Jungian and Archetypal Pattern Analyst
Like the pieces on a chess board, we play the game of life according to the pattern prescribed to the archetypal forms that emerge from the energetic field. There is a universal coherence in the mandates and proclivities of the Queen that should not be confused with the Pawn. A novice chess player can hold about 6 moves in advance, while a Chess Master can hold as many as 20. While not proscriptive, archetypal pattern analysis is predictive. An archetypal pattern analysis can read and translate the field, the form, and the repetitive or unfolding pattern of a life, a business, a creative endeavour, or a relationship. Whether in the therapeutic milieu as a Jungian Analyst or registered psychotherapist, or in mentoring or consulting, an ontological translation of the pattern embed in behaviour can help to realign energies and produce generative results.
master Dream Pattern Analyst
There is much that passes for dream interpretation in the current Spirit of the Times. Jung and his contemporaries were more interested in the Spirit of the Depths. Dreams are to the individual what fairy tales are to the collective, or myths are to an epoch. Knowing what and who is dreaming us is key. Learning to see the disruptive patterns of the complexes as interference to the flow of psyche energy can alter a life. At the heart of every dream is the systolic and dystolic beating of the archetype. Like plaque or cholesterol, the complexes or the subjective lens often impede the movement of objective truth and archetypal energy. The archetypes are nature and like nature, they are self regulatory, self organizing and ever striving to manifest fully in a life. Dreams show us the map, and archetypal dream pattern analysis invites us into the adventure of the unexplored territory.
Writer, Teacher, Mentor, Jungian analyst
Poet, Alfred Lord Tennyson penned, "...words like nature half reveal and half conceal the soul within". Words, nature, dreams, and story are sacred texts. They inscribe and articulate the pattern and the meaning of our lives. As a teacher for over 40 years, as Jungian analyst for close to 20 years, as a writer, iconographer, grandmother and steward of our 100acre woods, my experience is as vast and varied as my blooms. I am currently serving as the Director of Studies for The Assisi Institute, Curriculum Chair for The Art of Fairy Tale Analysis certification course, former Training analyst and frequent faculty member with the C. G. Jung Institute, Zurich, and Managing Editor of The Assisi Journal. I operate a full time online analytical praxis that has an international reach (Russia, Italy, Poland, France, Ireland, Australia, Colombia, USA and Canada). I trained extensively with tribal Elders and I am initiated in indigenous teachings and traditions; namely, Mohawk, Annisaabe, and Zimbabwe. In the inscape of soul and in the outer landscape of our forest and gardens, I cultivate the soil, seeds, roots, sprouts, buds, blooms, and fruits with my analysands, my students, my mentees, my rich circle of friends and family, and ultimately with Nature Herself.
The Wind, One Brilliant Day
by Antonio Machado
The wind, one brilliant day, called
to my soul with an odor of jasmine.
"In return for the odour of my jasmine, I'd like all the odour of your roses."
"I have no roses; all the flowers
in my garden are dead."
"Well then, I'll take the withered petals and the yellow leaves and the waters of the fountain."
The wind left. And I wept. And I said to myself:
"What have you done with the garden that was entrusted to you?"
Translated by Robert Bly
“At times I feel as if I am spread out over the landscape and inside things, and am myself living in every tree, in the splashing of the waves, in the clouds and the animals that come and go, in the procession of the seasons. There is nothing in the Tower that has not grown into its own form over the decades, nothing with which I am not linked. Here everything has its history, and mine; here is space for the spaceless kingdom of the world's and the psyche's hinterland.”
