About the Event
In the Wizard of Oz we're introduced to Wicked Witch of the West and the Good Witch of the North! When meeting the Good Witch for the first time, Dorothy was asked if she was a "good" or "bad" witch. She responds, "I'm not a witch at all, they're old and ugly!" In other words, nothing like the view I hold of myself. I offer, in the opening of the movie Dororthy runs with dog to her family to ask for protection from the neighborhood witch. Dorothy couldn't see that her own behavior as a wicked as Ms. Gulch/the Wicked Witch.
For me, both witches represent "good" and "bad;" "right and wrong;" "yin" and "yang;" "love and fear;" and "shadow" and "light." The shadow, a term originally coined by Carl Jung, is the unconscious. It is all of those things we don’t know about ourselves and/or don't like. Denying the "shadow self" is to deny vital information that shapes our daily experience. In the late 90' someone invited me to say, "Just like me" after every judgement. Boy, did I wake up to a significant realization of how much I judge others and myself, how the fear-based judgements showed up in my relationships, and how much energy was expended. The Law of Resistence states, "Whatever we resists persists and drains our energy."
In this interactive 60 minute experience you will be introduced to a process that will support you in gently connecting to the gift-the information contained within the shadow experience. It is this gift that can shift our perspective of life as grey and dismal to colorful and rich with possibility.
