Observations On Pathworking/Shadow Work/Active Imagination

Recommended Posts

@Starlight you are welcome, I remember this thread, just reread it myself now.

It is amazing how stuff like this and the understanding I had of it back then has changed so much.

 

It is kinda synchronistic that you brought it up, as I'm currently pondering issues that share attributes with these issues.

Although shadow-work and individuation are two quite different processes, they share many core principles, just in reverse.

 

Individuation is after all about creating more space for being ones own conscious self in the world.

While shadow work is about bringing forth the unconscious stuff and dealing with its dead weight.

Both have merits and rewards, but also costs.

This is a very interesting comment, @Arch. I'd heard a little about individuation but I think I must have assumed it was the other side of the coin to shadow work, and that you couldn't have one without the other.

Does individuation go through a different process?

I'm wondering if this is my next step after the shadow work, you see. I've brought stuff up out of the shadows and now need to integrate it and just lighten up the energy a bit.
