An Invitation to Accept and Love Yourself More Fully by Befriending those often Rejected "Shadow" Parts of the Self
A doll-making e-course about befriending our shadow, using tenderness and compassion to connect with all parts of ourselves. Flip dolls are two sided dolls connected at the waist. These two sided dolls have the capacity to capture divergent views of reality, dark vs light, joy vs sorrow, love vs alienation. In this course you will have the chance, through exploring and befriending your shadow, to discover hidden strengths within. And at the end of the course, your doll will represent and unite both shadow and light. And, important note, you do not need to know how to sew beforehand. This class is open to those at all levels of sewing ability.
This eight week course meets once a week for two hours. You have a choice of Tuesdays from 4-6 EST or Wednesdays from 2-4 EST. The sessions combine informal learning about the shadow from several different perspectives, making time and various prompts, tools and guides for inspiration. The course comes with an e-book that provides instructional videos on how to make a flip doll and lots of additional material to supplement what goes on in class.
There is also an option of self-directed participation, where you would have access to the e-book but not the Zoom sessions.
