‘Companioning Our Shadow: Emotions & Relationships’ available via Zoom on Nov. 12

Did you miss the last “Companioning Our Shadow: Emotions & Relationships” course? If so, Michael Simmons is offering this course again via Zoom on Friday, Nov. 12, from 9 to 11 a.m. PST (noon to 2 p.m. EST).

Simmons is a spiritual director and retreat facilitator, and he serves on the leadership team with Companioning Center on the board of Deep Water, a local community that provides tools, processes and sacred spaces for women and men to heal. He is a doctoral student at Portland Seminary and an ordained elder in the Free Methodist Church.

Course info: Psychologist Carl Jung coined the term “shadow” to refer to the parts of ourselves we hide, repress or deny. Robert Bly called the shadow “the long bag we drag behind us.” We place all that would cause us pain and conflict into the bag, but it still holds incredible power to transform our lives, relationships and communities.

This course will be a space to invite Christ to meet our hidden parts and deepen that process of healing. Join Simmons as he explores and practices tools for companioning our shadow, particularly around our emotions and relationships.

The cost for attending the course is $39, and participants can register here.
