  • Hi Gary. Greetings, and glad you've found the online depth community. There is really no better way to learn than by experience--and your history with both Jungian analysis and being in the field of addiction treatment is a powerful combination. I hope you will go forward with your exploration of the two together--and let us know here in the community how that unfolds. In fact, this could be a wonderful forum to help flesh out ideas or try out some writing here or there.
    Other ways you can engage are by sharing a link, article, or web site that has been meaningful to you in your work--or to comment on someone else's post in order to get into a discussion. These are just some ideas to get you started. I will also send you some additional tips on navigating the site in a separate message. Again, welcome to the community. Regards~Bonnie Bright, Founder
