  • Greetings, Raashid, and a somewhat belated welcome to the online depth psychology community. It's great to have you here "all the way" from India.

    As you may know, we currently have nearly 1500 members here from all over the world. I hope as you explore the community a bit you find a dynamic group of like-minded people who are all 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.

    On that note, there are many opportunities to engage as you browse the site. When you're ready to jump in, please feel free to post a topic for discussion in the forum, respond to someone else's post, or share a link to an article or web site you like. Your blog looks great, so perhaps you can share excerpts here and link back to your site so people can find it.

    Also you may want to consider participating in the online book club: July has brought us “Marked by Fire: Stories of the Jungian Way” from Editors/Jungian Analysts Patricia Damery and Naomi Ruth Lowinsky and in August, we'll see Deep Blues: Human Soundscapes for the Archetypal Journey about Blue...--which may have some items of interest for you.  Since the Book Club is all done via writing in an open forum, you can participate at your own level and schedule.

    In case you need detailed help getting started and navigating the site, you can use the following link---- http://www.depthpsychologyalliance.com/page/navigating-the-site----and please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions at all! I look forward to seeing you around the community. ~Bonnie Bright, Founder

The lure of the forbidden then is the lure of the true self-”the self”.
But why then that which appears to be emitting images of our true self-”the self” is deemed forbidden?…
