The purpose of the Leader Training is to prepare you to lead Shadow Work® groups. At this training, you will learn:
  • How to set a safe and efficient container for group Shadow Work®.

  • How to present information about group Shadow Work® in a way that creates safety and trust in your participants.

  • Group dynamics as they apply to a personal work seminar.

  • How to inspire and evoke emotion with visualizations.

  • How to help people get in touch with mature archetypal energies through the group exercises.

  • How to empathize with other people's pain and hold their wounded behavior.

  • How to negotiate financial matters, and other boundaries, with people who have wounds around money and boundaries.

  • Conflict resolution skills.

  • How to protect yourself from attacks against your ability to stay in control of the group and facilitate.

  • How to protect the participants from one another.

  • Techniques for defending the container from "container-busting" acts by a wounded participant, without wounding that participant.

  • How to use the principles behind the Shadow Work® Identity Wound processes in conversation: how to talk Tombstone, talk Predator, talk God-Split, and talk Good Guy-Bad Guy.

  • How to use music in a Shadow Work® seminar, and what music we use.

For training dates and costs, see the Calendar of Events.


Graduates of the Shadow Work® Basic and Advanced Facilitator Trainings who want one or more of the following:

  • To enhance their own personal growth, specifically by learning to employ the circuitry in the Identity Wound processes in ordinary conversation.

  • To learn about group dynamics as they appear in a personal growth seminar and how to recognize and react to "container-busting" moves.

  • To become accomplished Shadow Work® group facilitators.

This training draws people who have already done a great deal of personal growth work, including Shadow Work®, and shows by example what a richly loving and healing place a container can be. The Leader Training is recommended but not required prior to attending the Coaching Training.


After reserving your place in the training, you will receive the Shadow Work® Leader Training Manual. We ask you to study the manual before you attend the training. At the training, we ask only that you focus on learning to honor and love yourself as you participate in both the practice Shadow Work® seminar you and your fellow attenders will run and in the real Shadow Work® processes you and other attenders will facilitate for each other. After attending this training, you are eligible to begin the process to become Certified as a Shadow Work® Group Facilitator.


Unless you are 100% satisfied that this training provides you with immediately useful and practical tools for running a Shadow Work® seminar, we will, of course, refund your full tuition, no questions asked.


Maximum enrollment, each training: 8 persons (first come, first served).

Schedule: The training lasts six days. Daily sessions are 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. with a break for lunch. Full details in training packet sent to you upon registration.
