  • Hi Ed,

    Sorry it took a bit to find this & say thanks so much for the invite! Looking forward to being around the pages more. Thanks for your interest in my work. My thesis looked at nightmares using the lens of Self psychology & Jungian dreamwork to tend the shadow, & the daimon & projections associated with them. I am now teaching archetypal tarot classes & throwing around the idea of writing a book on intuitive tarot. Anyway, hoping for some enlightening dialogue here...& happy to be part of this community & group! 

  • Hi Ed,

     

    Thanks for your welcome. I'm not sure if you got my response so I'm sending it again.

    I am looking forward to reading everyone's comments and am glad to have found a virtual community for us depth-psycho's!  My dissertation has to do with imagery and the end-of-life (body) experience since I am a hospice social worker in Santa Barbara and work with many patients and families with life-threatening illness and old age.  What's yours about???

  • Hi Ed,

    Thank you for your welcoming note and your interest in my work. As of horses and depth psychology, I will elaborate on it later, I am at the moment packing to spend a week of vacation in the Glacier national park in Kalispell, MT. It became my priority those last few days!! My thesis topic is on sizygy and the divine couple in the work of Henry Corbin on the "perfect Nature", Kundalini Yoga and jung's Mysterium.

    But for now, off to the glaciers we go.

  • Thank you, Ed. The tragedy is that as the culture devolves and begins to spiral precipitously out of control, the road back contains few signposts for even decent people to be able to follow. It's interesting to me that Jung's Modern Man in Search of a Soul was written so long ago and presages our current plight!


  • The next ARC issue journal theme will be (more or less)
    on the topic "Imaginal Reality" or "The Reality of the
    Imaginal". The lead piece (written by me) will draw on Henri Corbin's
    account of Ibn 'Arabi, William Chittick's Imaginal Worlds, Gaston Bachelard,
    Robert Romanyshyn, the apophatic tradition, Vivian Dharrock-Lozowski's The
    uncoded world: A poetic semiosis of the wandered, Jorge Ferrer's & Jacob
    Sherman's the participatory turn. We want to do this in part because of the
    ongoing regulation of psychotherapy process in Ontario in which the tendency to
    privilege the rational-empirical mode of knowing over all else is prominent.



     



    I will ask Robert Romanyshyn and Vivian Dharrock-Lozowski
    if they might contribute something.



     



    You, and others, are welcome to offer a contribution on
    this topic for the journal - or in other parts of the ARC. ARC Arts will
    probably feature Susanna Hood and her dance works with video. The magazine will
    be eclectic based on what's around.

  • Deconstructing the Myth of the Feminine: Crossing the Threshold from a Monistic Past to a Pluralistic Future. That's a working title; I am sure some of it will change as I move forward!
  • Hi Ed,

    Thanks for the welcome comment (a month ago! ;-/) I received my MA in Mythological Studies with an Emphasis in Depth Psychology and am currently a Ph.D. candidate in the same, working on the dissertation! Look forward to being part of this community!

  • Hi Ed,

    Thanks for your message, though I'm unclear what you mean about the interface between MFT systemics and depth psychological inner systems.

  • Hi Ed,

    Thanks for the welcome!  I look forward to sharing what emerges for me on this dissertation path as it engages the intersections between the sacred feminine, the indigenous knowledge system and the end of life. 

    I am in the throes of completing a stack of papers for the end of the quarter and when I "come up for air" I look forward to starting group around my interests.

    ~~"see you there" :D

  • Thank you for your welcome Ed. The blog is a work in progress, and I am also looking forward to reading around on the site and sharing with the members. This alliance looks like a great group. Being based in Japan, it is not everyday that I have a chance to interact with fellow Jung enthusiasts, so this group is a good fit for me. I hope I can contribute on some level.
