Hello, I am a 35 year old. I work in a paper mill by myself on nights in a boiler room (time to read and listen to lectures), and an aspirin artist of intermediate level. I became interested in psychology through reading politics, history, and economics, and coming to the realization the problem was psychological. I started with mass psychology (Le Bon, Trotter) and didn't read Jung until seeing Jordan Peterson's take on archetypes (though I now have some contentions via Jung, and Hillman), recognizing them in movies and books seemed to trigger something in me, causing dreams of religious intensity, so I read Jung, Hillman, Von Franz, and Neumann like a maniac to get through it, and basically going insane and putting myself back together for about a year. I have seen your videos with Robert Bosnak, and someone on Facebook told me to check out your resources. I have sent a request to the Cyber Dreamwork site, and am interested in a community who understands these things, and any events or dream groups that come up. I have been unable to find any face to face groups other than a Jung society that requires 50 hours of analysis to join. The closest analyst to me is 3 hours, and on top of agreeing with much of Hillman's Myth of Analysis premise, I don't want to pay someone $100 bucks an hour to be understood.
