Facing the Victim
Aired Thursday, August 6th at 6:30pm MDT
In this 90-minute recorded online class we focus on the Victim archetype which is one of the four survivor archetypes identified by Caroline Myss in her work on Sacred Contracts. Each of us embodies the four essential survivor archetypes from birth to death: Victim, Saboteur, Prostitute and Child. They are the foundation of what it means to be human.
The survivor archetypes are hard to embrace because we identify them first and foremost by their shadow. And let’s face it, who wants to admit they play the victim?
It is really hard to focus on the light aspect of the survivors, and the victim has an especially bad reputation in society. Victims are seen as weak, timid, and, in some cases, less than human. When we think of a victim we think of a sniveling, cowering being that is fully entrenched in suffering and absolutely helpless. For some people it hurts to be in the same room as a victim.
This is the stereotype of the victim. Let’s explore the full picture of the victim. All archetypes have a shadow and a LIGHT aspect. The light aspect carries great power and gifts. In the same way the name “victim” makes us cringe, the gifts of the victim can rise us up.
The victim is, as Caroline Myss says, our “Guardian of Self-Esteem.” The victim in the light aspect is the archetype that helps us set healthy boundaries and stand up for ourselves. The victim protects us from being victimized and aids us in overcoming old wounds. This archetype is critical for surviving hardship, deflecting injury and building a strong base of personal power.
This 90-minute online victim archetype class covers the familiar shadow of the victim, the unrecognized gifts of the victim, how to release negative patterns of the victim, and how to come to terms with maintaining the foundation of respect and power you need to be effective in the world.
In this recorded online class, Stacey shares how to:
- Break free from the shadow of the victim
- Set healthy boundaries
- Cultivate self-compassion
- Tap into the power of the Guardian of Self Esteem

What are Archetypes?
Archetypes are universal patterns of power that coordinate how we think and feel. All we have to do is say “angel” or “hermit” and instantly others know what kind of person we are talking about. This is indicative of the amount of power that each archetype contains.
The Greek origin of the word “archetype” comes from the words archē meaning “beginning or original” and typos meaning “pattern, model or type”. Thus an archetype is the original or first pattern from which all others are made of.
