Hatha yoga with various expressive arts to promote embodied mindfulness. Kind of like kindergarten for grown-ups.


Fully Woven’s Home Studio* – Autumn/Winter Workshops

Within our depths we all contain parts of ourselves that we instinctively and unconsciously hide. Jungian psychology understands these depths as our shadow selves and our life’s work is to see, accept, and ultimately integrate our shadows. The following workshops are a few ways we can gently trawl these depths and bear witness to our shadow self while still keeping our revelations private and unseen. What you reveal is up to you.

All workshops are offered in two parts with a week for contemplation between group sessions. We will open and close all workshops with meditation and gentle yoga. Artistic skill is not necessary and all materials are provided (you’re welcome to bring your own).

*Fully Woven’s Home studio located in East Van and the exact address will be provided after registration.


Shadow Cards: Reviewing Self

Shadow cards are a combination of journal writing and collage. Have you ever hesitated to write your thoughts down because you were afraid someone would read them?  How about covering your words with collaged imagery? This way you get the words out and onto paper while also keeping them to yourself. No one will know what your collage means unless you tell them.

Thurs, Sept 7 and Thur, Sept 21 from 6pm-8pm
Suggested contribution: $40 – $60 for both workshops

Shadow Map: Reconsidering Self

Have you ever created a timeline of your lived experiences? A visual memory-map of your life thus far. Did you include the routes not taken? Let’s take time to acknowledge those unlived adventures that may be influencing your life’s trajectory. By marking our lost opportunities we are essentially mourning them and welcoming them back into our being.

Thurs, Oct 5 and Thurs, Oct 19 from 6pm-8pm

Shadow Creature: Reclaiming Self

Part of the process of integrating the shadow self is giving them substance which we can comprehend and befriend. Making a creature is one way to give our shadow self form. Any material could be used to make these and they tend to morph in shape as you work on them. Maybe conceal some shadow cards or maps inside? These are covert creatures.

Shadow Lantern: Revealing Self

A shadow can only exist when a source of light is present. You are that source of light. You’ve done a lot of shadow work these last few months and now is the time to allow your illuminated wisdom to shine forth. Lanterns could be left blank or you could write words or draw symbols that are meaningful to you alone. Lighting your lantern will cast these images on the wall, thereby freeing your shadow to dance.
