Working with Archetypes: Why Do it? – Episode 51

What does the word “archetype” mean? How do we engage in archetypal work? What are the benefits and gifts of working with archetypal energies?

In today’s episode, we discuss the purposes of working with archetypes, as well as the potent gifts they bring. We explore the three different archetypal levels and delve into tips on working with archetypes to help us awaken to our hearts’ desires, step into our deepest truths, traverse realms of consciousness, and reveal the hidden within.

If you’re looking to dive deep into the practices and energies we explore have a look at our online workshops and retreats on our online programs page.

Welcome to ReWilding for Women!

ReWilding For Women is sacred container, a resource center, a women’s circle. It was created by women, for women, to help us peel back inauthentic layers we have absorbed from the society around us. To guide us along the path of feminine awakening and soul reclamation. To teach us to trust what we already know, that sacredness, that magic, that endless love comes from within, not from without.

Our practices and teachings incorporate tantra, shamanism, astrology, meditation, archetypal embodiment, and personal inquiry to go far beyond each of these realms. To go deep into the body, the self, the soul, the places where only you can uncover your ancient gifts and your everlasting connection with the universe around you.
