shadow work & masochism integration
Welcome to my little corner of the inner -webs. My name's Rachel. I wear many hats at the moment... I'm a writer and masochism integration mentor, whilst building towards a career screenwriting, producing and acting. I have a deep passion for shadow work, releasing our addictions to suffering and healing from pain mindfully, through the acceptance of our darkness. But also a visceral love of fantasy and story-telling, one of my favorite mediums for healing, expanding our awareness and nurturing compassion.
For anyone interested in exploring ponderings on conscious sadomasochism, bringing harmony to mental illness and the anatomy of pain, you can visit my articles page and The Conscious Masochist.
If you're looking for resources to aid you on your quest for spiritual understanding and a deeper connection to love, you can check out Áine's Library for a plethora of curated teachers, books and more.

RELEASING OUR ADDICTION TO SUFFERING AND EMBRACING
OUR DARKNESS FOR HEALING
An introductory ebook on the philosophy of conscious masochism. For those of us who identify with the term "masochist" to one extent or another, the shame, confusion and lack of self-trust we battle can be crippling. There are aspects of masochism rooted in mental illness, there are other aspects that are not. Finding our way through our masochistic desires while maintaining a loving, compassionate relationship with ourselves can feel like we're eternally treading stormy waters. If you're wondering how to define a new perspective on your own mental health, that doesn't shame you into thinking you're broken or wired wrong, then hopefully this ebook offers you some reassurance, comfort and validation. May the perspectives and tools in this book, gently guide you within to sift and sort through which parts of your masochistic nature feel true for you, and which do not. I believe some of us were born with a fondness towards masochism for a reason, and that if handled with self awareness, compassion and safety, it can be a powerful asset in our lives, not a hinderance. Befriending my inner masochist and tapping into her strength, softness and courage has been life-changing, so if that resonates with you, I invite you to approach this book with an open mind and heart, as well as a willingness to confront any discomfort that may be triggered.
