The shadow is the hidden side of us, the parts mainly considered unacceptable, ugly, undesirable; the traits we reject, repress and ultimately project onto others. Shadow aspects can however be positive also. Carl Jung believed “healers” could only effectively help others after performing shadow work on the self. Whether that is true, or not, exploring one’s shadow leads to better understanding of the self and one’s interactions with others in the world. Regular work in this area can rapidly produce great emotional changes leading to an expanded sense of self-awareness, self-compassion and overall empathy towards others.
This is for anyone who wishes to develop greater compassion and healthier relationships.
While many people are interested in the meaning of their dreams, dreams can be much more useful than most people realize. The objective of the presentation is to illustrate that our personal powers and natural abilities extend well beyond our waking moments.
This presentation will focus on:
– Remembering and controlling your dreams
– Expanding your creativity and knowledge in life or business
– Applying this knowledge
