Shadow Work by Julius Jooste

Shadow Work was created as a way for me to convey the insights I've had while finding my voice as a career creative.

The term "shadow work" was initially coined by Dr Carl Jung. He proposed that the mind had the ability to take what we were most ashamed of and hide it out of sight of the conscious mind in space referred to as The Shadow.

Jung went on to explain that much of mental anguish stems from the tension brought on by suppressing one's shadow. He proposed that addressing, processing and integrating one's shadow, would result in a richer, more authentic way of experiencing what it means to be alive.

It is often considered that when Jung asks us to integrate our shadow, he is asking us to accept and come to terms with the femininity that resides in each of us.

I’ve created each piece to be used as an awareness cultivator while undergoing periods of change and uncertainty.

May it be your beacon as you navigate through times of transformation and growth.
