Only a handful of true spiritual elders come along in each generation and Robert A. Johnson is internationally acknowledged as a genuine wisdom keeper. He is one of the most influential interpreters of Jung, restating Jung's rich, complex theories with simplicity and grace. Here he shares his insights and experiences in this easy-to-read book on projection -- seeing positive and negative traits in others before realizing they are our own. Drawing on early Christianity, medieval alchemy, Dante, depth psychology, and the myths of The Flying Dutchman and The Once and Future King, Johnson explores loneliness, fundamentalism, true love, and the spiritual dimensions of psychotherapy. Johnson's term inner work has become part of the vocabulary with which serious seekers understand themselves and their lifes journey. His books are known, loved, and respected for their beautiful retellings of timeless myths and folktales as well as their deep wisdom.
