This workshop offers a fresh approach to inner conflict through revealing the potential of shadows and meeting powerful resources. Whatsoever blocks one’s energy, emotions, beliefs, thoughts and addictions, is what is referred to as shadows. They are parts of oneself that are split off, disowned and battled against. The process of meeting and befriending shadows is a method for bringing them into consciousness and accessing the treasures they hold rather than repressing them. If the shadow is not made conscious and integrated, it operates undercover, becoming the saboteur of one‘s best intentions. Bringing the shadow into awareness reduces its destructive power and releases the life energy stored in it. Befriending that which has always been avoided the most, brings about a discovery of a deep inner wisdom and presence within.
In this workshop a safe space will be created to explore, express and give form to these forces through gentle inner work and meditations. Creativity, dance and movement explorations help to root the experience and allow a remaining integration in the body. Feeling is healing. Discovering one‘s felt sense and deepening awareness in the body is an essential part of this nurturing path.
This process is profound and transformative as well as playful and creative while providing tools that each participant can take away and practice after the workshop.
The program consists of two mornings from 7 am – 9 am in preparation for the full-day workshop on the third day.
