by taking The Shadow Process Workshop
Reclaiming Your Power, Creativity,
Brilliance & Dreams
The saintly and the sinister, the
courageous and the cowardlyall these
aspects lie dormant in us and will
act out if they are not recognized and
integrated into our psyches. But many
of us are frightened to look within;
fear has put up walls so thick we
no longer remember who we really are
This workshop is about working through
those walls and looking, maybe for
the first time, at our full range
of human emotions.
During the weekend, we see how we
hide and deny our dark sides,
rejecting these aspects of our true
nature rather than giving ourselves
the freedom to live authentically.
Debbie Ford's three-step process for releasing toxic emotions and making
peace with our past includes the use
of guided imagery, active meditation
and dynamic interactive dialogue.
Through active participation in
this process, we learn that it is
possible to acknowledge and accept
our so-called weaknesses, and that,
in fact, these qualities may prove
to be important, hidden strengths.
Perhaps a touch of "laziness" is just
what the workaholic needs; perhaps
some judicious "selfishness" can save
us from exhaustion and resentment.
Ford shows us that when we bring the
shadow into light, we can tap into
its energy and reclaim our power, creativity, and dreams.
