Breakthrough Groups for Women

Deep Healing, Shadow-work, Empowerment

 

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.

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.

Safety & Vulnerability in Intimate Relationship: Nicole Fegley interviews Robert

My Approach

My approach is intuitively integral, working with body, mind, emotion, and spirit through a spontaneously structured mix of cutting-edge psychotherapy, coaching, bodywork, emotional opening, shadow-work, and relational and spiritual deepening. All of this is conducted in the spirit of becoming more intimate with all that you are — high and low, dark and light, masculine and feminine. There’s plenty of rawness, plenty of revelation and deep opening and breakthrough, plus a sense of safety that’s solid enough to provide a powerful container (both crucible and sanctuary) for whatever work needs to be done. Areas covered include:

  • Facing and making wise use of your shame
  • Coming fully alive, including emotionally
  • Softening without any loss of power
  • Both embracing and protecting the girl within
  • Stripping your anger of its aggression without robbing it of its passion
  • Deepening your courage
  • Connecting head, heart, and belly
  • Fully embodying your femininity
  • Bringing your shadow (whatever you’ve disowned in yourself) out of the dark
  • Facing and working through your core wounds
  • Dream exploration (using dreams as portals for healing and awakening)
  • Shedding your armoring without abandoning your boundaries
  • Freeing your sexuality from the obligation to make you feel better
  • Getting your inner critic off your back
  • Cutting through your fear of your raw femininity
  • Cultivating healthy challenge
  • Developing more transparency
  • Finding a source of strength in your vulnerability
  • Relating not from your conditioning, but to it
  • Deepening your ability to be in truly healthy relationships

The Strongest Aphrodisiac is Connection: Nicole Fegley interviews Robert

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.

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.

Next Women’s Groups

Authentic shadow work isn’t some clean-cut, antiseptic, or merely intellectual undertaking, but rather an inherently messy labor, as intense, unpredictable, and alive as birth. It eventually necessitates wholehearted entry into everything that we are, including what we dislike about ourselves. The dirt can’t be avoided, nor should it be. In fact, it needs to be appreciated and known without gloves, or else it won’t become fitting soil for our emergence.
