Allow me to introduce myself. I’m Kiersten Marek, the author of Know Thyself:  a Kid’s Guide to the Archetypes. I am a practicing child and family therapist and the mother of two daughters.

On this website, you can learn about the 12 different aspects of identity that are discussed in my book.  I also provide some suggestions for how to explore each of your archetypes.  Let’s start with The Innocent.


Cooking for Emotional Wellness — New Book Due out Fall of 2013!

Announcement:  I am working on a new book project, due out in Fall 2013 — Cooking for Emotional Wellness — an exploration of how mythic figures can inform your cooking! Think archetypes and what the archetypes like to eat. For example: the Destroyer — big fat juicy steak and milkshake? Or are you more the whole bag of Peanut M&M’s type? Stay tuned for future announcements, as I am seeing this as a collaborative work open to submission for recipes and an accompanying emotional wellness story.
