Facing Your Shadow

A Journey to Know Yourself and Bring Light to the World

Facing Your Shadow guides you through the process of illuminating the unconscious forces that drive our lives. Join Caroline Myss and Andrew Harvey to learn how to engage the power of choice to heal and transform both ourselves and the world.

Featured In

Have you ever had a pattern of falling in love with the same type of person, over and over again, even though the relationships seemed doomed from the start? Or wondered why certain events were triggering for you, seemingly out of proportion to the events themselves? Or had a sense that there was some creative endeavor wanting to be born through you that you couldn’t quite name, as if it were hidden on the very edge of your awareness?

All of these experiences are indicators of the Shadow at work. The Shadow is that part of us that is unknown, yet influences every aspect of our lives.

What if you could become more conscious of your Shadow? And most importantly, what if you could begin to make wiser choices and bring your greatest gifts to the world? This is why we created Facing Your Shadow.

It is through the door of the Shadow that you enter into the highest mystery of your incarnation.

Facing Your Shadow is an eight-week transformational learning experience with two of the most creative spiritual teachers and “Shadow busters” of our time, Caroline Myss and Andrew Harvey. The course is a guide to uncovering what you don’t know about yourself so you can come into alignment with your true power and purpose. And it is also a journey of self-confrontation, one that requires courage, truth-telling, and a willingness to grow.

We live in unprecedented times. Never before have we had such incredible powers to connect and create as well as divide and destroy. Now, as we do our inner work, we are also called upon to face the multiple Shadows of our collective crises. This is a brave undertaking—and also joyful, heart-opening, and meaningful. Few things fulfill us so deeply as discovering our true sacred mission and how we can bring our light to a world that so needs us.

We hope you’ll join us!

Inside the Facing Your Shadow Journey

Each week you’ll venture into another area of the Shadow, exploring archetypes, inner work, buried treasures, and our collective Shadows. You’ll emerge from your eight-week journey with new awareness about the workings of the universe and your role within it.

Week 1

The Rules of Creation and the Treasures Hidden in the Dark

In this introductory session, you’ll discover the importance of doing Shadow work at this unprecedented time in history, as well as the archetypes involved in this work.

Explore:

  • Light and dark—choice and the nature of the universe
  • Initiation—embark on the journey through prayers of protection
  • The four treasures you’ll uncover through this work

Understand the ways in which you’re unconsciously drawn into the Shadow so you can learn to break free

Week 2

The Shadow in Our Personal Relationships, Five Shadow Confrontations, and the Supremacy of Love

Here you will continue to explore archetypal dynamics, how they play out in our relationships, and how they inform the collective Shadows of all people.

Learn:

  • New collective Shadows that have come into being since the dawn of the nuclear age
  • The five Shadows responsible for our current evolutionary crisis
  • Sacred relationships—friendship, connection with animals, our work, and embracing our sexuality

Find out why parts of yourself have become hidden, forgotten, or disavowed

Week 3

Owning How Your Shadow Works and Taking Back “The Golden Shadow”

As you do Shadow work, you build trust and respect for yourself as your intuition sharpens. Here you will learn how to embrace the gifts we have been taught to fear.

Discover:

  • The roots of greed and power—encountering societal Shadow dynamics
  • How idolizing others can rob us of our own empowerment
  • Reclaiming your own authentic power, magnificence, and true divinity

Experience how even the most frightening parts of the Shadow can offer insights, strength, and emotional resilience

Week 4

Know Thyself: Exploring Entitlement, Wrath, and Envy, plus the Sacred Body and Holy Outrage

It can be difficult to claim true self-knowledge in a cultural system that emphasizes the outward and the material. Here you will explore common Shadow archetypes and how to deal with them.

Learn:

  • How to recognize and deal with a “Shadow attack”
  • The Victim and the Martyr—see and transform the Shadow sides in yourself and others
  • Embodiment—awakening through the feminine and sensual self

Develop a map of the universal forces at play in our survival and growth, and begin to navigate them wisely

Week 5

Learning to Speak Light by Moving from the Inner Self to the Soul and Working with the Mystical Traditions

Shadow work is a process of carefully uncovering the deepest truths of your soul. In this session, learn about practices and traditions that can support this transformation.

Explore:

  • Separating inner Shadow talk from the truth of the soul
  • What mystical traditions teach us about our essential selves
  • A Sufi embodiment practice for listening to our dreams

Draw lessons from mythology and mystical traditions throughout the world to support your journey

Week 6

Every Choice Matters and a Party for the Brokenhearted

We live in an era badly in need of Shadow work. Here Caroline and Andrew put forth what it will take for us to wake up, embrace our interconnection, and sustain the entirety of our world.

Discover:

  • Blind spots—what we don’t see when we move from inner work to uncovering collective Shadows
  • Happiness as a product of making wise choices from our heart and soul
  • The “Annihilation Festival”—an invitation to dance with paradox and alchemy

Frequently Asked Questions

The Shadow is that which is unknown to our conscious minds. It is natural and universal, capable of creation and destruction.

Within ourselves, the Shadow will show up as our unconscious patterns, addictions, motivations, and triggers. In many ways, it’s the force that runs our lives.

In the collective, we see the Shadow rear its head when greed, power, a lack of empathy, and a disconnect from the soul take charge in global dynamics.

The Shadow itself is not what causes harm—rather, it is our refusal to acknowledge the Shadow that leads to destructive behavior.

What we hide from ourselves gains inordinate power to shape our lives in ways we do not see or understand. The only solution is to bring the Shadow to light. Then we can understand the hidden forces at play in ourselves, in others, and in the world.

Working with the Shadow is perhaps the most important work of our time. You’re here because you’re ready for it.

Though Facing Your Shadow is built on the foundation of Caroline’s and Andrew’s separate teachings, this course exclusively focuses on the Shadow itself. Among other fresh offerings, Caroline greatly expands upon her work on archetypes to describe the different kinds of Shadows, both personal and collective. Andrew presents hopeful avenues for understanding and embracing aspects of the Shadow while also emphasizing the gravity of our collective spiritual crisis.
