In order to have true free will in your life, you must confront your shadow. The “Shadow” is a term coined by the Swiss psychologist, Carl G. Jung, and he describes it as a container of all the repressed and rejected parts of ourselves that were not adaptable in social life. We discuss the Individuation process, similar to what Maslow called, “Self-Actualization.” Confronting our shadow is the first step on this journey to becoming our true Self. We explore:

  • What is the Shadow?
  • How to avoid confusing Shadow aspects as something we already know such as our insecurities or negative beliefs or thoughts.
  • How the shadow is portrayed in the popular TV Series, Ted Lasso
  • How to overcome the ego’s defenses in order to access shadow material
  • How to create with free will and not from past conditioning

We’d like to dedicate this to all the shadow warriors out there that are doing this incredible work. It’s a big topic, but we want to make it practical for everyone. We’re going to talk about how we develop and why we develop the shadow, how we protect the shadow, how the ego defends it with its life, and then how we work with it and why everyone should work with the shadow.
