Relationships as Mirrors Pt. 1 Shadow Work (4 weeks) with Rebeca Eigen
Course Description: This experiential course is about relating to ’others,‘ and is not just for couples. ALL relationships will improve when you learn about your Shadow self. Carl Jung’s life work was in learning to go into his own unconscious. His discovery of the shadow is a gift like no other as this part of us is with us at all times, whether we know it or not. He said,
“The psychological rule says that when an inner situation is not made conscious, it happens outside as fate. That is to say, when the individual remains undivided and does not become conscious of his inner opposite, the world must perforce act out the conflict and be torn into opposing halves.” CW9: AION: 126
“Most people confuse ‘self-knowledge’ with knowledge of their conscious ego personalities. Anyone who has any ego-consciousness at all takes it for granted that he knows himself. But the ego knows only its own contents, not the unconscious and its contents. People measure their self-knowledge by what the average person in their social environment knows of himself, but not the real psychic facts which are for the most part hidden from them.” CW 10 – Civilization in Transition, The Undiscovered Self (Present and Future), par 491, pg 249
In this course you will learn what Jung discovered in the inner world that we too can benefit from. Discovering and embracing our shadow can become a way of being in the world that will help you create the kind of relationships liberate us from repeating patterns.
