"All the most powerful powerful ideas in history go back to archetypes."
C G JUNG

Co-create with the power of the universe!

This is a 40 day archetypal challenge created to guide you through a cycle of archetypal identities to identify & engage them by applying their skills & powers in your life. It is an experiential & pragmatic exploration of living archetypes designed to help you understand archetypal influences, heal wounds, claim capacities & view the world through an archetypal lens. Come create an archetypal journal, compass & blueprint to help you navigate & transform your life.

What is an archetype? 

An archetype means "original form" and it refers to the universal symbols, characters, themes, roles, patterns and images repeated throughout nature & culture. Archetypes are in us & around us as the building blocks of creation. In this course you will explore an archetypal perspective & experience in you & your life, society, world & universe but ultimately it is about you embodying archetypes as a way to co-create with universal power. After an overview of 30 archetypes, you will be guided to identify & map your own archetypes, so you can see how they manifest in your life . . . & co-create with their power.
Come on a 40 day pilgrimage

Archetypal Journal: contains it all

An archetypal journal will help you create continuity in your experience from beginning to end, organizing the material to include dreams, synchronicities & all of the meaning elements of your lived experience that inform your archetypal journey. As you go travel, you will draw, sketch, free journal, collage . . . whatever you feel called to do in your own way. This archetypal diary of your experience will serve as a memory anchor & compass to help you navigate. Each day will have a journal prompt & activity to guide you.
Archetypes are the psychic lenses through which we view ourselves and the world around us. If you know your archetypes--and not just yours, if you know how to perceive the world in archetypes, through archetypes everything changes. Everything. Because you have two things: you can see through one eye which is impersonal, and through the other, which is personal. 
Caroline Myss

See through an Archetypal Lens together

Come explore, apply & embody an archetypal perspective in your creative life with the same support structure:
  • Partner and group work to deepen your exploration
  • Private social media hub to mirror and reflect an archetypal perspective 
  • Engaging, Simple, flexible archived content for ongoing  growth
  • Safe transformative container with live meetings with questions & dialogue
  • Archetypal and evidence-based power practices to apply to 
  • Personal and transpersonal perspective

Who is this path for? (You +)

This course is for you if you want to explore and apply archetypes in your life to understand and embody their influence and power. You will engage and interact with archetypes to be able to recognize and embody them personally, professionally, socially & ecologically. While your archetypal identities evolve, it can also be worked with strategically & continually (like the zodiac) to harness & co-create with archetypal energy & influence. Like any pilgrimage, you will continue life after but with a new understanding & tools to help you.
The contents of the collective unconscious are archetypes, primordial images that reflect basic patterns that are common to us all and which have existed universally since the dawn of time. 
C G Jung

Archetypal power & you

As always, you embark on a path that includes centering, gentle yoga, mindfulness, visioning, dreaming, movement, eco-psychology, breathwork and (of course) creativity but all centered around archetypes. More than most classes, you will be observing & integrating your life experience as you look for & through archetypes. It also weaves in imaginal exercises and identity play . . . even dress up (if you want). Dressing and acting the part are powerful ways to increase your abilities along archetypal lines to increase deficits and become well rounded. Each archetype expresses uniquely through you. Have fun!

Structure held in a circle of the Self

As we explore many archetypes, we are held within the circle of the Self (as we always are). The normal structure of circle support is offered & is outlined after the course content. We also open & close in circle at the beginning & end of class along with a monthly drop in. Yet, this class has a unique relationship to the circle & center. As you imagine into, encounter, experience & explore the archetypes, remember that you are the center & periphery of the circle to stabilize your identity. You are both. All the other archetypes are energies, powers & influences, but you are not subject to them. You work with them.
God is an infinite sphere, the center of which is everywhere, the circumference nowhere.

Patterns of Creativity

Are you an archetypal artist as healer, oracle, scientist, magician . . . or do you combine all 4 (more?). The archetypes work together, combining & overlapping to offer different ways of creating. A healer creates art as a way to heal themselves or others like an art therapist. They may also identify as a magician, mystic, psychologist, empiricist & more . . . like Jung. 

Archetypal Creator/Creatrix

The creator/creatrix archetype is the most essential to our course . . . because we are creating. This archetype is divided into the creator (masculine) & creatrix (feminine) creative form. Even though we all have an inner feminine & masculine (anima & animus), the 2 forms are separated to help us distinguish between & fully claim or embody them. Just as all archetypes are neutral, the creator/rix has a "positive" & "negative" expression. An exploration of this archetype initiates our process to know ourselves & creative process better. Each person is unique & we begin with a creative archetypal profile.
Fate is how your life unfolds when you let fear determine your choices. A path of destiny reveals itself to you when you confront your fear and make conscious choices.

