Our "shadow" is the collection of negative or undesirable traits we keep hidden—the things we don't like about ourselves or are afraid to admit: egotist, non-"PC" proclivities, forbidden sexual desires. But it also includes our positive, untapped potential—qualities we may admire in others but disavow in ourselves. Befriending the shadow makes fear an ally and enables us to live more authentically. It also automatically improves our interpersonal relationships, because we are freed from the need to project our own negativity onto others, and we become more acutely aware when theirs is projected onto us. David Richo looks for where the shadow manifests in personal life, family interaction, religion, relationship, and the world around is. He shows how to use the gentle practice of mindfulness to work with our shadow side, and he provides numerous exercises for going deeper. He is remarkably skillful at making the shadow concept not only easy to understand, but supremely practical for enhancing the quality of our lives.

Beneath the social mask we wear every day, we have a hidden shadow side: an impulsive, wounded, sad, or isolated part that we generally try to ignore, but which can erupt in hurtful ways. As therapists Connie Zweig and Steve Wolf show in this landmark book, the shadow can actually be a source of emotional richness and vitality, and acknowledging it can be a pathway to healing and an authentic life. "Romancing the shadow"--meeting your dark side, beginning to understand its unconscious messages, and learning to use its powerful energies in productive ways--is the challenging and exciting soul work that Zweig and Wolf offer in this practical, rewarding guide. Drawing on the timeless teachings of Carl Jung and compelling stories from their clinical practices, Zweig and Wolf reveal how the shadow guides your choices in love, sex, marriage, friendship, work, and family life. With their innovative method, you can uncover the unique patterns and purpose of your shadow and learn to defuse negative emotions; reclaim forbidden or lost feelings; achieve greater self-acceptance; heal betrayal; reimagine and re-create relationships; cultivate compassion for others; renew creative expressions; and find purpose in your suffering. The shadow knows why good people sometimes do bad things. Romancing the shadow and learning to read the messages it encodes in daily life can deepen your consciousness, imagination, and soul.

The child is the father of the man. -- Wordsworth The inner child, that vital but submerged part of the self thatconnects us to both the joy and sadness of our childhood, is a key to ourachieving fullest expression as adults. "This child entity," says our editorJeremiah Abrams, "is the self we truly are and have always been, livingwithin us in the here and now." This volume, a collection of 37 wide-ranging articles, defines andgives concrete reality to the abstract image of the inner child, revealing it tobe the unifying symbol of the self, a symbol that represents, accourding toCarl Jung, "the part of the human personality which wants to develop andbecome whole." The essays from depth psychology, literature, the 12-Step Programperspective, and other disciplines are woven together with Abrams'thoughtful commentary to address the compelling themes the inner chldbrings to our awareness. Many of the selections address very practicalobjectives. - Realizing the promise of the child within and living out its destiny. - Reclaiming the innocence, playfulness, and wonder of the child inadulthood. - Healing the abandoned or abused inner child and resolving oldtraumas. - Tapping the child as symbol for our creative energy. - Forgiving our parents. - Developing compassionate awareness to be a better parent. - Completing the deverse unfinished business of childhood.

Transpersonal Psychology concerns the study of those states and processes in which people experience a deeper sense of who they are, or a greater sense of connectedness with others, with nature, or the spiritual dimension. Pioneered by respected researchers such as Jung, Maslow and Tart, it has nonetheless struggled to find recognition among mainstream scientists. Now that is starting to change. Dr. Michael Daniels teaches the subject as part of a broadly-based psychology curriculum, and this book brings together the fruits of his studies over recent years. It will be of special value to students, and its accessible style will appeal also to all who are interested in the spiritual dimension of human experience. The book includes a detailed 38-page glossary of terms and detailed indexes.
