Certified Shadow Work® Group Facilitator, Certified Shadow Work® Coach
Fairfield, Iowa, USA
Linda has degrees in education and in consciousness studies. As a management consultant and trainer she has taught communication skills, conflict resolution, change management, and leadership skills to all levels of management.
A native of South Africa who grew up during the apartheid era, one of Linda’s favorite professional assignments was helping leaders in the business sector prepare their employees for the challenges they would face in the new South Africa. Years before the political transition, she ran staff training programs for economically disadvantaged black South Africans, addressing the gap that the political system had created educationally and socially. The most important aspect of this work, for her, was to help people build a powerful sense of self-worth that would enable them to benefit from the political changes in the society.
Linda believes that human beings have an innate capacity for growth and healing. Her love of people and her warm, empathic, vibrant personality make her a natural at facilitating transformational work. She loves using the powerful Shadow Work® tools to help people create the changes they want in their lives.
In addition to facilitating Shadow Work, Linda and her husband Jim have been certified by Rich and Char Tosi to lead A Couples Weekend, a transformational weekend for couples. They have helped many couples take their relationship to a new level of intimacy and connection, both through the weekend workshop and through in-person and online couples coaching
“Linda is clear and articulate, and very much at home with Shadow Work® and its tools. She is welcoming and approaches people with a sense of appreciation for who they are. She seems able to sense people’s concerns and feelings and is able to respond to situations as they arise in a helpful way. She is able to be present to others and hold the container for them for extended lengths of time. Her passion for this work is evident. I feel very safe doing Shadow Work® with her, both in individual and group settings.” — J.G.
