The next Shadow Weekend will take place October 19-21, 2018.

During this powerful advanced retreat, graduates of the BreakThrough and Wisdom Years weekends continue their personal journey towards wholeness by taking this "next step."
Supported by weekend leaders and each other, they engage in the challenging work of uncovering and embracing their "shadows," the parts of their inner being that they have worked to conceal from themselves and the world - those that cause them shame and erode their sense of self-worth. By looking deep within and bringing the "shadow" into the light of day, they begin to recognize its silent influence on their thoughts, feelings, and actions.

As a result, they reveal and rediscover the potentials buried within... the golden qualities that have been held in check by the "shadow"... the strengths of character and individual talents that affirm their warmth and their worth.

When the Shadow Weekend concludes, each man leaves with a deeper understanding of and connection to his dark side, a greater ownership of his gold, and a fuller appreciation of himself. By doing his "shadow work," each moves further to restore his original wholeness.

“I didn’t want to look at myself because I was afraid
of what I’d find. But the weekend helped me replace
my fear with confidence and calm.
It was a powerful and positive experience.”
