Maintaining Our Authenticity in the Workplace – March 11, 2020

Out of an abundance of caution regarding group meetings, Oregon ODN has canceled this meeting. If it is rescheduled, we'll let everyone know! Thank you for your understanding.



Imagine a workplace that celebrates our authentic selves. That joyful, creative, expanded part of us that needs no walls nor masks.

Crazy idea, isn’t it?

Who is that self, anyway? And what prevents it from expressing itself every day? How do we reunite with it when it’s missing?

As a shamanic practitioner, Lyn helps people restore their authentic selves. We all have a pesky sidekick called The Shadow that stands in the way of our own self-realization. We sometimes interact through our shadow self and engage with the shadows of those we work and live with. We also have created an adaptive self who has learned to fit in and get along, but has masked our true selves.

The term “shadow” comes from the psychologist, Carl Jung. In the shamanic traditions, being your authentic self is known as “walking in your power.”

In this time together, we will define both our authentic, adaptive, and our shadow selves. We will learn to see them in others as well. And we will learn ways to protect ourselves from others when they are in their “shadow.”
