pixie lighthorse goldmining the shadows
Pixie Lighthorse is a writer, artist, and Earth Medicine educator living a spirited life in the rural outskirts of Central Oregon with her family of prayerful wildlings.
She is the creator of nearly forty online programs working with specific animal totems to heal the soul’s early wounds, offer witnessing in community and move participants into active self-healing practices following the rhythms of the seasons and Earth.
Teaching e-courses in animal medicine for seven years led to her Earth Medicine education program, SouLodge Earth Medicine School, a holistic training ground for budding and established eco-healers. She has been practicing and leading indigenous-influenced ritual and ceremony for over twenty years.
Observing the magnitude of prayer aversion held by those traumatized by controlling religious systems, Lighthorse set out to gently invite timid and avoidant readers to reconnect with Spirit on their terms. Raised without religion, (but not without it’s cultural imprints), she has been in fluid dialogue with the spiritual realms from an early age.
Goldmining the Shadows helps you access qualities of your personality that went underground when they proved to be unacceptable to your caregivers and culture. “Shadow” is the term for these discarded aspects that inform your life. Becoming familiar with your shadow reveals lost innocence, gifts, and hurts seeking healing. Working with your shadow effectively breaks repetitive cycles of suffering.
Digestible, yet powerful, this book explores the ways shadow expresses in your life, how to engage your shadow to heal generational patterns, and how consciousness breaks the repetitive loop of suffering. This book will help you prioritize your healing while cultivating empathy, self-forgiveness, compassion, improved communication, and a broader sense of how our shadows work together to create great harm in the world. It’s purpose is to prime you for an ongoing, healthy inner dialogue with internal and external damaging influences so you can begin the process of liberation and restoration.
