»It takes courage to stop running. It takes courage to lean into the storm. It takes courage to touch the darkness inside with the infinite light of our curious attention." Jeff Foster

Creative with your shadow is an open space for everyone who wants to explore the shadow aspects on the way to the light, in a creative way. I've been teaching shadows for the tenth year in a row, at least once a year, and no workshop has ever been the same. I am always amazed at the power of transformation that occurs during meetings and look forward to the insights and aha moments that this research will bring. Shadows Map, 5Rhythms by Gabrielle Roth; inertia (Flowing), frustration (Staccatto), destruction (Chaos), inauthenticity (Lyrical rhythm), numbness (Stillness). I combine the shadow map and many years of experience of teaching art with the new knowledge I am acquiring as a student of Expressive Art Therapy.

We co-create the research in a group that is closed and is formed for a month and ends with a one-day workshop. The group will be closed due to the nature of the work, as it provides an intimate and safe space and a deeper experience.

What the participants said about the workshop:

"The shadow workshop coincided with what was happening in me at that time. In November, I dug the deepest and exactly shadows, dancing with them, researching allowed me not to cling to them and sink with them into known bottomless abysses. Movement is liberating. What I would point out is that I felt anger for the first time in a very long time and it was cathartic. The most valuable thing is that since then I have felt and expressed it many times in my life. This was the second shadow workshop for me and there was no comparison. If last year I danced with the shadows, this year I danced with the weight caused from outside, with the one from within and wondered where the cracks are through which the light will shine. Which movement frees me and shows the way out. I am grateful to you for the space you keep opening. When I think back to my first steps of 5Rythms, a wonderful path emerges for me, especially the path of acceptance." Katarina

"In my everyday life, I don't have the opportunity anywhere to express myself through dance, voice or painting, so this is really valuable to me. I believe I still have a problem with control, so FUCK YOU is probably the most healing for me, even though I was embarrassed last time and didn't really give it my all. I like everything, the music, the leading, the theme..." Barbka

"I think the fact that I persist and will apply for the next cycle says everything you need to know. It just helps me navigate through life. I'm far from always having a great time there. Chaos, as you know, is often a kind of stress for me. But with your or both of yours help and my stubbornness, it gets easier every time. And every time at the end I feel that I am ready for a new week of challenges.” Nina
