  • Thank you Pamela for the welcome. 

  • That sounds like a good start, Pamela! There's a specific thread in The Twilight Zone for people to float dreams. Hope to see you there! --Dorene

  • Welcome to Encountering the Numinous, Pamela! I hope you'll share some of your experiences of the divine in your life, however small or large.
  • Hi Pamela, No worry about your sign changing. I wrote an explanation about what the possible sign changes on my blog. Here is the link, if you want to read it. http://www.laishley.com/luna/changingsky/the-truth-about-whats-your...

    Thanks for the greeting.

  • Okay, I fall upon the hope of your forgiving grace (plus, I haven't had my morning coffee yet!) I think I'll just slink away to meditation now..... :)
  • We will have to scour the Arizona countryside!!!

    Hope you have enjoyed the site so far. Sorry the South in Jung in the South isn't Jung in the South West.

    However....you could start one? :)

  • How did I miss welcoming you to DPA????

    Okay, I'll try to make amends by welcoming you to Jung in the South. :)

    We are planning a conference sometime this year so I look forward to your input in the process.
