Through the shadow

´Everybody carries a shadow, and the less it is incorporated in the conscious life of the individual, the blacker and denser it is.´ (Jung) The term ´Shadow´ refers to those aspects of our personality that remain outside of the conscious sphere, yet continue to exert their influence, the more destructive and disturbing the more we refuse to recognise their existence, so it is very important to be able to identify and integrate our Shadow parts. In this workshop, through the use of disturbing and evocative music that facilitates the transition to a more suitable state of consciousness, we will meet our Shadow in the darkness of our inner cave, so that it accompanies us on our journey no longer as an enemy but as a guide, leading us to the Light of consciousness, the first fundamental step towards integration.


Having always been passionate about mythology, folklore and spirituality, I graduated in 2015 in Clinical Psychology at the University of Milan-Bicocca with a thesis on the Psychology of Religions, and I am currently attending the last year of the specialisation school in Transpersonal Psychotherapy at the ITI (Integral Transpersonal Institute). For years I have been working as an educator with minors and families of various cultural backgrounds and as a psychologist in Milan; on several occasions I have had the opportunity to use music as a therapeutic and transformative tool, both in my profession and by participating in Music Therapy and Art Therapy workshops.
