Befriending Your Negative Shadow




2 Days

About the Course

Befriending your negative shadow is everyone's calling in life. Undertaking such a task can feel scary and at times feel very difficult in knowing exactly how to begin the work. Perhaps, it is equally understandable why so many of us disown our negative shadow and instead project it daily onto others (an easy way out). Our negative shadow is in many ways an insoluble energy in need of expression, validity. Hence why doing something 'creative' with our negative shadow is both essential to bring something good into the world and at same time to the befriending. This of course is another journey in life.

In this two-day walking course (with the use of a drone) we will explore the deeper reality of your negative shadow through the immediate interaction of the natural landscape.
