An important conversation with one of today's prominent thought leaders, authors and teachers on the Jungian theory of the shadow self work that has penetrated the work of most psychologists and self-healers - Dr. Connie Zweig.
Here we discuss what the shadow is, how it presents itself, and how to work with the shadow (and name it) so we can choose more consciously.
We also discuss Dr. Connie's latest work, The Inner Work of Age, Shifting from Role to Soul and how to transition out of the ego state into the elder state. The "inner-ageist" as named by Dr. Connie, is an important shadow part of the collective that has shaped the stigma of how we identify with ourselves, and aging.
Dr. Connie has retired from clinical practice. She has been initiated into Elderhood as a Certified Sage-ing Leader.
She is extending her work into late life for Baby Boomers with The Reinvention of Age: Mastering Late Life from the Inside Out (2019)
As co-author of Meeting the Shadow: The Hidden Power of the Dark Side of Human Nature and Romancing the Shadow: Illuminating the Dark Side of the Soul, and author of Meeting the Shadow of Spirituality, Dr. Connie has come to be known as a guide who can go where others fear to tread. Now she will explore how to cross the threshold from role to soul.
