Episode 158: Shadow Work Part 4: Nourishment

In this episode...

We’re moving on to part 4 of my shadow work series where I’m guiding you through the 7 alchemical stages of shadow work! In the previous episodes, I’ve shared Stages 1-5 and this week, I’ll be discussing Stage 6: Nourishment. Nourishment is about allowing yourself to be open to desire. 

To truly nourish yourself, it’s essential to go beyond meeting your basic survival needs and into fulfilling your deeper desires. Desire is the place where your soul’s passion for purpose, meaning, and fulfillment feels the strongest and most alive. When you live inside desire, not from lack or desperation but from recognition that the presence of desire is its own fulfillment, you stop depriving yourself.

This stage involves reclaiming not just ordinary desires, but also shadow desires—strong desires you’ve been resisting for a long time. Recognizing and fulfilling these desires is a crucial part of shadow work.

In this episode, I share how you can tap into the shadow desires you’ve been resisting, begin putting yourself first, and start taking action to achieve what you want most! 

Listen to The Nancy Levin Show: Episode 158 to learn how nourishment can support you on your shadow work journey.
