The Shadow Lives Within All of Us…
As the saying goes, “your pain has its own intelligence,” and this intelligence is the shadow. It is created when we reject, deny, or disown parts of
ourselves, our pasts, or our true actions. And the truth is, the more you try and reject or avoid these parts of yourself, the more they show up and throw you off course, sabotage your best efforts to change and hold your power hostage.
The first step to reclaiming your power is to face these dark and uncomfortable parts of yourself that make you the most human. Your pathway to feeling whole and complete can only be unlocked through understanding, integrating and learning how to work with your shadow.
Connor Beaton, the founder of ManTalks, has helped thousands of people around the world take their power back using this
impactful and proven system…. And now he’s bringing that wisdom to you in The Shadow Course.
Over this 8-week journey, you’ll take the first and most important step to integrating your shadow and reclaiming control
in your life.
You’ll investigate the origins of your shadow, why it’s there in the first place, and how it both protects and sabotages you…
So you can finally carve your path to freedom and actualize your potential… on your terms.
We Live in a Culture That Teaches Us Strength Through Suppression.
If you suppress your pain and sadness deep enough, avoid your fears hard enough and hide your insecurities long enough… you’ll achieve the strength and resiliency
to actualize your potential. This couldn’t be further from the truth.
Instead, suppression is what holds you back from moving in the direction that you truly want. It’s how your shadow takes hold of your life. It’s how it sabotages your career, your relationships, your health, your vitality, your sexuality, and your goals.
A few of the ways your shadow is sabotaging your life…
What to Expect 8 Weeks to Self Mastery Through the Gateway of Your Shadow
The Shadow Course will guide you through this process across 8 weeks of training, exercises, guided journaling and meditation. All students will have access to the course materials in perpetuity on our ManTalks training platform.
Understanding Your Shadow
What exactly is the shadow, and how does it impact your life? When does it take control over you and why? In this first module, you’ll be introduced to the concept of the shadow and identify how your past has shaped it.
Investigating The Origin of Your Shadow
Every shadow, has its own origin story and it continues to develop and grow within you over time. In this module, you’ll explore how the family systems and culture you grew up in — as well as the wounds that were created in that space — have shaped your shadow.
Reactivity, Rejection & Avoidance
You’ll learn how to identify the origins of reactivity, or when the shadow is in your driver’s seat and ready to hijack, so you can maintain your cool, your boundaries, and your goals. I’ll teach you about periods of “deconstruction” when the shadow is most active. You’ll discover how surrendering to them — instead of resisting them — can actually initiate you into who you want to become.
Meeting & Disarming Your Inner Critic and Saboteur
The Shadow personifies as your inner critic. In this module, you’ll learn how to confront your inner critic and have a constructive conversation with it so you can move from harmful self-loathing, to healthy self-evaluation.
Working With Your Anger
In this module, you’ll explore the four primary types of anger: Explosive, Implosive, Fused, and Foreign. By understanding anger, you prevent it from hijacking you during heated moments or situations. Your goal is to move towards Embodied Clean Anger — a space where you’re able to have grounded communication, and honor your boundaries as well as others’.
The Shadow In Relationships
You’ll identify the ways your shadow sabotages your relationships, through behaviors such as shutting down, becoming avoidant, getting clingy or feeling dependent. You’ll also learn how to move past sexual shame or disempowering fears that are blocking you from experiencing true intimacy and connection.
Leveraging The Shadow To Uncover Your Potential
Your shadow is a space from which you can derive motivation, creativity, inspiration and empowerment. I’ll teach you to understand how you can use its powers to work in your favor so you can heal your relationship with discipline and develop a devotion towards yourself.
Integration — Returning to Wholeness
To integrate and manage your shadow, you need to nurture your inner child, the part of your psyche that is still childlike and dependent. It’s also the gateway to healing any psychological trauma, dysfunctional patterns, and self-harming behaviors you may have developed growing up. Deep inside, your inner child is still reliant on the parenting that you received back then to guide them — and you — on how to safely function in life.
In the final module, you’ll learn how to parent yourself and resolve these issues of blame, shame and guilt that reside in your subconscious so that you can integrate your shadow. ascend beyond its harrowing grip, and return to wholeness.
Is the Shadow Course for You?
It is… if you want to get out of your own way and take the wheel. It’s not… if you want to continue avoiding the elephant wreaking havoc in your own living room.
Shadow work isn’t about canceling unpleasant emotions and skipping “negative energy” so you can fluff things up and stay
It’s a no-BS approach to confronting the harder and more uncomfortable parts of yourself… because you know that deep down inside — the obstacle is the way.
There will be resistance. And it will take many different forms as it tries to pull you back into your comfort zone.
The more you’re willing to overcome that resistance, the better control you will have over your shadow… and ultimately yourself.
I designed this program as a deep introduction to Shadow Work. You have the choice and free will to dive into it from any vantage point.
How deep you go and how real you get is entirely up to you…
But this is your invitation to come into the trenches with me. Give yourself the permission and space to share your struggles, your shames, and your desires. I want you to address what happened with mom or dad or anyone that was present in the dysfunctions that you experienced growing up.
You’re going to work on them so you can heal through them and let them go. And I’ll equip you with the foundational tools and practices you need to integrate your shadow after this program… so you can continue expanding your path towards self-mastery.
