Meeting the Shadow on the Spiritual Path:
The Dance of Darkness and Light in Our Search for Awakening
This book is a profound and timely guide that delves into the complex dance of darkness and light within our spiritual journeys. It recognises the universal spiritual yearning within us and acknowledges the unavoidable encounter with our own shadows and those of spiritual leaders. Zweig adeptly examines the allure of charismatic leaders and our unconscious surrender of spiritual authority to them. She provides invaluable insights into recovering from spiritual abuse or betrayal, breaking free from denial and dependency, and utilising psychology and shadow-work for healing. Through captivating stories of historical and contemporary spiritual figures, Zweig illuminates the transformative potential of spiritual yearning and the dangers when misdirected or exploited by unscrupulous leaders. Her guidance offers a path toward spiritual maturity and a deeper comprehension of the role of shadows in our spiritual evolution. For both spiritual seekers and those grappling with disillusionment, this book is a beacon of wisdom, navigating the complexities of spiritual growth, reclaiming inner authority, and reigniting the flame of longing on the path to genuine spiritual awakening.
