In this profound and intelligent book, Fiona Robertson acts as companion and guide through the dark night of the soul, one of life’s most challenging experiences. The dark night - or spiritual emergency - is the underbelly of awakening, an aspect of inner transformation that is often minimized, misunderstood, or denied. Fiona has captured the essence of the dark night journey with compassion and clarity. Weaving her own story together with those of others who have traversed this terrain, she has created an evocative, inspiring work to give succor to all those who are touched by the dark night. Fiona’s honesty and insight cast new light on the reality of awakening, and she makes a compelling case for mature, evolving spirituality in these troubled times.
“A grounded, depthful, and beautifully hearticulated description of the dark night of the soul journey. The perfect book for anyone who is truly ready to confront and transform their shadow into the light at its source. Highly recommended!” (Jeff Brown, author of An Uncommon Bond and Grounded Spirituality)
“The Dark Night of the Soul portrays the hero’s journey from the darkness of psychological desolation into the light of wholeness and integration. By tracing this little-explored landscape, Fiona Robertson provides a much-needed service: A map and a message of hope for anyone seeking a way forward in the midst of spiritual crisis.” (Angelo John Lewis, director of the Diversity and Spirituality Network and author of Notes for a New Age)
