Using psychological type and Jungian archetypes as a framework, this session invites you to reflect on the parenting journey from the perspective of the caregiver and the perspective of self-care. Interactive exercises will examine how consciously giving voice to the challenges and opportunities involved in caring for yourself, your children and your parents can help you to see more clearly the connections between your own style and experiences and the archetypal stories and typological patterns that shape the wider culture(s) of which you are a part. Join me to discover how putting your story into words and images can be a source of inspiration for meaningful change, type development and healing.
This workshop is designed to make your parenting journey more surefooted, intentional and regenerative by:
- Valuing caregiving and self-care as sources of wisdom that deepen empathy and intimacy and forge a new sense of identity and self-direction
- Broadening your coping repertoire by applying type development theory, for example, tapping into non-preferred functions as a source of strength and renewal
- Analyzing parenting challenges – illness, grief, shifting roles, finding balance - in relation to personality type, self-awareness and cultural archetypes
