A while back I had the opportunity to appear on an episode of This Jungian Life. I definitely recommend this podcast. They explore so many different topics from multiple angles and the three analysts who host it do an excellent job. To all those…

  • You're welcome Bret. I really like your statement...."I am drawn to Depth Psychology as a way of understanding self and others, a form of healing, a mediation of numinous experiences, and a way of addressing the insanity of the world." and as a Bay Area refugee (not that Boulder is all that bad) and Pacifican, I sense a kindred spirit and offer appreciation of this. Aho Bret.

  • Greetings Bret and a very warm welcome to the online depth psychology community. It's great to see you here! This is an exciting time for the Depth Psychology Alliance, as we are expanding and adding many features to this forum.

    It looks like we share roots and branches in the Bay Area and as fellow Pacificans. 

    As you may know, we now are made up of over 4,000 members from all over the world. I hope that as you have explored the community you have noticed what a dynamic group of like-minded people are here, all who are deeply drawn by the field of depth psychology. While there are many Jungian analysts and clinical psychologists here, our members come from many walks of life--artists, writers, doctors, healing professionals, counselors, students, business people, etc--so there is much cross-disciplinary knowledge and experience here to be shared.
