This fascinating discussion with Toni Gilbert, author of Gaining Archetypal Vision, reveals how an understanding of archetypes can aid personal growth and healing. What are archetypes? How do we experience them and how can we work with them? Tarot cards are one of Toni’s main tools for exploring archetypal energies with clients, so the discussion often comes back to how the images on cards are triggers for ‘aha’ moments that lead to enlightenment and an understanding of how to move forward with an issue.
With the interview, which runs for 54 minutes, you also receive a copy of the Foreword and Chapter One of Gaining Archetypal Vision. This short slide show provides an overview of what you can expect in the interview and in the book.
“Toni Gilbert’s Gaining Archetypal Vision is a very accessible exploration of the archetypes. Based on Carl Jung’s original treatise and other rigorous archetypal research, this book assists us to better understand self and others and how to engage in self-renewal and self-discovery. Recognizing our archetypes is a way to open to a new level of clarity and understanding about how to live life from our soul’s purpose.” Barbara Dossey, PhD, RN, AHN-BC, FAAN, Author of Holistic Nursing: Handbook for practice. International Co-Director, Nightingale Initiative for Global Health
“Gaining Archetypal Vision by Toni Gilbert is a daringly personal and heartfelt look at how an archetypal approach to life can transform and deepen it. Gilbert’s own story and those of others show how to use the authenticity and integrity that results from an archetypal vision as a guide to one’s life path. Furthermore, she offers tools for achieving these and exercises for exploring the archetypes. This is a practical manual as well as a book of inspirational examples of the process.” Mary K. Greer, author of Tarot for Your Self and 21 Ways to Read a Tarot Card
