The Body: Our Container for the Archetypal Experience

Experiencing archetypal energy can be powerful and emotional.  Our bodies have to process these happenings as well as the emotions they activate.  But what if our defenses won’t let us?  In this presentation, we will explore how the bodily components of internal defensive structures can work against the embodiment of archetypal experience but how, once recognized and reverenced within the therapeutic relationship, can lead to a sense of wholeness.
