The shadow is a trickster!  From its invisible home deep within your psyche, the shadow wields enormous power over your life. It affects everything from “A,” your feelings about aging and abundance to “Z” the zest you have for life.  It determines what you can and cannot do and how much love, happiness, joy, and money you will create or repel.  It impacts everything from how you celebrate your birthday to how you parent your children…or even your decision to have children.

But remember, your shadow can only wield its power over you when you keep it in the dark. That is why we need to talk about it!

Since May, 2013, Kelley Kosow, the CEO & Program Leader of The Ford Institute, has been leading Shadow Talk, transformative group coaching sessions on a variety of topics listed below. These coaching sessions are now available for purchase. You can get your choice of ONE session, THREE session, or FIVE sessions. You will receive a recording of the session (MP3) as well as a worksheet and Shadow Challenge (PDFs).

When you bring the light of awareness to your shadow, your life transforms. You no longer have to pretend to be someone you’re not. You no longer have to prove you’re good enough. You no longer have to live in fear. Instead, you can take all that energy to create from “A” to “Z” – everthing you have ever wanted!
