IONS April Meeting – Meeting the Shadow

Posted on: May 22, 2017

Saturday, April 7, 10 AM – 12 PM.

The topic in April is Meeting the Shadow.

Suggested Donation $5

Carl Jung wrote, “One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light but by making the darkness conscious.”

Shadow work is soul work. Becoming conscious of our shadow enables us to alter our self-sabotaging behavior so that we can achieve a more conscious, Self-directed life.  Our life becomes increasingly more authentic as hidden resources are tapped in which creativity and talents have remained hidden and unknown to us. In alchemical terms, shadow work is turning lead into gold.

Until we become conscious of our shadow, we see it only in projected form: in others.  This leads to much misunderstanding and strife, even war. The opposite of projection is integration.  Once the shadow is revealed, we find the great gift to our wholeness that it has held hostage until, through shadow work, we are willing to acknowledge and integrate it, allowing it to empower us.

In this IONS session, we will utilize simple and useful techniques to uncover our shadow and find its hidden gifts.  Please join us!

 What is IONS? The Institute of Noetic Sciences™ founded in 1973 by Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit research, education, and membership organization whose mission is supporting individual and collective transformation through consciousness research, educational outreach, and engaging a global learning community in the realization of our human potential. “Noetic” comes from the Greek word nous, which means “intuitive mind” or “inner knowing.” IONS™ conducts, sponsors, and collaborates on leading-edge research into the potentials and powers of consciousness, exploring phenomena that do not necessarily fit conventional scientific models while maintaining a commitment to scientific rigor.

The Caritas Center sponsors one of a global network of self-organizing community groups that study and discuss the work of IONS.
