Generating Archetypal Mind States with Michael Taft

Understanding archetypes is a powerful way to work with your own psychology. Popular and effective systems such as IFS leverage archetypal patterns to achieve their therapeutic results. Beyond “fixing” the “broken” parts of ourselves, however, we can also work with archetypes to greatly empower and enhance our lives. By learning to generate and sustain archetypal mind states at will, we can become more effective, more compassionate, more present, and more awake. 

Week 1

This week you will learn about archetypes; what they are, why they matter, and how they are at the basis of our psychology; you will also learn about how the ego is constructed and experienced, and learn to see through the “transparent tunnel” of the ego to see it as an object, rather than feeling like you “are” it. 

Week 2

This week is all about doing! Together, we will learn specific methods to generate archetypal mind states. The two specific archetypes you will learn to embody are Magician and Mother Earth. Learning to generate these two archetypal mind states will not only be transformational in itself, but also give you the template for generating any other archetypal mind state you wish. 

Week 3

Going Deeper: Archetypal Dialoguing. Once you can reliably generate an archetypal mind state, another possibility opens up: dialoguing with archetypes. In archetypal dialogue, you gain access to the wisdom and viewpoint of archetypal mind states in daily life.
