Greetings Kristen and a very warm welcome to the online depth psychology community. It's great you've found us! I would not be so closely linked today to depth psychology and the work of Jung and the archetypes if it were not for my travels and questing with Animas Valley. Great to see you here Kristen, please let me know if I can offer any particular guidance or assistance. Now on with the introductions...
As you may know, we now have 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 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.
