Our “shadow” is that part of ourselves that we don’t always see. Through creating community, using guided imagery and new embodied avenues to access inner “truths” about ourselves, we’ll create and use our cast shadow. Participants will learn pastel techniques to create a “metaphorical self” within the silhouette. Whether tapping into our gifts or our shortcomings, participants will experience the unique opportunity to access aspects of themselves that might not yet have been given voice or vision. This creative and spiritual practice can offer a sense of renewal and intimacy with our relationship to ourselves. Skills in self-reflection and celebration will be nurtured. No experience needed.
