  • Our scared and arrogant ego has an enormous capacity not to know itself, says Esalen Institute psychotherapist David Richo The shadow self, the dark side of the personality, is hidden in the psyche Others often see it, but we do not As Jung says, The shadow is the negative side of the personality, the sum of all those unpleasant qualities we like to hide, together withOur scared and arrogant ego has an enormous capacity not to know itself, says Esalen Institute psychotherapist David Richo The shadow self, the dark side of the personality, is hidden in the psyche Others often see it, but we do not As Jung says, The shadow is the negative side of the personality, the sum of all those unpleasant qualities we like to hide, together with the insufficiently developed functions and the contents of the personal unconscious The shadow also displays a number of good qualities such as normal instincts, appropriate reactions, realistic insights, creative impulses, etc Richo has written an enormously useful book in which he introduces the reader to the conscious persona and the subconscious shadow Unlike other practitioners, he includes conscious but negatively perceived traits in his definition of the dark side, plus undiscovered or unused positive traits By helping the reader to befriend the shadow self instead of projecting it onto others in dysfunctional or destructive ways, the author performs a profound service, freeing emotional and creative resources through which we can manifest brighter, healthier lives P Randall CohanOur 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 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 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

    This is an excellent book if you are seeking to understand yourself better, particularily your dark side, and how you can integrate that into your life and thus find wholeness. I would highly reccommend this book to those spiritual seekers out there who want to embrace the darkness and find their own light. Afterall, it is through the darkness that light is found. If you don't believe me, try reading shadow dance.

    What a book! It wanders everywhere, and provides an excellent example of raising our admiration for outstanding literature anywhere, elsewhere. Take for instance, the topic evil, nowhere is a definition of evil laid out in Mr. Richo’s book; however overlooking this fact, a regrettable omission by the author, we read the following:“The presence of goodness does not permanently eliminate evil but removes it in the moment. Our work is to acknowledge good in spite of evil, not instead of it. We [...]

    I've always enjoyed the way the author blends practical wisdom, spirituality, psychology, and specific questions to enable a deeper examination of his topics. In this case, looking at our shadow (the dark and the light) and the influence we give it strikes deep cord. By learning to face our shame and celebrate our positive, the book shows a path to greater awareness and presence with our true self. A great read

    Our dark side has been called our personal "shadow" by C.C. Jung. It's everything about ourselves we do not know, or refuse to know: egotism, forbidden sexual desires, unpopular proclivities. But it also includes positive, untapped potential, those qualities we admire in others but can't see in ourselves.The challenge is in accepting ourselves all the way to the bottom: admitting and holding rather than denying and burying our arrogance, our self-centeredness, our will to coerce others, our sham [...]

    En mycket bra bok om skugga (Jungiansk psykologi). De egenskaper och behov vi gömmer för oss själva och sedan retar oss på när vi ser det i andra eller beundrar i andra.David Richo är psykolog och han använder sina kunskaper och erfarenheter tillsammans med en stor dos buddism och en gnutta andlighet så ger han en genomarbetad bild av alla aspekter inom skuggarbete.Hela boken är fylld med övningar som verkligen går på djupet.Så om du "hatar" rasister, vänster/höger-extrema, homo/h [...]

    This book tells you what most other books do not: what is the positive AND negative shadow side of the human being. To bewhole, it's important to recognize/identify that part of ourselves which may have been swept under the rug since childhood.It is fascinating. At the end of each chapter, Richo has suggestions of exercises to try or things to notice to becomebetter acquainted and better accepting of your shadow. Alsohe describes how to identify the shadow in others.

    An Empowering understanding of the 'Shadow Archetype & Aspect of Human Psyche'. The pioneering work of Carl Jung explained in a lucid way to new & aware readers alike, by eminent JUNGian Scholar & Depth Psychologist himself David Richo.His grasp is deep and style evocative. His writing is poetic in appeal and grounded in concept. An excellent reading for those interested in learning & practising Depth Psychology.

    Definitely parts that I liked in this book.His style is to write a sermon/lecture type section, and then add a practical application to that. I found myself more drawn to the practical "in practice" sections than the lead-ins.I marked many sections to go back and think about, so I think this book was well worth my time.

    Deep, challenging and enlightening. This is not an easy book - but provides a strong structure for taking on the work of our negative and positive shadows. An attempt at even some of the exercises is useful and eye opening.

    I found this book very helpful in understanding the shadow qualities in myself and other people. I liked the discussion of the positive shadow compared to the negative shadow. There were plenty of examples, too.

    Thus far, I can see positive possibilities for healing through examining and accepting our self all the way from top to bottom. Definitely more to come. I look forward to deeper thought on this subject.

    David Richo brilliantly explains our shadow selves, how to identify that hidden aspect and, best of all, to understand those dark, dark selves provide rich insight into what we want to ignore yet what will also free us. Powerful, compassionate, read it.

    Anthony
    This book brings clarity in being mindful which is understanding and accepting of one's self. Shadow Dance put very complex theories into plain English for the reader. This is a great book to start in the path of greatness and love.

    Peter
    terribly organized. repetitive. missing the more jungian mythological mystical mien of other shadow books like the terrific one by bly.

    Rabbit Paint me like one of your 19th century gothic heroines!
    Review to come (hopefully) soon! :D

    Robin
    well written book on the Shadow. What we can learn from it, use it and the gifts it has to offer.

    Nice read. Pretty interesting stuff in here, he has an interesting style of writing too.

    Shane
    This is another one for a class. Addressing your dark side, Darth Vader, sort of thing. You have to journal and practice. It is allright so far.
