Shining the Light in the Dark: Finding the treasure buried in the shadow [4-Week Series] @ Shakti in the Mountains
Oct 15 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

One of the biggest reasons women give for not making time for themselves is guilt. Guilt that they are letting someone down. Guilt that important things won’t get done unless they do them. Guilt that they chose themselves over a loved one.

Guilt is a tool used to manipulate folks into doing something other than what they want. Is that how you want to be motivated? Is that how you want to be controlled?

My guess is no. It is not how you want to live your life. My guess is you would rather make choices based on what is in your and your loved one’s best interests. My guess is you would rather not feel guilty at all.

I’ll let you in on a little secret. A life without guilt is possible but it requires two things:

1. You take full responsibility for the decisions you make.
2. You choose to put yourself first.

Right about now you may be saying to yourself:

“How am I supposed to do that? Put myself first, yeah right. What kind of mother/wife/partner/friend/daughter/colleague would I be if I did that?”

Well, there is only one way to find out. Isn’t there? To find out exactly what kind of person you would be, if you put yourself first, is to do it and see what happens.

My guess is a lot of fears will come up. Fears about what kind of person you REALLY are. I want you to know that these fears are normal to have and possible to allay.

These fears, in psychological terms, are called the Shadow because we regulate them to the dark and like to pretend they don’t exist. And they are no less real just because we pretend they are not.

Shadow work liberates us from the chains of guilt and is a sign to explore unexamined fear. And, Shadow work is best done in community. Realizing that you are not alone, receiving non-judgmental support and having folks to celebrate your wins makes overcoming these fears SO much easier.

This four-week class is an opportunity to explore what you fear, to understand the needs that drive those fears and to recover the parts of yourself that were regulated to the dark.

I want to create a tightly woven cocoon in which this big work can happen. I want the women who come to feel held and supported as they throw off the chains of guilt and self-degradation.

If you are ready, then reserve your spot by clicking on the registration link below. The class will begin on October 15 and no late registrations will be accepted after we begin.
