EMBRACING YOUR SHADOW SIDE Oct. 20th — 7pm – 9:15 —Cost is $25
“You must go into the dark in order to bring forth your light. When we suppress any feeling or impulse, we are also suppressing its polar opposite. If we deny our ugliness, we lessen our beauty. If we deny our fear, we minimize our courage. If we deny our greed, we also reduce our generosity. Our full magnitude is more than most of us can ever imagine.”–Debbie Ford
You have only one self. It is the real you. It is beyond good and evil. The Collective Shadow is what makes up all of us. We will examine this principle and discuss ways of bringing light and balance to the shadow side of ourselves. Understanding this part of us is one of the most beneficial ways for us to grow and learn. Understand how – consciously or unconsciously – we hide and deny our dark sides, rejecting these aspects of our true natures rather than giving ourselves the freedom to live authentically. Learn how to acknowledge and accept our so-called weaknesses – and how these qualities may prove to be important, hidden strengths. Making peace with our dark side is a sacred journey. Embracing our shadow delivers us emotional wholeness and the absolute freedom to be who we are.
