Re: 12 Major Archetypes

This list of Archetypes is very interesting. I have not seen this listing before as separated into the sections of Ego, Soul and Self.

Can you tell me where these come from? Are they your own structures or taken from another author?

I find this division of types very interesting and sensible. It's easy to lump all archetypes into one bag, as it were, but to separate them like this gives each one a different spin altogether.

Thank you for this!

Re: 12 Major Archetypes

Raymonde,
Yes, these are different. I had posted them so to keep them available for dream classes I had scheduled but with the intent to modify them with other inclusions. I will need to do a little research to find exactly where they came from but will do so and post the link.
