Transmute the Shadow with Ben Mackinnon
Time & Location
About the Event
Dreams are a window to what is below the surface. Both good and bad. Repressed and expressed.
In this 3hr workshop utilising group and individual work we will begin to foster a connection to the shadow in ourselves and in others.
Both Golden and Dark.
We will embark on a warriors journey to embrace what we hide from others because we deem it too brilliant or too repulsive.
A warriors journey to welcome them both home through dream practises, lucid dream practises, meditation and compassion.
Walk into the darkness and into the light with an open heart. For the greatest form of protection is compassion.
As the one of the modern forefathers of modern psychology Carl Jung once said:
"Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darkness of other people."
