Happy December to the Light of Insight Community! In this episode, I open up about the last couple of months.
I was in a rut and doing shadow work. Shadow is the parts of self we reject, hide, and feel insecure about based on what we learn through family, peers, media, society, etc. Doing shadow work is at times an intense process because you’re confronting the parts of yourself you don’t like.
While working through my shadows, I needed to balance this difficult inner work with something that would be joyful, so dance was the medicine. Yes! I started taking dance classes again and it has been such a mood booster and a way to get out of the mind and into the body.
When was the last time you did something that brings you joy or you have a passion for?
