Our shadow is the part of ourselves that holds the feelings, beliefs, and behavioral patterns that we are most ashamed of or that we cannot accept about ourselves. And the degree to which we’re unconscious of our shadow is the degree to which it influences and controls us.

Rooted in Robert Augustus Masters's decades of reflection and experience as a therapist and psycho-spiritual guide, this definitive offering helps us to understand and skillfully work with the rich yet neglected shadow dimensions of who we are. With depth and clarity, Masters illuminates the process of welcoming our shadow elements in a safe way—to catalyze a more complete and healthy experience of who we are.

This powerful book is in four sections:

Meeting Our Shadow: our conditioning, fear, sense of danger, anger, shame, grief, narcissism, addiction, sexuality, spirituality, fear of death, resistance, honesty, choice, evil, the shadow of shadow work

Working with Our Shadow: shadow work in practice, strengthening the foundation for shadow work, inner child work, dethroning our inner critic, self-sabotage uncovered, and dreams: private shadow theatre

 Pain and How to Work with It: becoming more intimate with our pain, turning toward, naming, and entering our pain; emerging from our pain

 Exploring Shared Shadow: generational trauma and collective PTSD in our shadow, collective shadow unveiled.

This exploration becomes a portal to an experiential knowingness and deepening that affects the very foundation of our being. As daunting as this might sound, and as much courage as it may require, the rewards it offers are immense.

What are some of the benefits of bringing our shadow out of the dark?

  • Far more freedom from our conditioning (our ingrained programming)…
  • A strongly enhanced capacity for intimacy and healthy relationship…
  • A fuller, more grounded and awakened sense of wholeness…
  • The ability to make much better use of difficult conditions…
  • More vitality…
  • A deepened capacity for skillful activism.

Among Masters’ other titles are Spiritual Bypassing and Emotional Intimacy, and the audio workshop Knowing Your Shadow: Becoming Intimate with All That You Are.
