"To confront a person with his own shadow is to show him his own light." ~Carl Jung
Carl Jung helped to illuminate and acknowledge the shadow, which is alive and well in all of us. Jung mentions throughout his life's work that dealing with our shadow is a daily quest. As we awaken to this aspect of self, we are asked to recognize the 'compartments' of self that have been muted because we haven't had the tools to accept these parts of self. We find it easier to project our darkness onto others.
If you are longing to embrace the shadow parts of self, then do so in an environment that supports and honors your growth. Shame and guilt are kindred companions that keep the darkness from knowing the light.
As you shift your awareness from the light to the dark, you begin to awaken to the duality of living. It is through the path of awakening that you realize the light needs the dark to fully appreciate the shadows of being alive.
"When it's about me I can change it. If you want to have a life worth living, you can't chase happiness and avoid aversion." ~Shelly Kwiatkouski aka 'Uma'
The 300 hour Spiritual Evolution program allows you to embrace the shadow and do your work as a teacher. As a teacher of this ancient practice, it becomes your responsibility to view this work as an opportunity for personal growth. The more 'awake' and 'aware' you are, the more present you can be for your students. Aren't you longing to really really really show up for your life?
How does the shadow emerge in your life? Are you quick to judge others? Do you run to spiritual practices to distract yourself? Can you own that others are in therapy because of you?
During this 300 hour Spiritual Evolution program, be prepared to have 'all of you' show up! No labels, just love people! Love for the shadow that has gotten you to this point in your life that you are ready to transform and transcend. Give yourself a big hug, because there is no exclusion....love for all parts of self! There's no candy coating, no sugar plum fairies, no rocks to hide under...be prepared to get spiritually real!
If you are ready to reveal your shadow, then know that the light is close to follow. My 300 Spiritual Evolution training is based on acknowledging the shadow and being a mindful explorer of its presence in your life. The 300 hour Spiritual Evolution program offers you multiple experiences to practically acknowledge the presence of the shadow in your life. Through various activities you will come to know and love this part of self. If you have been willing to live in the darkness, don't you think it's time to step into the light? Come and join us for this life changing event! firstname.lastname@example.org
