Engaging the Personal Shadow

May 12, 2007 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm


What is our personal Shadow? How may we come to know that which is by definition unconscious within us? A series of exercises and questions will help provide greater self-awareness. Our learning objectives will be to explore:

What is meant by the concept of the Shadow?

  • How does the Shadow show up in personal, psychological life?
  • How does the Shadow manifest collectively in social settings?
  • How does one gain a greater awareness of the personal and the collective Shadow?

Please bring a pen and journal for these exercises.
