JOURNEYING THE SPACES BETWEEN
A Study and Process Group
With Judith Schmidt, PhD.
Journeying in wilderness spaces between a familiar identity dissolving and new being not yet glimpsed, or glimpsed and filling us with both hope and the dread of moving ahead. This is the way we grow into who we are called to be.
This group is for those who have or are now living in the spaces between the old and not yet born: perhaps in illness, grief, aging, retirement, separation/divorce, empty nesting, whatever life transition you find yourself in, or if you wish to gain understanding and skill to help clients in transition.
While liminal passages often confront us with the challenge of things fallingapart, these times are intensified if we have suffered early relational or shock trauma. Old wounds may call: ‘you cannot go forward until you bring healing to us in the past’. And so we are called by wounds of our past as we journey toward an unknown future, for the sake of growing toward wholeness.
In this group, we shall share and process personally as well as present clients who are moving through liminal life spaces.
We will discuss relevant psychological and spiritual readings. Since I have a deep interest in Waking Dream Therapy, we shall experience receiving direction from the Sources of Creation that live in our deepest selves beyond any linear understanding or personal history. To begin with, you may wish to read Ann Ulanov: Finding Space.
This group is open to CIL graduates and to other qualified people and will be limited to no more than 8 participants. If you are interested, please email me and we can set a time to talk on the phone.
We will meet monthly on Friday afternoons from 2:00 to 5:00 pm. We may choose to have an occasional full day retreat in lieu of some of our monthly meetings.
