An archetype is the first type, the image of something on which all others are moulded. In the Tanakh (Bible), we have a repository of the most powerful and relatable archetypes in our lives, from Adam to Rachel, Devorah to David.
Archetypes are also, according to Carl Jung, patterns of thought that seep from the past experience of the entire human race into our present minds – what is known today as “the collective unconscious”.
Join Gabriela Mendelsohn, art therapist, and Ilana Stein of the Academy on a journey both experiential and intellectual as we explore the role of archetypes in our Torah and our own lives through the lens of art therapy.
Art therapy, among other functions, encapsulates images, image making and imagination to draw out the unconscious and ultimately bring about emotional regulation, self- reflection, and personal growth. This is an opportunity to break boundaries, tap into your inner creativity and gain insight into images both universal and Jewish, and how they relate to our own lives.
