How is Shadow Work Done ?

Begin to understand how Shadow Work is done and how it might be useful to you




Firstly, you may choose to attend a Shadow Work Seminar, where you can work in a group with other people who have come to examine their shadows together. Here, you can share the path with others who will help motivate you with acceptance and encouragement. You may choose to learn from watching how others process their shadows. When you see others finding the courage hidden within their fear, or the power in their anger, you may be able to apply that learning directly to your own situation.

 Or, secondly, you may choose to experience Shadow Work in a coaching context. You may prefer the privacy of working one-on-one with a Certified Shadow Work Coach, where you can be coached over the phone, or choose from sessions lasting from several hours to several days.
