Pathways to the Self, Healing the Self through Shadow work

PATHWAYS TO THE SELF online solo available

Healing through Shadow work

If you are someone who is seeking a more meaningful, deeper and passionate way to life than this may be for you. 

Pathways to the Self is a committed journey to explore your beliefs, habits and life choices and how you can rewire them so they have a more joyful and fulfilling outcome.

This course is suitable for you if seeking to deepen your connection with life, with yourself, in relationship, with friends, family as well as in your profession.

If you are a counsellor, psychotherapist, body-worker, healer, life coach, doctor, nurse, complementary therapist or social worker, here is an invitation to deepen your client work. 

This course offers an opportunity to all who seek healing, stillness, empowerment and connection and a much improved relationship with life.


When you decide to take this journey we start at a time that suits you, or the group:                                                                          

You will learn much about yourself, how you block your energy, your joy, creativity, vitality, and will discover through deep self-enquiry, how you unconsciously defend due to past painful experience and stop yourself from what you most want from life. You will receive support in letting go of painful memories and bad habits and make new choices that lead to a more desirable, empowered and fulfilling life. The Energetic approach to life I offer you here has received almost 100% positive feedback in being truly transformative. This is what some of the participants said.

"This course has been deeply nourishing and life changing for me. I arrived at the course with low batteries, not knowing exactly how to change my life to feel more joyful. The programme turned out to be a great composition of valuable teachings, group process time and doing exercises together. That it was held over a period of nine months gave me time to integrate and align my life towards happiness and authenticity. I do understand myself better - and be more kind towards me and others as a result. To have such a dedicated teacher was a learning and blessing in itself. I felt in a very loving and safe space with a good structure. It has been a great time of personal growth. Great to have the feeling of being able to create the quality of life I want to live!"  Jutta S, Germany

"I am very, very glad, and grateful that I took the step of coming on this programme. The benefits have been great, and the power of the programme as an intense learning experience is more than I expected. I think you could certainly call it life changing. I think it must be rare to have such a very strong, safe, supportive arena for healing and change as this group is. I think this is primarily due to the experience, strength, focus and wisdom of Maria, which I am awed by.

At first it seemed like the tasks (like all tasks) would be a slog, but I now see it as a welcome invitation to again 'check in' with myself, to identify with the 'benign inner witness' which the programme encourages us to develop. Maria is so professional and compassionate. The course is a wonderful mix of spiritual philosophy, energy consciousness and psychological development. Basically, I recommend this course wholeheartedly and 100%!" Gael L. Aberdeen

The programme is set and grounded in the teachings of the Barbara Brennan school, as I studied with her for 6 years. We wil also use a particular personality map to engage with, heal and resolve the places in us that are defended and locked away to keep ourselves protected. We will work with the power of Intention to steer our life and choices into the direction we want it to go, releasing willfulness and aligning to our Core Self.

We'll work with aspects of Core Energetics, Body Mind Psychotherapy and Pathwork, draw from the world of energy medicine (chakras, energy therapy), and I'll also engage you with the spiritual wisdom of the Findhorn Community.

This rich journey promises to strengthen your container for life and your grounded, empathic authentic compassionate Healing Presence, to better meet your personal needs and stay present with todays global challenges.

Some topics we will spend time with:

Grounding into the Self.


Inner listening, inner stillness and the divine.

The Self, unresolved trauma and how this engages us with our Life Task.

Celebrating the Self and the unique gifts that each one of us brings to this world.  

Creativity, Meditation, Inner listening, Subtle energy consciousness.

Weekly online sessions tend to be intense and full and you'll probably find that you need time to integrate and have some breathing space. 

Online buddy group meetings:

In between the personal session times you will have reading and writing tasks. You will meet with a peer-group online to connect, help each other to stay focussed on the journey, as well as deepen with each other.The exact day and time for the online gatherings will be determined by your group and are usually 1,5 hours.