Archetypal Structure

They also hold socio-political power. Hence the older man is wise and older woman is a witch or a crone. Archetypal consciousness is a powerful change agent and a necessary component of our conscious revolution. 

Archetypes offer different gifts

On a fundamental level archetypes are energy given form. As you tap the energy you will connect with reservoirs of power. Archetypes express in images and universal patterns or motifs from the collective unconscious. They are the basis of religions, myths, and stories that stand the test of time. 

Archetypal of the life life cycle

They also hold socio-political power. Hence the older man is wise and older woman is a witch or a crone. Archetypal consciousness is a powerful change agent and a necessary component of our conscious revolution. 
In archetypes, there is the Nurturer, and the Warrior. Different kinds of strengths that, ideally, complement each other and are equally respected.

What people are saying . . .

This kit is deeply psycho-active or soul activating. It is often described as life changing, offering the gift of getting to know your soul and yourself. It is not easy, but it is profoundly rewarding and life affirming, touching upon the core of who you are and why you are here, your heart's purpose and soul's call.

Archetypal Power Activate!

Not only is my PhD in archetypal psychology, but my deep interest has always been the power of the common truths that bind us. When I was young I called them "cross cultural constants," not knowing the word archetype yet. Now I struggle with the identities and powers that they represent. I am an artist, yet struggle with the starving part. I am a mother, yet struggle with giving too much. 

Your Inner Archetypes

Archetypal eye & lens

Of course, the creatrix and creation itself are really the guides--the conscious creative energy in which we live move and have our being. We need merely reach out with thought, feeling, or hand and the creativity of the universe is there at our touch.

Coursework and play . . .

As you move through the coursework, each week's lesson will "show up" and reveal itself in living images and experiences that deepen your insight. Walking in this way, brings you to greater consciousness, as it weaves your inner and outer, unconscious and conscious lives and worlds together. This union is the healing nature of the soul that unites opposites to connect the dots and see the big picture of the Self and soul.

Bonus: create an archetypal portrait

This can take many forms, drawing upon your archetypal course journal for insights & experiences to give you the material to create a painting, collage or doll. It could be on your creative altar, hung in your room or used as a business card. Obviously, the form it takes & how you use it is part of the art & archetype. They are up to you but this is a powerful way to create a memory anchor to embody archetypal energy & spirit in matter as a magical talisman.
Archetypes are universal, and, in subtle or extravagant ways, interchangeable.

Creating a container for soul

Additional containment comes from creating sacred space in an art studio, creativity altar, and in your art which can be seen as your "church" and "cathedral," housing your soul. In these spaces you create a place of renewal and retreat for you to come back to again and again, whether creating art, lighting a candle, meditating, or doing gentle yoga. These spaces help to cocoon you as an alchemical container of transformation throughout your process, nurturing your creative practice in your body and a body of art. Additionally, a container will be created with a circle ritual that opens and closes the class along with an individual session with me to open and close your personal transformation. 

A structure to CONTAIN the process

This process is contained by your soul but also by 3 circles of support made by you and your classmates. Each circle expands with you as you create your opus, designed to offer different levels of containment as you individuate. These circles reflect Jung's process as archetypal or universal.

Alone

You travel alone.

To really experience the darkness of the dark night of the soul, you need to be alone with your soul. So, you walk alone.

Partner

A partner helps to mirror you.

Jung viewed his patients art and worked with them one on one. So you work with a power partner to help contain you.

Group

A circle to discuss and reflect.

Jung led his inner circle on this path, creating a container for group growth. So, we meet in monthly zoom circles

You are many archetypes at once.

There are many archetypes and each person's embodiment is unique. Everyone has a mother (and probably a mother complex), yet the archetype is different if you have child or give birth to a book or movement. The trick is to discover YOUR relationship to the archetypes and then work & play with them.

Follow in archetypal footsteps.

Archetypal Divination: Tarot

Jung said that you cannot go directly into the unconscious but if you create unconsciously with your hands your soul would bring you a vision. Imagination has the roots magi for magic and image and it is the heart of this visionary path. As you walk you are activating your imagination and remembering how to play with your soul's images that guide you. Open your eyes, heart, and mind to a new way of seeing and being. Learn to navigate by starlight through the dark night of the soul.
