What would you really like to have happen in your life? What gets in the way? What patterns keep repeating themselves causing pain, frustration and lack of freedom?
Shadow Work is a way of supporting the exploration of these underlying patterns and can bring resolution, increased freedom and deep healing. As we grow, our conditions impact us in so many complex ways. Certain behaviours and emotions may be unwelcome in our culture or family of origin and we learn to repress or deny important parts of ourselves in order to fit in or simply to survive.
We may experience painful or traumatic life events and disconnective experiences that close our hearts and make it feel really risky to open to love or trust. We may lose our connection to our full range of emotions, our sadness, joy, loss and healthy anger. We may struggle to create powerful boundaries and make our dreams manifest. We may have a harsh inner critic that disables us and causes us pain. We may shame ourselves viciously.
From the perspective of Shadow Work it is understood that our power, life force and energy can get hidden within, bound up with these repressed parts of ourselves. Shadow Work offers a place to explore our inner life in a respectful way that truly welcomes all that we bring. Being held in a way that allows everything to have a place can have a deep effect on integrating our inner life and finding more peace.
Trauma can be released, resolutions found and situations reframed. We are invited to explore and discover parts of ourselves we may have hidden, denied or repressed.
By bringing these parts out of shadow in a safe, experiential setting, we can unlock the power of our true selves, with all our gifts and strengths. We use archetypes to help us to understand parts of ourselves and why certain things may flow or feel blocked for us.
Following Shadow Work, people often feel more able to feel good about parts of themselves that they have previously felt negative about. It is a compassionate and shame-free approach, reclaiming power and energy that has been locked in unconscious inner dynamics.
Shadow works offers us the opportunity to:
- Increase ability to make powerful choices and find our inner ability to love ourselves and others unconditionally (Sovereign)
- Develop new solutions for old problems and understand persistent patterns (Magician)
- Deepen our capacity for intimacy and activate our creative talents (Lover)
- Improve our ability to set boundaries, develop our ability to take action in our lives and follow through on our ideas and projects.(Warrior)
