Charles Town, West Virginia, USA
Led by Michael Nelson (Doshin)
Shadows are those things that we hide, repress or deny about ourselves. Emotions are the gateway to mining the gold that hides in the shadows!
At the Enlighten Your Shadows Retreat you will receive powerful meditation instructions that will help you to realize your own True Nature. From the stability of pure selfless awareness you will recognize the real nature and purpose of your emotions, and then find that Your ANGST really is your Liberation! You will learn to illuminate your ego structures and explore your individual shadows. Most importantly, you will learn tools that will help you find more peace, joy and creativity in your life.
We are part of Nature. Come learn how to let your body, your emotions (likes and dislikes), your thoughts (opinions and beliefs), your dreams, and especially your conflicts, inform and liberate you. Come learn to differentiate between your disowned selves (shadows) and your undeveloped selves (golden shadows).
Touch the deepest truth of who you are
Experience the clarity of seeing from selfless awareness
Learn to work with your shadows and your emotions
Discover the power personal work from meditative awareness.
This is an adventure that can change your life. The door is open but YOU must walk through.
“Some changes look negative on the surface but you will soon realize that space is being created in your life for something new to emerge.” ~ Eckhart Tolle
