The symbol of the ‘divine’ child is very powerful when appearing in dreams, visions or active imagination. But in common with all archetypes it has a duality – a shadow side – which can manifest in all of us, individually and collectively. This complex has the potential for great creativity but can also be very destructive and demonstrates how the spirit of the times is at odds with the spirit of the depths. In her talk ffiona will explore this dichotomy – the childlike and childishness – and consider how to heal the split.

limited to 15 participants
In this workshop participants will have the opportunity to further explore the numinosity of the child archetype with its power and shadow and share your memories, dreams and reflections of childhood. You will also have the opportunity of making your own “inner child” hand puppet. All materials will be provided, but please bring scissors, a favourite piece of material and two photographs of yourself as a child, with or without mother and family.

Ffiona von Westhoven Perigrinor trained at the CG Jung Institute in Zurich and is a senior member of GAP and IGAP. She has a private practice in West Oxfordshire, lectures widely in England and has been visiting China as an analyst since 2007. She is particularly interested in bringing insights from Eastern wisdom together with Jung’s understanding of the psyche. She is also a medievalist with a special interest in pilgrimage. (
