Jung spoke of archetypes that were reflections of our parts. One such archetype was the shadow self. This shadow self is also reflected in many gods and goddesses as well as other mythological figures throughout times and across a large variety of cultures. However, because it is linked to darkness and shadow, it is often misinterpreted as evil. However, it is not.
The dark part of ourselves is that which is often rejected by our own society. It is those needs, feelings and thoughts that are often not deemed acceptable by the world we live in. These can be guilt, sadness, grief, anger, wildness, sensuality and much more. Without our shadow selves, we are incomplete. We are only healing half of ourselves.
Part of what I do is connect you to this dark self and teach you about the importance of honoring and loving it. Together we go into the underworld of your inner self and find what pieces may have been left behind as well as leave behind what no longer serves you. It is the place where bindings are cut and where we take back the shadow self that we once spurned in order to become whole.
I will be holding workshops on shadow work when COVID 19 concerns have been dealt with. It is transformative and deep work that can be both freeing and very energy intensive.
