    "Deep, practical, insightful"

    I've read and listen to a lot of books on spirituality and personal development. In that reading and listing I've often come across the concept of the shadow. It never seems like a subject I really wanted to look into deeply. Now after listening to this book, I'm enthusiastic about doing shadow work. Particularly helpful for me are the sections on the inner critic, anger, sex, and spiritual bypassing. I also really like Robert Agustus Masters voice and delivery. He talks clearly and expressively and as if he's just sitting in an armchair across from you discussing the matter off the top of his head. It's a very nice conversational style. This is the sort of book I will be listening to over and over again.

    Story
    "Powerful, profound, like being with an actual"
    If you could sum up Knowing Your Shadow in three words, what would they be?

    therapist but better than most. If you're like me you've been through 4 or 5 who just ask you what you did last week and nothing else. This is not like that, this is actual shadow work. The meditations for meeting your shadow in section 2 are great. And the song that closes section 2 out is so awful that after recovering from the initial shock of being immediately and spontaneously thrust back into your childhood with images of your overbearing [insert religion here] mom and all the shame and guilt and crap that entails, you won't be discouraged from doing shadow work on that too. Haven't listened to the rest, but I'm sure it's good.


    What other book might you compare Knowing Your Shadow to and why?

    Possibly Ken Wilber's early stuff, the stuff he wrote in the 80's before boarding the turquoise spaceship.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Section 2 Meditation where you stand outside the cave.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Knowing Your Shadow?

    Knowing my shadow, duh.


    Any additional comments?

    Nope.
