We will be working from the premise is that we are all the holders of aspects of our Shadow Self that seek to dominate us and determine our behavior. They make themselves known to us as inner voices and the emotions they engender. The conflict that humans continue to experience, either overtly or in the recesses of our consciousness, is the chorus of voices speaking from the shadowy corners of our deep self and the swirling emotional currents that seem to encompass our very being.
The work of this Journey of Illumination, regardless of how the Shadow appears or the emotions that well up inside us, means valuing the Shadow as a gift that enriches our True Wise Self and broadens our presence, to ourselves and to our world. For some this will be a beginning in a practice of knowing these aspects of ourselves and taking on tools to employ this gift. For others the work will to support and deepen our current practices. For all; that Trickster Coyote has something to say.
