Archetypes are universally known repeated patterns of human experience. These themes are known to all of us. The word Archetype in origin mean symbolic pattern.
By exploring the archetypes, we open ourselves up to being more of ourselves. Think of yourself as a big mansion house. Behind the door of each room is a wonderful gift you can bring to the world. We are taught how to act, we learn how to fit in and be acceptable. This process of socialisation happens to us as children. In your life you have unconsciously closed off doors to your many gifts. Now the corridors may be covered in cobwebs as you have accessed them.
You are stuck! Why can’t you move forward and do what you want in your life?
You are trying to do everything with only half the toolkit! You’re having to using a hammer when you need a spanner. A hammer is fine, but you need other tools for different jobs.
How do you access the qualities you need to make a difference in your life?
The good news is you can access these energies and bring the qualities into your life.
Read about each Archetype and notice whether it is something available to you in your life. If you want to transform your life, these workshops can guide you to your gifts.
