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,
PS. We are 'linked' on LinkedIn.
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!
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.
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.
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.
