"One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious" (Carl Jung)
Thirty years ago, I began to explore the writings on the "shadow" living in each human being, one of Jung's major contributions
to understanding human nature. I did this mainly through the teachings of Marion Woodman, in books and workshops. Today, all these years later, a friend reading this book reminded me - I actually felt a pull - that it might be time to read some of this again.
And so it turned out to be. Published in 1991 - this group of 65 short articles by major Jungian practitioners of our world fairly jumps off the pages with how prophetically the Shadow described by Jung and in those years thought mainly to be personal,
is now operating on global levels, as we watch our world ripped apart daily by war and killings, and by the small mindedness of politicians and many world leaders.
I am finding this collection to be compelling reading, reaching deep into my 71 years
of life and experience, and seeing more and more clearly the truth of our present world.
