Press Release
Company Background

Giles Carwyn Giles Carwyn is a Certified Shadow Work® Coach and Facilitator, novelist, screenwriter, writing teacher, manuscript consultant, leader in the Asheville ManKind Project community, and father of two wonderful daughters.

Giles discovered Shadow Work® after participating in the ManKind Project’s New Warrior Training Adventure. He was amazed at how profoundly that experience changed his understanding of himself and his place in the world. On that weekend he embraced a life mission to co-create a world where everyone is seen, known, and loved.

That mission has led him to set aside his old career, beliefs and limitations to reinvent himself as a community leader, transformation coach, workshop presenter, and catalyst for lasting positive change in people’s lives.

As a writer, Giles co-authored the Heartstone Trilogy with Todd Fahnestock published by Harper Collins in 2006-2008. While living in Los Angeles he worked as script analyst for Phoenix Pictures. He has presented workshops on various aspects of the writer’s craft through Pike’s Peak Writers and Delve Writers. His study of the human shadow has transformed the kinds of stories he writes, infusing them with a psychological sophistication, compassion, and optimism he never had before. He is currently working on a historical King Arthur screenplay and a series of middle-grade books about children who find four magic hats that allow them to solve their problems by changing the way they think.

Beyond his resume, Giles is also a man who has struggled deeply in life. He doesn’t expect anyone to take off their masks and share their heart with him, unless he is willing to do the same with them. Giles has struggled with recurring depression, failed relationships, financial turmoil, reckless self-endangerment, self-sabotage, addictive behaviors, family strife, and unfulfilled dreams. He found his way to Shadow Work® through a desire to heal his own wounds and provide an opportunity for others to do the same.

Shadow Work® has been, by far, the most effective tool he has discovered for understanding and letting go of the things that no longer serve us and envisioning, embracing, and integrating new ways of being that are more joyful, effortless, and empowering.

What coaching clients have said about working with Giles:

Giles followed the twists and turns of my psyche with clarity and the utmost respect, guiding me along my path to more trust and freedom. I've been amazed at how much has been shifting in my inner world since the coaching session. I didn't expect that one session could untangle so much old stuff. I discovered hidden parts of myself that have been inhibiting my desire to move forward. I was surprised by their willingness to transform within the atmosphere of compassion and respect which Giles created. It feels like stepping out of a snarly swamp into a sunlit clearing. — Sally Miller, Asheville, NC

As a fellow certified SW Coach, I was impressed by the flexibility and flow Giles exhibited when coaching me. There was no time when we seemed stuck. The results were significant for my personal growth. — Alan Fischer, Gainsville, FL

Giles Carwyn's Shadow Coaching helped me recognize and begin to transform some of my most challenging and troubling inner voices. Months later, I'm still working with and deeply appreciating the tools he offered as a means for continuing growth and insight. — Aaron Brown, Denver, CO

Giles has written articles for the Shadow Work® email newsletter, of which he is the editor. He lives in Asheville, North Carolina, and enjoys ecstatic dance, outdoor adventures, strategy games, intimate conversation, and laughter.
