  • Hi Jean! Greetings and welcome to the online depth psychology community.  I’m glad you’ve joined us. 

    As you may know, we currently have over 2,600 members from all over the world. I hope as you explore the community a bit you find a dynamic group of like-minded people 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.

    We recommend that to get started, you personalize your profile photo by going to “My Page” and rolling your cursor over the default CG Jung image. That will give you the option to switch it out. As well, 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 website you like.
