The Teacher Archetype

Teacher . Instructor . Educator . Mentor

Light:

Ability to communicate knowledge, experience, skill or wisdom.

Shadow:

Manipulating or abusing students.

Teaching negative traits and destructive skills.

Teaching is the art of communicating knowledge, experience, skill, and wisdom to another.

Teaching, or offering instruction of any kind, can manifest through parental guidance, business apprenticeship, or by inspired instruction in ethics or kindness.

The Shadow Aspect

The shadow Teacher manifests as a desire to manipulate or abuse those you are instructing; to be more concerned with recognition than with imparting knowledge; or, like the shadow Mentor, to teach negative traits and destructive skills, like burglary or how to cheat on the job.

Evaluation

To determine whether this archetype is part of your support team, ask yourself if others look to you as a teacher in any situation. Are you the one that others seek out for the richness of your experience, or to teach them the ropes?

Movies with Teacher Archetypes

Watching movies related to one of your core archetypes, especially when going through the process of healing your shadow aspect is a powerful tool to help you understand yourself (your motivations, your passions, your fears – why you behave the way you do).
