Archetypes are portraits of instincts, structural elements in Jungian philosophy of the collective unconscious that communicate to the conscious mind via images. These four deep structures of the objective psyche are transpersonal and encompass a quadrated order common to all in the form of King/Queen, Magician/Medial Woman, Male/Female Warriors and Male/Female Lovers.
This class will explore these four paths or portals and how they map beautifully onto the four main yogas: Raja, Jnana, Karma and Bhakti.
Gabriel will discuss the evolved aspects of these qualities as well as their shadow counterparts. You will learn which environments give the greatest access to these potentials in their mature form and how to diagnose one’s strengths and weaknesses in each area in order to foster the development of the Great Self.
Each session will teach asanas that promote contemplative focus, mental clarity, skillful action and heart opening.
Erich Neumann, an early student of Jung’s, describes in The Origins and History of Consciousness, “archetypal structural elements of the psyche are psychic organs upon whose functioning the well-being of the individual depends, and whose injury has disastrous consequences.”
