Pain is something we can all relate to. We have grown socially accustomed to looking for a magic pill to mask it, and all other symptoms of deeper unrest. Yet becoming intimate with pain, but not possessed by it, enables us to feel, sense, and hear the wise teachings held within it. Emotional, physical, mental, sexual, and psychic pain, as well as collective pain carried f ...more

This is a good intro to Shadow work for beginners but for those already familiar with concept and process it doesn't have much new to offer. I also felt a lot of sections came away more poetic or preachy than actually informative or "how to". ...more

Forgivness flows

The contents of this book allowed me to see my family in a while new way. I had a moment when I had an almost clinical view of my family I was able to step back and see them almost just characters in a book and See the family dynamic.They were all driven by their shadow and trauma that was driven by their parents shadows and trauma and on and on. I saw that the story was destined for a sad ending if something didn't shift. I saw why it didn't. I feel that it's possible for me to

Giving this book an actual 3.5 stars. I read this book with the intention of using it as a guide while I embarked on some deep shadow work. I wanted and expected to love this book. Although I love the nuggets of wisdom that I mined from the pages, there weren’t enough of them for me to absolutely love this book. Some of the information shared in certain sections was repeated in a differently phrased way in other sections which made it feel like filler. I also was disappointed that the sections d ...more

Not worth reading

This book started out promising but about halfway through it shifts. Several times she contradicts her own message frequently which left me constantly questioning if she knew what she was talking about. For example, saying how it's wrong to disown our inner child by talking about them in 3rd person and then ending the book talking about her shadow as her own unruly children. The transitions in this book are also quite sloppy. The chapters are short which is said to be for the re

I started out very eager with this book. This was one of my first shadow work books, but I'm not new to the process. I went slow and answered things presented in each chapter. Somewhere in the middle it started unraveling, however. I kept going, but it seemed very redundant and I wasn't finding anything new to push myself on.

The collective mindset towards the end seemed out of place and forced, in my opinion.

This book just wasn't what I was looking for during my journey. I plan on checking out

A self help book that actually helps

This book is well written, each chapter a page or two of bite-sized information on healing the wounded inner child. The overall tone is caring, compassionate and hopeful. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for an ally on their shadow work journey.

Deep Innerwork Broken Down

This book helped unearth aspects of inner-work that frankly terrifies me to explore. The writer broke it down in ways that allowed me to understand why it was important to keep at it and why I resisted. Thank you

"This book speaks directly to the soul and says 'here you go, this is the work you've been waiting to do.' This accessible way in is going to make the collective work all the more possible."
