Publisher's Summary

The Shadow is the part of us made up of all that we hide from others: our shame, our fears, and our wounds, but also our divine spirit, our blinding beauty, and our hidden talents. The Shadow is not bad - in fact it is the source of our creativity and power - but until we bring it into the light this power will remain untapped and our full potential unreached. Using practical exercises sourced from lucid dreaming and dream-work, Tibetan Buddhism, and mindfulness meditation, this audiobook explores how to:

  • Transform the dark and light shadow side
  • Meet the shadow through your dreams
  • Unlock your creativity
  • Transform nightmares through lucid dreaming
  • Manifest your hidden potential
  • Make friends with fear and anxiety
  • Decrease stress through mindfulness of dream and sleep

This audiobook will show you how to fearlessly embrace your shadow side in both your dreams and daily life, thereby manifesting the awakened power of your full potential.

Terrible... like an elementary school book report

I'm doing something here I have never done before: writing a review based on the first few chapters. Because they are so awful I'm not sure I can finish it.

Here's the style: Tell you what he's going to tell you -- several times, with innumerable quotes that demonstrate nothing -- and move on. It's conceivable that later chapters actually deliver something, and I will try to hold on to see. But so far, I've listened to a punch of nothing, padded with quotes. It's not even well done -- it isn't interesting, or funny, just... tedious.

When I bought it (earlier today) Audible told me the rating was 4.3. Now I'm seeing 4. I hope to make it drop a little. But I cannot imagine I will end up thinking it was worth it. Ugh.

Shining a Light on Shadow Work.

Life Changing! A wonderful book & great audible performance in embracing your Shadow, the scary, ugly, dark, disturbing aspect of your personality which you keep hidden from everyone including yourself. From real-world exercises to lucid dream exercises you will learn how you can become friends with the darker aspects of yourself and become empowered by embracing and accepting the shadow aspect of your personality.

Really Useful Book

I have recommended this book to more people than perhaps any I've read. Charlie takes you on a journey into the shadow and, through sharing his own journey, makes this book less of an instruction manual and more of an inclusive practice-based approach anyone can do. If you're a human, you can grow through doing shadow work. I was always interested and somewhat afraid of my own shadow but this book gave me a sense of excitement and anticipation as I went through the exercises. I can honestly say this book has helped me enormously. The book is well researched and full of great insights. Along with other practices I do, it has taken me to a much deeper place of self-acceptance and integration - a place I always wanted to reach in my life. I'm also into dreamwork so the recognising shadow aspects in dreams part I found really useful alongside the exercises. I have integrated this practice into my every day. Being who you are is nothing to be ashamed, embarrassed or afraid of, and if you take on the exercises in this book you may well be on the road to self-acceptance and a new experience of life.

Don't buy this book

I bought this mistakenly thinking it will give me an insight into lucid dreaming. I am incredibly disappointed, I got no insight into this at all. Writing down dreams after we wake up and recollecting them can give an insight into what we have been dreaming about but not enable us to develop lucid dreaming (where we may be able to recognise and even alter the actual outcome of our dream, during the dream). This book is a pop-psychology work about the unconscious (as a psychoanalyst might refer to this aspect of ourselves) but Charlie Morley is encouraging us to explore this profound aspect of self in a superficial way. Simply with the aid of his book, without a qualified professional to unearth and discuss the disturbing aspects of ourself that we may begin to touch on through insights provided by our dreams. This is like sending the reader or listener up a dangerous mountain alone, with a map but with no experienced guide - just a book on mountaneering.

I loved this book...

Fantastic book to listen to, and worked really well as an audiobook, as it had several guided meditations. I'll be listening to this one over and over again for insight and inspiration. Thank you Charlie.

life changing book!

This book is absolutely amazing and will change your life. Charlie takes you on a journey to meet your shadow, he gives you the tools to integrate the different aspects of your shadow and introduces the reader to easy understand concepts and techniques of Lucid Dreaming. Other than the wonderful content, Charlie is funny, very likeable and has a great voice for an audiobook!
