Publisher's Summary

"Why are the people around me so difficult?" "Why do I keep getting in situations like this?" Our shadow side, teaches Robert Augustus Masters, contains the emotions and desires we've disowned, neglected, or hidden from ourselves. If not skillfully worked with, it can easily direct our lives on every level.

With Knowing Your Shadow, this acclaimed psychotherapist and author shows us how to illuminate and wisely engage with the endarkened aspects of who we are. Join him to explore in depth the areas where shadow work can most benefit us, including:

  • Discovering and cultivating intimacy with the endarkened aspects of yourself.
  • Identifying and healing your core wounds.
  • Working effectively with anger, fear, shame, guilt, and other difficult emotions.
  • Understanding how your shadow influences those around you, often beyond conscious awareness.
  • Guided practices, meditations, and exercises for developing more authenticity and wholeness in your personal and workplace relationships, your sexuality, and your spiritual path.

Our moods and relationships often seem to have a life of their own. Knowing Your Shadow offers exceptional support for taking charge of your life at a deep level, providing expert guidance and instruction to discover and make wise use of what lies hidden or otherwise neglected within us. Learn More About:

  • Becoming intimate with your shadow.
  • Relating wisely to shame and guilt.
  • Ending your suffering by entering your pain.
  • Exploring the presence of your past.
  • Freeing yourself from your inner critic.
  • Working with fear, anger, and other darker emotions.
  • Bringing sex out of the shadows - how we eroticize our unmet needs.
  • The signs of spiritual bypassing.
  • Healthy spirituality.
  • Becoming intimate with all that you are.

    "Deep, practical, insightful"

    I've read and listen to a lot of books on spirituality and personal development. In that reading and listing I've often come across the concept of the shadow. It never seems like a subject I really wanted to look into deeply. Now after listening to this book, I'm enthusiastic about doing shadow work. Particularly helpful for me are the sections on the inner critic, anger, sex, and spiritual bypassing. I also really like Robert Agustus Masters voice and delivery. He talks clearly and expressively and as if he's just sitting in an armchair across from you discussing the matter off the top of his head. It's a very nice conversational style. This is the sort of book I will be listening to over and over again.

    Story
    "Powerful, profound, like being with an actual"
    If you could sum up Knowing Your Shadow in three words, what would they be?

    therapist but better than most. If you're like me you've been through 4 or 5 who just ask you what you did last week and nothing else. This is not like that, this is actual shadow work. The meditations for meeting your shadow in section 2 are great. And the song that closes section 2 out is so awful that after recovering from the initial shock of being immediately and spontaneously thrust back into your childhood with images of your overbearing [insert religion here] mom and all the shame and guilt and crap that entails, you won't be discouraged from doing shadow work on that too. Haven't listened to the rest, but I'm sure it's good.


    What other book might you compare Knowing Your Shadow to and why?

    Possibly Ken Wilber's early stuff, the stuff he wrote in the 80's before boarding the turquoise spaceship.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Section 2 Meditation where you stand outside the cave.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Knowing Your Shadow?

    Knowing my shadow, duh.


    Any additional comments?

    Nope.

    "Interesting, helpful but at times lengthy"

    I could not read the book in one go. It was interesting to try and do all the meditations, some of which I found very inspiring. Several times I lost interest and had to make myself pick up the book again to continue reading. Now that I am done I have the feeling, I have to start all over again... I guess it is a process...

    "Dissatisfied lacking content"

    Too many exercises and elevator music. Not for people whoo likes listening while driving. Visualizing certain scenarios makes me disengage quite often. The religious songs makes me want to slit my wrists. The long pauses during exercises makes me sleepy every time. That would be the reasons for finishing listening as I was asleep for 80% of the time.

    "Extraordinarily good"

    I learned so much. I felt I was in the hands of an experienced guide who knew the twists and turns in advance and spoke from experience , an insightful voice who led me to insights and knew the illusions we like to flatter ourselves with. Very hard, challenging work but a spiritual joy. Thank you.
