The Unexplored Room

Greg Loewen leads readers through the darkness of the human shadow, where his own courageous work transformed something he avoided into something treasured.  His description of the unexplored room will help you discover and claim new territory in your own life.

The Unexplored Room:
Dare to Enter and Find Your Heart

In his remarkable new book on personal work and well-being, Greg Loewen invites you to imagine a room in your basement full of experiences, desires, and dreams that you have walled off from your conscious self.  With skillful mentorship and gentle humor, Loewen guides you to the very place that you have been avoiding. His personal stories are warm and riveting, and each one propels you forward towards the unknown. From David Bowie to Victor Frankl, he paints pictures of how we can release victimhood and create destiny.

In this new description of the Jungian shadow (minus the Greek mythology lesson), Loewen shows

  • How hidden wounds recycle pain, fuel addiction, and create burn out
  • What makes love stay
  • How to rewrite your story with generosity
  • How to say hello to your emotions in the backseat, without letting them drive
  • How coincidence can be your guide
  • What your own mortality might have to teach you

It might sound a little scary at first, but what you find here is a first-hand account of how this work is done, where to find support, and how this work will expand your life. You aren’t too busy to read this.

“Our childhood is stored up in our body. If we do not respond to our wounds, our body will present us with various afflictions to gain our attention. I believe parenting is the number one health issue on the planet. A study revealed that almost 100% of young adults, who felt unloved by their parents, had suffered a major illness by middle age. Do not be afraid to respond to your body’s needs and wounds. You can reparent yourself… Read Greg’s book and let him coach your heart, and heal your life and body.”

“In a most courageous way, Greg has invited us into his own “unexplored room.” With naked honesty and practical everyday language he shows us corners of complexity of living in this imperfect world. Actually, he does not just show us the room, he has us sit there awhile – in this rare opportunity, we are inspired and can glimpse not only the struggle but the joy and reward that is ours if we undertake such a journey!

He demonstrates an ability to self-reflect, be open to learning, and to eventually learn to love self and others more completely. This book should be required reading for all of us, but especially for every medical student, resident, and practicing physician. Their ability to be true healers depends on knowing themselves as instruments of the practice of medicine. A journey such as this is a gift to us, our families, our patients, and our world.”
