"Deep insight into your path and your understanding of other people's path."
"Illuminating, captivating, compelling."
Toni Wolff revealed a pair of binary oppositions in the psyche–Archetypal Nature is a modernization of her system for men and women. Each of Toni’s archetypes reveals a path by which we find fulfillment; they are eternal stories of identity; a prism by which we better understanding family and social roles; and given awareness they can become a portal for generational healing. Consciously recognizing these polarities allows us project less: we no longer imagine that everyone wants the same things that we do and we become better able give others what they really want.
In the webinar, Gary fleshes out the unique insights into personality that Toni Wolff discovered. Using film, television, historic, mythological and pop culture examples, he illustrates the qualities that define each archetype and the polarities between them. Together, we’ll explore the inherent tensions in society, looking at the nature of our relationships to: collective belonging and family; creativity, individuality and Eros; application, self-sufficiency and prowess; comprehension, problem-solving and imagination. Gary will point out possible shadows and highlight the best qualities of each archetype. Attendees will be encouraged to reflect and share their discoveries.

What are Archetypes?
Archetypes are natural structures of the psyche -- they transcend our personal history, our culture and our time. Part of the collective unconscious, they are shared worldwide. We gain sight of them in the similar themes of myth, legend and literature across cultures throughout time. In modern Western society, archetypes are especially evident in film and television. Archetypes underlie our behavior but, if we can become conscious of the particular archetypes that are living through us, we can avoid having them control us unconsciously. If we can own our story, we can keep it from owning us.
"There's nothing you can do that's more important than being fulfilled. You become a sign, you become a signal, transparent to transcendence; in this way, you will find, live, and become a realization of your own personal myth."
– Joseph Campbell
