What are archetypes and how they express themselves in our lives?
How can archetypal patterns help build psychological structures that can hold us?
In what ways may archetypes possess us and how can we differentiate ourselves from them and use them as positive forces in our lives?
What are the shadow aspects of the archetype and how can we integrate the opposite poles of the shadow to create wholeness?
How can we access archetypal energy that can provide resources for our personal lives and for the health of the planet?
This workshop will be guided by the questions above.
We will explore four archetypes using Systemic Constellation.
We will meet once a week for 4 weeks in a small group. Every member will have a chance to set up their own mini-Constellation every week (15 min. snapshot for each person) by setting up representatives from the group and exploring archetypes of the Mother, Queen, Lover and Wise Woman; or King, Warrior, Magician, Lover in their positive expression and their shadow aspects.
The participants will be able to see and understand how these archetypes show up in their own life, how they create unconscious patterns and how they can become a valuable resource in their psychic development. They will gain valuable insights into their life themes and forces that unconsciously drive them and will have new experiences and understanding which will open a possibility for change, growth, and healing.
"There are as many archetypes as there are typical situations in life. Endless repetition has engraved these experiences into our psychic constitution, not in the forms of images filled with content but at first only as forms without content, representing merely the possibility of a certain type of perception and action."
