
For more details, see below – “Education Overview on the Matching and Blessing”.
NEW: Attending the workshop is a requirement to register on the international matching website.
We will cover the following topics:
- True Parents Lineage and the Meaning of the Blessing,
- Parent-Child Relationship,
- Preparing myself for the Matching,
- Testimonies from Parents and Candidates and more…
Good communication between parents and candidate is central in the matching process, therefore, to attend this workshop together is the best preparation for matching. If both parents and children receive this content together there is a better foundation for discussion and sharing throughout the matching process.
For some parts of this webinar, we will divide into two groups – with some presentations aimed at guidance for parents, while others will focus on guidance for candidates.
Even although this workshop is online, we would ask you to set aside the whole weekend to focus on the content. There will be plenty of breaks, where you can take time to discuss between parents and children, eat meals together and reflect individually.
Invited are: All Blessed Children over 17 years of age, and parents who have a child attending the workshop. Currently, we are only accepting applicants from the Europe and Middle East region.
Level 2 Info: Please keep in mind that the Workshop consists of 2 parts. This is the information of Level 2 part 1. Level 2 part 2 will follow 2 weeks after the workshop in smaller national / sub-regional groups. To receive the certificate, you need to attend part 1&2.

Overview of the Education Requirements for Matching and Blessing:
Please note that each candidate has to complete the necessary education in order to be able to attend the Blessing. Ideally this education should be completed before starting with the Matching Process. It is important to prepare well before beginning the search for a possible partner and this education will help families to approach the matching in a better way.
Target: 14-17 years old Blessed Children
Where: local and community level
When: once a year, depending on the nation
Requirement for the Blessing: No
Description: Focus of education is Pure Lifestyle, how to prepare for the Matching and Blessing, identity of a Blessed Child, Parent Child relationship and providing guidance for parents in the preparation for the Matching.
Level 2 Part 1 (EUME level) + Part 2 (sub-regional level)
Overview Part 1
Target: 17 years and older Where: Education on EUME level When: twice a year
Requirement for the Blessing: Yes
Description: This is the main Workshop in preparation for the Matching and Blessing. The theme of the Workshop is Love, Life, Lineage. It should offer a deeper understanding about the Blessing and help candidates to prepare for the Matching. The workshop is separated into two parts, one part is on the international Europe and Middle East (EUME) level and the second part is on sub-regional level – both parts need to be attended in order to complete the workshop.
Overview Part 2
Target: 17years and older
Where: Education on national or sub-regional level
When: twice a year, shortly after Part 1
Description: The second part of the Level 2 Workshop will be held on the sub-regional level. Since there are fewer participants, it gives the opportunity of sharing in groups and clarifying content from the main workshop.

The Level 2 workshop is valid for 2 years. It is a requirement for the international matching website www.blessing4u.org.
Applying for a Level 2 extension:

Target: Matched Couples who are attending the Blessing
Where: online on EUME level
