In Shadow Work®, we explore the inner landscape and discover the gifts available in our shadows. It is a way to become more and more who we really are, and to learn how to live more fully. Shadow Work® is especially devoted to providing a setting that allows us to explore and evolve safely, with choice and without pressure.

Changing Behaviour in High Stakes

Dialogix

Using David Kantor’s theory of Structural Dynamics we explore the powerful, but invisible forces which drive our face to face interaction when the stakes are high.
