Simple, practical and electric, this excellent text for those seeking to better understand the shadow as described by Jungian psychology is now beautifully translated from French into English. Well known in the French community for introducing Jungian thought, John Monbourquette earned his Ph.D. in transformational psychology at the International College of Los Angeles in 1985 following his Masters in Clinical Psychology at the U. of San Francisco in 1975. A Catholic priest, Monbourquette posits ...more

An okay primer on Carl Jung's conception of the the shadow and "shadow integration." Most of the book established theoretical groundwork, and the lattermost sections discussed a practical approach on how to lead a more balanced life, wherein one is able to identify and circumvent toxic psychic projections. A better read for someone who is not overly familiar with Jungian psychology, but short, digestible and written in a plain and understandable manner.

De eerste hoofdstukken zijn heel boeiend, het midden is wat saai het eind wel aardig. Het midden probeert de psychologische theorie simpel uit te leggen, beetje kort door de bocht. Er staan ook enkele dingen in waar ik het mee oneens ben.
Best interessant en niet dik. Leuk voor de afwisseling, het boek is wel heel anders dan wat ik anders lees.

Excellente introduction au concept de l'ombre dans un langage simple et accessible. Plusieurs conseils pratiques permettant de mettre en œuvre des stratégies pour favoriser son développement personnel.
