The path toward individuation




Individuation is a mysterious, alchemical process.  Alchemy is the process whereby different elements come together and in their ensuing interaction each is changed.  This can be exciting, perplexing and even frightening but ultimately it is what life is.

We are each singular, but our lives are shaped by virtue of our relationships, our responses to them and the choices we make. When we make choices we bring to bear consequences in our lives.   

Using the story of Parzival you will begin to explore the alchemy of your life;  your individual destiny and also your relationship with others.


The archetypes in the story are powerful and live in all of us in numinous ways. This means that throughout there is the over-arching presence of the spiritual, the divine world and the order of destiny that resides here. 

So the story has 3 layers: individual, relational/society and connected to humankind as a whole.


The course will include the following:

  1. Biographical work in which you see your life as a path toward initiation/individuation 

  2. Connecting to the spirit of the story and your life via the use of active imagination and archetypes

  3. Observing and connecting with important relationships in your life

  4. Using the story as a guide for your own exploration
