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.

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.

Deep work on the shadow

This is not a book to listen to while commuting or for leisure. It is a deep book working on the darkest sides of our being.
Listen to it slowly, in small segments
Do the meditations and work prescribed
Keep a pen and paper for taking notes

By doing so you will cultivate the wisdom and enlightened guidance in the book. Otherwise you will get bored and drift off track, and you will have no idea of what is going on.

Thank you Robert
This was enlightening

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.
