“‘Now what we blush about may be a product of our rearing,’ says physician philosopher Leon R. Kass, ‘but that we are embarrassed and feel shame means that we have a kind of innate concern with looking good to ourselves.’”  We are reared in P-B and experience both the conscious story and the influences of the unconscious story (the collective unconscious) that hand us our identity, one in which shame has a central role.

Shame is a part of the sensation center of the false self which has to do with self-esteem, among other things. Once we transcend P-B we no longer identify with the need for self-esteem and therefore, no longer experience shame.
