Less than three weeks ago, I had the privilege of leading The Shadow Experience Workshop at Kripalu. Although we had no idea when we originally scheduled The Shadow Experience, it is no coincidence that just a few weeks after this workshop ended and participants left the room dancing in a conga line, Harper Collins arranged a special e-book sale on Debbie Ford's final book Courage to honor the third anniversary of her passing.
In Courage, Debbie redefines courage as the willingness and ability to be totally real and authentic with yourself and others. She writes that the greatest act of courage is to be and own all of who you are -- you without apology, you without excuses, you without the masks to cover the truth of who you are -- and to let that you be fully expressed and seen by others.
As we went through The Shadow Experience weekend, I watched as people let down their guards, spoke their truth, made peace with their "dark," and reveled in really getting on a cellular level that they are worthy and deserving of owning their magnificence, beauty, brilliance, and confidence.
As I watched people transform before my very eyes, I was once again humbled by the genius of Debbie Ford and all of the amazing gifts she left the planet. All of her work is designed to support people in loving and liberating themselves. In The Shadow Experience and The Shadow Process, she created an experience for people to feel safe to be all of who they are -- the light and the dark -- and to share all of themselves with others. And in Courage, a book that Debbie wrote in the last two years of her life, she gives people a roadmap to becoming unrecognizable to themselves.
When Courage came out in hardcover, Debbie said this about her new book:
"I know that this book will change your life.
I know it will inspire you, make you laugh and make you cry.
You will wind up on the other side having more love for yourself
and more courage and confidence to live your life to the fullest.
I know you will have an opening of your heart to the
wounded part of you that has given your power away
to so many people, places and things. I know that
you will have a new understanding of divine confidence
and unstoppable courage. I believe in this book 100%.
I feel like it was given to me and now I give it to you."
Debbie Ford was a creative genius who left an amazing legacy to this world. So however you can partake in her legacy -- whether it's reading the book Courage, experiencing The Shadow Process, hiring one of her impeccably trained Integrative Coaches, or using one of our transformational tools -- I invite you to do so because Debbie's body of work has changed and continues to change the lives of those who experience it.
