foundations VIDEO COURSE

Welcome! On the second half of this page, you'll find all of the video sessions for the Archetypal Nature Foundations Video Course and the course outline and instructions about how to best use this material.


Archetypal Nature carries on a partially lost Jungian tradition and traces its roots most directly to the deep psychological insight of Antonia "Toni" Wolff.  Toni was a close companion of C. G. Jung and one of the earliest Jungian analysts.  She was president of the Zurich Psychological Club from 1916 to 1945.  In 1934, she gave a lecture entitled Structural Forms of the Feminine Psyche that described the essential dichotomies that we carry forward in our work today (read it here).  Others, including Tad and Noreen Guzie, have strongly influenced and contributed this work. For more on the origins and lineage of this work, please see our Roots page.


"It's like you've discovered this big place, like Yosemite or Big Sur . . .
I'm stunned by how much it means to me."
– Gavin Frye, MFT, Los Angeles, CA
