In November we will be exploring what we mean by archetypes. It was a year ago our first cohort of Shamanic Teacher Training completed. We use archetypes as a way to navigate and explore throughout this training.
What are Archetypes?
– Archi means ‘the first’. They are the primary or first things from which all phenomena
come – they are potentials that reside in the ocean of being, the imaginal world.
– Archetype, the more familiar term, combines ‘archi’ with ‘type’ – meaning
‘impression’, from the Greek to beat or strike, to mold.
– Archetype is the first expression of the archi in identifiable form – though not
physically. It means to prefigure or foreshadow.
– The Archetypes, which reside in the imaginal world, prefigure the forms they
become in our world.
