The creation of the shadow mask is about revealing hidden and denied aspects of your self through the mask making. These hidden parts can range in expression from sorrow to anger, weakness to strength, joy to wisdom and all shades in between.
The basic concept is built upon Jungian discussion of the shadow present in all of us. These shadow aspects manifest in our lives as struggle and suffering, that is often projected on to family, neighbours, community and the world.
In owning our shadow self, we discover healthier avenues for negotiating conflict, new dimensions of compassion, and greater understanding of our deep interconnectedness.
Awareness of our total self, both dark and the light, allows us to make more conscious choices about our own behaviour.
