After many years of spiritual and self-development work I realised that I still held a chore of anxiety that nothing had quite touched or erased. In the SW Workshop I was able to access the root of this and make the energetic shift, which has realigned my perspective on life. It is now six months since the workshop and I have noticed many positive changes in my feeling responses to situations.
Shadow Work was far more effective than I dared to hope it could be and as good as I ever could have imagined. The tools and techniques are finely tuned to address each personal problem and bring out the essence of healing. All aspects of the human are integrated so well I felt more relief after one weekend then I’ve found through years of work. Although some previous personal work is invaluable for progress, the dynamic range of the process seems almost unlimited – from big to small.
I loved the work we did together and how you led the weekend. The little jewel I found amongst my shadows was not what I'd expected, nor something I'd ever thought of or remembered. But there it was, lying in the shadows, running large sections of my life. With your help in tracking that one down and doing some reframing, I feel I've moved forward in many ways. Mainly a greater inner freedom and self-confidence. Happier.
