Romancing The Shadow: A Guide To Soul Work For ...
Zweig and Wolf begin with brief accounts of their own shadow work and then go on to examine shadow in family (secrets and stultification of soul), dating (looking for the beloved), romantic partners (shadow boxing), marriage (shadow dancing until death do us part), friends, work, and midlife. Throughout the book the authors use case histories and mythic tales to illustrate the dark side of the soul. Again and again, they explore the ways in which the urge for money, power, and sex carry the projection of the soul. Romancing the Shadow is a wide-ranging and eye-opening treatment of a complex subject.

Steve Wolf, PhD, and Connie Zweig, PhD, innovators in the use of shadow-work in psychotherapy, have helped hundreds of clients in their encounters with the dark side. Seeing it - meeting the shadow - is a first step. Learning to live with it - romancing the shadow - is a lifelong challenge. It means reading the messages encoded in the events of daily life in such a way that we gain consciousness, substance, and soul. In fact, shadow-work is soul work.
With shadow-work, we cultivate a deeper self-knowledge and authenticity. When we identify family shadow patterns, we move toward cultivating family soul. When we untangle romantic projections, we begin to build the soul of a relationship. When we face descent at midlife and meet the underworld shadow, we reclaim the unlived life of the soul. And when we retrieve our lost vitality and creative fertility - the gold in the dark side - we nurture the hungry soul. 041b061a72
