Exploring Type Development and Shadow – Mercy Centre, USA

I feel so lucky to have been invited to join this very select group of Type enthusiasts and Type experts from the USA and Canada.  Last year the group crossed the pond to have an amazing few days in Glastonbury exploring the archetypes and symbolism in the legend of the Grail with Angelo Spoto.

This year we were at the Mercy Retreat centre just north of New York.  After a few days in New York, we had 4 days at the centre which was in a beautiful setting by the sea.  The days were facilitated by Roger Pearman, Katherine Hirsh and Danielle Poirier and we took deep dives into experiential explorations of our unconscious sides. We were also tasked with presenting our developmental journey through Type – there are some very creative people out there – sadly I was not one of them and presented mine on Powerpoit – but I learned a lot about creativity from the others.

Additional to the learning, we were treated to the rare sight of a Harvest Moon rising over the sea to our left while the most amazing sunset was taking place to our right.





Overall a fantasitc experience and great to spend some time with such wonderful and knowledgeable people.
