The Archetypal Nature Foundations Course illustrates and expands upon Toni Wolff’s original insights into personality. Using film, television, historic, mythological and pop culture examples, we’ll explore the qualities that define each archetype: their shadow and gold. We’ll discuss the inherent tensions between these energies and our experiences of them. Toni’s archetypes are eternal stories of identity and consciously recognizing them allows us project less: we no longer imagine that everyone wants the same things that we do. We become better able give others what they really need and want from us.
