Dark Hearts changed changed my life in a profound way. After reading this work, I was able to make better sense of the human condition and the forces at play behind the toxic and destructive concept of masculinity that we see throughout the world. Masculinity (the "dark side") and femininity (affirmation of life) are polarities within consciousness itself.

Dr. Pedersen in Dark Hearts masterfully explains to the lay reader about Carl Jung’s psychoanalytic theory and tenets, so that one can better understand the overarching psychological struggle that confronts most men. Dr. Pedersen also gives wonderful illustrations of how his many years of practicing as a Jungian analyst bears out the truth of his theory regarding men and how they fail to honor and respect their own true nature.

Dark Hearts changed changed my life in a profound way. After reading this work, I was able to make better sense of the human condition and the forces at play behind the toxic and destructive concept of masculinity that we see throughout the world. This book presents a path to happiness, if you have the courage to try it!

This is a fine book addressing the unconscious that has far more effect on our lives than we readily admit. As Sigmund Freud said: "The mind is an iceberg-it floats with only 1/7 of its bulk above water." [quoted in Leo Rosten's Carnival of Wit Dutton NY 1994, page 402]. Most of us have hidden, unconscious compulsions that control our lives in strange ways. This book addresses many aspects of these forces, however, it is more Jungian than Freudian (with explanations of the anima/animus archetypes that greatly effect our relationships with the opposite sex). Dr. Pederson tries to be impartial because as he states on pages 225-6: "Most behavioral research, however, is biased by the fact that the experimenters are interested, covertly or overtly, in establishing a particular point of view."

He also addresses the process of projection in which we project our inner feelings, orientations, problems, desires, etc. onto other individuals who are then said to carry these projections. He states that these are stored in the body on page 220 (note 27): "A man's physical body and its various organs often carry the unconscious projections of emotional issues he needs to integrate into his awareness. These symptoms can lead him to a deeper level of communication with himself if he takes the symptoms as signs of a need to sacrifice the rigidities and narrowness of his conscious attitudes."

Most interesting are his observations about the development of projection over time such as on page 87: "Early belief systems were undoubtedly so intertwined with projection that there was little, if any, separation between myth and reality. In this sense, consciousness of the Paleolithic and Neolithic periods was a mythic consciousness."

He also addresses love, parenting, etc. such as his observation on page 185 that: "We could say that the mother is more instrumental in the development of a man's capacity to receive love, and the father is more instrumental in his capacity to give love."

This book was written by a Junghian epigone, and it contains trite Junghian cliches. Masculinity (the "dark side") and femininity (affirmation of life) are polarities within consciousness itself. Self-reflective consciousness is an active process of paying attention to those unconscious contents of our psyches that arise by way of dreams, fantasies and experiences.According to the author,the real challenge is to integrate and balance these energies, to achieve "wholeness" by listening to the Unconscious. People are encouraged to get away from the pure archetypes of masculinity and femininity, and to evolve toward psychological androgyny (p. 205).Pedersen urges his (especially male) readers to seek the archetype of the ANIMA (soul, breath), an endogenous power, a mysterious substratum of a man's personality (see the description of his pathetic attempts to lead a men's group on p. 10).The anima functions as a bridge between the ego and the unconscious. When men suppress the negative pole of the feminine image, their consciousness is impoverished; this in turn increases fears, anxieties, depression and represses interpersonal relatedness, feelings, creativity, spirituality. A conscious acknowledgement of the anima allows a man to access it: "We need to appeal to her as a guide to the underworld of a man's psyche" (p. 212). The over-identification of man with his masculine pole of his psyche generates inability to promote life, to nurture, and to relate effectively and emphatically with either men or women (p. 165). Traditionally, a father's love for his son is conditioned by how well the son mirrors his father's values and conforms to his expectation. The father's love is earned through the son's successful mastery of his father's expectations (p.185). If the father is too authoritarian and doesn't create enough room for mistakes and experimentation, his son may rebel by disavowing his father's love in order to protect his sense of integrity (p. 186).Pedersen proceeds to rant and rave against masculinity and to extol the virtues of femininity: "The quality and types of a man's experiences of his own mother and of women he encountered in his early life all contribute to the inner feminine in his psyche."
Persona is the outermost layer of personality, usually defined socially: we usually need to identify our self with the persona.
The shadow is the negative ego-personality and includes all those qualities we find painful or regrettable (p. 166) We should integrate our shadow too(p. 178-79).We need to encounter the anima by visualizing her, evoking her and dialoguing with her (p. 51-53).In chapter 2 he discusses the archetypal Great Mother; exogamy; the matrilinear system; the goddess of fertility and life; matriarchy; agricultural and egalitarian societies.
