Shadow Work

Inner child healing, subconscious rewiring of neural pathways.

Somatic Healing

Release blockages and stuck emotions from the body.

Energy Work

Become a certified Reiki practitioner and become your own healer.

The subconscious accounts for the 95% of consciousness. That is to say, we are only aware of 5% of our thoughts, and the other 95% are unknown, in ‘the shadow’.  This shadow side is the part of yourself that you cannot see clearly, or likely at all. Stemming from a young age (primarily 0-7 years old) the shadow is formed of the conditionings, traumas and repressed emotions accumulated in the human experience. The naturally occurring parts of ourselves that we were told to be unacceptable by our culture, society, teachers, peers.
The shadow can appear as:

Unconscious Patterns

  • toxic impulses

  • addictive habits

  • repeating same patterns

  • attracting same dysfunctional relationships or situations

Emotional Dysregulation

  • Emotional outbursts

  • Aggression; passive aggression

  • Fear, anger, anxiety, panic attacks, depression

Destructive Tendencies

  • Self-sabotage

  • Possessiveness

  • Manipulation

  • Abuse

Psychological Dysregulation

  • Ego-centric delusion

  • Dissassociation

  • Excessive daydreaming

Rewire your Subconscious,

Live Deliberately

Embark the exhilarating adventure of shadow work. Become the personal detective of your life. Unravel the mysteries, embrace the messiness.

But let's be real, this journey is more than just a wild ride. It's a transformative experience that holds incredible significance.

Imagine reclaiming your conditionings and turning your challenges into strengths. It's like channeling all that energy to become your own secret weapon, to work for you — rather than against you.

When you learn to harness the power of your shadows — Your greatest obstacles become your greatest assets.

It might sound like a familiar idea, but clichés exist for a reason – because they reflect an undeniable truth.

Are you ready to rewrite your story and unleash your hidden potential?
The adventure awaits.

“illume has been a life-changing experience for me. I had no idea what kind of energy I had stored in my body + this program allowed me to unfold that hidden energy I didn’t know was there. I am so grateful for Rio sharing her wisdom + light with us + am excited to continue on my own journey with this work.”

“Rio’s Intro to Shadow work class was a gentle, yet powerful introduction to meeting our unconscious wounds. The class left me feeling refreshed, deeply relaxed and with a new found confidence that I have the ability to heal some of the darkest aspects of myself. Rio’s ability to hold space for transformation, even (and especially) at a distance, never ceases to amaze me.”

- JANEBee Keeper

“If you're curious about shadow work and want to give it a try, Rio de ki's workshops are a great choice! She creates a really welcoming space to learn, get into your element, and walk away with value gained from the experience. It's a great balance of intensity and comfort, so you feel pushed to try something new and challenge yourself without feeling too vulnerable or put on the spot. It was great to celebrate the full moon with like-minded individuals and take time out to do something special for myself.”
