The true locus of personal transformation is in a contained and secure liminality.”
- Robert Moore, Archetype of Initiation
Personal transformation requires liminal space - space set aside to hear, feel, smell, see, and touch what lies just beneath the waterline of everyday life. The below courses provide such space for individuals to engage their inner work in a contained and secure group space led by shadow work facilitator, Dr. Michael Simmons. Courses are offered through the Companioning Center, a non-profit organization which provides resources for personal and relational healing and wholeness.
Wednesdays, April 10th-May 8th | 9am-11am PST
