After a month without challenges I felt like participating with the "Shadow Work October Challenge" by Mnomquah on Instagram. She has come up with a question or assignment for each day of October, related to working with shadow parts of ourselves. We start with checking in with ourselves by making a mandala: “who Am I” at October 1th and evaluating the challenge by making another mandala “Who have I become”. At the end of the month.
|Who am I|
Making the first mandala felt so great. It has been a long time since I have created something with my watercolors.
Of course everyone can do this challenge for himself and you don’t need to be on IG to participate. Mnomquah even insisted on the following:
“If you feel like any of the questions/tasks are pretentious, triggering in an unbearably negative way or too personal -- feel free to stop at any time into the process; share publically as little/much as you feel comfortable with.”
Reading this made me feel very comfortable to join in. I feels less obligated to finish this challenge or to post a picture each day on IG. I am planning on posting parts of this challenge on my blog and if you want to see more of it please check my Instagram widget in the right upper corner
