My work with Robert has been deeply transformational. The way he is able to create and hold a safe space for people to release trauma held in the physical and emotional body is incredible. Those who are willing to trust him will be able to heal core wounding and live a more full life. Shamanic psychothearpy is what I would like to call it, but I honestly don’t even want to box him in to such a label. His awareness of subtle energy is beyond words. I have been in therapy my whole life, and I have never experienced anything quite like what he’s got. The tools and insights he offers do not create dependency on him, but allow deeper freedom to rely on ourselves. (Lila DeLieto)


The 5-day Women’s  Shadow Work Group: Wow!! Robert offers an astounding container. It’s a deep dive into the un-confrontable with clarity and liberation following. With all of Robert’s skill and laser-like insight drawn from a lifetime of experience, I moved through a sad, dark “settling for less” place and found diamonds in that mud. I know where I am going now. Still into the Mystery but with greater ease and the knowledge that all of who I am is welcome, wanted and possible. (Zoe Alowan)


Robert Augustus Masters is a true master of integrated consciousness. I think of him as a Ninja Shadow Tracker who guides us effectively into our territories of resistance, pain and avoidance so we can navigate our way with honesty, full embrace and ultimately with love for our Whole Self. Robert brilliantly facilitates safe space with clear boundaries, profundity, respect, compassion and non-judgmental awareness for each person’s process. This is quintessential work for the times we live in and paramount for real transformation to take root and blossom. Robert’s work is foundational for becoming the most authentic human being we can be and is at the heart of the spiritual quest. (Sianna Sherman)

Uncommonly effective work for women ready to fully face and work through whatever’s obstructing their capacity for true empowerment.

All kinds of issues and concerns — ranging from the deepest trauma to the seemingly trivial — will be addressed through a dynamic, creative mix of psychospiritual guidance, bodywork, emotional opening, spiritual disciplines, dreamwork, and group practices.

The group will also feature cutting-edge shadow-work.

There’s a part of us — all of us — that contains what we don’t know or don’t like or deny about ourselves. And what is this part? Our shadow. To the extent that our conditioning is allowed to run or operate us, it is our shadow. Trying to get away from our shadow keeps it in the dark, but turning toward and becoming intimate with it (and its roots) is a profoundly beneficial, inherently empowering process.

Becoming intimate with our shadow frees us from being controlled by it. If we are to live fully, we must bring our shadow elements out of the dark and integrate them with the rest of our being. Doing so will be at the very heart of this group.

We’ll have plenty of time for consistently deep work, plus time for spiritual deepening practices.

The group will be small, being LIMITED TO 8 OR 10 WOMEN ONLY, so that there will be ample time for everyone to receive in-depth attention and work.

LOCATION & TIME: Ashland, Oregon (unless otherwise noted). Ashland is nestled in the far south of Oregon, a few minutes north of the California border. The group begins on the first day at 2pm and ends the last day at 1pm.

TUITION: US$1300 (except for Ojai and Maui groups). Nonrefundable deposit of US$400 required. Contact us to arrange payment. Full payment is due 5 weeks prior to the group.

FOOD & LODGING: This is not included in the tuition. Contact us for a list of possible places to stay.

PREREQUISITE: Previous in-person work with Robert, or with Robert in the form of a half hour Skype session (if you’ve had previous experience with psychotherapy or counseling). Please fill out our Client Application and read Requirements for Working With Me.

REQUIRED READING/LISTENING: Robert’s books Spiritual BypassingTransformation Through Intimacy, and Emotional Intimacy, and audio program Knowing Your Shadow. Also strongly recommended: Robert’s book To Be a Man.
