"Well done Joel. As a brainspotting Jungian I have written about this also and feel strongly that BSP is a great way to offer active imagination to our clients."

"Interesting. Re-balancing? Before knowing anything of Swedenborg his name showed up in a dream of mine. Currently reading Lachman's Mystic Jung. Have you read his Swedenborg biography?"

"Now Wild 
My body vibrates,
when wind
of you,
blow across me;
Dragon
burning
fire,
passion.
 
Electricity flows
through me

off line
for awhile.
 
When did the moon
stop enchanting?
When did a touch

When did the wind…"

  • Thank you for the warm welcome Mark. I look forward to being a part of the community.

    Dear Mark, a belated 'thank you' for your warm welcome to the Depth Psychology Alliance.

    It is actually only now that I find your comment (seem to be an eternal novice at cyber-matters…). In this context, Mark, even though this is not the official channel, may I ask you a related question: Can I put on the Depth Psychology Alliance website articles of mine that have been published elsewhere? Thank you so much for taking the trouble...

    With best wishes for a fulfilling summer,

    warm regards,

    Sophia Reinders

    PS. We are 'linked' on LinkedIn.

  • Thanks Mark.

    I appreciate the warm welcome. I personalized my profile the day that I joined the group, and have been using my own profile pic for some time....not sure why you are still seeing a pic of Carl Jung :-) I thoroughly enjoyed the Jung, Alchemy, and Tree of Life 4 part seminar and have already browsed through many of the other posted articles and videos. I look forward to joining more of the activities!

  • Hi Mark,

    Thank you for the personalized welcome message. I'm happy to have stumbled across the Depth Psychology Alliance and am looking forward to exploring further. 

    I live in Stevensville, Montana, which (as you probably know) is right next to Florence, so just down the road from your old stomping grounds. 

    I would be interested in hearing about your experience at Pacifica. I'm considering the PhD in Depth Psychology with Jungian emphasis (but am concerned about the cost and practicality of the degree... I'm an INTJ...)

    I'm also considering pursuing an MDiv at Naropa (which appears to be close to where you currently are). 

    I'm working with Anita Doyle (also a Pacifica graduate) as a spiritual director trying to narrow down my options, and am interested in gathering as much information as possible. (Did I mention I'm an INTJ?!)

    Please let me know how it would be best to contact you to discuss this further. Thank you!

  • So this is where you've been hangin out!

  • Thank you Mark (Sippy)

    Yes, we all laughed when we first heard the name Sippy Downs and people commented that we were going to the land of Sip sip gin and tonic!!

    Actually the word Sippy is derived from an Australian aboriginal name for a big winged bird - there are lots of birds here including large golden tailed black cockatoos and their wing span is amazing. One flew down to our bird bath for a drink and it's regarded as the grandfather spirit. 
    We came here two years ago from five years of teaching in the counselling and psychology department in Shue Yan University in Hong Kong. Some of my colleagues also studied Jungian ideas and we had great conversations and sharings.

    I now am program leader and senior lecturer in the University of Sunshine Coast in the Master of Counselling and Bachelor of Counselling and my students love it when we begin to teach them ideas from Jung and from depth psychology.

    I'm looking forward to meeting others in this site and learning from you all - am still finding my way around the site.

    Warm regards

  • Hi Mark  Thank you for the warm welcome and information...much appreciated.  I haven't had time to fully peruse the site and take part in anything yet but hope to soon!  I am so pleased to have found Depth Psychology Alliance and SO grateful for the opportunity to learn from other folks and the resources offered. 

    Warmly,

    Laurice Mock

  • Hey Mark, thanks for welcome. I was a member at the start and last year or 2 just couldn't keep up-not much free time. Great to be back though!

    Can you direct me to who's taking care of site glitches? Tried to donate-put in all cc info-denied Pay Pal (they were hacked a few months ago) but couldn't make anything work. I had to click on " no donation " to get on this page.

  • We raised our son here and we stayed to continue hiking and backpacking in the rocky mountains. We are out on the edge of civilization ... and loving it!

  • Hi Mark, I just now saw your comment. Thank you for the warm welcome and I will take advantage of the resources here. I'm still trying to explore the site. I am interested in the jungplatform.com courses as well.

...Whether confronting, petitioning, courting, speaking more directly or wooing, the theme here when walking one step in front of the other into a quest for new consciousness, healing and wholeness, is that this is a relationship we are entering and engaging—and thus we proceed accordingly. So by all means introduce yourself!  Give thanks, inquire with patience, persistence, grace and humility. Perhaps with impatience?! Make a plea, offer a prayer, lament the distance you feel between…

Taking Action on Behalf of Soul


9142454884?profile=original "I believe that if I can sit out there long enough those crows, the trees and the wind can teach me something about how to be a better human being. I don't call that romanticism, I call that Indigenous Realism." --Dr Daniel Wildcat 

Yes, when we quest we sit out there…we also walk, wander, and explore out there. Nothing fancy. Mostly old school ways: a few pleas, some simple…

Risk Meeting Your Soul...Risk Living Your Life


Risk meeting your Soul: risk living your life!
(Clinical and poetic inspiration for all of us)

"It is my clinical experience that most of us do not have abiding permission to fully claim our own lives. Sadly, this means that we are often living in a fragmented, partial way. Our soul---that is, our psyche---knows this of course, grieves, and presents us with those many protests we call symptoms." What Matters Most, James Hollis

“My so-called personality is a persona through which soul speaks.”  (Hillman in Re-Visioning Psychology)

James Hillman used to remind us that if you don’t think you’re talking to yourself--that there isn’t a constant stream of chatter in your mind and body (dreams of course carrying the largest cast of characters and their chatter, shouts, murmurs, and demands) --you’re kidding yourself. And part of his message regarding this…

Ritual: Making It Physical


9142451284?profile=original

It is often a great relief in the midst of our busy lives to create some ceremony and space for the larger and sometimes unseen questions we otherwise ignore, forget or stuff down into the unconscious. Ahh, at last, here is an hour, a day, a weekend to strip myself of the daily accumulation of demands, directions, distractions and disassociations, to allow the bare elements…

What Kind of Men's Retreat?


9142450699?profile=original

The Heart Arrow Quest is a time and place for men to remember who they are on a deeper level: as a man, as a human, as a seed of this earth, here to flourish in our own unique manner for this lifetime, for our people, and for the many lands entrusted to us.

It is a time for reconciling the balance of my life: do I have enough of my soul, enough spirit, enough of me in…

I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in. –John Muir (Scottish-born American naturalist 1838-1914)

The impulse to go out, get out, hit the road, take a vacation, nearly always holds within its volitional energy the urge to re-create or re-vision one’s life. We think of these common, even mundane responses to life’s regularity, schedule and regimen as almost a mechanical release valve, and although it…
