SPACE IS LIMITED. Each workshop will be closed once seats are filled.
This is a GROUP EXERCISE. For one-on-one shadow work sessions, contact Alchemist Marie via the contact form for information.
This workshop will take place via video chat on Zoom with five participants and three facilitators. Following initial instruction and Q&A, each participant will walk through one instance of integration with the facilitators, lasting about 20 minutes for each participant.
Facilitators will hold space for you during the integration, prompt you through the process, and assist you in healing following the integration process.
You will also receive a copy of the recording of the session upon completion of the workshop.
All information discussed in the workshop is confidential and each participant enters under the agreement of conducting themselves with respect, integrity, and compassion for all attending. Any personal vulnerabilities or details discussed during the workshop are not to be shared with outside parties.
Please allow two hours for your workshop experience. You are welcome to stay for the entirety, but may also leave after your shadow work session is complete.
Session dates are booked on a first-come, first-served basis and seats are limited. Once booked, your session date cannot be changed. Please arrive for your workshop ten minutes early. The session will be locked once the process is explained and participants are ready to begin individual work. No refunds will be given for participants who do not show for their scheduled workshop.
The goal of this workshop is to provide you with the basic tools to do your own ongoing shadow work. Due to limited time and the group aspect of this workshop, Alchemist Marie will consult with your guides and higher self to help you identify a shadow aspect you are ready to integrate, that is in your best interest, and can be processed in the time allowed.
Why Shadow Work?
Becoming self aware of both your light and dark aspects provides freedom to fully manifest the person you decide to be in each and every moment. Only by embracing the parts of ourselves we’ve previously boxed and locked away as “unacceptable” can we live our truths fully and authentically.
Ignoring one or more parts of ourselves prevents us from healing those parts. We keep them locked away, pushed far from our individual realities (or so we think), and they gather energy as we feed them with other negative emotions we find “unacceptable”.
This allows these shadow parts to fester, unhealed, as they seep into our personal realities no matter how hard we try to keep them boxed away and compartmentalized.
One you learn to see these once unacceptable parts of yourself without judgment as a natural result of your humanity, you can then choose to heal the wound the separation creates, integrate those parts of yourself back into the whole, and then decide if you’d like to keep or change those aspects of yourself.
“In spite of its function as a reservoir for human darkness—or perhaps because of this—the shadow is the seat of creativity so that for some, it may be, “the dark side of his being, his sinister shadow… represents the true spirit of life as against the arid scholar” said Kaufman. This explains why we tend to manifest important aspects of our realities based on our nonintegrated shadow parts. As hard as we try to live the “love and light” lifestyle, our shadow selves manifest negative aspects into our lives from our unconscious minds as a “cry for help” to draw our attention to the parts that still remain unhealed.
We all have shadow aspects and shadow work is an ongoing process that lasts a lifetime. It is not so much a destination goal as it is a process that enriches your life and provides an ongoing source of healing, inspiration, and insight into ourselves and others.
As we each work through our own personal shadow work, we are moving trapped energy for ourselves, and for the collective, allowing healing to take place where previously blocked.
This is the true beauty of embracing shadow work.
