The drive to “know thyself” is hardwired into our very being. This journey with and to ourselves is what Jung called Individuation. Our life task is to confront ourselves as we explore our potentials, and our gifts, toward an experience of our soul. However, early life knocks us down with hurts and wounds block our way in this task. We hide parts of ourselves because it is safer.  We deem certain parts unacceptable and we push them away.  Part of our individuation journey to locate and recover these long-lost parts of ourselves to rediscover life, and the experience of SOUL. 

In this interactive workshop, we will dive into the shadow and befriending the parts of ourselves that we have lost.  In the honest and courageous task of working with ourselves, we find life energy and our destiny. We will engage in practical exercises that will deepen students' awareness of themselves and the individuation journey.  Students will be able to incorporate the material into their daily lives and practices afterwards to live more authentic and compassionate lives.
