Calling those who live east of the Mississippi and south of the Mason-Dixon. I love California, Chicago, New York and New England, but need to connect with others in the South who are interested in exploring Jungian/Archetypal theories and practice.

  • Hello I am planning to see JS Bolen - I'll be sure to wear a nametag - and I'm looking into the Journey Conference in October. Thanks for alerting me to this event!
  • Hi - I wanted to let all of you know about a Jungian conference to be held in October in North Carolina.  This will be the fourth or fifth year for this annual conferences, which grew out of the former Journey Into Wholeness community.  For more information, please go to the website   The price for the Thursday - Sunday conference is very reasonable.  I will be there, doing a workshop on the Pearson-Marr archetypes, as well as a pre-conference workshop on the Myers-Briggs psychological types.
  • Hi Ed, I could do Bolen, so if even three decided to come that would be great. Anyone else?? Busy time for me now, as I teach at the university and it is the end of term and grades are due. But slowing down by next week. It looks to me like things have slowed down on the Depth Psychology Alliance in general. Curious.

    Idea? I could do Bolen. I am going to Chicago Jung Institute at the end of June if anyone else is going there, we could meet. Looks like a great program on active imagination. I'm doing 5 days, but a single day is possible. I saw some energy for the Hayden Dream conference in North Carolina, but I won't be going to that. Not sure. Any other thoughts from anyone?


  • There was not much response to the idea of meeting for the Bolen presentation. After taking a deep breath and seeing that opportunities were being offered outside the group that seemed to answer the needs of the group, I took another deep breath and turned my energies to other pursuits, waiting to see if anyone noticed the lack of action within the group. It could be that my desire to meet in the flesh is a result of my age and not reflective of modern day community building processes. I am actually puzzled and not sure from where to push off. Ideas?
  • Hi All, I haven't heard anything lately, and wondering if I'm missing out! Was there any energy about meeting in Atlanta for Jean Shinoda Bolen? Anything happening?


  • Hillary,

    You are bdoing what I hoped would begin to happen across the South. Every group (such as Friends of Jung-types - not institutes) that I have heard closed was "professionally led." Each story seems similar that they devolved into something dry and esoteric. Hard to imagine that Jung wanted to turn his thoughts over to a new intelligencia responsible for deciding the "purity" of theory and practice. Three cheers to your group, and to the courage of the facilitators for moving forward.


  • Hello,

    In light of the new online Red Book discussion group, I thought I would share what we are doing here in Orlando.  A group of us have started a monthly study group.  We each take turns hosting and organizing the meeting in one of our homes.  Since the group is not officially "led" we donate the money that we would otherwise spend on a professionally led seminar to The Philemon Foundation each month.  The group began in January and thus far it has been insightful and engaging.  There has been so much interest we have had to officially close the group because we now have 16 members! 

    I would highly encourage everyone to start a similar group in your area.  It took a little while to generate the interest we have currently, however after we met a few times and word of mouth started about the positive experience, there was a big increase in new members.  I would be happy to provide more information about how we set up and organize the study group if anyone is interested.  Hillary

  • Please see Tamara's offering of a Red Book discussion presented to the whole of the DPA. As Bonnie states, she is a powerful teacher/facilitator and I am sure much will be gained by sharing in that group. Happy reading!!  :)
  • Red Book -- yes!
  • Would love a Red Book discussion. Went to the LOC this summer when it was there and saw the original... very moving.

Jung and the Arts

This will be the focus of the first Jung in the South Conference and except for a few folks I know who would like to present, this is as far as it has gotten. I would like to make this planning a group endeavor. Is anyone connected with a college or university or art institute (housing and board made easier) that might be interested in hosting the event? I imagine during the summer if an academic setting.  If you do plan to check with organizations in your area, please let me know so I don't…

Suggestions on Readings for a Directed Study Proposal.

Since my graduate program doesn't offer any Jungian courses regularly, I'm getting ready to draft a proposal for an independent study course that focuses specifically on Jung.  There's a couple of faculty members that have an interest in Jung that may agree to be the overseer and mentor for me on this.  I figured if I came up with a proposed course of study that it would only help my chances of getting one to agree, but I'm having a very hard time narrowing down what the proposed readings for…
