If you have spent any time with me in the last ten years you have absolutely heard the words, “the shadow”, come out of my mouth—probably more times than you care to. When I discovered the concept of “the shadow” back in college, it blew my mind wide open. It answered so many questions about who I am, what makes me tick, and what gets in my way. It has meant everything in my quest for true self-knowledge. It has given me access to a level of compassion and empathy that I would have never been able to know without it.
Sometimes when I bring it up in conversation people have this “deer-in-headlights” look on their face as if I am about to ask them to reveal the darkest parts of their being; but that is not how I see the shadow. I love and respect my shadow. It is where all of my power resides. Yes, it is often referred to as “the dark-side”, which gets misinterpreted as “bad” or “evil”. More accurately it relates to what has yet to be illuminated: our blind-spots. By understanding my Shadow I can see into my blind-spots with superhero-vision.
I want you to have this superhero power, too. I want to live in a world where we all do. In that world, everyone is living their Truth. People are honest, present, intimate, compassionate, open, and at peace with themselves.
In October, I am teaming up with the soulful Kaci Florez to lead a workshop Spirit of the Shadow: Seeing Into Your Blind-Spots. In it we will use the shadow to illuminate our blind-spots. I would love for you to join us.
This workshop includes:
3 intentionally small and intimate group gatherings
private coaching call ($100 value)
a self-knowledge tool that you can continue to practice and apply throughout your life
What can this work do for you?
Shadow-work (exploring our blind-spots) makes us:
more open to other people’s quirks and
MUCH MORE light-hearted about the parts of ourselves of which we are so critical.
A commitment to attend all three gatherings is requested.
Saturdays, October 13, 20, and November 3
1:00 – 3:00pm
