The Shadow and Integrating our Spiritual and Psychological Work


David Richo, Ph.D., M.F.T.

We all contain creative qualities and powers that we have kept hidden out of fear and self-doubt. Our Shadow includes all that we abhor about ourselves and all the wonderful attributes that we have disavowed or denied. We project the negativities onto others as strong dislike. We project our own positive potential onto others as awe and admiration. We do not have to keep projecting our own powers onto others but can reclaim them and use them mindfully and imaginatively. Then foes become allies; dark angles become archways of light. We learn to hold ourselves with loving-kindness. We learn to act lovingly toward others whose dark sides may be disturbing us. We learn to work through fears and projections. 

David Richo, Ph.D., M.F.T., is psychotherapist, writer, and workshop leader. He teaches at a variety of places including Esalen and Spirit Rock Buddhist Center. He shares his time between Santa Barbara and San Francisco, California. Dave combines psychological and spiritual perspectives in his work. His book is Shadow Dance (Shambhala, 1999).

In describing his course, Dave quotes Anne Frank who wrote, “I am grateful to God for giving me this gift, this possibility of developing myself and of writing, of expressing all that is in me. I can shake off everything if I write. My sorrows disappear; my courage is reborn.”  


In his own words Dave writes, “Mystics found ways to contact the divine directly and often expressed what they found in poems. We will read and reflect on poems by poets from Western and Eastern traditions. We will try our hand at writing our own spiritually-inspired poems. Anyone can share; no one has to. Poetry, our own and others’, can be quite illuminating. Join us to take that opportunity.”
