"Given the state of racial relations in the United States, I would really like to have some resources on working with race in dreams. For instance, I know that Marion Woodman worked mostly with white women, and the black people who emerged in their…"

"PS  I did once go to to the John P. Coltrane church in the Haight-Ashbury district in San Fran. This was during the early 90s. I don't know if it is still there. But the church was a small room decorated with iconic, Byzantine-like portraits of…"

"Oh Melissa,
You are in need of a ticket to the South!! Yet beware that there are several types of Gospel music these days. :)   I prefer the Gospel of the African-American tradition. Talk about embodied soul!!! "

"Hi again Melissa,
Another vignette from that trip - Marion talked about being somewhere (don't remember where) and feeling quite ill.  She was sitting somewhere (maybe a bus station) when a black man sat next to her.  He told her to wait while he…"

  • Hi Melissa Jane. I was told years ago that it is possible to take classes required to be able to sit for the MFT license outside of regular MFT programs. I assume you would take the classes either at a school or online. You would need to contact the board for more information but I believe that it is possible.

  • Thank you for your friendship, Melissa!

Michael Meade on Fate & Destiny

I wasn’t expecting to get blissed out at a lecture on mythology, but since Michael Meade was the one speaking, I should have known better. A thoroughly engrossing storyteller, Meade made his presentation in part to promote his new book, Fate and Destiny: The Two Agreements of the Soul (GreenFire Press, 2010). He began the evening by using stirring stories from his own boyhood to illustrate the compelling nature of the topics of his book. Here’s an example: When Meade was on the verge of…

“Wherever there is erotic energy, there is also the potential for transformation.” These are wise words said by a therapist I once knew. And she was right: What better crucible for personal growth than intimacy? There’s nothing like a relationship to get things cooking in your psyche’s kitchen. But where does the alchemical power of sexual attraction come from? It all starts in a very innocent place: childhood.

 

The first people we “fall in love” with are our parents. Our…
