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:

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.

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.
