Summary

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)

Highly Recommended!

A truly personal and candid insight in to the authors own journey in to the 'dark night'. A must read for anyone facing similar challenges but also fascinating for those who are coming to this book because they are deeply interested in the human experience.

MUST Read for Anyone Who's In Dark Times

I was reading Thomas Moore's "The Dark Nights of the Soul" when I decided to listen to this autobiographical book as an accompaniment. And I frankly got at least as much, maybe more, out of this listen than the book I was reading. Ms. Robertson's personal account is so beautifully written and the words she used to describe her Dark Night experience deeply resonated with me. Her speaking voice is soft, warm and full of kindness which made it great to listen to during sleepless nights. This book helped me so immensely. High recommendation if you feel like your life is in a dark place right now.
