Workshop: Transforming Our Shadow Parts Into Light

Written by drindlr on . Posted in Classes

A Relational Mindfulness Workshop

Join somatic practitioners Stacey Klein LCSW and Dan Rindler GCFP, for this special experiential workshop on how to identify and transform your “shadow” parts into places of power. Our shadow parts, as coined by psychoanalyst C.G Jung, are the aspects of ourselves we had to suppress or were discouraged from knowing and expressing due to family and cultural messages. In order to feel whole and in touch with our deepest truths, we need to reclaim these unknown and stuck places because they are the key to our gifts and our greatest transformation.

Movement is a very powerful way to access our shadow. Using mindfulness practices, designed to slow us down and tune us into our bodies and movement patterns in relationship to one another, accelerates our ability to identify what we tend to miss in our busy daily lives. We will use gentle movement exercises to illuminate the connection between our beliefs, feelings and movement patterns and specifically, how these connections manifest in our relationships with others. You will learn how exploring and transforming your habitual patterns of movement changes your experience of yourself in the world and integrates you physically, emotionally and spiritually.

This workshop is open to all. No prior movement experience is necessary.

“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.” C.G. Jung
