These 80 archetype cards, with companion instruction booklet, draw on the ancient and universal patterns of behaviour known as archetypes. Each of these cards highlights both the light and shadow attributes of a different archetype. The deck also contains blank cards so that readers can experiment with their own archetypes. The instruction booklet, with its insights into human consciousness, explains how to determine which archetypes are active in our individual psyches. The overall intent is to help readers understand their lives. The deck can be used by itself or with Caroline Myss' book Sacred Contracts.
