What does it take to Dance with your Shadow?
 
Surrender. Acceptance. Acknowledgement. Experience. Vulnerability. Release. Surrender. Acceptance. Acknowledgement. Experience. Vulnerability. Release. Surrender. Acceptance. Acknowledgement. Experience. Vulnerability. Release.
 
and so on.
 
It’s a tender process, one that requires you to dredge up your deeply rooted fears, vulnerabilities, anxieties and sources of Shame. It asks you to face up to your fears and to speak them out loud. It asks you to recognize your fear of consequences and act anyway.
 
It asks you to take a leap of faith in the pitch black of night
 
Not knowing if you’ll fly, fall, break, burn, be reborn ..
 
All of the above, more, or nothing at all.
