Animal Play

Inside of us all, there are animal spirits. Some have quite a few of them. Some invoke laughter, some invoke curiosity, some invoke pain. Through a shamanic process, you will first discover your animal within who helps to guide you through this life. This will be done with a partner. After discovering and journeying with your animal, it will be time to eat in the jungle. All animals get hungry and unfortunately, or fortunately, some must be eaten. Who will be the predator and who will be the prey?

After playing and deeply embodying our animal spirit, we will shift energy towards the dark side of these spirits.

The dark side of existence: The shadow. Shadow games will happen, both with desires and fears, and we begin to play in the dark side of life, to the depths of our being. This can be scary and it can also be really exciting. Come with curiosity, Come with Fear. Come with Desire. Simply Come.

Interactive and Experiential parts

Almost the entire presentation will be interactive and experiential. I will set the context in the beginning by describing the animal spirits whom are often with us, and also go into a brief description of shadow play and work. Boundaries will be discussed, as well as needs and desires; discovering an individual’s “no.” I will lead the group through a laying down brief shamanic journey, where their partner will capture their animal spirit for them and blow it into their body.

From there, there will be a few rounds of being predator and prey, allowing the participants to experience what it is like to eat and be eaten.

Upon completion of playing and “eating”, I will transition the group towards the dark side of animal life, and start to introduce some shadow games that will be played.
Depending on the group dynamic and time, there are quite a few interactive and experiential exercises I will guide them through to more deeply release some of their emotional body, while really getting a feel for the darkness that is inside everyone one of us.
