What are archetypes? They are universal and symbolic patterns of human experiences, and they represent what drives and inspires us as well as how we make choices and where our struggles are. For example, the archetypes of Mother, Child, Victim, Hero, Explorer and Artist are patterns that are easily understood throughout the world. And the number of archetypes that exist is endless. What are some of your archetypes?
