“My recognition of the need to look at shadow starts with a painfulness, a stoppage, an absence of the sense of well-being, and an agitation from within to feel okay again.” -- John Beebe, Integrity in Depth

Program Description.

By demonstrating how their own opposing functions influence their writing the presenters will help attendees to:

  • Understand Jung’s concepts of individuation and archetypal forces
  • Design their individual Type dynamics chart and use it in writing exercises
  • Bring less conscious functions into the light so that these functions become angels (messengers) rather than demons (fears)
  • Identify which functions come naturally in their writing and which are more difficult
  • Explore how the shadow functions can help further the individuation process
  • Improve their writing style by working with the opposing functions

Ann and Walter are presenting this workshop at the APT International Conference in Dallas, TX in August, 2009. This is an opportunity for you to preview this workshops and help the presenters refine their presentation.

The Mysterious 8th Function – the part of ourselves we’ve never fully explored

3-part webinar presented by Type Resources.

May 21 & 28, June 4 (Thursdays)

from 1:30 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.

You know your preferred functions – your dominant, auxiliary, tertiary and inferior . . . but what about your deepest, least-conscious mental process?  Learn how your 8th function can be a source of great creativity in this interactive webinar from ArcheTypeResources, a subsidiary of Type Resources, Inc.  No prior experience or knowledge of the eight-function model is necessary.

Cost:  $134  for APT chapter members (10% discount)

  • Must register by Friday, May 15, to receive discount (coupon code for discount: 10RTP8th)
  • Cost for non-members: $149
  • Register at Type Resources

Where is the webinar? At your computer (log-on instructions to be sent at registration).

What if I can’t make all 3 sessions? No problem – you will have access to the recording and online material so you can make up a missed session at your convenience.

Which function is my 8th? Switch the attitude of your 4th or inferior function to determine your 8th function.  Example: ENFP – 4th function = Introverted Sensing (Si); 8th function = Extraverted Sensing (Se)

Facilitators: Bob McAlpine, Carol Shumate (APT-RTP Board), Amy Evers
