Fav quotes from this episode:

“Anywhere that fear is greater than your capacity to love, therein lies the shadow.”

“Shadow work is fun, but it’s not pleasant.”

“If you can embrace the personified shadow aspect in your lucid dream then that is a very powerful psychological integration.”

“We’re not forcing the mind to do anything, we’re just reminding it of the capacity it has”

 “Buddha’s always smiling and yet people seem to think that if spiritual practice is too much fun then it’s not working.”

 “The inner child is not childish, it is childlike, and being childlike can be a very joyful experience.”
