In our roiling modern world, it has never been more important to deepen our understanding of the Archetypes: representations of the energies that motivate what we want, who we are, and whom we love. Our exploration begins with the Feminine, articulated by Jung’s long-time collaborator and lover, Toni Wolff. Who was she, this mere “slip of a girl” who landed on Jung’s doorstep when she was 22 years of age. She began as his patient, but went on to infuse his life with inquiry, inspiration, and ideas of her own. She presented her model, Structural Forms of the Feminine Psyche, in 1934.

On Saturday's experiential workshop entitled Archetypes for Personal Growth: A Creative Exploration and Mapping of Your Unique Inner Life, we will create a safe place where participants can explore and map their inner archetypes without pressure to share their intimate life with the rest of us. In an individual journey of discovery, we will ask, “What Archetypal energies live in me, and how does my knowledge of them help me build a better, fuller life?” We will explore the tension of the opposites in each Archetype, and how we can work with the shadow to find the gold. We will use a spectrum of creative tools, from guided meditation, journaling, art, some body movement and sculpting, sharing in dyads and larger group sharing, as not everyone will manifest their creative exploration in the same ways.

Tickets for both days can be purchased separately.
