On this show, we often speak about hidden realities that effect our daily lives or that things aren’t as they seem. Carl Jung’s concept of the personal shadow fits right into this elusive category. Carl Jung was a Swiss psychotherapist and psychiatrist, and the founder of analytical psychology. In 1917 he wrote in his essay “On the Psychology of the Unconscious” of the personal shadow as the other in us. The negative side of the personality, the sum of all unpleasant qualities we like to hide. It embarrasses or shames us. “Everything with a substance casts a shadow, the ego stands to the shadow as light to shade.”
