I am sharing Teal Swan’s video where she discusses what the shadow is, and how to begin to do shadow work. The shadow aspects of the self is a topic that I am interested in exploring for a variety of reasons. When someone passes through the stages of grief it can provide opportunities where we question what we believe about others and ourselves. Often what we judge about others are those aspects of ourselves that we suppress or deny. We can choose to accept those shadow qualities and integrate them into our experience in a way that can be useful if done in a thoughtful manner.
