Shadow Work

What do we mean when we refer to doing one’s ‘shadow work’?

In essence, shadow work is the ongoing process of not only uncovering those aspects of our psyche that we have denied and polarised, but consciously bringing them to balance with our conscious self and integrating those aspects with our whole identity.

The goal is to come to terms with and accept the undesirable traits and characteristics of our personality – those hidden impulses and desires that we (or society) deem to be unacceptable.

Shadow work is definitely not an intellectual exercise; it’s a journey from the head to the heart.
