Stage 4: Preparing

This stage covers preparation of the final materials for your Offering, including handouts, binders, workbooks, PowerPoint slides, props, participant supplies, reference materials, media, assessments and feedback forms, and a finalized version of your script. Though this is a highly detailed stage, once again it’s a time to connect with your Higher Guidance and Spirit’s Inspiration! This is also the stage for completing your arrangements with the venue, with anyone providing audio/visual (A/V) and tech support (especially if it’s a virtual Offering), and with your assisting team. Lastly, this stage focuses on your own inner and outer preparation to facilitate. In this stage, you rehearse your raps (educational content), as well as run through each process and activity to ensure its timing and effectiveness.
