Hi, Everybody –
It’s time for another archetype video, and I’m doing the hermit this week. The hermit is one of my favorite archetypes. It needs to be modernized because people associate the hermit with a reputation from centuries ago that is no longer adequate for what the hermit represents in the contemporary psyche.
The hermit is associated with the need to seek solitude. Even among the monastics, hermits would seek out space to be within themselves for spiritual reasons or personal reasons of creativity.
Because we live now in a world that directs us inward, to think about our choices and realize that our choices are power, we are going to find that each of us needs to create a hermitage in some way in our life.
I could do a wonderful workshop on entering your hermitage and living life in the hermitage. It’s a really rich thought, isn’t it?
That’s all for today, though. Thank you.
P.S. It’s not too late to join my new Reflections class “Conversations with Our Archetypes”
