“ . . . in most cases instinctive tendencies assert themselves for or against one’s subjective interests no matter whether an outside authority approves or not. The inner authority does not need to be consulted first, as it is present at the outset in the intensity of the tendencies struggling for decision.”
—C.G. Jung, Aion
Sociologists describe three types of authority: legal/rational, which is based on enacted rules and regulations such as in government or other established institutions; traditional, which is based on long established cultural patterns; and charismatic authority, which is based on a person’s ability that can inspire devotion and obedience. But in this workshop we will focus on the development of inner authority through which we can become and stand for who we truly are. We will use myths, fairy tales, dreams and personal experience to elaborate this idea.
