In her first book, The Art of Finding Yourself, local author Fiona Robertson invited readers to redefine their own narrative through the lens of simple stories about her own experience. In her latest book, The Dark Night of the Soul, Fiona acts as companion and guide through the dark night of the soul, one of life’s most challenging experiences. The dark night—or spiritual crisis or emergency—is the underbelly of awakening, an aspect of inner transformation that is often minimised, 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 a profound, evocative and inspiring work to give succour 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.
"For anyone who is going through a dark period, this is the most embodied, accurate and easy to read book I've read on the dark night of the soul. It will meet you right in the centre of your actual experience of darkness and hold you like a wise and dear friend. This is so badly needed on the planet right now."
