There is no change that doesn't begin in the darkness of the human soul. When the obligation to become whole is laid upon an individual, the first task he must undertake is to confront his Shadow. The necessity for the confrontation with the Shadow has been known by all cultures in all times and recorded in their myths and legends. This book is about the Shadow contained in each of us, and why we must each join with our shadow, the archetype of darkness and evil, in order to become whole. This heroic process is crucial, as the projection or denial of the Shadow twists its true meaning into a destructive force. Author Robertson draws from stories of real people's lives, the Bible, fairy tales and legends, modern fiction and the work of famed depth-psychologist C. G. Jung as well as his own experiences.--From publisher description.
