The Archetypal Beggar

The Beggar
Article by Erel Shalit

Rainer Maria Rilke: The Song of the Beggar

I am always going from door to door,
whether in rain or heat,
and sometimes I will lay my right ear in
the palm of my right hand.
And as I speak my voice seems strange as if
it were alien to me,

for I’m not certain whose voice is crying:
mine or someone else’s.
I cry for a pittance to sustain me.
The poets cry for more.

In the end I conceal my entire face
and cover both my eyes;
there it lies in my hands with all its weight
and look

When the Moon Casts a Woman Off

article by Naomi Ruth Lowinsky

The moon and then
the Pleiades
go down

The night is now
half-gone; youth
goes; I am

in bed alone
—Sappho (1)

When the Moon Casts a Woman Off

The muse is erotic. This is well known to the men who adore her. For me, her erotic nature can show up unexpectedly, as it did in India, or as it did during that powerful transition in a woman’s life—menopause.

When the moon has cast a woman off, and she is running hot and cold in a confusion of purposes, body and soul fighting over t

The Sun and the Sword,
The Moon and the Mirror

article by Erel Shalit

Besides the more commonly accounted for masculine, solar aspect of the hero’s journey, we may refer to a feminine, lunar attribute as well. They represent different attitudes vis-à-vis the unconscious.

The sun-hero has a dual relationship to the Great Mother, as exemplified by Heracles; his name means Glory of Hera, yet the goddess drives him to madness. He sets out on the mission to break free from the bonds of the Great Mother,

I first found and then fell in love with Depth Psychology through the Master's Program at Sonoma State University (north of San Francisco, CA). Now, the program, like so many, is prey to the budgetary concerns that are prevalent right now at the state school level. For the first time since the program began around 2000, there is a mandate for a minimum number of participants.

Speaking from experience, I can say the coursework, faculty, and process of getting my Master's in that program were all i

SSU Graduation Evening

Hi All,

Just wanted you to know that 6 students graduated from the Depth Program last nite at SSU. The event was held in the new music building which was the perfect venu. It is gorgorous with an outdoor area that includes a hugh firepit with charcoal and an indoor area with a large fireplace. It reminded me of being in a vineyard.

Each of the students did a fantastic job of presenting their work and their process to arrive at last nite. And they all used some kind of video/powerpoint to present t

I'm an MFT Intern in California--graduated Pacifica 2004, MA Counseling Psych. I love the work I do with clients and consider it an honor to share the journey with other human beings. But it has been a struggle for survival as a single parent--managing nearly 20 hours a week in an unpaid internship on top of 32+ weekly hours at my "day job". Typical work days are 12-14 hours for me with little time for myself, and the financial pressure has been intense. And I know there are many of us engaged i

the problem of the opposites

Jung recognized that the problem of the opposites is one of the most formidable obstacles to psychic integration. Even when we are able to integrate opposites there remains substantial tension between them. If the integration is so complete that the opposites literally merge, consciousness, as we know it, disappears. Consciousness of life depends upon the tension of opposites. So the problem is to bring them close together without a total

What is Depth Psychology?

What is YOUR definition of Depth Psychology???
Here's (the beginning of) mine:

Depthpsychology, a term first coined by Swiss psychiatrist, Eugene Bleuler, around the end of the 1800’s, has its beginnings in the work of Sigmund Freud and
another Swiss psychiatrist, Carl Gustav Jung, along with Pierre Janet
and William James. Depth Psychology explores the hidden or deeper parts
of human experience by seeing things in depth rather than taking them
apart. Certainly, it involves deep inquiry into the symb
