A very basic overview on archetypes for anyone who isn't familiar.
Carl Jung is the modern pioneer of archetypes as observed through analyzing the human psyche, as is Joseph Campbell on comparative mythology and the archetypal structure of 'the hero's journey.' Though philosophic thought of archetypes can be traced back to Plato's theory of thought forms in Ancient Greece.
The key to working with archetypes on a personal level is that stories give texture, meaning, to life - and discovering how archetypes appear in our lives can create a deeper connection to ourselves, our endeavors, and others. In times when we might find ourselves feeling lost, confused, or detached from a feeling of value or worth, purpose or meaning in life, connecting with archetypes is one way to shift or revive our perceptions our story, situation, ourselves. There's a brilliant logic to be felt within their structure and flow, and we can use that to honor and integrate understanding of the different elements we discover to use to take our life to the next level.
I'll be covering these 12 main archetypes, spending 11 days in each:
