Exploring our need to "own" our own shadow, this book guides the reader through an exploration of the shadow - what it is, how it originates and how it interacts and is made through the process of acculturation. The author argues 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 the author of "Inner Work", "Ecstasy" and "Transformations".
