Uncovering, illuminating, healing, and integrating our disowned selves
  • I Love My Shadow...

    Those dark, disowned parts of myself have proven to be really amazing teachers for me, and I am learning so much about who I really am.

    It's not always easy, but it is always worth it!

  • I Love My Shadow...

    I couldn't have gotten where I am today if I hadn't made the choices I made, but I do sometimes wonder how my life might be different if I had chosen to love my shadow parts much sooner!

  • I Love My Shadow...

    I'm amazed at how many limiting beliefs seem to be hidden away inside me. Uncovering them and transforming them is so healing and empowering.

    I've now reached a point where it's become a kind of exciting adventure for me to go within and see what new things I can find out about myself. Very fulfilling.

  • I Love My Shadow...

    I didn't think it was possible to experience such freedom and self-love, but uncovering and illuminating my shadows has really helped to bring me to that place.

    I used to think I knew myself pretty well. But then I started connecting with some of my shadows...and that's when I really started getting to know myself deeply!

“What would your good do if evil didn’t exist, and what would the earth look like if all the shadows disappeared?” — Mikhail Bulgakov

The Shadow. This term can sound kind of scary. Given that it suggests connection to darkness as well as to aspects of the unknown, it is no wonder! But what exactly is a shadow anyway? Well, here’s a pretty simple definition:

Any part, aspect, behavior, attribute, or characteristic of yourself that you disown, disavow, deny, hide, or repress.

Most of us are unaware of how we have “cast out” parts of ourselves in this way, and so most of our shadows are totally unconscious. However, we can all remember times in our lives when we have acted out in certain ways that we might describe as “unintentional”, “uncontrollable”, “accidental” or “uncharacteristic”—and then wondered how such powerful behaviors got the better of us in the first place! These are all examples of times when our unconscious shadows have decided to “come out and play”.

I Love My Shadow™ is all about helping people to uncover, illuminate, heal, and integrate the power of their shadows. At the same time, we do our best to demystify the notion of shadow so that the integration process becomes gradually less scary—and eventually, maybe even fun!

Welcome to the journey!
