After several years of exploring this concept we now have our first batch of professionally printed journals on order and they will be arriving in about ten days time! These journals are designed to support you in exploring the archetypes and allowing your shadow sides to speak. The journals are based on the four archetypes, The Sovereign , The Warrior , The Magician , The Lover and allow space for you to explore a particular issue by encouraging each of these four parts of you to speak. Each journal comes with a book mark that contains guiding questions to help you to get in touch with each of the archetypes in turn and to ensure that this part of you has been fully heard. The journals are wire bound, A4 sized and cost £15 each. If you would like to order one please email me on mariannehillshadowwork@

This piece that Rod and I have written explains the key differences, and gives you some idea of what our Healing The Shadow training involves and what a Healing The Shadow session might look like.

This post gives an introduction to the Lover archetype. The Lover is an aspect of ourselves that we all have inside us.
