What is Inner Work?
Inner work is the process of self-discovery from what we do know to what we don’t know about ourselves. It is a deeply personal and psychological journey that looks different for everyone yet there are common threads that we can all relate to.
You actually have everything you need to do this within you, everything. We are each a world, actually a universe of possibilities. In order to make effective change in the outer world, we have to make effective change in the inner world we are in.
Inner work is the bridge between what we know about ourselves and what we have yet to discover. We will begin our journey through the experiences of reflection, observation, contemplation, and analysis in relation to the inner work. You will be provided with useful tools for understanding, vocabulary, and new concepts such as ego attachment, shadow reactions versus conscious response, and the hero and heroine’s journey.
We will reflect on our current obstacles, challenges, and tensions, asking ourselves, ‘what am I avoiding?’ Continuing, we will explore our personal resistance, how it feels when we are resisting, and discover other empowering choices we can make. Questions such as ‘How does one live a proactive life versus a passive life?’ will be discussed. Noticing what we notice is key to this module, as well as stark honesty within ourselves.
You will choose a situation that has created chaos, trauma or pain in your life and review where you project this onto others. Tools provided will help facilitate pathways to unravel and unblock to release. Observe how you hold on to the past and why it’s important to let go with understanding.
Both an analysis of who you have been and accountability around what you are willing to take responsibility for. Did your ego fail you? What is your identity without it? We explore the vulnerable topics of surrender and the unknown. This is a powerful look into death and rebirth.
Visit powerful moments of connection and clarity of purpose. You will dive deep into thoughts around what your life is about, why self-care is a necessity rather than a luxury, and how you may be of greater service. Learn how perspective can change your negative thoughts into positive ones. The ascent is inevitable and the journey towards inner light inspires new vision.
Learn about authenticity, archetypes, what brings you joy, and what inspires you to serve towards fulfillment. Explore your core values and envision the guiding principles of your life. You are creating a new mission from a vision of knowing and deep listening.
Every journey is complete through a process of integration. This ritual both closes the recent chapter and opens a new path forward. Together we will review where we have been and assess the terrain ahead while co-creating new possibilities through sharing our visions and intentions from our new sense of being.
WHAT PREVIOUS INNER EXPLORERS ARE SAYING
This course has been life-saving. I say that in respect towards how I treat myself and those in my relationships. Discernment, self-knowledge, objectivity, re-birth, have helped me approach crucial conversations and life choices in a new light.
The Inner Journey helped me rise to the occasion of my dharma; becoming the teacher and leader I've always known in my heart that I am meant to be.
The Inner Journey gave me access to aspects of myself (and my unconscious patterns) that I didn’t realize were inhibiting my ability to be free. Exploring these fundamental areas of our human condition with like-minded souls, and being witnessed in our authentic vulnerability, is essential for anyone seeking true liberation from what no longer serves. Ciela, Sarah, and everyone at Joan of Sparc provides an exceptional container, and a feeling of safety and support, to successfully navigate these vast and essential inner worlds.
