Description

Each and every one of us has a shadow. Our shadow follows us every second of the day. It follows us from cradle to grave. It allows us to fit into and succeed in the world we live in. Oftentimes, we tend to repress our shadow into the unconscious. However, our shadow contains our strengths and power. It’s a necessary aspect of us as a whole.

Here at the Shadows Podcast, we face our shadows head on.

We understand that our shadows are products of our upbringing and obstacles we face. Hear how our guests discuss how they turn their trials and tragedies into triumphs and success stories.
