An article called Me and My Shadow by Sally Kempton
Whenever there were situations in my life (for the last 10 years) where I felt stuck – because I needed to make a decision, I felt trapped or confused - Shadow Work always helped me gain clarity, sort out my priorities, solved the hidden issues underground, so that I walked away with a renewed sense of direction, recharged batteries, wounds healed and the awareness that others were struggling but overcoming too. And each time I could and did move forwards in my life – more alive than beforehand!
After many years of spiritual and self-development work I realised that I still held a chore of anxiety that nothing had quite touched or erased. In the SW Workshop I was able to access the root of this and make the energetic shift, which has realigned my perspective on life. It is now six months since the workshop and I have noticed many positive changes in my feeling responses to situations.

A major experience of my life which accessed a part of me that a succession of therapies failed to reach. I feel lighter, happier and more at peace than I have ever felt.
