  Shadow (psychology) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In Jungian psychology, the shadow is a part of the unconscious mind which is mysterious and often disagreeable to the conscious mind, but which is also relatively close to the conscious mind.
The shadow may appear in dreams and visions in various forms, often as a feared or despised person or being, and may act either as an adversary or as a friend.
The shadow might be the basis of the rank of Corax (raven) in the ancient religion of Mithraism.

 Temple of the Sacred Spiral - Session 11 - Jung and Paganism
The 'shadow', which is always of the same sex, is the dark side of the person, characterized by inferior, uncivilized or animal qualities which the 'ego' wishes to hide from others.
The sun and the shadow rotate casting their opposites; the God, Dionysius, sun's Shadow, killing and dismembering the alchemist (I kill and make alive), and the sun God, Apollo, raising the alchemist to eternal life (I wound and heal), which is exactly what psychoanalysis does.
Shadow: the inferior, uncivilized and animal qualities repressed by the Ego form a Shadow which stands in compensatory relationship to the "light" of the Ego.

 Jung: On The Shadow
Everyone carries a shadow, and the less it is embodied in the individual's conscious life, the fler and denser it is. If an inferiority is conscious, one always has a chance to correct it.
On the other hand, the shadow belongs to the wholeness of the personality: the strong man must somewhere be weak, somewhere the clever man must be stupid, otherwise he is too good to be true and falls back on pose and bluff.
The shadow is a moral problem that challenges the whole ego-personality, for no one can become conscious of the shadow without considerable moral effort.

Taylor, who is a lecturer in psychology at Harvard Medical School, explains that the New Age movement is a historically rooted movement that blends psychology and spirit.
Often referred to as New Age or pop psychology-especially by its detractors-this new awakening is a profoundly psychological one, stressing the alteration of consciousness, the integration of mind and body, and the connection between physical and mental health.
Shadow Culture finds the roots of the New Age in the sermons of Jonathan Edwards, the writings of Emerson and Thoreau, and the counterculture of the 1960s.

Lets begin with the definition of shadow shadow Darkness in a region, caused by an obstruction between the source of light and the region.
The darkest part of a shadow in which light is completely cut off is called the umbra; a lighter part surrounding the umbra, in which the light is only partly cut off, is called the penumbra.
By Jung's definition then they would be shadow dwellers, but by the literal definition of shadows I was pointing out the literal definition that an obstruction is affecting their lives.

 AHP Perspective
The shadow, which is in conflict with the acknowledged values, cannot be accepted as a negative part of one’s own psyche and is therefore projected—that is it is transferred to the outside world and experienced as an outside object.
Shadow projection, both individual and collective, is where we usually project shadow qualities on to others or groups, who may or may not have the qualities we are rejecting, because we are rejecting qualities that we have but can’t acknowledge as our own.
In shadow integration we can avoid shadow possession and withdraw shadow projection by recognizing that these qualities are part of ourselves and by attempting to channel their negative aspects in positive directions.

 Jung Talk - Social Psychologist Dubbed "Shadow of Modern Psychology"   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Self-educated in Jungian psychology, Wyatt Ehrenfels is critical of policies and procedures governing day-to-day operations in Psychology's academic and professional communities and has unleashed a reform campaign advanced by his novel/expose Fireflies in the Shadow of the Sun.
The shadow is a vital component of the personality and often the emissary of a broader mind seeking to make room for growth by cleaving the ego identity from the singular goal of adjustment.
Normal psychological processes serve as underwater currents in what is a complementary and cooperative relationship between shadow and ego identity, but where the ego identity develops a chronic prejudicial attitude against the shadow material, depriving the psychic system of its flexibility and degrees of freedom, the shadow recriprocates the antagonism by sabotaging the ego identity.

 Shadow Culture: Psychology and Spirituality in America
Its practitioners comprise a shadow culture of seekers, whose experiences are best understood in the context of three centuries of the American search for the sacred.
In the folk psychology of that era, ties between spiritualism and mental healing likewise burgeoned in the diverse practices of homeopathy, phrenology, and mesmerism.
Today, that shadow culture can be found flourishing in every region and sector of American society-the Christian practitioners of Hindu yoga or zen meditation, the Jewish psychologists attaining the rank of Moslem Su masters, the American-born Buddhist nuns.

