Episode 19: About the psychology of your shadow, with Sherene Vismaya

It would have been remiss to explore the theme of shadow this month and not bring in a Jungian psychoanalyst. So you’re in for a treat everyone… meet Sherene Vismaya. Before I ever got personally connected to Sherene, her book “Surviving Saturn’s Return” was my bible as I was approaching age 30. Sherene is a psychoanalyst, an astrologer, a tarot reader, a movement teacher, and a woman of extreme wisdom. I learned so much hearing her share about how we can approach and slowly uncover our shadow. In fact, I was so comfortable with her that I wound up sharing some very vulnerable things about my own personal relationships. If you’re on a journey to bring your unconscious up to the light, this is an episode for you.
