An archetype is an original model of a person, energy form, or ideal that is universally recognized. We find archetypes in myths, folklore, oral stories and artwork throughout the world. Joseph Campbell’s The Hero With a Thousand Faces, Allan Hunter’s Stories We Need to Know, and Carl Jung’s work all explore archetypes. In this workshop we will explore a different archetype each session. We will identify and work with our own personal archetypes and make art using the stories, myths, gifts and characters of our personal archetypes.
The tarot is one of the oldest and richest sources of archetypes. The mythological structure within the tarot is a guide that can help us understand our life experiences and spiritual development. By placing our life stories within a larger context we can step back and witness themes and patterns that we find hard to see while immersed in our life process. We can witness what myths we are living by, what new myths or stories are emerging and which old myths or stories are being challenged. The journey of the Fool through the twenty one archetypal expressions lays the plot or connecting thread for the process of individualism and spiritual growth. The archetypes can show us what gifts or strengths we are ready to claim or what unrealized potential we are avoiding. This symbolic matrix leads us to new realizations and
ways of perceiving. Moving through the archetypal journey as a way to witness, understand, and facilitate your growth process is an exciting journey.
Archetypal psychology is combining Jungian, Eastern, and traditional psychology and seeing how these ideas are blended in the archetypes.
