Lighting the Shadows (Embracing Our Shadow Selves)

Al shares insights from his own shadow work – the process of embracing the parts of ourselves we don’t want to see – and how looking at his shadow self revealed his own limiting beliefs, allowing opportunity to replace his limiting beliefs with empowering beliefs. Al will talk about how his “motley crew” of shadow identities turned out to be talented, beneficial elements of himself who were just being loyal to his negative, limiting beliefs. He’ll also talk about how another element of the shadow self is fear of acknowledging the higher self or empowered self and how to embrace all of our shadow selves.






Overview of Huna: Polynesian System of Healing and Growth

Huna teaches about the three levels of consciousness, the corresponding energy bodies, and the flow of life-force energy and how to use these to facilitate healing, joyous abundant living and spiritual growth. Not a religion as much as a spiritual system for living, Huna dovetails nicely with any religious beliefs and enhances self-help and self-improvement programs. Al describes this ancient Hawaiian/¬Polynesian magical system of shamanic healing and spiritual development and leads participants in several exercises applying Huna principles.
