  • Location: "Online or on the phone—Times listed are PST"
  • Latest Activity: Jun 25, 2021

In addition to helping callers solve nuts and bolts issues around being or becoming employed, Dorene will give special attention to “getting from here to there”—the difficult transition from work that no longer excites us to that which is deeply inspiring. Some of the profound questions discussed on the calls to date:

  • How do we heed Psyche’s call, while also paying the bills?
  • How do we know when to be still and when to take action?
  • When is “not getting” the earmark of Psyche at work?
  • How can we make lemonade out of lemons . . . the Depth way?
  • How can we use Depth knowledge and methods in a job search?

These and countless other topics about finding well-chosen work are raised by callers and explored on each call in a supportive environment. Callers have consistently remarked on how much better they feel at the end of the call, whether just listening to others, or sharing their own specific challenges around jobs, work, career and calling. 

Drop in on Fridays at 10:00 a.m., or Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m. PT

  • Hi Lucille, so sorry about the confusion! The program was always set to end last week. Now that I have your email, I'll send you the concluding email I sent to the loyal few. You'll see that Darlene and Linda are trying to keep the conversation going, and I'm sure they'll love to have you!

    Hello Dorene. I tried to get through on Tuesday and the link did not

    go through. After 40 minutes I tried calling and that did not work.

    Just checking in to see if you are all right.


  • Education Institution

    Thank you Doreen. It was a privilege to receive your wisdom tonight. We have a lunar eclipse full moon upon us tomorrow which will be stationed in the astrologcal sign of Libra. Powerful energy for transmutation.

  • Thank you for all these wonderful thoughts, Linda. I am chewing on all of them! I discovered this weekend that, indeed, the webinar format for this program does not allow phone-ins to be heard--you can only listen. Boo! I hope to have the format change in time for the next Buzz that Bonnie puts out--it will advertise the hew link. Be looking for it.

    I love having you engaging in so many of the Alliance offers.


  • How interesting, Lucille, that it was your voice that went. What might the symbolism be in that symptom for you right now? Hope you're feeling better this evening. (I love Hillman!) Glad to have you join us anytime. Dorene

    I have not forgotten these calls. I was sick all week and finally lost my voice two days ago. I am suppose to speak at the Unitarian Universalist Sunday Service. The Worship Associate will have to read what I put together. I wrote about the Spring Equinox and "Light". I first shared about the darkness of the Wintertime. I used a Hillman quote,

    the wealth of wisdom about our past, present and future.

    “Could there be an archetypal aspect of the darkness that might account for our disdain, as well as the fear, the physiological shudder, it can release?” … a question posed by James Hillman. (Alchemical Psychology, p.85).  Hope to join again next week. Thanks, Doreen.

  • Good evening Doreen - good luck with trying to find, use a format that allows us “phone in only” folks with an opportunity to speak and be heard - I am still going to try that international number - maybe that makes a difference in the format you have?

    I do believe what you have to offer is so needed - honing in on finding the right job in relation to one’s calling…
    These are the words that come to heart for me:
    • thinking of active ways we can help and serve
    • one good deed at a time
    • souls who dare to transform the world
    • everyone is called on earth…to work towards something
    • what is and how do I find that something I have been called to do
    I like your word grouping - From Here to There: Bridging from Work to Calling
    From Here to There: Working Towards One’s Calling
    Heading the Call:  Transforming Yourself Within Your World of Work
    After all Doreen, a calling into the depths of anything is a lifetime quest, path...that calls us...seems to me...if we are in communion...
    Have a great weekend.  Your presence and voice of experience is so needed...and will bear fruit...somewhere...someday...Peace + Love Linda
  • Hi Linda,

    So glad you joined the call and it made sense to you! Unfortunately, I've learned that the fact that I'm doing this program in the Webinar format of Zoom, it doesn't allow phone callers to speak or be heard!!! Who knew. I am trying to arrange to change over to "large meeting" format, which allows for interaction (like on the Community Conversation calls). I'm also thinking of changing the title, since there hasn't been much interest in the nuts and bolts of a job search. What do you think of: "From Here to There: Bridging from Work to Calling?"

    Thanks so much for your support of all we do on the Alliance.

  • Good morning Doreen - it was me that called in on the 1-646-558-8656 number that announces I would be muted...and so I am thinking next Friday, I will call in on the international room conference number which is 1-647-558-0588...and here is hoping that option will allow for listening and speaking.

    I want to thank you for sharing this morning and I very much enjoyed listening to the content you presented.  Hopefully next Friday we will be interactive...Peace + Love Linda

  • Hi Doreen - I called in this morning and was able to listen, however, when I tried * 6 to "un-mute" - it did nothing.  This works with the call in phone people in the "reading circle" and perhaps there is a switch that you need to change so those of us on the phone can un-mute and we can all be part of a group discussion?

    Anyways, I want to participate every Friday morning and will call in to listen.  We also have this option of communicating here, so if we are unable to connect live, we could write our areas of work interest to you ahead of time and perhaps you could discuss them during the next live event the participant will be present for...

    Enjoyed listening this morning...thank you - nice sharing on transcendent function.  Peace + Love Linda
