The term archetype was not coined by Jung, its origin is in patristic writings. However Jung’s unique contribution was to use the idea of archetype in a psychological sense with reference to contemporary life. Jung saw archetypes as ambivalent, potentially positive and negative.
Psychological growth occurs when we attempt to bring the unconscious content to consciousness.
In this interactive workshop we will explore and become familiar with patterns of various archetypal figures and patterns of contemporary life, which are both powerful and creative or powerfully destructive to human life and family relationships. Family in this workshop is seen as the meaningful and or difficult relationships we have with a group of people who represent family to us.
