    Embracing the Shadow

    The Shadow is the part of us that is made up of all that we hide from others. It hides our shame, our fears and our wounds. It also hides our divine spirit, our blinding beauty and our hidden talents.

    It is a huge source of power and creativity but until we bring it into the light this power will remain untapped and our full potential unreached.

    Using practical “how to” exercises sourced from Tibetan Buddhism, western psychology, Mexican shamanism, and of course dream work & lucid dreaming Charlie Morley takes us on an immersive journey deep into the dazzling darkness of spiritual transformation.

    Using Tibetan Buddhist meditations, dream work, mask and mirror practice, eye gazing, creative writing and lots more the workshop explores how to:

     • Meet, befriend and transform the shadow
    • Integrate the sexual, ancestral and golden shadows
    • Use lucid dreaming to embrace the shadow
    • Move from shame to authenticity
    • Drop the mask and step into your gold

    Based upon Charlie’ brand new book Dreaming Through Darkness this workshop will show you how to fearlessly embrace your shadow side with compassionate acceptance and manifest the awakened power of your full potential.

    The Masks That We Wear

    Tear off the Mask - Rumi

    Not only do we project our shadow onto others, we also project how we want to be seen by others. This is how we create our persona: the mask that we wear.

    The mask of our persona is indicative not only of the self-image that we present to others but also of what we hide from them. And as long as we keep hiding behind the mask of who we think we should be, we will never be free.

    Intergrating the Shadow

    Most of us put all our energy into avoiding admitting that we have any seemingly shameful shadow traits. We daren’t enter into the vulnerability of the human condition. This leads to a constricted, shame-based sense of who we think we are, which in turn makes it impossible to progress on the spiritual path. To embrace the shadow is to drop the mask and reveal our true face to the world.

    Dreaming through DarknessWhen considering shadow integration, the pioneer of Archetypal Psychology, James Hillman, thought of it as a problem of love and asked us to contemplate: ‘How far can our love extend to the broken and ruined parts of ourselves, the disgusting and perverse?’ We have a choice: to keep letting shame make us feel unworthy of love or to consciously witness, and perhaps even reveal, our shame with compassion.

    To really make progress, we have to do something that may seem quite paradoxical: we have to accept the parts of ourselves that we dare not show and learn to love our Magnificent Messiness.

    Snow in the Street London

    Arranged by Marcus and given a magical new feeling, this is a collection of some of their best known carols and some little known traditional Christmas songs; plus a couple of original numbers.

    They have taken the carols we know and love, plus some we may not be quite so familiar with infused them with a resonance and beauty that only Lucinda’s voice can bring. The arrangements by consummate producer Marcus Cliffe highlight the melodies and really compliment Lucinda’s unique interpretations.

    • See Amid the Winters Snow
    • Oh Little Town Of Bethlehem
    • Silent Night

    The Magic of Christmas

    Lucinda and Marcus both love Christmas and these songs mean a lot to them. Lucinda says that they remind her of family times; being with people she loves, lighting the fire, sledging when we are lucky enough to have snow, eating too much and walking to Midnight mass in Cornwall to sing and remember the birth of Christ.

    Black and White Fireplace

    So, come and have some quiet respite time before the madness of shopping and planning and cooking takes over. Let us be together and remember the real spirit of Christmas and what real giving is all about.

    Sacred Spaces

    With Love from Lucinda

    Lucinda with Dragonfly NecklaceI’ve always been a huge fan of Christmas and have been promising to produce a Christmas album for years!

    I began creating this album after finding some traditional carols in an old book given to me by a fan and I starting writing some new melodies. Marcus and I also brought our own flavour and arrangements to the better-known carols and it works really well. I can’t wait to sing them LIVE!

    Get ready for the Christmas season with music that will move you and inspire you. Merry Christmas All.”

    With love from Lucinda. x
