Local notes

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

"Your shadow asks, "Which head of the monster do you feed the most?" The shadow is a concept introduced by Carl Jung the influential founder of analytical psychology. By combating your own "dark side" you will be able to reclaim your own authenticity, imagination and soul."
