From the Back Cover
'To honour and accept one's own shadow is a profound religious discipline. It is whole-making and thus holy and the most important experience of a lifetime.'
This powerful work from acclaimed Jungian analyst and best-selling author of 'He', 'She' and 'We' explores our need to 'own' our own shadow – the term Jung used to describe the dark, unlit part of the ego. Robert Johnson guides us through an exploration of the shadow: what it is, how it originates, and how it interacts and is made through the process of acculturation.
Johnson asserts that until we have undertaken the task of accepting and honouring the shadow within us, we cannot be balanced or whole, for what is hidden never goes away, but merely – and often painfully – turns up in unexpected places.
Robert A. Johnson is also the author of 'Inner Work', 'Ecstasy', 'Femininty Lost and Regained' and 'Transformation'.
