Prerequisite: Although this is an introductory course, it is not a class for beginners. This work is recommended for students who are already on a spiritual path of self-knowledge, self-responsibility, and self-awareness.
Embrace your shadow and release your creative power! Are you fighting a battle with resistance? Do you see negative patterns or behaviors repeating in your external world? Is there something in your life that feels like it's not flowing — a sense of stifled potential or stagnant energy? These are all signs that the lower self is taking control

In this workshop we will examine how the lower self is created, how it functions, and how it sabotages us. We will look into the "negative" emotions we've repressed, the unwanted parts of our self that we've hidden from our conscious mind, and the ways we disguise ourselves to appeal to others. By opening to our shadow, and embracing our wholeness, we can reclaim the energy and creative power that's lost in this vicious cycle. It's not easy work, but it's a worthwhile curriculum.
If you're willing to explore these hidden parts of yourself with curiosity and compassion, then join me, and special guest Natalie Roy, for an introduction to shadow work.
