Embracing Your Shadow Self Workshop

A journey into accepting every part of ourselves, and becoming whole

We all have a story. Our struggle is the understanding of how to let the story go and choose instead to embrace every single part of ourselves. Every young child, knows and understands kindness, love, compassion, forgiveness and generosity. They also understand greed, selfishness and anger, but they learn that these qualities are wrong or unacceptable in society. The parts of us that we deny as children get tossed behind us into a large garbage bag, and we carry it with us most of our lives. When we begin to understand our shadow self, we start to take ownership and bridge acceptance of the entire person we really are. We realize that we are dualistic in nature, and that everything we see in others lives in us as well.

The magic of this powerful workshop is that the qualities we don’t like in ourselves are those that hold the greatest power and can supercharge our quest to becoming whole.

This workshop is for you if you are looking to step into:

• Improved relationships with yourself and others
• Accepting and empowering ALL parts of yourself
• How to liberate and free stuck energy so that you can begin to manifest
and create with intention

*How to truly begin the journey we are all seeking.. becoming whole.

I came to yoga for the “athletic” aspect and over the years I have grown to embrace the spiritual side of it.  It wasn’t until I came to Glow Yoga Wellness Studios that I heard of the Shadow and decided to take a leap and join Carol Baxter’s Shadow Weekend workshop. It’s easy to stay in your routine, in your patterns, thoughts and feelings, but this weekend opens your eyes, your mind and your heart. Carol is a tremendous leader, who guided myself and the other amazing people along on our journey; challenging us to face our demons, realize the demon isn’t so bad, and might even be an angel. Carol gave us unwavering support, love, encouragement, a nudge in the right direction, and the odd push off the cliff…with faith that we were ready to fly. The ShadowWorkshop brought me a deeper understanding of myself, how I am everything and that everything is exactly how it should be. I finished the weekend with the tools to keep diving deeper, to truly know myself and love myself, and with the knowledge that I am a work in progress, but no matter what, I am a masterpiece. Thank you!
The Shadow Weekend with Carol Baxter was an extraordinary experience. Carol’s guidance through this weekend was very unique, skillful and dynamic. Deep letting go of heavy burdens I carried during my life under Carol’s guidance was challenging but amazing at the same time and started a new way of looking at myself. Thank you Carol & Michelle!

The Shadow weekend was an enlightening experience and a journey of a lifetime.

It has truly opened my heart and awareness of life and to stay present in body and mind.

Finding out so much about myself that never would I have had the courage to face without my finding my shadow to enter the light.

Forgiving myself has changed they way I am going to approach situations that may arise. Now, feeling balanced and grounded I want to share this energy with everyone in my life.

Feeling so empowered that I have finally owned all of the toxic energy I have been carrying around for so long. I am now at peace with letting all of it go.

Never have I felt so complete with process of meditation and yoga.

I now want to share with the world and teaching yoga a positive and balanced energy. Wishing others will feel the same wholeness as I do in my presence.

Creating space and releasing tension is an amazing journey of body and mind.

I have already realized this week how different I feel and how it is affecting others in such a positive light.

I want to share my gratitude and thankfulness with everyone involved in this journey.

I’m so happy that I made the decision to enter the YTT program and have had the pleasure of meeting so many beautiful people.

Thank you Carol for being such a wonderful guide in this new journey in my life.

You are so inspirational and I feel so blessed to be part of an amazing community.
