Wednesday, April 8, 7pm, Richmond Beach Congregational Church UCC, 1512 NW 195th Shoreline

Join Richmond Beach Congregational Church, UCC for an evening of learning about how to walk with those in need.  Kae Eaton, of the Mental Health Chaplaincy, will lead us in becoming companions. The training will be on Wednesday, April 8th, at 7pm at Richmond Beach Congregational Church, UCC. We hope that this training will help all of us grow in our ability to walk with those living at the encampment currently located at RBCC, as well as others in need in our community.

Companionship training is designed to facilitate compassionate awareness and support for those struggling within our neighborhoods as well as in communities of faith through ministries of hospitality and outreach such as meals, shelter or hygiene programs. The model of Companionship develops skills to listen consciously, with openness and compassion, along with appropriate awareness of limitations and boundaries, in order to ease the isolation that life difficulties can bring.

Kae Eaton earned her Masters in Theology, Spiritual Direction and Counseling Psychology from the Seattle School of Theology and Psychology. Her work with the Mental Health Chaplaincy focuses on training people and groups in the Companionship Model for use in a variety of settings both secular and faith-based. Through outreach programs and pastoral care programs she works with individuals, families, pastors, and meal, shelter, and hygiene programs to support those struggling with the isolating issues of mental, emotional or circumstantial difficulties.
