Embracing Your Shadow


By Skye Vonn




Winter is the time of year for rest, symbolically and in real-time. The time when the cold and freezing become the healing that sets the soil for Spring and Summer rebirth. The significance of the Autumnal Equinox for the person walking the spiritual path is the time of year where we activate our new cycle of growth. As we become silent and rest we are allowing space for our greater vision to emerge.


As the days get shorter and the nights grow longer, we descend into the darkness of the night and face our own inner darkness—the darkness within, i.e. the ego and the subconscious—to prepare for the birth of the Light within, celebrated at the Winter Solstice.

The heart of the spiritual practice is internal and is usually invisible and unnoticed by everyone else. By enacting the spiritual with a physical ritual, we can both recognize and make concrete our spiritual process that is part of our reality as a person on the spiritual path.


As you turn inward and fall in love with the truth of who you really are,
you become whole, despite the brokenness.”



I encourage you to take some time on September 22 this year to acknowledge your life cycle and spiritual path. In doing so, you are honoring, not only your own growth and light within but the ancient wisdom that has served our health and wellness for thousands of years.

What People Are Saying


"I can't wait to be more effective and conscious in cultivating love and kindness in the way I relate to myself and others. Control dramas are inner demons I have been trying to come to grips with for so long now. I have internalized my childhood tormentors. But now I have a path to set myself free." -Marisa

"I'm loving these sessions, some have made me laugh as I see things in myself and others. It is especially helpful in dealing with other people, for example, negative people that seem to drain your energy, in a way that keeps both sides balanced and calm. Very helpful insights into myself and others, thank you Dr. Jody Janati." -Melissa

"This course is great, and I am getting a whole lot out of it. I do think that each of the control dramas describes our defense tendencies, like what we do under pressure, and yet, it's not something we have to do. Being aware of the motivation for our defense can help us let go more of our mistaken need for control, and I like how she describes that so well. I also like knowing how to defuse it when caught in it." -Shelley

"I have found this course to be very enlightening indeed. I intend to put the learning into practise as much as possible in all of my interactions with others, I know that is easier said than done! It is hard sometimes when you recognise unhealthy behaviours and habits that you have been engaging in yourself. However, it is even more difficult to stay stuck in these patterns as they rarely bring about a good outcome. I am very glad that I purchased this course and am grateful to the author for putting it together." -Fiona

"Great course and I know what I learned will help me in future conflicts." -Marggie

"I really love this course. I will re-read it when needed. It seems very helpful. I would like to be more diplomatic and this helps a lot. I tend to react quickly and blurt out things and it's not always the best thing to do." -Jeannie

Behind the social role you assume, behind all your pretensions of being a good citizen, a fine scholar, a great person of faith, politician, parent, or whatever you claim to be...behind this facade, there is a certain element of an unreconstructed bum, not as something to be condemned or wailed over or ashamed of, rather as something to be recognized as contributive to one's greatness, and positive aspects in the same way that manure is contributive to the sweet fragrance of the rose.
