IMPORTANT: Shadow work is best done under the supervision of a trained psychologist or experiential therapy professional. There is a big part that needs to be done alone and can only be done by you, for example paying attention to messages from the body and your subconscious. But the help of professionals is invaluable in interpreting the symbolism in dreaming, guiding you through false beliefs and nailing the new state of adult consciousness so you can act as your real Self.
