In this talk Doug and Catherine discuss the topic of ‘monsters in the closet’, a.k.a. the shadow. They look at how the ego is formed through early trauma, and how it calcifies through additional conditioning via the family and society-at-large, creating areas in our lives that we are unable to meet. They explain how we can address these unconscious blocks and the benefits of undertaking this work.

This coming spring Doug and Catherine will be in Europe. They will be spending the month of May in the UK, and will be teaching at Watkins Bookstore in London and will be running a workshop at the Body, Mind, Spirit Festival. They will also be leading a 10-day somatic retreat on the topic of Karma, Womb and Transcendence in Wales.
