Deep within the cavern of our unconscious reside our forbidden feelings, secret wishes, hidden hurts and creative urges. Over time, these forces become what we call our "shadow." Bringing our shadow out into the light brings deeper self-knowledge and authenticity, better relationships, and often the ability to tap into our creative depths. Connie Zweig, a Jungian psychotherapist who specializes in shadow-work, reminds us that not everything about our shadow is bad or wrong. If we think of our shadow "as a darkroom, in which our dreams and images lie dormant, then shadow-work is like the process of development by which they come back to life." (hosted by Michael Toms)
