Growing Up, Cleaning Up, Waking Up
Psychological shadow is a phenomenon no human can escape, even the most advanced practitioners. A spiritual aspirant or teacher who does not have a functioning shadow practice will eventually crash, hard. Shadow is a hidden part of our awareness where the most potent aspects of our human selves hide. Shadow hides both our brightest light and gifts, and our dark pain. Because it is hidden, it is tricky to find. This course will offer a pioneering approach integrating ancient wisdom techniques with modern psychological science to lovingly find, work with and heal the wounded internal parts of our selves.
We will also explore how shadow generally arises along the evolutionary path of human growth and awakening. Come balance your waking up practices with cleaning up and growing up practices: in safe, confidential, small-group space.
