'Meeting the Shadow' is a valuable anthology of insight into the aspect of shadow in all of our lives. With contributions from authors as diverse as the eminent mythologist Joseph Campbell to screenwriter/author Michael Ventura, this collection of writings provides a wonderful introduction to the concept of the shadow, and how it works in our relationships, creativity and sense of self. I especially appreciated the diversity of the authors and their various backgrounds. Each writer has offered a view of the shadow from their own unique perspective, giving the reader a true overview of how Jung's concept of the shadow can be recognised and interpreted along the many different paths we walk. The bibliography and list of contributors' work in the back of the book is a wealth of resources for further exploration. I cannot recommend this book enough!
nothing ever mirrored the soul in the bare as this book.... i have to face and accept the devil that really is me. The rational of the weaknesses or is it really the boundaries of this mortal body.Being a fijian it still talks to me about me.... bula!
