In this participatory workshop, we will carry out practical exercises to explore the aspects that we reject from ourselves (the shadow) with the aim of releasing the creative potential that they contain. The final goal is to embrace them and experience the power and fullness of feeling complete with what we are - both light and shadow. At individual and collective levels, owning all our parts and learning to contain them will favor more peaceful and fair relationships, since they will become an ally in the co-creation of a more compassionate and responsible world.

In the 90’s, she started organizing circles of women focused on awakening to the deep feminine aspect, whose qualities are interrelationship, the collective, unity, healing and compassionate action.
