You're invited to join us for a very special Academy event
The SHADOW Connection Personal Development Workshop
- facilitated by Joe Busuttil
Our shadow, formed long ago, contains all the parts of ourselves that we have tried to hide or deny, the parts we believe are not acceptable to our family, friends and, most importantly, ourselves. It is made up of everything that annoys, horrifies or disgusts us about other people or about ourselves. It holds all that we try to hide from those we love and all that we don't want other people to think about us or find out about us. As the great Swiss psychologist C.G. Jung says, our shadow is the person we would rather not be.
From its invisible home deep within our psyche, the shadow wields enormous power over our life. It determines what we can and cannot do, what we will be irresistibly drawn toward, and what we will do almost anything to avoid. It dictates our attractions and our repulsions and determines what we will love and what we will judge and criticize. Our shadow controls how much success we're entitled to create or how much failure we're doomed to experience. The shadow is an oracle that predicts all of our behaviors, driving the way we treat those around us—and how we treat ourselves.
But our shadow can only wield its power over us when we keep it in the dark. And instead of something to be denied, feared or rejected, the shadow has our most treasured gifts: the essence of who we are. When we bring light to the darkness, we find the fundamental parts of our true self buried inside—our greatness, our compassion, our authenticity. And as we explore this part of ourselves we most feared, we become free—free to experience the full range of our humanness, free to bask in our glorious totality, free to choose what we do in this world. Our shadow delivers us the blessing of our entire self.
When we make peace with our shadow, our lives transform. We no longer have to pretend to be someone we're not. We no longer have to prove we're good enough. We no longer have to live in fear. Instead, as we find the gifts of our shadow and revel in all the glory of our true self, we finally find the freedom to create the life we have always desired.

What they said about this Workshop when it ran last time...
"This is a fantastic opportunity to explore that side of you that you would rather hide - in a safe and nurturing environment. Joe will always invite you to challenge yourself and step out of that comfort zone in a way that supports your personal growth and enhances your awareness. A must do workshop for any hypnotherapist who is invested in their ongoing development." - Jillian Haynes
"I thought it was really good!" - Julee Johnson
"Really great day! Best things? Joe running it, how well the day was planned and how much space he gave everyone to work." - Nick Sutherland

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
There certainly are: to attend any Academy event you must be 18 or over. There are no exceptions.
Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?
Email Steve Carey on email@example.com; or call the Academy during office hours on 9532 4433.
Is my registration/ticket transferrable?
Yes. So long as a place has been paid for, we don't mind who attends.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
What is the refund policy?
If you let us know more than four days in advance we can issue a refund. If you don't turn up, you've still taken up a place so unfortunately we can't issue a refund or credit and you've done your dough.
The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?
Can I record?
No - not even if the presenter says it's OK. The reason for this is that at the Academy we often have demonstrations of therapy involving real people with real issues. While we absolutely trust you and know that you wouldn't allow such a recording to go any further, unfortunately we can't guarantee that everyone will be as responsible. So it's best that we make a blanket rule. We hope you understand!
