Identifying, owning and transcending your shadow to move into higher states of spiritual consciousness.

Our shadow or dark side acts as a storehouse for the unacceptable parts of our personality which we pretend do not exist. As a result we repress these negative personal qualities out of our awareness and into the unconscious which results in blocking our spiritual path. To successfully move along the spiritual path to higher states of consciousness the seeker must have the courage and will to identify, own and integrate the unfavorable aspects of his personality. This lecture will cover the insights and techniques needed to do this valuable and important spiritual work.

Tony has been a member of the Theosophical society on and off for almost fifty years. He studied the ageless wisdom at the Theosophical headquarters at Adyar in India and attended the wisdom school at Krotona in the U.S. Tony studied Vipassana meditation under Gowenka in India and Buddhism and meditation techniques in the Himalayas under Buddhist Lamas. At present he specialises in the techniques of how to open the heart to move into higher states of consciousness.

Tony is a retired social worker who worked for various state and federal goverment departments in their employee assistance programmes. His main expertise focused on stress, burnout, trauma and critical incident stress debriefing.
