2 What is Shadow Work? The term Shadow was first used by Carl G. Jung to describe the traits that we deny exist in ourselves. Your shadow is that part of your natural human make-up which you decided to repress, probably in childhood, and which you unconsciously still strive to keep at bay. This stops you from being the fully expressed person that you could be. And it saps your energy. Shadow Work was originated in the US by Cliff Barry and developed with co-founders Mary Ellen Blandford, Erva Baden and Dimitri Bilgere. It uses a unique synthesis of ancient and modern tools to identify and process these repressed Shadow parts. Meeting your Archetypal Energies Jung also developed the theory of Archetypes to name and personify specific controlling energies within the human psyche. Shadow Work uses four of these Archetypal energies - the Sovereign, the Warrior, the Magician and the Lover - as tools to focus on and transform the shadows in the individual s psyche. Seeing your Shadows One reliable way to identify your shadows is to look at what you project onto others. When you deny a trait in yourself you tend to be very aware of that trait in other people and you become unduly annoyed by them or overly admiring of their talents. You can also spot your shadow by looking at the things you do by accident, or by noticing how you repeatedly say one thing yet always do another.

3 In Shadow Work you can bring out that hidden part of yourself, look straight at it, and then transform it so that it works for you instead of against you. Carl G. Jung first used the word Shadow to describe the repressed, hidden or denied part of the Self. Most people have fun doing it and they feel free, happy and powerful afterwards. Nicola Kurk, Facilitator This is the most powerful means of exploring my own inner world that I ve ever experienced. Shadow Work specialises in using psychological tools that are fast, clean and incisive, moving rapidly to the root of the problem that you choose to examine. The safest environment I have met in 20 years of group work. Yet you always have the choice about how far to go. The process always respects you and your needs in every moment both in the group workshops and the private one-to-one sessions. I had to do something to get some balance back into my life Shadow Work can address any issue you want to address and move you through a process to understand it better. The effects can be life- changing, life-enhancing and long-lasting. To re-experience strong feelings from the past and see them change, is priceless. Everyone holds parts of their lives in shadow, usually the parts that carry strong feelings of unexpressed fear, grief, anger - even joy. These parts manifest themselves in many ways and always indicate some profound dissatisfaction with the way things are.. Now I just feel healthier, more energetic In Shadow Work you can quickly get to the bottom of these issues and then release the old patterns that you have held tightly in place. In so doing, you will find new energy flowing through you because you are more relaxed and at home in yourself.

4 our relationship has deepened "To me, each person s story is totally unique. I see the world. transforming as people change, literally, before my eyes during a workshop. John Kurk, Facilitator Shadow Work can help you discover what lies at the root of your relationship problems - often something unexpected which then allows you to break free of inhibiting and destructive patterns. Shadow Work is not another relationship technique, but a way of seeing how powerfully your childhood parental bonds might still be calling the shots in your adult partnerships. I was finally able to see my authority issues Many of us go on repeating our school issues in our work life, wondering why we feel irrationally angry with the boss or frustrated by colleagues. Shadow Work can help you see why you have become over-responsible, domineering, or a workaholic. It can also address where your sense of failure comes from, your inability to stick at things, or your lack of career drive. Our sex life was in a rut, boring Shadow Work gives you a safe space to explore deeply hidden issues that are significantly controlling your natural impulses, sex being the major one. You can look at your guilt and shame and you can separate your true values about sex from the values you inherited. In a society obsessed with overt sexual imagery, it can help you release your own authentic sexual nature. I got to see the burning anger in me If the untapped depth of your own rage troubles you, Shadow Work has the tools to let you step into it and experience it in full fury without harming yourself or anyone else. It is cathartic and healing. But the Shadow Work process takes you beyond simply expressing the unexpressable - it also enables you to integrate this powerful energy more creatively and positively.

5 John and Nicola Kurk Shadow Work Facilitators John and Nicola Kurk are certificated Shadow Work facilitators and have led Shadow Work seminars in the UK, Europe and North America since They are active members of the International Shadow Work Guild and are qualified to train others in these skills. Both are experienced group leaders who have led personal development workshops, separately and together, for the last 18 years. She also offers one-toone coaching to individuals and couples using Shadow Work methods. More recently they have taken these skills into global corporations and now lead business retreats in the UK and North America as well as training executives in leadership, facilitation, and communication skills. As Shadow Work facilitators John and Nicola are both recognised for the safe and shame-free context they provide in both group and individual settings.

6 Get this... There are things that happen to us in a moment that can make our lives much worse. What most people don t know is that it is possible to set up circumstances where your life can get much better in a moment. That s exactly what you can do for yourself in a Shadow Work session. Dimitri Bilgere, Shadow Work Facilitator. If you have ever felt that NLP doesn t quite reach the parts that will really make the difference for you then Shadow Work is a powerful next step. Personally, I have tapped into a dynamic creative energy I never knew I had and I have never felt so focused as I do now. Lorraine Calland, Managing Director, Metacoach. I had already spent several years in Recovery when I heard about Shadow Work. I found it a great tool for dealing with the intractable issues I was unable to resolve using the 12- step process. And because safety is so deliberately ensured, I could relax, knowing there would be no violation. B.H., Personnel Director, Dorset. I was able to re-enact the feelings of the three year old me. Suddenly, I found I had access to all the beauty and playfulness that had been trapped along with the hate and anger. Shadow Work is the safest environment I have met in 20 years of groupwork. Debbie Collins, Therapist, Warwickshire. The opportunity to re-experience strong feelings from the past and see them change, is priceless for me. Brian Holden, Partner, Smart Holidays (aged 62). Shadow Work has helped me to understand and transform my own self-defeating, destructive and sometimes downright incomprehensible behaviour. Carole Brown, Catering Manager, The Cotswolds.. I was finally able to see the authority issues that have held me back - particularly in my career - since I was at boarding school. Philip Batchelor, Astrological Counsellor, Gloucestershire.. After eight years in therapy I can honestly say that this process is the most powerful means of exploring my own inner world that I ve ever experienced. Jim Shipley, European Training Manager, IA. I watched my husband work through a sad and painful part of his childhood. It was a revelation to us both and it s enabling us to talk about things now that we both used to avoid at all costs. It s certainly deepened our relationship. K.B. Marketing Consultant, West Midlands. Punching pillows has never done anything at all for me, but this time something shifted. I got to see the burning anger and I moved through it. I felt cleansed, initiated. I got a sense of having boundaries, a notion which had always puzzled me. M.G., teacher & trainer, Warwickshire. My work in the centre enabled me to unravel some of the conflicting voices in my head and helped me to understand some of the confusion I have had about my experiences in life. Now, I just feel somehow healthier, more energetic, and more at peace. R.