The shadow, which is in conflict with the acknowledged values, cannot be accepted as a negative part of one's own psyche and is therefore projected--that is, it is transferred to the outside world and experienced as an outside object.
An individual's shadow is invariably bound up with the collective shadow of his group, and as he digests his own evil, a fragment of the collective evil is invariably co-digested at the same time.
The shadow is not a transitional stage or "nothing but" the instinctual side considered simply as the soil in which the roots of life are embedded.

 Jung Society of Atlanta - Shadow
He states that the shadow is one of the three archetypes which has "the most frequent and the most disturbing influence on the ego." (The others are the anima and animus.) It consists of the inferior and "primitive" aspects of the psyche -- those traits which we regard as undesirable, "bad, " or sinful.
While the shadow is "the most accessible" of the three archetypes and therefore "the easiest to experience," it is "a moral problem that challenges the whole personality." Coming to terms with it requires "considerable moral effort" because we do not want to admit that we ourselves possess the dark qualities we despise.
The shadow will always be bigger than we are: our little lights may grow brighter, but the darkness will always be there, just beyond the boundaries of consciousness.

 Resolution Psychology
Spirit or resolution psychology is not in opposition to modern day psychology, simply a different method of processing, analyzing, uncovering or exposing the cause of ones internally created pain, misery and suffering.
Resolution psychology is a new form of psychology, defining individual existence from an experiential position by understanding the formation and functioning of consciousness.
So it becomes what that shadow sees as its reality — which is the accumulated discrimination— and the shadow is maintained by that seeing, which is deceitful.

Although the shadow is thought of as the dark side of the individual it should be noted that it could also contain undeveloped positive parts.
Since an individual will deny or ignore his or her shadow side, it is likely that it will be projected onto others.
The shadow may present itself as an unknown individual usually of the same sex as the dreamer.

Our shadow side is that part of ourselves that we deny or neglect, that which we reject or repress in order to maintain a more idealized image of ourselves.
When we honestly look at our shadow of selfishness, we can see that at times it leads us to hold our time and energy, so that we may be truly loving and wise toward ourselves.

 Key Theorists/Theories in Psychology - CARL JUNG
He wrote valuable papers, but more important was his book on the psychology of dementia praecox (1906), which led to a meeting with Sigmund Freud.
Jungian psychology is based on psychic totality and psychic energism; he postulated two dimensions in the unconscious—the personal and the archetypes of a collective unconscious.
He developed the concepts of extroversion and introversion for the study of personality types, as well as the theory of synchronicity, the coincidence of causally unrelated events having identical or similar meaning.

But it’s very difficult to acknowledge that the stuff in the pool really is a part of who we are: sexual fantasies, the desire to harm and kill, the drive for revenge — all the dark and scary impulses that we disown and try not to think about.
Some examples of the shadow might be Darth Vader, Hannibal Lechter, vampires and monsters, the Taliban, and the long list of scary and violent characters both in film and in real life.
The mask is no longer hiding who you really are (and hiding the shadow), and the shadow has stopped finding troublesome ways to make itself known in your life.

Hoeller says that when individuals or societies lack self-knowledge and interior integration, they project the evil or shadow content of the unconscious and make the presence of an evil and loathsome enemy a veritable psychic necessity.
Through history many individuals and groups have been taken over by the shadow of their own nature, or by the universal shadow.
Hoeller explores the inevitable aspect of human nature that attempts to rid itself of the dark, the unacceptable and evil side of itself by projecting that shadow in someone else.

Chickens and geese run from the shadow cast by a hawk, or a cardboard cutout of a hawk, though they have had no previous experience with either shadow or hawk.
If most of the impulses are from cells that identify the shadow as "not hawk" then the brain's decision is not to react in fear.
If, however, most of the impulses are from cells that identify the shadow as "hawk," the cells "vote" for reaction and send impulses to the cells that control the muscles, glands and organs of the body.
