"As a sailboat is guided by the unseen forces of the wind and the currents, so too is individual life influenced and often directed by the workings of unseen archetypes. To navigate, the sailor learns the ways of the water, the tides, and the winds, and so too, must they be adept at reading the patterns emerging in the sea to anticipate the best routes for future travel. So in life, we need to learn about these essential landmarks of the journey, and the symbols and initiatives conveying the nature of the archetypes guiding our life."
Dr. Michael Conforti, Founder and Director
NEW Certificate Program!
Assisi Institute Certification Programs
Archetypal Pattern Analyst Certification
The interior world of the psyche and its wisdom is manifested through the patterns it creates, and an awareness of these archetypal patterns can help to enrich our personal and professional lives.
Central to this work is our Archetypal Pattern Analyst Training Program, which presents an in-depth understanding of the workings of archetypes and the self-organizing tendencies inherent within the human psyche. What sets this program apart is the creative and intellectual range of its faculty and students.
Patterns of Trauma and Resilience Certificate Training
Our current global climate of terrorist atrocities being broadcast on social media, may be a meaningful and opportune moment to arrive at a new understanding of healing, one that encompasses the ability to live with the tragedies of life, and to build a psyche strong enough to carry what we have seen, felt and lived through.
While each person’s journey through this valley of the shadow is uniquely their own, there are archetypal responses to these tragedies which can either keep us imprisoned in the trauma or which can help us move forward to a meaningful life. Identifying and understanding these archetypal patterns can help each of us in moving towards a generative re-emergence into the world. To do this is truly an experience of a secular miracle.
