Summary:
"The shadow is a part of the unconscious mind consisting of repressed weaknesses and base instincts. "Everyone carries a shadow, " Jung wrote, "and the less it is embodied in the individual's conscious life, the blacker and denser it is." Now today's most popular spiritual teachers, Debbie Ford, Marianne Williamson, and Deepak Chopra join forces in this remarkable exploration of the dark side--the emotions and traits we are most afraid of and instinctively hide. When we reject or refuse to acknowledge this part of our nature we become susceptible to those emotions and traits negatively impacting us. The truth is the shadow makes it presence known whether we want it to or not. The difference is that if uninvited our dark side has the potential to hurt us and our loved ones at any moment. However by embracing our shadow we embark on an incredible, rewarding journey. This journey to wholeness, far from frightening, is empowering. By uncovering who we really are, the totality of our being, we access hidden strengths, boundless courage, and a clear path to happiness. Following a joint introduction, the book will be divided into three sections. Debbie will write on the personal shadow, Marianne will write about spirituality and our shadow, and Deepak will close with the collective shadow"--

Author Notes

Deepak Chopra was born in New Delhi, India in 1946. He was educated as a medical doctor, specializing in endocrinology, at All India Institute of Medical Sciences. He served as Chief of Staff at Boston Regional Medical Center, and has taught at Tufts and Boston University Medical Schools. He recognized limitations in the ways that his medical education approached treatment of individuals. Introduced to the ancient methods of Hindu healing, known as Ayurveda, by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, he saw a way to add a spiritual dimension to treatment of illness. Chopra's thinking led him to develop a theory that he called Quantum Healing, which combines Western and Hindu medical practice.

In 1984, Chopra brought Ayurvedic medicine to the United States, and within a year he established the Ayurvedic Health Centre of Stress Management and Behavioral Medicine in Lancaster, Massachusetts. He is also the founding President of the American Association of Ayurvedic Medicine and eventually founded the Chopra Center for Wellbeing.

He has written more than 55 books including Ageless Body, Timeless Mind: The Quantum Alternative to Growing Old; Creating Health: How to Wake Up the Body's Intelligence; Creating Affluence: The A-to-Z Steps to a Richer Life; The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success: A Practical Guide to the Fulfillment of Your Dreams; The Shadow Effect and Muhammad: A Story of the Last Prophet; Spiritual Solutions: Answers to Life's Greatest Challenges; Super Brain: Unleashing the Explosive Power of Your Mind to Maximize Health, Happiness, and Spiritual Well-Being; and The Healing Self: A Revolutionary New Plan to Super Charge Your Immunity and Stay Well for Life. He has won numerous awards including a Quill Award for Peace Is the Way and the grand prize at the 2005 Nautilus Book Awards for The Book of Secrets. He also writes novels including The Return of Merlin; Soulmate; and Jesus: A Story of Enlightenment.

Library Journal Review

This coproduction of the star spiritual-writing team of Chopra, Marianne Williamson, and Debbie Ford is a component of a larger project, the documentary film of the same name, which features these authors plus several other famous faces, including Verdine White of the R&B group Earth, Wind, and Fire. The shadow is the name they give to the fears, inhibitions, and unspoken impulses that impede us and lead to self-destructive behaviors. Their essays here deal with the history of the shadow, methods for dealing with it, and the relations between the shadow and the soul. VERDICT By virtue of its authors alone, this title will command a wide readership among spiritual seekers; its concerns, too, are real and timely. (c) Copyright 2010.
