According to C. G. Jung, the human personality embodies a divine ”spark” or animating essence, often described as the human soul or spirit.

Trauma survivors often report that their lives are a "living Hell." This pathological situation is created by the psyche's archetypal defenses and their depressive power over what one psychoanalyst called "the lost heart of the self," with its desire for love and intimate relationship.

In the workshop we will continue circumambulating the topic and attempt to answer some of the questions that arose during the lecture. We will add fairy tales and myths and additional images to help foster increased awareness of the shadowy other and the changes this archetype can bring about. This will be a participatory workshop - where you will engage with either a myth or a fairy tale in order to deeply connect with the ambivalent archetype of the Foreigner…
