Andrew is so excited and thrilled about the next installment in the series, as he has spent 2 decades working with the very often challenging, yet deeply rewarding practice of 'Dancing with the Shadow'. This will be a potent and powerful opportunity to transform, heal and integrate the shadow within ourselves that very often as yoga practitioners we shame, repress, ignore or deny... Worse still Push away and wish it was not a part of us. We aim to kill it and destroy the very part of us that comes bearing gifts. Pure gold, disguised as black heavy lead. Through the alchemy of Yoga we learn to embrace, own, be intimate and dance with the shadow in the Divine Lila (play) of Shiva and Shakti. It can be the very catalyst to our greatest growth, evolution and emerging into the Brilliant Radiance of our Light. We ALL have a shadow and very often the darker it is, the Brighter our Light... It is nothing to be ashamed of... Rather it is seeking to be acknowledged, integrated and yoked with all the many aspects and facets of ourselves so we can feel ultimately whole. After all this Union and Wholeness is what our Yoga is truly about. Not separation and disconnection but unification and Oneness.
We as teachers are the role models for our students, and believe me when I say there are many of our Beloved students who are battling and at war with their own shadows, shrouded in shame. Come spend this time learning the steps, practices and intimate ways to dance with the shadow, play with its elusive and often covert nature, and utilise this pivotal stage and platform, once veiled in darkness, to dive deeper into your Light.
There is nothing to fear ... For the Great Goddess Kali Ma teaches us that in that darkness there is only Pure Love and Light awaiting it's revelation. If only we can look deeply into Her eyes.
The Divine Light is waiting for you and so are your students... Everything is waiting for you...."
