The Shadow Effect : Illuminating the Hidden Power of your True SelfBook - 2010
The shadow is a part of the unconscious mind consisting of repressed weaknesses and base instincts. "Everyone carries a shadow," Jung wrote, "and the less it is embodied in the individual's conscious life, the blacker and denser it is." Now, three of today's most popular spiritual teachers join forces in this remarkable exploration of the dark side--the emotions and traits we are most afraid of and instinctively hide. When we reject or refuse to acknowledge this part of our nature, we become susceptible to those emotions and traits negatively impacting us. The shadow makes it presence known whether we want it to or not. The difference is that if uninvited, our dark side has the potential to hurt us and our loved ones at any moment, but by embracing our shadow we embark on a rewarding journey to wholeness.--From publisher description.
