Out of the Shadows
An Exoloration of Dark Paganism and Magick

The Shadow


This chapter explores what is known in Jungian psychology as "The Shadow." It is the dark side of us that we are usually not even aware of, yet it often secretly affects our behavior.

After defining the shadow and showing how much power it has over us both individually and collectively, the chapter explains how to confront and own up to our dark side, making us more whole.

Facing the shadow is often the greatest stumbling block on any spiritual path, yet it is often not taught to students properly, if at all.
