Tending Our Futures 2022
with Emma Philbin Bowman, MIAHIP
October 1 - December 3,
Saturday mornings* 9-11am on zoom*
Tending our Futures will appeal to those seeking a deep, textured context in which to freshly sense our own lives. We each have unique sensibilities and specific histories; this course enables us to embrace the wide span of our lives in support of our ripening.
'The digested past is presence…'
Working in a small group with an emphasis on presence and integration, each week focuses on a specific theme: our relationship to fate and destiny, how we embody our regrets and losses, aligning with aging, and deepening our evolutionary capacity and availability to emergent futures. As we move through the course, participants are supported in embracing our past, arriving more fully in our present and supporting our future possibilities, (including our aging and passing). As we share this territory with others, we support one anothers unique ripening.
Many therapists are drawn to this work, and CPD points are available. Link to IAHIP special pricing here: If you have any questions, email Emma by September 24th to arrange a brief consult: firstname.lastname@example.org
Throughout the course, live sessions are complemented by brief, pre-recorded video and audio reflections on Teachable. This course is drawn from her life-long immersion in philosophy, literature, depth psychology and spiritual practice, and from sources as diverse as Leonard Cohen, Christopher Bollas and Thomas Hubl. Emma has a passion for sharing theory in rich, accessible ways, and for the beauty of exploring in small intentional groups.
Voices of Past Participants
‘The themes are resonating strongly with me long after the course has finished. The content was superb.
Emma’s ability to communicate complex concepts and themes in simple language is a gift…’
‘…deeply valuable in relation to where I am currently in my life experience; it raised my awareness of nourishing my future, now…’
Sylvia Rowe, (retired psychotherapist)
‘I loved the content, and the format was perfect; I do feel more open and loving and authentic as a human being since the course. It’s subtle, but there is a gently expanded inner spaciousness…’
One of the most beautiful pieces for me was I knew I had changed by being part of the group & engaging with the themes. It felt like such a gentle process.
A slow gentle change over time that I hardly noticed I was changing, until it was there. It felt like the themes seeped into me as I was held in a very safe space with Emma and the other participants. It really was a beautiful experience and I loved being part of this group. I would highly recommend Emma and this course.
'It’s hard to do justice to the course. To know it is possible to communicate with people from a place of authenticity is grounding, comforting, uplifting, hope inducing and powerful…it has allowed me to seek out this deeper connection with people around me…'
