Gary S. Bobroff ~ Archetypal Nature

Gary S. Bobroff

Saturday Morning Talk:
The Archetypal Nature

November 19, 2016 (10 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.)
Sr. Luca Room,  The Casa Franciscan Renewal Center

Toni Wolff revealed a pair of binary oppositions in the psyche. Archetypal Nature is a modernization of her system for men and women. Each of Toni’s archetypes reveals a path by which we find fulfillment; they are eternal stories of identity; a prism by which we better understand family and social roles; and given awareness they can become a portal for generational healing. This system unveils unconscious motivational-behavioral structures and offers profound personal and interpersonal insight. In this introductory lecture, Gary will illustrate these archetypes through film, television, mythology and culture.

Saturday Afternoon Workshop:
Wolff’s Archtype in Film, Television & Pop Culture

November 19, 2016 (1 p.m. – 5 p.m.)
Sr. Luca Room,  The Casa Franciscan Renewal Center

In this workshop, Gary fleshes out Wolff’s archetype system using film, television, historic and pop culture examples. We’ll look at the unique strengths and shadows of each archetype and attendees will be encouraged to reflect and share their discoveries. Together, we’ll explore inherent tensions in our society including those between collective belonging and individual freedom the and role that our personal archetypes play there. Consciously recognizing these archetypal polarities allows us project less: we no longer imagine that everyone wants the same things that we do and we become better able give others what they really want.
