“Everyone carries a shadow, and the less it is embodied in the individual’s conscious life, the blacker and denser it is.” (Carl Jung, Psychology and Religion, p.131). All too often, we turn a blind eye to the shadow side of human nature. It is only with an enormous effort that we can acknowledge this side of ourselves. In the context of trauma, we invariably have to deal with a considerably intensified shadow. If such a person wants to be cured, it is necessary to find a way in which his conscious personality and his shadow can live together. On Wednesday, February 10th at 8 PM PST, Dr. John Deri will share with us: (1) Why we turn a blind eye to our shadow side; (2) How we become aware of our shadow side; (3) How to integrate our shadow side. We look forward to sharing our show with you.
