Workshop Details 

We have both individual archetypal patterns and ones that we share. The Lover is one that we share because we all have the capacity to love and be loved. The question is how functional or dysfunctional is this dynamic. When it is functional we can give and receive in equal measure. We can be intimate with partners and forge deep connections with family and friends. We can form a devotional relationship to our spirituality that is nourishing, inspiring and joyful. When it is dysfunctional we are often unable to receive true love or intimacy; unable to receive praise or compliments; unable to hear the whispering of our soul or feel the presence of grace. When it is dysfunctional our capacity to love can manifest as obsession which can have a destructive effect on our physical or mental health. Join me as we explore the many facets of the Lover Archetype.

Learning Objective Participants Can Expect From This Event

  • An understanding of archetypal dynamics and unconscious patterns. How we learned them, who we learnt them from, and how early trauma creates dysfunctional patterns.
  • A deep dive into our relationship with the Lover – with the ways we give and receive love – so that we can do the same for our clients.
  • Develop tools to develop the courage to open our heart, receive love and develop intimacy. Develop tools to manage our hidden neediness which if unchecked can turn into thought loops or obsession.

Who is This Workshop Appropriate For?

  • Therapists and anyone interested in exploring their own archetypal dynamics

How May This Workshop Impact Your Practice?

  • An increased ability to hold space for others and provide insights for them in doing their shadow work.
