COURSE OVERVIEW

Our shadow is what lies behind our senseless reactions.
It is the part of ourselves that feels unsafe to speak about, the part we to want avoid, because it’s too uncomfortable to engage with.
It is the part we often don’t know exists, because we live in a culture in which we have learned to numb ourselves in order to cope.
But our shadow is also the gateway to an unexplored part of us, where we can also find our greatest talents and gifts.

Over 5 sessions, Your Erotic Shadow will help you dive into the different faces of your shadow and awaken your highest creative and transformative force.

YOU WILL EXPLORE:
-Eros as a healing force,
-The nervous system as a guide to understanding your inner landscape,
-Your sexual fantasies as a way to better understanding yourself.

SESSION 1
OVERVIEW
This session introduces the viewer to the concept of the shadow and the benefits of engaging with it. It also shares an alternative definition of Eros, expanding beyond the traditional idea of "love, desire, and pleasure" to include the formation of everything in existence.
We will also explore how all transformation emerges from first dissolving into chaos. From this place, we can be reborn as the authentic beings that we are.
We will also explore how all transformation emerges from first dissolving into chaos. From this place, we can rebirth as the authentic beings that we are.
The centrepiece of this session is the guided practice in which we dive deep into our inner worlds. By grounding deep into the earth, we will find the safety needed to begin this energetic process. We will slow down our movements to gain sensitivity to our inner worlds and the potent energy available in the field. Sound work will allow us to drop deep below our stories and conditioning.

SESSION 2
OVERVIEW

Shameful sexual fantasies are often not what we think.
While we generally prefer to hire or avoid them, exploring them can often become a journey to our highest gifts.
In this session, we will discover how we can engage with them more mindfully and begin the process of unfolding their hidden gifts.
We will first be guided through a short process that will allow us to identify a fantasy we want to explore.
In a second, more extended practice, we will dive deeper into this fantasy to understand what is behind it and how we can learn about ourselves as we explore it. The key is slowing down, holding it in awareness, and then looking out for the qualities our being is actually seeking from it.

SESSION 3
OVERVIEW
As Eros involves the merger of polarities, it is inherently a neutral force, and this is the main reason it is so healing and transformative.
Anything which encounters neutrality will fall into balance and harmony and eventually find a potent space to achieve resolution.
This module guides us on how we can begin to find neutrality within ourselves.
The guided practice will enable us to find neutrality within our body and our energy field, using sounds, breathwork, and also dropping our awareness into our sensations.
Neutrality exists in our sensations, beyond the stories and narratives of our thoughts and emotions.

SESSION 4
OVERVIEW
How can we truly know our shadow when it is so easy to avoid it?
We will gain tools and skills that will allow us to better understand the hidden parts of our inner world.
We will also look at how the conflicts around us are also a great way to find those within us.
We will look at the nervous system as an indicator of our inner state.
We will learn about the social engagement system and the power of awakening its power for healing and transmutation.
The shadow can sometimes also heal without us even being aware it exists...
As always, we will be guided deep into our bodies and energy fields using breath, sounds, movement, and touch. We will look at sound and touch techniques that help us activate and engage the social engagement nervous system.

SESSION 5
OVERVIEW
In this final session of the series, we will explore the mysterious concept of rebirth.
We will look at the processes of death birth used by ancient civilisations and explore techniques that awaken the production of DMT in the brain.
We will look at how a deep dive practice can allow us to reach the inner realm where the conscious and unconscious (light and shadow) meet.
We will also look at techniques that allow us to unwire some of our patterns and begin to create "positive" feedback loops in our systems, rather than the negative loops which generally operate.
You'll be invited to switch off all lights and blackout your windows for a deep dive in the dark. This will enable you to dive deep into the inner realm where the conscious and unconscious meet.
We will use techniques to alter our brain chemistry and shift the habitual patterns in our bodies and energy fields.
