Sacred Archetypes Workshop Trilogy

Part II: The Sacred Masculine

Sunday | April 11 & 18 | 11 AM – 12:30 PM CT | via Zoom

What’s an Archetype? There are patterns of thought that can empower us or limit us.  Some patterns of thought, called Archetypes, can be represented symbolically.  In this series of workshops, we will take nine archetypes found in mythology and learn how to access the unity powers associated with them.  We will also show the active and passive shadows of each archetype and how to overcome them. 

These archetypes are not limited to any one gender.  We are temporarily accepting the traditional groupings of Masculine and Feminine for these workshops out of convenience. The intention is to access all the archetypes that work for us.

The Sacred Masculine (Sessions 3 & 4 in April)
We can access the energy from both Feminine and Masculine archetypes regardless of our gender.  Carl Jung theorized that Women will access more of their Masculine Archetypes in the last half of their lives, while Men will access more of their Feminine Archetypes. 

The April 11 class, titled Divine Masculine Archetypes, examines the positive attributes of key masculine archetypes. These are Ruler, Warrior, Mage, and Lover.  The Ruler integrates.  The Warrior asserts.  The Mage transforms.  The Lover enlivens.  We will explain these archetypes and how they relate to each other.  We will also discuss examples in mythology and religion, the arts, and popular culture.

The April 18 class, titled Divine Masculine Shadow Work, examines the shadow attributes of these four types.  It is in the shadow masculine archetypes where we see “toxic” masculinity.  We will explore how these shadow aspects hold us back.  This class shows how to connect to our Sacred Masculine in a healthy, integrated way.  We will journal, meditate, and share in small groups about our experiences in overcoming the obstacles to our spiritual growth.

The Sacred Union (Sessions 5 & 6 in May) is about awakening and joining together the Sacred Feminine and Sacred Masculine energies within us.  Topics include how sacred union is accomplished in various traditions and exercises for integrating these different thought patterns based on each person’s self-analysis throughout the series.

Registration is required. Zoom details to be provided to all registrants.

    Ongoing – The Trance of Scarcity

    Tuesday | February 9 – March 23 | 7 – 8:30 PM CT | via Zoom

    This class is based on the book, “The Trance of Scarcity,” by Victoria Castle.

    “If struggling were the way to get there, we’d all be there by now.”

    As we read and discuss each chapter, practice the exercises (which include tithing of our time, talent and treasure), we will identify the elements of the ‘trance’ and find ways to break free from them, giving us the freedom to live a life where ease and plenty emanate from us as naturally as our breath. 

    We will work with specific practices that can be used to change our stories–to identify and interrupt negative, constraining patterns and replace them with more positive and liberating ones to achieve greater freedom, fulfillment, and satisfaction. 

    This is a tithing class — a journey into abundance.

    The book is available on Amazon, Apple Books, Kindle, and Bookshop.org.

    Registration required. Zoom details will be provided to all registrants.

    The Anatomy of Peace

    Thursday | March 4 – April 29 | 7 – 8:30 PM CT | via Zoom

    This class is offered as part of the Stronger Together Equity Initiative at Unity Minneapolis.

    Peace – are we doing it wrong?  You are warmly invited to join us to discover the first step in creating peace in your life, neighborhood, city, country, and the world.  Peace alone won’t solve our complex problems; however, those problems can’t begin to be solved without it.

    What if, in our conflicts with others, there is something we want more than solutions? What if, individually and collectively, we systematically misunderstand the causes of our conflicts? And what if, therefore, we unwittingly perpetuate the very problems we think we are trying to solve?

    This class is based on the book, “The Anatomy of Peace”, authored by the Arbinger Institute. It is simply one of the most practical approaches around for understanding how YOU can be an agent for peace. Through reading, journaling, and discussion, we’re going to take a journey together to understand our contribution to peace and conflict. Come, explore a new thought and a new order to finding peace.

    The book is available on Apple Book, Bookshop.org, Amazon and the public library.

    Suggested Love Offering: $10 per class or $75 for the 8-week series

    Registration required. Zoom details will be provided to all registrants.

    Past First Friday Experiences:

    February 5, 2021: “We Need to Talk About an Injustice” TED Talk By Bryan Stevenson

    Bryan Stevenson, author of the book, Just Mercy, shares some hard truths about America’s justice system, starting with a massive imbalance along racial lines: a third of the country’s black male population has been incarcerated at some point in their lives.

    His book, Just Mercy, is an unforgettable account of an idealistic, gifted young lawyer’s coming of age, a moving window into the lives of those he has defended, and an inspiring argument for compassion in the pursuit of true justice. Also the movie, Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption, is available on HBO Max.


    Friday, March 5, 2021: “The Great Migration and the power of a single decision” TED Talk By Isabel Wilkerson

    Sometimes, a single decision can change the course of history. Join journalist and author Isabel Wilkerson as she tells the story of the Great Migration, the outpouring of six million African Americans from the Jim Crow South to cities in the North and West between World War I and the 1970s. This was the first time in American history that the lowest caste people signaled they had options and were willing to take them.

    “These people, by their actions, were able to do what the powers that be, North and South, could not or would not do,” explains Wilkerson. “They freed themselves.”
