Embracing your Shadow Side
Dr. Zepp will be hosting a 10-week workshop beginning Wednesday March 24th, 2021.
By far the most powerful healing I have done in my own life has been working with my shadows. The concept of shadow work is one that was popularized by Carl Jung, one of the most well-known psychologists that has lived. This work has to do with reclaiming all aspects of our psyches that have been suppressed, repressed and hidden by our unconscious minds in an attempt to disidentify with them.
When we fracture parts of ourselves, we are subject to personal self-sabotage, usually unconsciously. Exploring our shadow will lead to greater authenticity, creativity, energy, and personal awakening.
This group workshop takes you step by step through the life changing book by Debbie Ford: The Dark Side of the Light Chasers: Reclaiming your power, creativity, brilliance and dreams. In this #1 New York Times best-seller, and truly the most useful resource I have used in doing my own shadow work, Debbie examines the fascinating process of projection – whereby we transfer our own unwanted qualities onto others – and demonstrates how our darkest tendencies, when embraced, can be used to fuel our dreams. You may literally feel your shoulders and your anxiety level drop after doing the transformational exercises at the end of each chapter. Take this courageous journey into your shadow side and find the key to total self-acceptance.
In this workshop you will learn 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. We will discover that it is possible to acknowledge and accept our so-called weaknesses – and that in fact, these qualities may prove to be important, hidden strengths. Perhaps a touch of “laziness” is just what the workaholic needs; perhaps some judicious “selfishness” can save us from exhaustion and resentment. Through the illuminating stories and practical exercises in this book, Debbie Ford shows us how to reconcile our darker impulses, find the gifts they offer – and reclaim our wholeness once again.
Any work that we do in the safe container of a group setting encourages a deeper level of healing and transformation, through accountability, support and being seen and witnessed through our process.
This is a 10-week workshop and will take place Wednesday evenings from 7 to 9 pm beginning March 24, 2021.
Personal investment is $425.
