From the Author
Shadow work is putting the past to rest, with all its pain, sorrow, loss or regret, so we can get on with our lives and learn to live joyfully. I like to think of the shadow book as mystical therapy or a grief workbook. Because I borrow heavily from 12-Step programs, it is also a book of recovery. As with all my work, practical advice, psychology and mysticism peacefully coexist.
The phrase 'new age' is an umbrella term used to denote a whole range of interests including health and well-being, many forms of therapy and self-help, esoteric practices such as astrology and tarot, nontraditional religions and spirituality, concern for the environment, respect for nature and feminine wisdom. To some, it is synonymous with fluffy, feel-good nonsense. To others, it offers another way to look at the world. I am disheartened when reviewers feel the need to bash beliefs that differ from their own.
Llewellyn is a niche publisher of new age books. Tarot Shadow Work was published by Llewellyn, therefore it is a new age book produced by a new age press. Please do not buy my Llewellyn books if you are searching for mainstream treatment of the subject matter. I am always disappointed when reviewers find no value in my work. I can only hope that Mr. Frost returned the shadow book for a full refund.
Amazon does not allow personal web site information in the commentary. For a link to my web site, go to Llewellyn, click authors, and my name. My site carries expansions on all of my books, including how to use an entire deck of tarot cards for shadow work.
Thank you for your continued interest! CJ
