What is it?
Archetypal Pattern Analysis is a field of study and application developed by Michael Conforti Ph.D., Jungian Analyst. Over the last 29 years, Dr Conforti has held a collaborative field for professional domains as diverse as physics and the cinematic arts, psychotherapy to biology.
Year after year, Dr Conforti brought the foremost leaders of these different professions together in an arena for study that has created a current ‘meeting of the minds’ on how patterns function in the human psyche and in systems. This includes:
- the formation of patterns,
- how patterns manifest and unfold,
- what interventions really work to actually change patterns.
This is all based on the archetypal reality of underlying forces that shape and organize life and its mysteries. Similar to the wisdom of ancient traditions and of the New Sciences (Quantum, Chaos and Complexity Theory), C. G. Jung observed the existence of influences that far exceed our ordinary ego consciousness; an objective psyche which organizes life and its mysteries.
Through the lens the study of living systems in nature, we see the way systems establish themselves and the way they can be generatively changed. Archetypal Pattern Analysis works with the deep unconscious wisdom and archetypal fields of energy to create a container of alchemical change for any system.
Archetypal Pattern Analysis investigates what the psyche is attempting to express through the patterns that are manifesting, what archetypal fields these patterns favor, and how to archetypally impact the system, creating and mentoring new pathways into the system’s highest potential.

How I apply Archetypal Pattern Analysis
Because of the universality of archetypal wisdom, Archetypal Pattern Analysis is applied across multidisciplinary fields, including psychotherapy, cinema and the arts, bodywork, consultation in business, diplomacy, healthcare systems to name a few.
These are just some of the ways that I use Archetypal Pattern Analysis in working with people. If you have questions about how Archetypal Pattern Analysis would be used in your field of endeavor, please ask!
Psychotherapy: Archetypal Pattern Analysis moves people to a deep level of relationship to the deep Self. Archetypal Pattern Analysis doesn’t look at patterns in terms of disorders or diagnostic codes, but in terms of what your patterns are attempting to express as part of a coherent whole.
It immediately involves you in looking at the mystery of your own unconscious behavior and suggests new ways of aligning to be able to have the life you are wanting to have. A psychotherapist must question their own patterns and work their own shadow material to learn to apply this work.
Bodywork: The patterns that people embody are congruent in all systems of their life. How they hold themselves and walk, their body structure; its strengths and weaknesses will be congruent with the behavioral patterns they express in all areas of their life. Changing patterns in the body affects a person’s ability to change repetitive patterns in their relationship to self and others. As an Archetypal Pattern Analyst, I work with these patterns of feeling and holding in your body and energy system.
The Arts: Fine artists, choreographers, fiction writers all have used Archetypal Pattern Analysis to more deeply communicate their vision to their patrons. Â Learning the archetypal properties of an image are a foundational piece of Archetypal Pattern Analysis. I work with many artists and writers to deepen their work and bring their expression to its fullness.
Cinema and Storytelling: Many films now have an Archetypal Cinematic Consultant that helps the story achieve archetypal congruence. These are the movies that tend to live on in our memory and have success at the box office, as they embody universal truth.
Our own visions of our lives are based on archetypal motifs that we are trying to bring into manifestation. Archetypal Pattern Analysis focuses on helping you to drop your non generative alignments to your vision and bring it into fullness.
Health: We look at what the illnesses in your body are attempting to express archetypally. Expression in the physical body has started in the patterns you are working. As we work with the pattern of the illness, shifts occur through your whole system.
