Owning Your Own Shadow

Tuesdays

 

10:00 am - 12:00 pm

 

6 weeks

 

1/7/20 - 2/11/20

 

Prerequisites:

1. Any prior 8 week class with Ramaa 

2. Courage, honesty and a willingess to go within to places that scare you

This class is based on the Jungian psychologist Robert Johnson's book by the same name.  All of us have shadow areas in our psyche - qualities we are not proud of and prefer not to get in touch with.  Yet true self-love requires us getting in touch with, owning, and connecting with these parts with patience, honesty, and compassion.  Ramaa adds: this is not an easy course - to teach or to learn.  Attend only if you are willing to face your darkness because your shadows will be stirred if you sign up for this one!  Group size will be limited strictly to 15 and conversations will be open and unabashed and confidential within the group.

 

The class fee does not include the book.  Please purchase a copy in our store on the first day of class or bring your own.

Power of Receiving

Thursdays

8 weeks

 

1/9/20 - 2/27/20

 

Prerequisites: Rainbow Ladder

Many of us were taught the importance of giving, sharing, and serving without being told of the importance of asking, receiving and allowing as well. Giving without receiving reinforces duality and separateness between the giver and the receiver and creates imbalance in our lives. 

 

Join the group that will learn and practice various forms of receiving while studying the book “the Power of Receiving” by Amanda Owen. As we open ourselves to receiving, we build closer connections with one another and with the Universe by opening up to receiving the blessings from above.
