I have experienced many forms of “talking therapy” since working in this arena, all of which are extremely valuable. But this Shadow Work Seminar was beyond words. Since participating in this weekend I feel I am moving through my life with grace and compassion instead of being critically conscious of every step. Not only has this transformation impacted me on a personal level but it has also had a profound effect on my work.
John and Nicola provided a safe space where I could explore a deep and extremely personal issue in a way that gave me a sense of real release. Having previously immersed myself in psychotherapy and NLP for many years, I have found this to be a powerful technique, which gets to the heart of matters quickly and congruently – delivered by very dedicated, skilled people. I highly recommend it for those looking to acknowledge past wounds or wanting more out of life.
For me, Shadow Work was transformational, empowering, liberating and the best present I gave to myself. I am now ready to achieve my highest potential.
