The Council Suit   -   The Archetypal Suit

 

I am the One who
hears music in the silence

Archetypes are mythological patterns that structure our experience. Embedded in race memory, they pervade the culture’s founding legends, folk tales and contemporary narratives. Their motifs appear in our personal dreams and collective fantasies. The panoply of archetypes includes the Sage, Crone, Nymph, Great Mother, Hero, Warrior, Muse, Divine Child, Priest or Priestess and Healer. The archetypes are not beings, but templates. When we engage respectfully with the images through which they manifest, we enter into dynamic relationship with the ordering principles of the Collective Unconscious.
