Event description

Description

The shadow is the part of us that we have split off from ourselves to make us more loveable, and more likely to belong in our communities. While splitting is a universal coping mechanism, if we are to live with full aliveness and to develop mature emotional / spiritual practices, shadow work is essential. And the more that we have split off from ourselves, the harder it is to live from soul.

It’s not easy to work with shadow because we’ve built expert-level defenses to protect our sense of who we are. So working with shadow usually requires the support of guides familiar with all of the wily ways that our shadows can hide, kick and scream.

Shadow work is also challenging because it encompasses our darkest impulses. Life is an ecosystem of both creative and destructive impulses. We simply don’t have a choice about whether to deal with our Shadow. It will either play out consciously or not. Genuine Shadow work is the humble attempt to bring light to these parts of ourselves so that we can consciously develop a balanced and vibrant personal ecosystem. And the great gift of deep shadow work is that often it is central to expressing our unique talents and genius.

Join us for this 3-day advanced shadow deep dive with soul-guides Steve and Melissa L.

Who are the facilitators?

Steve Seto is an intuitive coach committed to his spiritual path since 2001. The crisis from his divorce at that time was the catalyst to a deep commitment to understand the root causes of his suffering. He draws wisdom from chi gung, martial arts, meditation and emotional work.

Over the years, he has created a map of human experience rooted in a Soul First approach. He excels at helping others embody new ways of being, articulating the essence of their soul’s desires and intentions, and thus empowering others to live from their highest potential.


Melissa Lau is a leadership coach whose spiritual journey started in earnest after her father’s unexpected death catalyzed a deep period of exploration about her soul’s true desires while at the pinnacle of her Harvard MBA’s dream of a successful career in Silicon Valley.

She draws wisdom from yoga, the healing power of sacred spaces, and group systems philosophy. Her superpowers are asking beautiful questions, bringing clarity where there was formerly confusion, and weaving together insights across unexpected disciplines.


What are the logistics?

  • The retreat will be held at Hestia -- our private retreat center in Mount Shasta, CA. It's roughly a 4-4.5 hour drive from the Bay Area. We'll do our best to help arrange car pools to/from the Bay Area. (Alternately, you can also take Amtrak from Emeryville to Dunsmir, and we can help arrange a pickup for you for $40).

  • Closer to the date, we'll send out a survey to inquire about your dietary needs.

  • If you'd like to save on ticket processing fees, email melissa@hestiagrove.com

  • Shared accomodations will be on site at Hestia. You'll have your own bed in a bedroom potentially shared with up to 2-3 other people, and have access to shared bathrooms and the kitchen in the main house at Hestia.
