If you are signing up as an Individual Member, do you have a degree in Depth Psychology?
Other type of Psychology, No
If so, from what institution?
I have a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, NC. However, I was more focused upon Social Psychology at the time, as it also aligned more with the curricular opportunities.
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?
I have a B.A. in Psychology but did not attend a University with an active Depth Psychology program. In college I began to be interested in mythic studies and astrology, and I have continued to explore astrology and archetypal psychology in my free time. I am an Instructor and Advisor at Tacoma Community College and work primarily with students who have dropped out of high school and are seeking a high school diploma through our community college. I also have facilitated digital storytelling with mental health consumers. I am interested in learning more about Depth Psychology in order to become a better person, a more effective and healing teacher, and a more healing and powerful astrologer.
Do you belong to any other online Psychology-related communities or orgs? If so, which?

School of Evolutionary Astrology
What is your WEB SITE (IF you would like to promote it)?
Gray, I placed a comment on the Jupiter/Saturn piece around Hillman's reimagining growth.
Gray, Thank you for the request, how did you come by my name?
I noticed your note on the forum for the Red Book course. Just contact me to see if we can work on a scholarship for you. firstname.lastname@example.org
Hello Gray. I'd like to add my somewhat belated welcome to the Alliance.
I hope as you explore the community a bit you are finding a dynamic group of likeminded people who are all 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.
On that note, there are many opportunities to engage as you browse the site. When you're ready to jump in, please feel free to post a topic for discussion in the forum, respond to someone else's post, or share a link to an article or web site you like. You can also post a few paragraphs of your own blog in the Blogs section and put a link so people can go to your site and read the rest. I see you've already jumped in there, so that's great!
Also, you may want to consider joining the online book club if you haven't already—There's a new author each month, and you can jump in at anytime and participate at whatever level you wish. In May there's also a special study group on the Role of Dreams i Psycho-Spiritual Crisis you may want to check out.
Meanwhile, you seem to be managing fine, but in case you need detailed help navigating the site, you can 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
