“The more of your dark side that you can embrace, the more of your light you receive,” explains Debbie Ford, workshop leader, consultant and faculty member of the Chopra Center for Well Being. Ford explains that to live an integral life, a grander whole, you must first blend all the aspects of who you are – the light along with the dark, the positive along with the negative. “We are a society that is taught to point our fingers in blame, to blame our parents, to blame our schools – I think that blame is us not doing our own work.” Something as devastating as the end of a marriage can actually be a spiritual wake-up call-an opportunity to liberate ourselves and transform our lives and turn ruin into renewal. Join Michael Toms and Debbie Ford as they focus on self-healing and self-discovery through the light and the shadow.
Ford is the bestselling author of The Dark Side of the Light Chasers (Riverhead 2000) and Spiritual Divorce: Divorce as a Catalyst for an Extraordinary Life (HarperSanFrancisco 2001).
