Workshop Details

There is a complaint that Narcissism is a very overused term these days. On the one hand this can serve to undermine or reduce compassion for people who are living in situations of coercive control or outright abuse. On the other hand it can (hopefully) make us see that energetically we are all somewhere on the spectrum of Narcissist/Empath. Children are natural narcissists but we (hopefully) teach them the joy of empathy so that they find their balance between the two. A little narcissism is healthy and too much empathy can result in having no boundaries. Many people did not have this healthy relationship modelled for them. Join me as we explore this dynamic so that we can move away from the rigid boxes of good/bad; either/or into a more fluid understanding of exactly where we are between the two. This can change on a situation by situation basis so requires us to hone our intuitive gifts and to dive deep into patterns that we’ve absorbed both ancestrally and culturally.

Learning Objective Participants Can Expect From This Event

  • An understanding of archetypal dynamics and unconscious patterns. How we learned them and who we learnt them from.
  • A deep dive into our relationship with the Narcissist and the Empath so that we can do the same for our clients.
  • Develop tools to “course correct” between opposing poles so that we’re not too defended, in which case our hearts are closed and not too undefended, in which case we can be vampired!

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.
