Introducing Yugen's Essential Course: 
The Unconscious: Shadow

This 5 Module Course provides a profoundly safe and welcoming space to develop an empowering relationship to your unconscious and shadow work as relates to your own growth, as well as facilitating growth and change for your clients. 
This course is a pre-requisite towards the Yugen Coaching Program. 

On this growth journey You will walk away with...

A Deeper Understanding of Self
Expand your context yourself and of psychological phenomenon. As you develop a relationship to the unconscious and apply it to yourself, the world opens to you as does your Self.  
Access to a Growth Community
Through a private Facebook community, you will have access to previous and current students, as well as mentors and guides who will be there to answer questions. Through this community we recommend partner exercises.
Shadow Work Skills
Learn tangible and hands on skills that you can apply in your sessions with clients immediately. We specifically dive into Projection, Parts work, and Introjection. In addition, we explore the principles of shadow work as a transformative and welcoming context.  
A Developmental Boost
Learning and exploring shadow work leads to a boost in your personal growth. As the coach transforms, the coaches' clients transform as well. This boost is invaluable in the field and something to cultivate ongoingly. 
Learning as life changing

Custom designed tools to boost your life this month. 

During this course, we’ll focus on diving deep into the human unconscious. You can apply these skills to any area of your life - love, career, relationships, health, money, family, purpose, pleasure, and other such things...

When you apply these tools to your life your inner world opens up and more possibilities and understanding come in.  

If you want a safe space to be vulnerable, open, and 100% you... If you want support from Cat and Shelby and encouragement from our loving community...and if you want to provide deeper work for your clients…

How to bring this in with clients, the pitfalls of this work, additional "how to's" , how shadow shows up in relationships, and vision for the future and reflecting.

How much time will I spend on this training?
Outside of recorded video time, we recommend you spend 2-3 hours a week, completing assignments, and engaging the community platform. This typically looks like a total of 3-4 hours a week, over the course of one month.

Of course, the more you put into the program, the more you will get out of it. And, we know that life events come up, weddings, funerals, and all the in-between can come up during this training. The great thing is, you will have all of the recordings and materials, at your disposal forever! You can always return to the class at a later date and we update the curriculum when we have new material.
