Shadow Work

The Shadow is the part of our psyche that contains all of our repressed and ignored emotions, habits, tendencies, desires and even gifts. This is an aspect of ourselves that we would rather pretend didn’t exist.

Shadow work involves getting in touch with those parts of yourself that you have repressed. Some may refer to this as their “dark side” and it is called “Shadow Work” as it involves diving into the unconscious material that shapes our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Shadow Work is simply becoming aware of what is hidden and gradually healing those aspects of yourself.
