Jung Society meeting addresses archetypes

Feb. 19 at 7 p.m. at North Island College

The Comox Valley C. G. Jung Society presents Gary S. Bobroff speaking on Our Archetypical Nature on Friday, Feb. 19 at 7 p.m. at North Island College.

Toni Wolff and C.G. Jung discovered pairs of binary opposites in the psyche now known as the Myers-Briggs indicator.

They also discovered deeper constructs beyond personality types. Archetypal Nature is a modernization of this system.

Each of Wolff’s archetypes reveals a path to find fulfillment: they are eternal stories of identity; a lens to better understanding family and social roles; and with awareness, they can become a portal for generational healing.

Using film, television, historic, mythological and pop culture examples, Bobroff illustrates the qualities that define each archetype and the polarities between them, pointing out the possible shadows and best qualities of each archetype.

Bobroff has an MA in psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute, and is the developer and lead facilitator of Our Archetypal Nature. An international speaker, author and workshop leader, he presents in an accessible and engaging visual format.

The presentation — in Room 203 in the Tyee building at NIC — costs $10 at the door, or $5 for Jung Society members.
