Whether through bad habits, negative thought patterns, or counterproductive behaviors, we all have a 'shadow' that sabotages us at times.

This unique experiential course will teach key concepts and skills for exploring our shadows through analyzing emotions and addressing the impact of formative experiences on our operating beliefs and behaviors. We will gain a higher level of self-awareness and begin the process of troubleshooting deep-seated obstacles to success and happiness.

Issues that can be explored include:

  • Anxiety
  • Loneliness
  • Stress
  • Procrastination
  • Overcommitment
  • Relationship challenges

 

Concepts and skills taught include:

  • Emotional literacy and awareness
  • An archetypal understanding of the mind derived from the work of Carl Jung and others
  • Creating a shared environment of trust, vulnerability, authenticity and love
  • Identifying underlying beliefs that drive counterproductive behaviors
  • Identifying formative experiences that led to these beliefs

 

You must register for the sessions you will attend. We have 10 spots per session. You will be placed on a wait-list if registration for a session is full.

Timeliness: Due to the personal nature of the course, the door will close at 10 minutes past the hour. No one will be admitted to the day’s session after that point, although you are welcome to attend future meetings.
