Owning Your Own Shadow

Though I’m not strictly a Jungian therapist, I’ve come across a really cool URL recently!

Here’s an snippet of the focus of this unique blogsite:  “…somewhere early on our  way, we eat one of the wonderful fruits of the tree of knowledge, things  separate into good an devil, and we begin the shadow-making process; we divide  our lives. In the cultural process we sort out our God-given characteristics  into those that are acceptable to our society and those that have to be put  away. This is wonderful and necessary, and there would be no civilized behavior  without this sorting out of good an evil. But the refused and unacceptable  characteristics do not go away; they only collect in the dark corners of our  personality. When they have been hidden long enough, they take on a life of  their own — the shadow life.”
