How to Live With A Prickly Porcupine: Letting The Difficult Person Heal Us – November 10-12, 2017

Each of us often rub shoulders with a porcupine, a difficult person we wish lived in Antarctica:  the pessimist who believes every silver lining has a cloud, the passive aggressive (the dog who licks your hand before biting it), the depressive who depresses us, and the others that we thank God we are not married to.  We will explore the 2 hands that heal us:  the right hand that sets boundaries so we can care for ourselves and find inner peace and the left hand that reaches out to create peace without becoming another prickly porcupine that blames or tries to fix another.  Even if the difficult person never changes, that person becomes a source of new life and healing for us.

Father Matthew Linn, S.J. has focused on integrating physical, emotional, and spiritual healing.  He currently lives in a Jesuit community in Minneapolis where he trains spiritual directors at Sacred Ground.  Member of the Association of Christian Therapists, with graduate degrees in sociology, anthropology, spirituality, and theology, Matt Linn, S.J.
