Greetings Jeremy and a very warm welcome to the online depth psychology community. It's great to see you here! This is an exciting time for the Depth Psychology Alliance, as we are expanding and adding many features to this forum.
As you may know, we now are made up of over 4,000 members from all over the world. I hope that as you have explored the community you have noticed what a dynamic group of like-minded people are here, all who are deeply drawn by the field of depth psychology. While there are many Jungian analysts and clinical psychologists here, our members come from all 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.
Bravo for already settling in and personalizing your profile image.
