Goldmining The Shadows
Shadow is a term for the discarded within ourselves that informs our lives. It offers the potential to reveal what we previously thought was unsuitable, so unsuitable that we imprisoned it and forgot it. The aim is to know the shadow well, appreciate it, seek to integrate it—not leave it neglected to rot in a cell beneath the surface, where it is inevitably clanging its tin cup against the bars asking for acknowledgement and honoring—to make a place for it as part of your life story, but not let it be the operating manual.
In this book, we'll explore: The keys to working with your shadows. How to engage your shadow to heal generational patterns. The acts of liberation for individuals and all members of society and culture. What it would look like to break the repetitive loop of suffering. Language prompts to help navigate the shadows. Shadow work is one of many keys to breaking the cycles of suffering. It prioritizes healing and offers empathy for one another.
