About the Event
The Wizard of Oz was and still is a favorite movie. As a child, each time I saw it, I feared Dorothy’s nasty neighbor, Ms. Gulch, who rode off with Toto trapped in a wooden basket on the back of her bicycle. I loved the energy of the Munchkins and wondered why the Good Witch waited until the end of the movie to tell Dorothy she had the power to go home at any time.
At 30, I experienced a major shift. I discovered the characters I liked were reflections of the parts of my personality I like. The ones I didn’t like reflected parts of myself I denied, avoided, disliked, suppressed, and/or didn’t know-the shadows. Lack of self-awareness contributed to blaming others for my “grey and dismal experience” of life. This negatively impacted my spiritual life and arrested my personal development. The movie introduced me to the shadows. I know now, each one contains a wonderful gift that continues to nurture my journey. Embracing the shadows is like making friends with both the Witch of the West and the North. -it’s the Oneness of Yin and Yang.
For more than 2 decades I’ve been sharing my unique connection to the movie version of this story. This is your invitation to join me as we play and pause the film to discuss what you see, the meaning you give to it, and what it’s teaching/showing/revealing to you about you. What you’ve been running away from has been following you to give you the thing you’ve been praying for. Grab your favorite drink, popcorn, journal & pen and let’s play in the shadows.
This experience includes:
· Watching the full movie
· Journal prompts
· Lively discussion (with a few Spiritual Laws thrown in)
· Introduction to the Shadow Play process
· Heartwork (an assignment to extend the experience)
