Shadow Work Residential Weekend

Friday 29th November - Sunday 1st December 2019
Dartmoor, Devon, UK
Would you like to:

...experience greater awareness of and  freedom from the old patterns that hold you back in your life?

...gain more control of your emotions (rather than them controlling you)?

...heal emotional wounds from the past?

...access more of your vital life force energy?

...find the 'real you'?


Shadow work can:

...offer a safe space where all parts of you are welcome, where you can transform issues at the 'root' and find the 'gold' in even the darkest places.

...be an intensive, experiential and often cathartic process which allows you to explore all parts of yourself deeply and, above all, safely.


...empower you to explore and change limiting and destructive behaviour patterns, and understand and heal situations that 'trigger' you, so that you can live life more fully and with more choice.

If you have a "yes" for any of this...​

then join us this Autumn for a weekend Shadow Work journey in the heart of Dartmoor...

What you will experience...

The weekend will be limited to 8 participants. It is open to everyone, whether you are completely new to this type of work, or have loads of experience of diving deep into self development... or anywhere in between.

Each participant will have the opportunity to do their own in-depth piece of facilitated 'process work'. The weekend will also include various individual, pair and group exercises to build trust and safety, prior to the process work. Participants find they gain a great deal from being part of the circle, from  the initial 'container building' exercises and self reflection, and from witnessing and supporting others in doing their work.

You will be well cared for; all food and accommodation is included in the price.

Accommodation is in simple shared rooms, or you are free to find and book your own accommodation nearby if you prefer. The group room in which we will be working is equipped with a woodburner, and there is also a separate comfortable sitting / dining room room with its own open fireplace. We will be surrounded and held by the centre's six acres of grounds, and by the beautiful wild nature of Dartmoor beyond.

We will be nourished throughout the weekend by meals provided by our chef Sophia Young. Her vegetarian and organic food is delicious, nutritious, and cooked with attention to detail, care and love!

The weekend is facilitated by Tim Hall and Melanie Ward. We have both completed our training in Shadow Work; this weekend is our Certification Weekend - our final assessment in order to become fully qualified Shadow Work Facilitators and as such our teacher and mentor John Kurk will be present throughout.

What past workshop particpants say:

"Tim and Mel are skillful in creating a kind, open - and most importantly - safe space to explore, cry and laugh together. I’ve never experienced healing quite like it.”


"I was struck by the skill, sensitivity and integrity of your holding and facilitation, and the way that you work together, each of you bringing your own skills and personal qualities, which weave together in a fluid and complementary way."


"Due to Tim and Mel's caring and masterful facilitation I was able to bring out and release deeply buried pain from childhood. I look forward to a brighter future less clouded by shadows from the past."
