What would it be like to set your imagination free? Imagine the endless possibilities, ideas and creations that could flow from you, igniting the world with the unique grace of your soul. This is the child archetype in the most potent form. Imagination is a faculty of your soul, but sadly enough, the imagination is all too often relegated to childhood. To believe that you can leave your imagination behind like some forgotten toy is an illusion. You are never not imagining. Your inner child is always with you, and so is your imagination. It is time to realize what you use you imagination for and grow up into the kind of play that lets your soul take flight.
In the next installment of Stacey’s “Archetypes In-Depth” series, you dive down the Rabbit Hole of your child archetype patterns. To embody the light of the child archetype is to make friends with paradox. Your rational mind forces you to choose between being a child and being an adult, but your imagination is able to hold both states at once – embodying the beginner’s mind with wisdom.
Not only does Stacey do a fantastic job of describing the patterns and paradox of the child archetype, but in this class you also benefit from her teaching about each of the individual expressions of the child. Stacey weaves stories that whisk you into vibrant worlds rich with symbolism and meaning. As you learn about the power of imagination, you practice imagining alongside her. “The Child: Freeing Your Imagination” class is a wellspring you’ll find you want to dive into over and over again. A rich resource for learning about the power of your own child archetype as well as the child within us all, this class is an essential reference for any student of archetypes, Sacred Contracts, and the imagination.
Often I am asked, “Where can I learn more about archetypes?” They are all around us. The challenge is learning how to recognize archetypal patterns. It is not about finding the one right book, but in seeing the patterns that underlie every story you read. My work is to point out and name the patterns that are right in front of us, while also clearing fundamental assumptions that get in the way. I can’t think of a more basic false assumption we hold as a culture than the idea that only children have good imaginations. Or, another false assumption, that we leave innocence behind.
In this over eight hour online class, I cover the paradoxes of the child archetype and how they are out of balance in the shadow. Your imagination makes it possible for you to reconcile these constant tensions and find freedom in the light of the child. From a broad overview of the child archetype, I then go in-depth into each of the expressions of the child archetype: wounded, orphan, eternal, magical, nature and divine. Through myth and fairytales it becomes easy to see the distinctions between each of these. Stories help you view the archetypes impersonally, which is the key to learning archetypal language.

And, after all, what else should we expect from this powerful conduit of the imagination?
