Remyth Your Story: Integrate Your Feminine and Masculine Archetypes.
Author Dr. Jean Benedict Raffa explores the interface between psychology, spirituality, and your life’s myth in her newest Nautilus Award-winning book, The Soul’s Twins: Emancipate Your Feminine and Masculine Archetypes.
Our families and social groups condition us from childhood to have certain beliefs and attitudes about gender differences. Our lack of knowledge about eight powerful archetypes traditionally related to gender can have painful lifelong psychological and spiritual consequences. Emancipating these archetypes from gender stereotypes enables us to change our personal myth and frees us to develop loving relationships with ourselves and others.
This presentation will include a big dream from the author’s childhood that shaped her life’s myth, motivated her studies in Jungian psychology, and inspired her creation of the Partnership Profile. This is an informal self-assessment that helps users to separate gender stereotypes from their innate masculine and feminine archetypes. Participants will receive a pdf of the self-assessment and a handout about how to work with their results when they register for the presentation. Dr. Raffa will lead a Q & A discussion about the meaning of their results following a PowerPoint presentation.
