Spiritual Growth Articles

 Shadow Work.

To confront a person with his own shadow
is to show him his own light.
--Carl G. Jung 

This month, our Feature Articles are looking at the theme of "Shadow Work." 
Each of our contributing experts shares his/her own unique methods and techniques for uncovering, exploring, and working with our shadow selves for personal growth and spiritual development. By understanding, accepting and integrating all of our "selves," both the positive and the negative, we allow our wholeness [holiness] to unfold. We are able to embrace, love and honor the Divine uniqueness in ourselves, as well as in all humanity.

May peace and joy be yours, as you discover the light of Spirit in your shadow!
