“The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are” - Carl Gustav Jung

What is shadow work?

Shadow work brings hidden parts of a person’s unconscious into their conscious awareness. Ultimately, it is about releasing patterns of being that have often inadvertently held a person back.

If any form of real change is truly desired in life, then we must go deeper within ourselves and take a new level of responsibility for managing our inner world. And this is what shadow work supports us to do i.e. to play in new and, initially, unfamiliar ways that can have an expansive and transformative impact on our life.

People often feel stuck in some way or they might sense something just isn't sitting right within them. Often when they take the time to look deeper, they start noticing a repeated pattern - perhaps another job not going to plan, another boss or employee that doesn't appreciate them, or in their personal lives unresolved drama in relationships or perhaps ongoing issues and stress about money. Maybe it's just an overall continued feeling of dissatisfaction in one or more parts of their life even if they are also aware that on paper there is nothing really to complain about. 

Shadow work is for all these types of things; indeed it is a critical part of adult development as it begins to separate out fact i.e. what is really true right now, from the beliefs, meanings, narratives and stories that shape our identity.

Shadow Work Made Simple

The intention of this course is to demystify shadow work, make it accessible to more people, sharing the fundamental principles and a process to enable them to start exploring and practising it within all aspects of their life. While it can be an uncomfortable process, shadow work is now widely recognised as being a critical component to emotional maturity. Here are just some of the benefits:

  • It builds rapid insight into the self as well as the development of lifelong self-reflective capabilities.

  • It transforms relationships including those that are challenging and even dysfunctional.

  • It builds resilience, self-accountability and self-responsibility.

  • It enhances the capacity to move to more expansive levels of self-awareness

Be aware that emotions like sadness, anger or shame are not uncommon when we take a deep dive into what made us who we are.

So if you are to embark on this process, it's important to be relatively emotionally robust, with a healthy dose of resilience and perseverance. 

If you do have any underlying mental health concerns or if you are feeling really hesitant it might not be the right time to do this work.  At the very least it is recommended you discuss this with a health professional prior to embarking.

That said, we are greatly looking forward to sharing this work with you and shining a light on those long-neglected parts of you that make up your shadow.

"10/10 LOVE IT. exactly what I was after… It made me understand myself more. It made me see the stories that I tell myself. It made me take accountability for my life and my feelings.”


GP, Auckland, NZ

“HUGE impact. I have more understanding and tools on how to manage my ego, my personal and professional relationships. This has been life changing. I have also included journaling and 10 minutes of meditation into my everyday morning routine because of this course. This has helped sharpen the skill of self-observation and awareness.”


GP, Auckland, NZ

“Much greater awareness of my response to others and understanding this in order to consider what this may mean and how I could do things differently. Also understanding that when people are upset at things I do or say, why might that be, so they can adapt and change rather than simply having the emotions attached.”

Helen Milner

Creative Brand Strategist, Wellington, NZ

“It expanded my knowledge and depth of understanding of the work and of me… the impact?- enlightenment and joy at coming back to do this mahi and continuing to do it.”

Anna Mulvaney

“Each time I work through these exercises they have more impact and I understand them more. I seem to be able to let go of a bit more of my inhibitions, I’m not sure if this is because I’ve done some of the work before or because I am doing it by myself rather than in a group.”

Tania Ng-van Paddenburg

“Very useful post the in-person course as I found it supplemented my learning. The online version gave me time to digest, think, process, pause whilst having the in-person course experience to draw from.”
