Shadow Work® is based on four archetypes that are a part of each person: Sovereign, Warrior, Magician, and Lover. Carl Jung first identified the reality of archetypes that are shared in the collective unconscious. Other psychologists, theologians, and writers have continued to explore this experience in humanity. Shadow Work® processes are designed to help a person find a healthy balance of these foundational aspects of their personality. I assist people to lift shame off of their feelings and learn what their joy, sadness, anger and fear are telling them. I believe that for each of us, there is a gift that we receive from our own King or Queen, our Lover, our Warrior, and our Magician. Accepting and using those gifts makes us more focused, happy, connected and powerful in our lives.
