May 2nd: Archetype & the Five Buddha Families [webinar]

Webinar 2 may 2023 from 19:30 till 21:00 (Amsterdam time), in English.

Archetype & the Five Buddha Families – Parallels in Personality Systems East & West

In this presentation Gary S. Bobroff will present the fascinating similarities between Toni Wolff’s archetypal model and the Chögyam Trungpa’s  Five Buddha families personality system.  

Just below the surface of our collective awareness lie eternal pathways that illustrate our deepest sources of identity and fulfillment

Each of Wolff’s four archetypes are mirrored by a Buddha family orientation: Warrior-Amazon (Karma / action-oriented), Sage-Mediatrix (Vajra / reflection-oriented), Father-Mother (Ratna / tribal-oriented), Seeker-Companion (Padma / individual-oriented).

Using film clips, television, history, mythology and pop culture examples, we’ll explore the qualities that define each of these character types. Come explore a fresh path to better understanding of personality and gain genuinely new insight into ourselves and others.  

The stunning coordination of these models demonstrates the reality of the collective unconscious and reinforces the value of this approach to understanding human nature.
