9780062504227: Owning Your Own Shadow: Understanding the Dark Side of the Psyche

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".

About the Author:

Robert A. Johnson, a noted lecturer and Jungian analyst, is also the author of He, She, We, Inner Work, Ecstasy, Transformation, and Owning Your Own Shadow.

From Library Journal:

The shadow in Jungian psychology is the unconscious dumping ground for undesirable characteristics of personality. "Owning" the shadow--accepting it as part of one's self--is seen as the first step toward wholeness. Using examples from history, mythology, and religion, Johnson, author of Inner Work ( LJ 7/86) and Transformation ( LJ 8/91), offers a tour of the shadow, showing its origin and features, and demonstrating how and why it bursts into consciousness when least expected. Returning to the subject of his earlier work We ( LJ 2/1/84), the author reveals how experience of romantic love may lead to awareness of both positive and negative aspects of the shadow, and how integrating the shadow into one's personality can be a challenging religious experience. This clearly written, thought-provoking work is recommended for academic and public libraries.
