Shadow Light is one of the wisest books on our unconscious life to emerge in recent years. We live in an age in which individuals, even nations, are whipsawed back and forth by the influence of our personal and collective shadows, creating chaos, confusion, and unhappiness. Understanding our shadow -- both its destructive and constructive aspects -- is a crucial factor not just for personal psychological maturation, but also for our survival as a species. In this important book, psychologist Keith Witt draws on evidence unavailable to Freud and Jung. The result is a blueprint for our time -- for deeper meaning, joy, fulfillment, even survival. Highly recommended.
Much has been written on the topic of shadow and the unconscious, but no one has yet taken an Integral view of it. Here Keith Witt offers this comprehensive perspective and does so with his usual blend of joy, practicality, and wide-ranging experience as a psychotherapist. Read this book with care, and it will serve to propel your conscious self-awareness in all areas of your life.
