Encounters with the Shadow is an in-depth introduction to Jungian Shadow work and forms part of Jung Platform’s series of introductory courses on Jungian psychology.

One of the richest of Carl Jung’s contributions to our understanding of the human psyche, is the idea of the Shadow. Those parts of our own being which are threatening to our ego, and which so often act independently of our wills. 

Learn to work with your own Shadow aspects in this course.

They are the parts of ourselves or our groups which we prefer not to face, but which continue to spill into our lives nonetheless. The Shadow embodies those parts of ourselves over which we, and others, keep stumbling. 

The Shadow is not evil, as such. Though it may bring great harm to self and others, even as it may also bring great healing energies to bear.  Shadow work is not only an invitation to further the integration of our split off components, but to improve our contributions to our families and our society.

Course Description

Everybody carries a shadow and the less it’s embodied in your conscious life, the denser and darker it gets. The shadow is subject to modification as we grow and develop. The more it’s repressed, isolated from consciousness and never gets corrected, the more likely it is to burst forth suddenly in a moment of unawareness.

Led by master teacher, James Hollis, this course is suitable for both a beginner- and experienced level of understanding of Shadow work. The course is ideal if you want to learn more about the concept of the Shadow and how it is relevant in our daily lives. It also offers guidance and tools to become more conscious of Shadow aspects within ourselves, groups and other individuals.

After completing this course, you will:

  • Have a greater understanding of Carl Jung’s concepts and theories related to the Shadow Self.
  • Better understand how the Shadow partly functions outside of our awareness.
  • Understand how the Shadow can be destructive; but also constructive and healing
  • Have gained practical perspectives and tools to work with your own Shadow aspects
