A Ballerina Archetype

Updated: Apr 22

Anatomy of An Archetype -- Start with a poem about one ballerina...

Rewrite parts of the poem. Changing the words changes the shape and size of the ballerina, the little girl.

What to notice about this image:

The child image

A crown symbolizing divinity

Unity, One and Many




Merging, Integration, and Wholeness


The words of the poem are little girlish, powdery and playful, naive. One of the ways an archetype teaches is by bringing an opposite into view. In this case, it is awareness of "over-feminine" paradigms, and ways of identifying with the color pink.
