Although I have done a lot of personal development work, emotional and spiritual, I wasn’t quite able to touch base and relate my self-destructive behaviour with a particular deep old issue I was aware of. Shadow Work has helped me to access the root of this behaviour in an extremely safe and supporting environment. I admire the way you work together, YING and YANG and I have great respect for you both.
The more I do Shadow Work the more I get out of it because I am more aware of the way the energies work and I have experienced that I can trust in the container, I dare to reveal more of my feelings and emotions and probably have already made some steps in acknowledging my shadows and look at them, lost some fears.

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.
