According to Carl Jung, the Shadow Self is that part of you that you hide inside yourself, from yourself. The Shadow holds our unconscious habits and limiting beliefs, yet it also holds unlimited creativity, knowledge and power. When you embrace your shadow, you take your power back from people, places and experiences that control it, and you also activate new levels of power heretofore latent within your energetic body. Also, embracing your shadow can help in healing from deep emotional wounds, such as bullying, divorce and breakups, sexual abuse, crippling self-doubt, grief and depression. In this class, you will learn the anatomy of the shadow, how to activate it’s power with channeling, and you will be taken through a live shadow work healing meditation ceremony, where you will embrace what is waiting for you in the dark in a safe, non-judgemental and high vibrational space. All levels of skill and energywork and magickal styles welcome! Blessed be, and harm none; we are all One Tribe!

The first time I remember it happening was when I broke my femur. Yep, I managed to break the hardest bone to break in your body by skiing into a tree. A few hours later, as my leg was taped to a cardboard brace, my whole body started to shake uncontrollably. I couldn't stop my body from moving my broken leg because of all the shaking. Not only had I lost all control of my body, but the pain was excruciating and I didn't know how to make it stop. This was my first taste of a panic attack and I was 14. As the years went on, the panic returned often, most notably when I was feeling ill or I was around someone else who was. I suffered from an extreme phobia of throwing up, not surprisingly because it represents a total loss of bodily control. You know how some people like to just throw up and feel better and others fight it until the end? I'm one of the fighters. And I'll let my body shake uncontrollably for what seems like hours to avoid the experience. Yes, I would rather go through agony for hours, then agony for a minute or so. The shaking is always the worst in my thigh. College was an interesting time for me because there are a lot of people who throw up in college. I avoided parties like the plague and buried myself in schoolwork instead. Always an overachiever, I got involved so I didn't have to remind myself that I had nowhere to go on a Friday night. My overachievement, naturally, caused me a lot of stress. I turned to yoga to help calm me down and keep me in shape after completing P90X. I'd always wanted to be a writer when I was growing up. As I was getting ready to apply to college it was evident (for some reason) that I couldn't just graduate from college and be a "writer" so I chose to pursue journalism instead. I soon found out journalism wasn't for me, and switched to the public relations/marketing side of things. The year was 2010 and I was getting ready to graduate from college in an extremely poor job market. I had convinced myself that I would be an epic failure if I didn't find myself a job before I graduated, so I went on tons of informational interviews and upped my networking to make it happen. I was also working 10-20 hours a week, was the President of a co-ed Honors Fraternity, and was taking the hardest class I've ever taken in my life (it was a PR class). Needless to say, my stress levels were out of control. One night, as I was going to sleep, I started to feel extreme pain in my left chest. It hurt to breathe. I thought I was having a heart attack. I took a risk and waited until the morning to go to the campus health center. After seeing 3 or 4 different doctors and undergoing every electrical heart health test known to man, I got my diagnosis: there was nothing wrong with me. This infuriated me because I was constantly in pain every time I laughed, every time I breathed - I couldn't even practice yoga, the one thing I knew how to do that would calm me down. On my 21st birthday I went to the bar with my friends clutching my ribcage and reminding everyone not to make me laugh because I was in so much pain. There was definitely something wrong with me. And I had to heal my Self. I got on my mat anyway. I distinctly remember wincing in pain as I tried to power through my poses. It wasn't working. Yoga taught me how to calm down, and then when breathing and movement couldn't help me anymore, yoga taught me how to slow down and honor my body to give it the space it needed to heal. I showed up and did what I could. Sometimes I didn't show up at the studio at all, but I got rid of things in my life that were causing too much stress. I got involved in the community and found support. Incidentally, that solved my job problem, because I ended up getting a marketing job with the yoga studio. I started a cleanse program and dove into learning more about yoga philosophy and the yoga lifestyle. I changed my life, and my pain went away without a single prescription medication. A few years later, a big decision loomed. My boyfriend of 6 years was starting some extensive military training in a small town in Texas and he wanted me to go with him. Leaving Boulder, CO, would mean leaving my job, my community, my studio and everything I knew - especially my lifestyle. But there was something inside me that knew I needed to go. Over the course of 3 years, we moved from Boulder to Texas to Arizona to Washington DC and yoga helped me gain control of my life when it seemed like everything was out of my control. It helped me stay consistent, stick to a routine, and have faith. It helped me find a supportive community no matter where I went. And it helped me find myself in the places where I least expected it (ahem, Wichita Falls, TX). I started practicing yoga to stay in shape and release some stress. What I learned was how to love my life. How to have faith. How to find your community of people who support you and love you unconditionally. How to get back control. If it weren't for yoga, I'd still be hopelessly in pain. Today, it is my mission to help busy Type-A overachiever women like me gain back control of their lives, live pain-free, and love the life they want to live through yoga lifestyle practices.
