Shadow Work is a pathway of exploring the psyche in depth psychology. The shadow is a vast term that is used to describe the aspects of ourselves that are “hidden” or unseen. Oftentimes, the shadow expresses itself as habitual patterns and maladaptive (unhelpful) ways in our lives. It is a part of the self that has been shamed or repressed into submission, but ultimately wants to be heard, seen and held.
Once we explore the message behind the shadow and allow it to express itself in a way that is healthy and intentional, we often find power that we never knew we had - often in the form of increased self worth, joy and peace.
Exploring your shadow can lead to greater authenticity, creativity, energy, and personal awakening.
Reiki is based on the idea that “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. The body, the breath, our emotions and our thoughts all shift our “power” within. When our energy is low then we are more likely to become ill or uneasy. When our energy is flowing freely and with ease, we become more contented and happy in our lives.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It involves the practitioner utilizing either a hands on or hands off approach to feeling into the energy field and calling forth releasing, balancing and infusing of energy that will be for the highest and best good of the person receiving. Reiki is often times a relaxing and meditative experience that leaves one feeling more connected, ultimately with themselves.
