We all have a shadow self. As uncomfortable as it may sound, every human being has a dark side that has been shunned, rejected, suppressed, and buried within the unconscious.
However, disowning the shadow for too long can be dangerous, sabotaging our lives in every possible way. When we don’t face our inner darkness, problems with anger, addiction, chronic anxiety, depression, shame, hypocrisy, deceit, chaotic relationships, sexual dysfunction, self-loathing, and many other issues slowly consume our lives.
In this uniquely deep and compassionate book, spiritual educator and guide Aletheia Luna leads you through the dark forests and hidden caverns of your shadow self. By learning how to befriend your shadows through the power of mindful shadow work, you can dissolve the shame, secrecy, and energetic density of these inner blockages.
Through the eyes of gentleness and lovingkindness, Luna teaches you not only how to uncover your shadows but also how to find their hidden lessons, recover their gifts, and transmute them so that you are free of the trauma they bear, reclaiming the joy that is your inherent birthright.

Shadow work is inherently deep, revealing, and often confronting. If you suffer from low self-esteem or self-loathing tendencies, please ensure that you have developed a good foundation of self-love first. Shadow work practiced without the capacity to show self-love is destructive, as it can make you feel a thousand times worse about yourself. So please cultivate the ability to practice self-love and care before doing any form of shadow work. Furthermore, if you suffer from any psychiatric condition, please seek the guidance of your mental health professional before engaging with this book, as the material may be too intense or potentially re-traumatizing. As always, please approach any form of deep inner work slowly, gently, and with mindful self-compassion.

What currency is the price?
All prices are in USD.
I have downloaded the eBook, but it’s not opening.
There are a few things you can do: (1) ensure that you have the latest version of Foxit PDF Reader, available at https://www.foxitsoftware.com/pdf-reader/, and (2) download the files again using the link that was emailed to you. (3) If you still have issues, please contact us.
How do I read the eBook on my Kindle/eReader?
You can upload the ePub files directly to your Kindle (via your USB cable) or use an eBook management library such as Calibre eBook Management.

Is there an audio version of the book?
Unfortunately, no. But here’s a little life hack we’ve learned: on your eReader app (if you don’t have one, go to the Google Play store on your phone or tablet and search for “eReader app”), there’s usually a text-to-speech option. This allows you to listen to the book and convert it into an audiobook automatically!
