ARCHETYPES and SYMBOLS in the SOUL & PNEUMA BREATHWORK

“The emergence of archetypes has a distinctly numinous, spiritual character. It can heal or destroy, but it is never indifferent. It is not uncommon for the archetype to appear in the form of a spirit in dreams or in the creations of fantasy, or to behave like an apparition.” – Carl Gustav Jung

The course invites you to embark on a fascinating and PROFOUND JOURNEY to EXPLORE UNIVERSAL SYMBOLS, as well as the basic CODES that are part of the COLLECTIVE UNCONSCIOUS of the human psyche.

The theory of archetypes, as part of the collective unconscious, was developed by the pioneer of transpersonal psychology, Carl Gustav Jung, although it has its roots in the philosophical systems of the oldest traditions.

According to C. G. Jung’s research, archetypes are the building blocks of our psyche, and the experience and interpretation of them will shape our perception of the world, our values, and even our interpersonal relationships.

By studying and experiencing the POWER OF SYMBOLS AND ARCHETYPES, we receive KEYS that open access to a NEW UNDERSTANDING OF OURSELVES, our inner psychological processes, and the universe in general.

Pneuma Institute, as a school of transpersonal psychology, not only studies the functioning of the psyche (mind, emotion, behavior), but also very clearly includes the spiritual element by synthesizing the main traditions; it also includes methods that allow penetrating into the space of the unconscious and discovering all its depth in an experiential way with meditative practices and expanded states of consciousness through Pneuma Breathwork, so this course will exceptionally combine theory and practice with the masterful guidance of Juan Ruiz Naupari, founder of the institute.

HOW CAN KNOWLEDGE OF ARCHETYPES AND SYMBOLS BE USEFUL FOR YOUR LIFE?

– Thanks to the training, you will learn to understand and speak the symbolic language of the soul, which is universal across all cultures and historical periods. The symbolic language is used not only in psychotherapy and art but also in the business sphere, for example, when creating a brand archetype.

– The course “Archetypes and Symbols of the Soul” will allow you to perceive the situations in your life more broadly and completely, not as something separate, but as part of an integrated field of human experience. As you become familiar with the archetypes, you will begin to recognize universal stories and motifs reflected in individual circumstances.

– An archetype is a peculiar “framework” of a personality. By knowing your unconscious mental tendencies, you will not only be able to heal psychologically but also consciously develop the virtuous aspects of your personality, as well as transform negative manifestations.

– Based on your knowledge of archetypes, you will learn to release psychic energy from events that may have previously been perceived as traumatic.

– Each archetype and symbol has its own special meaning, with whose wisdom you can discover your hidden potential, which is ready to unfold.

– Understanding the mental structures of the collective unconscious will give you the opportunity to better understand the people around you, their motives, and their behavior.

– Archetypes are unconscious. But they are what compel people to perceive, experience events, and react to them in a certain way. Knowledge of archetypes will help a person to be more conscious and, as a result, more free in their reactions.

Archetypes are a mirror that reflects the inner world of a person. As universal and timeless codes, they help us understand who we are and show us the way forward. The study of archetypes is not just an academic exercise, but a journey into the depths of our soul.

During these practical sessions, not only will you be able to delve into your subconscious, but you will also have the opportunity to directly experience the essence of the “original” images and ideas that indirectly govern a person’s cognitive and emotional life, their decisions, and their worldview. The study and firsthand experience with archetypes and symbols provide participants with the opportunity to reconnect and integrate the three dimensions of the human being: body, soul, and spirit.

The course is offered by prof. Juan Ruiz Naupari.

“As we become aware of the existence of Real Life, which is in eternity and connected with our Inner Being, we gradually change our perception of ordinary life. People have drawn a border between the material and spiritual worlds, and the spiritual is often perceived as something separate, external, belonging to the world of religion. But the sacred can be lived every day at home, at work, in relationships with others, and in the depths of the heart. To make the realm of the sacred part of our lives, we need knowledge of symbols and archetypes.”

– Juan Ruiz Naupari

Don’t miss the opportunity to immerse yourself in the fascinating world of hidden meanings and discover new dimensions of your being!
