Description

THE PATH TO FREEDOM.....

Shadow.. has a bad reputation and for good reason! It can wreak havoc with our health, our relationships, with our careers and keep us stuck in old patterns of behaviour that seem inappropriate and yet hard to change.

It's the hidden side of our psyches, with both its positive and negative aspects.

It’s the part of us that has been banished, mostly lives in the dark, and doesn’t come out much, except when we least expect it, and mostly when we are least able to control it!! Then we can feel as if something else has taken over our lives, someone else has taken over the steering wheel and is now driving our bus… and we cant be sure where it will end up!!

Scared and pushed out of sight, where we imagine that no one can see it, our Shadow is waiting to be honoured, set free, brought into the light where it can truly serve us, rather than keep us small, hidden and protected or defended from our true identity.

If you can name it - it actually isn't shadow.. and that's the problem.. how can we embrace that which we cannot name or cannot see within ourselves? And yet in order for us to be whole... and to work with integrity with others .. we have to know that which we cannot name, and be willing to see that which we are unwilling to see otherwise we project these aspects onto others and onto our world - that way someone else will hold for us what we aren't willing to own within ourselves!

And yet, shadow has a golden side, as well as a dark side.. and when we disown one, we disown both.. and end up living a half life, our unlived life living elsewhere... in a fantasy, in a place outside of us where it's probably safer. Whether it's our dark shadow or our golden shadow.. we cannot be authentic when parts of us are hidden, denied or disowned. When we do, we are in danger of making ourselves small and hidden, or larger than life and full of fantastical ideas.. neither of which is helpful to our relationships, our careers, or our world.

It takes a lot of energy to keep our Shadow Self hidden, that’s how we end up with chronic fatigue/auto immune diseases and other debilitating illnesses. If we don’t hide it within and harm ourselves, we will most certainly give it to someone else to hold for us .. just so we can see it.. and mostly we find that those are the people who push our buttons and drive us crazy! Either way, this is what creates conflict in our lives, and is a BIG distraction from what we are here to do.

We want to get to know all these orphaned parts of our selves so that we can hold our power lightly in the world. The way to world peace is through acceptance of our differences – if we can accept the parts of us that we have come to fear, mistrust or hate, then we can find peace in our hearts and we will be a true and lasting force for change in the world.

In addition to all these benefits, shadow work releases us from the grip of our ‘gremlins’; the parts of us that fear change and want us to stay small and insignificant. Its an opportunity to reach out beyond our limitations and embrace fully the potential that lives within each of us.

This is an experiential, lively and powerful weekend where we dive together into our Shadows help them to find a place in our lives, and return with nuggets of gold: OUR true gold. We will bring home our light and release our uniqueness, our creativity, our imagination, and our courage onto the waiting world.

Shadow Work is holy work, it's the work of the Heart Warrior.... The path to freedom...

Here's a testimonial for this workshop.. .in case you wondered how it would benefit you!

"This changed my life last year so deeply. I met a part of me that had literally been stalking me my whole life, the minute I saw it, really saw it, everything shifted. The work we do here is totally sacred and really well held. It is a truly safe place to dive deep into your self. When you do this you really take a step into understanding the power of this beautiful Medicine. I know for me that shadow work is a daily practice but this workshop gave me the tools to do this and to assist in my projections and to understand why they were there. I stopped fighting my mind and thoughts and learnt to accept and love them and hold them differently.

I really recommend this course. I am always drawn back by Jung who said "in the cave you fear to enter lies the gold you seek" you truly find your gold over this weekend and face your fears in a safe and totally held space. It's beautiful. " Samara Jacobs
