Empower yourself by working with your shadows & your emotions
The Dark Journey
1:1 Somatic Shadow Work Session
This journey is for you, if:
(men, women & all genders are welcome here)
You often feel overwhelmed by your emotional waves
Relationships often trigger withdrawal response to intimacy or make you feel anxious and insecure (you either want to run far away or the absence of your person feels like literally dying)
You struggle with handling difficult emotions like anger, sadness, or shame
You want to fall in love with yourself & your body
Why The Dark Journey?
Dark doesn't mean anything negative.
It also doesn't mean shadow.
It is in the dark, moist soil where seeds are being planted.
In the darkness, women grow miracles inside their bodies.
In the darkness, we GROW.
In this journey, you will get to work with your shadows - unconscious behaviours, beliefs about yourself, and self-sabotaging patterns that you are not aware of to prepare your emotional landscape to plant new seeds for your authentic desires
Because our emotional well-being is directly linked to the cognitive process of thinking, unexpressed emotions like fear, guilt, and shame will have an impact on how we think, act and the way we are in relationships, work, and life. Every emotion that has not been fully expressed lives its imprint on the nervous system in the body. Through a somatic approach to the shadow work we are able to process suppressed emotions, and shed the light of acceptance on all the parts that we deem as ugly while working on regulating the nervous system simultaneously. In other words, you feel super safe and ready to open a wardrobe with your skeletons inside, dust them off and dress them up in fun clothes :)
Symptoms of suppressed shadows: procrastination, frustration, anger, anxiety, self-sabotage, low energy, living in denial, low self-worth, lack of boundaries, people-pleasing, extreme selfishness, over-controlling, sexual manipulation, intimacy blocks, experiencing shame &projecting shame on others, blockages experiencing pleasure

It’s not the DARKNESS we are afraid of
but the fear of feeling overwhelming sensations in our bodies (and yes, it includes anger as well as bliss, pleasure & love)
because in the darkness was the first time when we felt the beauty of unconditional love through sensations in our bodies when we were in our mother's wombs…
we are scared to open up our hearts and feel our emotions because we are scared that we will be separated from the source of love, again. This abrupt separation is often a cause of forgotten trauma that many of us are not aware of carrying.
But the body's implicit memory always remembers what the mind wants to forget.
Emotions are bodily felt sensations that help us navigate life’s quest to seek pleasure & safety and avoid danger.
When we are in our mother's womb our entire experience is about interoception - feeling sensations in the body.
We have access to an unlimited source of love and nourishment.
We feel safe and cared for.
DEEP, infinite DARKNESS - it’s all that surrounds us.
That’s all that we know.
Sounds yummy, right?
But then this heaven on earth is being disturbed by energetic waves that labour brings.
Someone we don’t know takes us out of this happy place, we can’t feel our mother's love, we can’t hear her voice or feel her body. It’s loud and cold out there. there is too much light everywhere.
Our little bodies feel over-stimulated. It’s INTENSE.
Then we cry because we want to come back to this safe place but no one understands us. We sleep alone in a cradle & no matter how cute it is, it doesn't provide the safety we long for.
Luckily, it’s all changing now with more women reclaiming birth on their terms which includes more connection to their babies throughout the whole process & more mothers are aware of their infants’ emotional needs but it wasn’t the case for most of us.
When our emotional needs aren’t met we learn that we don’t matter and that feeling love or any other emotions is painful. And again, you might not think that, but your body remembers the felt sense of EMOTIONAL ABANDONMENT.
So you shut this part of yourself down but you never stop wanting to come back to that safe and yummy feeling. You want it so badly, but you cannot allow yourself to have it.
I believe that this felt sense of heaven on earth (safety) in our bodies is something we truly long for but we just don’t know how to get there. This feeling of wanting to come back home keeps knocking on the door...
When we don't know how to regulate our emotions, and we are not able to return to safety, we are more inclined to sabotage our relationships, avoid intimacy, addictions (scrolling, overeating, drinking, and abusing other substances), indulge in meaningless connections, people-pleasing behaviour, overworking or even overdoing plant medicine ceremonies.
We are abandoning ourselves. It's difficult to relax, open your emotional body & feel
We keep looking for something we thought we had lost. We feel the void inside of us so we try to fill it with all the things that will make us feel better for a second but are damaging in the long run.
When working with clients 1:1 I am noticing that it is not easy for many to turn their focus on the interoception (feeling the body) which is crucial if we want to break those patterns and it is my job to guide you softly & gently to access the blissful sensations of your heaven on earth.
We go straight to the roots of the problem. It changes everything.
If you’re reading this and feel like something is missing, you can’t handle emotions well, and every breakup or emotional withdrawal of your partner leaves you devastated I want you to know that you’re not alone..Most of us are feeling disconnected from home without even knowing that..
And now, I want you to imagine how your life would look like if you could find this heaven on earth inside your body.
The safe anchor that will keep you at bay no matter what happens externally.
It’s something that you can absolutely touch through the body. These loving, blissful sensations in your body are there waiting for you to allow yourself to feel them.
If this is what you’re longing for & you’re ready to find your own heaven on earth sign up you are invited to embark on your Dark Journey.
