Presentation: Immunity to change and shadow work
Immunity to change by Robert Kegan and Lisa Lahey is a powerful tool for cleaning up, dealing with our dark side, relationship problems, in other words for shadow work. The immunity map clearly shows why some goals cannot be achieved, because of this immunity, an equilibrium between what we want and what we must do to manage our fears. People need to develop in order to achieve their most difficult goals, a technical change is not sufficient. But probably they need to clean up their shadow as well. During the process of filling the immunity map, there are some validation questions: the goal must depend on me. What if it doesn’t? What if I can’t help? I propose to use the 3-2-1-0 shadow process to continue the map, even if it seems that the goal doesn’t depend on me. This will lead us directly to find introjections as big assumptions. Then, in combination with Kegan and Lahey proposal of conducting smart behavioral tests, integral meditation will allow the deep observation of the assumptions, making them become objects of awareness rather than beliefs that have us. In this workshop, there will always be parallels between the classical immunity map, with an example, and this version more oriented towards shadow work.
About Marie-Claire DAGHER:
I am a scientific researcher interested in the growth of people and organizations. I have translated « Immunity to change » and « Integral Life Practice » to French. I am committed to transferring my knowledge to others in workshops and online programs. French speaking people deserve that too. In particular, I want to marry the most useful techniques I have ever found in over 20 years of cleaning up, to achieve the most synergistic beneficial effects.
