shadow work workshop

Post by David » Sun Oct 04, 2015 6:46 am

The link was a suggested listening too, before attending a weekend workshop on shadow work. I've completed the first day yesterday. All i can say is its powerful work and i managed to touch and shift some very deeply held grief, rage and sadness. Intense, painful and cathartic that no amount of talk therapy would ever reach. Our angst is held in our bodies, not in our heads.

Psychotherapy whist great for reparenting, creating a safe space to let go of toxic shame, learn to be vulnerable and psychoeducation just doesn't reach these parts.

Taking if being vulnerable (which is a strength, not a weakness) I like Brene Brown's work. When we are vulnerable, that's when we have real intimacy and heart-felt connection in relationships.

not familiar with it but if it takes us back to the original wound that has to be good IMHO

Sunflower,

I was always interested in primal therapy, but was concerned first about finding a local practitioner who could assist in the process and second about the ramifications to my current work schedule. Since primaling seems to be something that one should not embark upon lightly, I would have really wanted to make sure some open time in my life was available for the potential fall-out. Nevertheless, I always liked reading the links at this site: http://primal-page.com/

That about sums it up for me. The weekend just reinforced how much neglect i struggle/d with. Something definitely got released from my body during the weekend.
