Show Notes

In this episode of Latter-day Contemplation, Christopher and Riley are joined by a friend of the program and Carl Jung fan, Morgan Aldous, to discuss the concept of the Jungian Shadow.  Morgan is a life coach who has spent considerable time in the study of psychology, philosophy, and religion as the means to personal transformation.  This concept of The Shadow, which historically finds expression in scripture, mystical poetry and experience, visual & performance art, great literature, and formal psychological treatment methodology has application for those of us pursuing a spiritual path of personal development as well.  

In his first interaction with Father Adam and Mother Eve, Lucifer, the father of lies, inducts our primeval ancestors into the cult of binary thought; wherein, they are led to believe that the world is composed of diametrically opposing polarities, repelling each other at all times, totally incompatible with oneness and unity.  This allegory could be interpreted to describe one of the challenges of mortality – overcoming the natural man instinct to misunderstand and misrepresent ourselves, compartmentalizing and ignoring our inner shadow, to the detriment of our spiritual development.
