Embracing the Child Online Class
Realizing how our own child archetype responds to and views the world helps us navigate questions of responsibility versus dependence as well as seriousness versus playfulness. The gift of the child archetype is the ability to balance the wisdom that age brings with the open-mindedness and carefree nature of our youth. A grave, cautious life independent of anyone can feel closed off and cold. A reckless, happy-go-lucky life dependent on others for everything can feel ungrounded and unproductive. This survivor archetype is unique because there are multiple versions of the child archetype, seven or more depending on who you ask. In this 90-minute online class, we explore the light and shadow of these seven archetypes: wounded child, orphan child, nature child, eternal child, magical child, divine child, and adult child.
