The whole purpose of the Science of Mind is to reconcile the apparent separation of the spiritual world, which must be Perfect, with the material world, which appears imperfect.
–Ernest Holmes
If you are someone who has ever felt challenged in reconciling the idea that God is all there is while observing situations and people that seem anything but; if you struggle with the ideas of limitation in an abundant Universe, suffering in a compassionate Universe, and evil in a Universe of Good, this workshop is for you.

We tend to seek pleasurable and joyful experiences and people while pushing against and turning away from that which frightens us and brings us pain. Yet, the external world serves primarily as mirror supporting our wholeness. The discomfort we feel is not so much the problem as it is the invitation. Only by turning our attention inward will we begin to find the source of discomfort that the world is simply illuminating for us.

In this workshop, we are going to engage with that “which appears imperfect.” We’ll look at how it shows up in the world and the manner in which the world serves as a mirror of that which we have yet to acknowledge and address within ourselves. We will shine the light into the darkness…into the shadow.

In having the courage to acknowledge, integrate, and even embrace the shadow, we will find treasures; we will find gifts; we will deepen in our understanding—and experience—of what it means to be Whole.

Filling the conscious mind with ideal conceptions is a characteristic of Western theosophy, but not the confrontation with the shadow and the world of darkness. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.
–Carl Jung


Simon Shadowlight
Special Focus Minister

Simon was initiated into the name "Shadowlight" over 35 years ago as part of a deepening awareness of acknowledging both the positive qualities we aspire to and those we have yet to recognize and claim. One of his greatest joys in ministry is to help students face those aspects of self that have been disowned or denied and to find the gift that has been there all along.
