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 Cosmic Blessing. It is designed to support all candidates and parents who are preparing for the matching, and also those already matched who are getting ready to go to the Blessing.
The Certificate of Attendance of a Level 2 workshop should not be older than 2 years when receiving the Cosmic Blessing. This is the last Level 2 Workshop before the Cosmic Blessing on 7th of May 23. Please find more details at the registration for the Blessing in May here.
NEW: The Level 2 workshop consists of two parts:
Part 1 – Webinar on the Europe and Middle East (EUME) level. (3&4 and 10&11 February 23)
Part 2 – National or Sub-regional Seminar. (dates tba)
For more details, see – “Education overview on the Matching and Blessing”.
NEW: Attending the workshop is a requirement to register on the international matching website blessing4U.org
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 the 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.
Although this workshop is online, we would ask you to set aside the whole time 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.

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 2nd plus Gen
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 2nd plus Gen, Parent-Child relationship and providing guidance for parents in the preparation for the Matching.
Level 2 Part 1 (EUME level) + Part 2 (national / sub-regional level)
Overview Part 1
Target: 17 years and older, 2nd plus Gen and Parents
Where: Education on EUME level
When: twice a year (winter and autumn)
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 divided into two parts, one part is on the international Europe and Middle East (EUME) level and the second part is on the sub-regional level – both parts need to be attended in order to complete the workshop and receive a Certificate of Attendance.
Overview Part 2

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.
Validation of the Level 2 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
When: shortly before a Cosmic Blessing
Description: This is a new workshop that we offer online for matched couples before a Cosmic Blessing. We see the necessity of providing certain additional education before the Blessing and to offer the candidates a platform for questions and answers.
