Choosing One’s Archetype
"Why did I do that again!?"
"Why do I keep ending up in the same situation?"
At some point in our lives, we have all ask ourselves questions like these. Oftentimes we don't always know why we do what we do. In the stories that make up our lives, we often find ourselves in roles we didn't even realize we chose to play. Psychiatrist, Carl Jung, called these roles and characters archetypes. They are models of people, behaviors or personalities. In the journey of our lives we draw from a repertoire of instinctive roles such as; father, mother, child, lover, creator, warrior, caregiver, and many others. It is said that there are as many archetypes as there are typical situations in life. Each of us is capable of playing any one of these countless characters at any time in the stories of our lives. Out of the countless archetypal roles available, each of us uses a select few more frequently than others. These are called our "dominant archetypes."
During this mini-retreat, we will spend some time learning from, gazing at and identifying with which archetypes are influential in our lives. Becoming aware of this can thus lead us along the pathway to self-discovery and growth, and transformation. Consciously choosing the right archetype for each chapter in our life-story can create a more fulfilling, successful life, where we use our archetypes instead of being controlled by them.
