    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.
