Your thoughts, memories and the imagery. This "auric" field in which the figure is encased is the same one that is referred to as the "soul" in many texts. It is always depicted as an oval egg shape in all traditions as I…"

  • A belated greeting John and welcome to the online depth psychology community. It's great you've found us!

    
As you may know, we currently have over 3000 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 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.

    Your photos included look great; in addition, we recommend you personalize your profile photo by going to your "My page" and rolling your cursor over the default C.G. 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. Please feel free to post a topic for discussion in the forum, respond to another member's post, or share a link to an article or web site you like.

    There are a number of activities at the alliance. Please check out our vast video archive on a variety of topics and find events or post your own if you have one. You can also weigh in on the weekly depth discussions by clicking the image and quote at the top of the home page. Above all, get involved. Ask questions, post responses, and contact us if you want to offer a teleseminar or webinar for the community.

I look forward to seeing you around the community...Donna May, Board Member
