ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
How do we recognize our unique gift?
How do we understand what our story is?
What does the myth of our lives look like?
A Jungian archetypal lens offers us a perspective by which we can see ancient, timeless patterns playing out through our lives and through the lives of others. Through recognizing these eternal patterns, we can move toward uncovering a deeper truth in our stories. Recognizing ourselves in these ancient forms helps us to live more fully who we actually are – and helps us to see that our path is connected to something larger than ourselves.
What are the archetypes that motivate us and provide us with our greatest satisfaction in the world? How are these archetypal stories present in our lives and in the lives of the people we love?
Are we living our most authentic and deepest archetypal story or not?
In our workshops, writing and presentations, we look at the ways in which we find our identity in particular archetypal stories, their cultural significance and how they are supported by our families and society (or not). We seek to recognize ourselves in the ancient patterns of human nature and in doing so to claim an archetypal identity that helps us to step forward more fully into who we are. Along the way, we may come to see we are living new versions of eternal paths.
This work builds upon those pioneers of the archetypal frontier, including C. G. Jung, Toni Wolff, Robert L. Moore & Douglas Gillette, and Tad & Noreen Guzie.
CEU's are available for professionals. (Call The Mandala Center or contact the presenters for more information on CEU's)
