Transforming Shadows – Turn your demons into employees

On the Transforming Shadows workshop you will learn how to transform unruly demons into employees and harvest the many gifts within challenges instead of exhausting yourself battling them.

  • You will learn how to dissolve and heal blocked emotions and the pain of old habits which weigh you down and reframenegative beliefs which hold pain-loops in place.
  • You will play games and processes which lighten up rigid notions of appropriateness and uptight limitations of unconscious shame and negativity.
  • You will laugh your head off and realise how much energy you’ve been wasting wearing masks to satisfy other people who’s values you don’t necessarily share.
  • You will realise how precious each day is and how much more space there is for mischief and playfulness in the world, especially yours.
  • You will forgive yourself for all the shame and negativity you’ve allowed yourself to carry due to old beliefs from uptight parents, carers and teachers of old.
  • You will reclaim vast amounts of energy and joy and channel it into your creativity and passions.Wonderful treasure we reclaim from ‘the shadow’ includes feeling comfortable to take centre stage, enjoying dancing, allowing the discovery of failure, allowing oneself (and others) to be messy sometimes, singing, arting, wearing colours, being fully honest with family and friends, self-care, cracking yourself up, being able to release emotion with crying, experiencing the passion of your anger, standing up for yourself, engaging with causes and healing, laughing at ourselves, being generous, allowing others to support us in our vulnerability, being sexy, enjoying all kinds of pleasure…
    ….the shadow is not just the dark and yucky bits, it’s all the parts of ourselves we learnt at young ages were ‘unwelcome’ or got us rejected or told off.

It take SO little effort and drama to gently turn towards these places and reclaim their treasure….and there’s a lot of sheepish laughter and friendship in it….

What natural parts of yourself did you shut down as a kid? Let’s welcome them home together….

About the Facilitator:

Jamie Catto facilitates professional, personal and creative breakthroughs, drawing from his own processes in ground-breaking film production, philosophy voyages and music.

Our mission is to make self-reflection hip enough to save us from ourselves. We believe that by collectively acknowledging our insanity and our deepest darkest shadows, we can learn how to work with it to tackle global crisis’ by channelling our energy into action for the world rather than using it all up on fighting ourselves. In doing so, we give each other permission to let our masks fall and focus on what’s really important.

PLAY – Through play we clear the path for creativity and social engagement by dropping the weight of emotionally charged reactions!

CREATIVITY – Fuels all that we do whether creating art or how we live our everyday lives connected to the Flow state.

FACING THE SHADOW Because we all have a dark side and the sooner we let it in and get to know it, the less it will threaten to drag us into the shadows with it.

INTIMACY – The most precious and sought after experience on earth allowing us to experience true, deep connection.

AUTHENTICITY – It’s exhausting wearing a mask. When we let it fall we can redirect our energy to where it is most needed for ourselves and for the world, giving others permission to do the same.
