"Barry, welcome to the tangled, twisted, tortured world of mass madness.  I guess, according to the citations in your essay,  my taste for Mexican cooking and my having "learned how to make it" from friends who are Mexican by birth  (since I am not…"

"Hi Vanita, I couldn't agree with you more! Every day that passes convinces me that there is an ever increasing  collective insanity being displayed in the behavior of the populous.  I make it a point in discussions with friends and others to ask the…"

  • Hi Robert - Welcome to the group. What are your interests in mythology? Best, Willi

  • Greetings Robert and a belated welcome to the online depth psychology community. It's great you've found us! 

    As you may know, we are fast approaching 3500 members from all over the world. I hope as you have explored the community a bit you have noticed what a dynamic group of like-minded people are here, all who are 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.

    We recommend that to get started, you personalize your profile photo by going to your "My page" and rolling your cursor over the default C.G. Jung image. This gives you the option to switch it to a person picture. As well, 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 another member's post, or share a link to an article or web site you like. I share your fascinations with Carl Jung, archetypal psychology, shamanist and dreams; I'm also a graduate of PGI. I look forward to reading your posts!

    Here are a few quick links to front page items that may be of interest to you. The Multimedia Library contains talks, videos and articles that may be of interest to you. The Depth Insights e-zine has articles, poetry, and images from past issues. And, then we have the Events page which contains calls for papers, upcoming conferences, and workshops. If you are wanting or needing a push with your writing, I offer free daily writing prompts that you might find helpful.

    You can also weigh in on the weekly depth discussions by clicking the image and quote at the top of the home page. And here's a link to help you navigate the site for your convenience.

    Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions. I look forward to seeing you around the community.

     

    Best Regards,

    Donna May, Board Member
