Please share a little about yourself by way of introduction. What draws you to Depth Psychology and what are you looking for from this community?
Jungian psychology has been an interest since graduate school. The intersection of psyche,spiriit, and art is strong in my life. I want to gain connections with others of like mind and perhaps a regional (Southern)
physical meeting at some point. It is isolating out here with so few people who share these interests.I have been a therapist and professor in the psychology/counseling field for over 25 years but have become less and less connected inwardly to the whole field which seems relatively soulless.
Do you belong to any other online Psychology-related communities or orgs? If so, which?
Hi Emmi. It was a pleasure to meet you at the MTW Conference. I look forward to exploring this web community and glad to see you have joined.
Hi Emmi. I would like to add my welcome to Ed's--Did you two connect at the recent Journey conference? As you clearly know, the Alliance is a dynamic and growing group of people who understand the power of connecting around critical topics and the fact that we are a global community allows us to meet and learn from others in a multitude of ways.
I hope you'll find much to engage with as you begin to browse the vast content and interact with others. I see you've already jumped in and joined some groups. I hope you'll also share a little of yourself by posting a link or article that has meaning for you or perhaps by commenting on others' posts, asking a question, or sharing some of your own thoughts or work.
Looks like you're off to a good start, but in case you need posting a personalized photo icon or navigating the site, please use the following link--http://www.depthpsychologyalliance.com/page/navigating-the-site --and please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions at all! I look forward to seeing you around the community~Bonnie Bright, Founder
Very glad to see you have joined the Alliance. Please feel free to join the Jung in the South group as well, esp. since you are there is spirit already! :) As to your comment about a soulless state of psychology, I agree. The field has been taken over by cognitive-behaviorism and pharmaceuticals. Not much room for soul there. Seemed there was a mild anti-psychiatry mood within the Journey Conference as well (or I'm just hearing what I want to hear.) Again, glad you joined the Alliance. A meeting in Nashville is in its early stages.
