Women's Shadow Work Weekend, April 26-28

Private home in West Asheville

Shadow Work® offers an opportunity to look at ourselves through four basic archetypal energies we each carry within. We learn how to use these energies in our lives with intention and focus, to fulfill our purpose and manifest our dreams. Lover Energy allows us to access our emotions, connect with others and pay attention to the wisdom of our body. Warrior Energy teaches us to set boundaries and protect ourselves. This is an important energy to use to access our power. Magician Energy guides us in transforming our perspective and using our intuition and intellect in productive and powerful ways. Sovereign Energy clarifies our passions and visions while supporting us in pursuing these dreams for ourselves, as well as blessing others. Shadow Work® is a personal growth process to bring awareness to the hidden aspects of ourselves, empowering us to use our energy as we choose, with intention and clarity. We bring light to those parts we hide, repress and deny, even our gifts and magnificence. In Shadow Work® we explore the inner landscape and discover the gifts available in our shadow. During this weekend, you’re invited to participate in a variety of processes, creative expressions and meditations to assist you in connecting with your GOLD!

Are there some things you struggle with that seem really easy for other people? Do you have dreams and goals that you aren’t actively pursuing? Do you feel caught in an endless internal conflict; unable to move forward, unable to let go? That conflict is between you and your shadows. Shadows are the parts of ourselves that operate under the radar. They are hidden from our conscious mind, but effect everything we do. Going shadow hunting ALWAYS seems like a TERRIBLE idea. (They are tricky that way.) But if you want your life to be easier, more inspiring, and more joyful, then at some point you need to face what you have locked deep inside yourself. • If positive thinking hasn’t changed your circumstances. • Or… endless self-analysis is just leading you in circles. • Or… you are exhausted from all that self-discipline and hard work. • Or… no matter what you do, your anger, tears, doubt, and loneliness seem to go on forever. • And… Your ready to do something about it, even if it’s scary.
