In this episode, we look at how you can accept yourself better – not via useless affirmations, but by integrating the shadow within. This concept, coined by Jung is “the unknown ‘‘dark side’’ of our personality - dark both because it tends to consist predominantly of the primitive, negative, socially or religiously depreciated human emotions and impulses like sexual lust, power strivings, selfishness, greed, envy,  or rage, and due to its unenlightened nature, completely obscured from consciousness.”

One of the reasons for the phenomenal success of JK Rowling’s favourite boy wizard is that he succeeds in integrating his shadow – or, as I show you, shadowS during the 7 books.


*Why Voldemort is not Harry’s shadow

*Who is

*The one aspect that sets them apart from everyone else that is  integral to Harry’s development

*How Harry Potter has helped me recover from food compulsion

*Why empathy for some of the most nasty characters can be helpful



…comes from Aberforth, when Harry is about to enter The Battle of Hogwarts. The most (unitentionally) hilarious line of the whole series, IMHO
