The shadow is the name given in Jungian psychology to a complex of unacceptable feelings and impulses that function as an inner opponent, blocking growth and full expression of one’s true self. By recognizing and integrating this inner adversary, however, people have the potential to also use it as an ongoing ally – a spirit guide - to self-discovery and personal growth.
To learn how to connect with and benefit from the spirit guide, EarthRise Retreat Center at the Institute of Noetic Sciences is offering a unique opportunity to learn guided alchemical divinations from consciousness science visionary Dr. Ralph Metzner. During Integrating with Your Shadow, Connecting with Your Guide, a weekend workshop April 13 to 15, 2012, Dr. Metzner will lead rhythmic rattling and drumming to support the process of concentration and tracking as well as practices of light-fire yoga to help purify and clarify perceptions and dissolve energy-blockages. He also will include chanting and drawing for aural-vocal and visual-spatial integration and application.
Early bird registration for the workshop is $295 available through March 19, 2012. Thereafter, the regular fee is $325. Fees include the program and 6 freshly prepared meals. Onsite lodging is $75 per person per night for a shared room or $99 per night for a single room. For more information and to register, visit the EarthRise registration page or call Jan Fischer at 707-779-8202
Thirteen continuing education credits are available for marriage and family therapists, licensed clinical social workers, and nurses for a processing fee of $25.
