"Sacred Contracts: The Journey expands on the insights contained in the book and introduces whole new levels of awareness. Anyone who has read "Sacred Contracts will certainly want to experience Caroline's new insights firsthand. Those who may be unfamiliar with her book will be amazed to find its essence contained within the structure of this game. We are each born with a Sacred Contract, an agreement to learn certain lessons and develop wisdom in this lifetime. Among our allies in the pursuit of wisdom is a set of 12 archetypes drawn from the inexhaustible well of the collective unconscious. Recognizing those archetypes within our psyche helps us learn how to benefit from their energies. We all share four survival-oriented archetypes: the Child, Victim, Prostitute, and Saboteur. Part of the challenge and excitement of working with your archetypal patterns consists in discovering how to select the other eight archetypes that make up your inner support team of 12, and learning more about how their energies help or hinder you. Those 12 archetypes, when placed on the Archetypal Wheel through an intuitive process, make up your Chart of Origin, a diagram of key forces at work throughout your entire life. Although they are your primary archetypal patterns, however, they are not the only ones that influence you. There are countless archetypes in the collective unconscious, most of which come into play only in specific situations. Discoveringthe identity and function of the secondary archetypes in relation to your psyche is the goal of "Sacred Contracts: The Journey. It is an interactive experience that can be played alone or by up to four players, and can add new layers of insight to that provided by your Chart of Origin. These levels represent a heightened understanding of archetypes that Caroline has developed since she wrote "Sacred Contracts.
