“I do not seek to follow in the footsteps of the men of old; I seek the things they sought.” —Basho In every tradition, saints and poets speak of the soul’s search for the beloved, the seeker’s yearning for the divine. This holy longing is a secret feeling with many disguises, leading us to pursue a higher union in spiritual practice, religious discipleship, even romantic embrace. It guides us to timeless wisdom and transcendent experiences. But it also can go awry when we misplace it onto food, alcohol, drugs, or sex. Or when we project it onto an authoritarian teacher, priest, guru, or roshi who abuses power. Whether the abuse is sexual, financial, or emotional coercion, we feel the shock of betrayal, our innocence lost, our faith shaken. This book tells the stories of renowned teachers—Sufi poet Rumi, Hindu master Ramakrishna, Christian saint Catherine of Siena—whose lives unfolded as they followed their longing. And it tells the tales of contemporary teachers of Buddhism, Hinduism, and Catholicism, who acted out their shadows in destructive ways, leaving their followers traumatized and lost. Both faithful seekers who feel hopeful and inspired and disillusioned seekers who feel hopeless and disoriented will find wise counsel here and will retrace the narrow path through the darkness toward the light.

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The shadow is the part of our personality that we don’t like, and it is typically the part that is most opposed to our ego. It is what makes us human, as it is what makes us imperfect. #2 The shadow is the part of the unconscious that is closest to consciousness, and it is the most denied expression. It is a relatively separate splinter personality in the unconscious that is isolated from exposure and discovery. #3 The shadow is the part of us that we don’t want to see. It is the disowned self, a holding buffer that contains our unacceptable parts. It becomes a holding buffer as we grow up, and we drag it behind us as we grow up. #4 The shadow is the whole unconscious, and it takes on a personal form once we begin to develop awareness of parts of it. It is through the process of shadow-work that we eventually gain a profound understanding of who we are.

The field of Jungian psychology has been growing steadily over the last twenty years and awareness is increasing of its relevance to the predicaments of modern life. Jung appeals not only to professionals who are looking for a more humane and creative way of working with their clients, but also to academics in an increasingly wide range of disciplines. This Handbook is unique in presenting a clear, comprehensive and systematic exposition of the central tenets of Jung’s work which has something to offer to both specialists and those seeking an introduction to the subject. Internationally recognised experts in Jungian Psychology cover the central themes in three sections: Theory, Psychotherapy & Applications. Each chapter begins with an introduction locating the topic in the context of Jung’s work as a whole, before moving on to an investigation of contemporary developments and concluding by demonstrating how Jung’s theories continue to evolve and develop through their practical therapeutic applications. The Handbook of Jungian Psychology is the definitive source of authoritative information on Jungian psychology for Jungian analysts, psychotherapists, counsellors and related professionals. It will be an invaluable aid to those involved in Jungian academic studies and related disciplines.

What's in a shadow? Menace, seduction, or salvation? Immaterial but profound, shadows lurk everywhere in literature and the visual arts, signifying everything from the treachery of appearances to the unfathomable power of God. From Plato to Picasso, from Rembrandt to Welles and Warhol, from Lord of the Rings to the latest video game, shadows act as central players in the drama of Western culture. Yet because they work silently, artistic shadows often slip unnoticed past audiences and critics. Conceived as an accessible introduction to this elusive phenomenon, Grasping Shadows is the first book that offers a general theory of how all shadows function in texts and visual media. Arguing that shadow images take shape within a common cultural field where visual and verbal meanings overlap, William Sharpe ranges widely among classic and modern works, revealing the key motifs that link apparently disparate works such as those by Fra Angelico and James Joyce, Clementina Hawarden and Kara Walker, Charles Dickens and Kumi Yamashita. Showing how real-world shadows have shaped the meanings of shadow imagery, Grasping Shadows guides the reader through the techniques used by writers and artists to represent shadows from the Renaissance onward. The last chapter traces how shadows impact the art of the modern city, from Renoir and Zola to film noir and projection systems that capture the shadows of passers-by on streets around the globe. Extending his analysis to contemporary street art, popular songs, billboards, and shadow-theatre, Sharpe demonstrates a practical way to grasp the "dark side" that looms all around us.

There are certain unusual mental states that have such an extraordinary intensity, that they are numinous; they involve the presence of an archetype. These states can be beautiful or utterly terrifying, they can predispose to illness but if carefully negotiated they carry enormous potential for accelerated development. This book is about these high intensity mental states as found in the psychiatric emergency room, in everyday life, in psychotherapy and in spiritual practice. How can we understand this archetypal layer of psyche and how can we work with its power to promote psycho-spiritual growth? The author weaves the archetypal perspective into the psychoanalytic and medical models of mind to show us how the different layers of the individual and collective psyche intertwine to give us our rich experience of being human. Using everyday language and using case studies from clinical work in psychiatry and psychotherapy, the author takes the reader on a journey from: * Breakdown to breakthrough * Plato's cave to Jung's archetypal crisis * Genetics to transpersonal psychology * Hearing voices to post traumatic stress disorder * Psychoanalysis to psychedelics * The mid life crisis to the encounter with death * Quantum physics to synchronicity * Shakespeare to shamanism * Transcendent nature to mindfulness

"Moving, articulate, and insightful, this book is a welcome exploration of men's spiritual journey at midlife. Written by an author with his own extraordinary middle passage, the book provides practical insights for men, while offering women an invaluable window into men's souls." -Allan Chinen, author of Beyond the Hero: Classic Stories of Men in Search of Soul"Lively and unembarrassed, written with great psychological acumen, Crossing the Soul's River is a major contribution to our understanding of men at midlife. This is the conversation men need to have with another man when their familiar old assumptions and priorities no longer make sense. Give it to a man you really care about. Give it to a woman who wants to know men at the core." -Stephen Bank, coauthor of The Sibling Bond"Crossing the Soul's River is one of the second generation of men's books that are trying to chart concrete steps men can take to do the work we need to do to become more self-actualized and, therefore, more responsible partners, citizens, and churchmen . . . [Roberts's] articulation of men's needs for the wisdom of Sophia is the clearest I have ever read."-Stephen Boyd, author of The Men We Long to Be: Beyond Lonely Warriors and Desperate Lovers "William O. Roberts's compelling book puts the male midlife crisis into its deepest context-the growth of ourselves as spiritual beings. In so doing it moves well beyond treatments which focus solely on the psychological dimension of this process-though Roberts details these too with a sharp, insightful eye honed by his own personal experience. Most helpful is his detailing of various rites of passage designed to help men navigate through this difficult time. In this the book is of practical as well as intellectual use. I found the book deeply insightful and altogether illuminating."-Brian Fay, author of Contemporary Philosophy of Social Science: A Multicultural Approach

?Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going This is the title of the celebrated painting by French artist Paul Gauguin, questions that we would all like answered; but one can read all the libraries in the world and have every experience imaginable and still not know the answer to these questions. U of T professor and clinical psychologist Dr. Jordan B. Peterson offers a way to find the answer with his global bestseller 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos, but this will only take one so far on their journey to personal resolution that will answer Gauguin's three questions; the rest of the way has to be negotiated by special effort, which One Rule to Live By: Be Good by Georgian Bay author Orest Stocco spells out by ?opening the door to a new way of perceiving, a new way of thinking and understanding, ? an unbelievable true story that defies comprehension; a story that takes the mystery out of what the great psychologist C. G. Jung called ?the way of what is to come.?
