This workshop is focused on understanding the function couplings within the psychological types described by Jung and Myers. Bob will outline how John Giannini posits one moves through these couplings as one ages and the role each plays in the life journey.

Participants will:

  1. Recognize the sequential nature of the journey through the couplings and why that journey is sequential.
  2. Recognize the importance that completing the journey has on one’s self esteem and interpersonal relationships.

The program details a life development model that encompasses one moving through each of the functions identified by Jung, and it explains why completing this journey is essential to a successful life. Compass of the Soul by John Giannini is recommended reading.


$6 for eChapter members (discount code to be emailed to members), $25 for guests.
