– Support Group

Discovering your Shadow allows you to find the wholeness you do not allow yourself to have. Knowing your Shadow helps you to access and integrate hidden strengths and gifts you carry hidden inside. Have no doubt these Shadows are completely hidden and the only way you discover them is by being upset with or admiring others. Working with your Shadow helps you find the meaning in the disturbances in your life and then transform them in to knowing yourself and having more compassion for yourself and others.

Based on the work of Ken Wilber’s Integral 3-2-1 process and Debbie Ford’s book “The Dark Side of The Light Chasers,” we will study how our Shadow helps us become who we are and holds the gifts to transform our lives. Each week in this small group setting we will have the opportunity to explore what is disturbing us and discover the gift these disturbances hold for living our life. This is a safe, open, non-judgmental space to experience together this process.

The Shadow is a term coined by the psychologist Carl Jung to explain the parts of us that we keep hidden from ourselves. These are the parts that we determined were not acceptable and so we buried them deep in our subconscious so we could be the opposite, the person we think is acceptable and good and we are proud to be. This can lock up our soul and keep us from living to our full potential.

Discovering your shadows and the gifts they have for you is probably the most freeing experience you can have. Imagine trying to hold a beach ball under water, how much energy that takes and when it gets loose it pops up and hits you in the face. This is how your Shadow works, it is always there trying to give you the balance your life needs and pops up to hit you until you finely get the message your life needs.

This study group helps you discover the beauty and gifts in your Shadow and to accept and welcome them into your life. This is about finding peace and freeing energy you have been wasting holding yourself down. It is not that you will become the terrible shadow you are hiding but that by knowing and accepting it is a part of you, you will be more accepting and compassionate with yourself and all the people in your life.
