Alison Vida commented on Genevieve Jacobs's blog post Autism and Typology
"My off-the-top-of -my-head guess is that we are looking at introverted intuition using sensation as a way of relating to the outside world. But wow - doesn't she use 'our' language beautifully! And I love this from the point of view…"

Alison Vida replied to Bonnie Bright's discussion Contra Naturam in Dream Patterning
"Some random thoughts re: "opus contra naturam," the alchemist's Art . . . it's so tricky, I think. On the one hand Jung says the drive to individuation is instinctual, and on the other, the purely natural man who driven by…"

"Bonnie, I am devastated by what you have so eloquently described. I did not know the real story of the Aswan Dam - though if I had thought about it, I probably could have imagined this scenario as true in Egypt as it is in virtually every part of…"

Melissa Jane commented on Alison Vida's blog post Autism as Shadow
"I think autism is an expression of our culture's shadow on a variety of levels. Those who suffer with autism are like canaries in the coal mine: they are warning us of the great costs of our dissociation from the Earth, our bodies, and our…"

Autism as Shadow

I was reading into Edward Whitmont (The Symbolic Quest) this afternoon, inspired to go there after listening to Bonnie Bright’s evocative conversation with Craig Chalquist. (http://bit.ly/h2nVh5). And I was fascinated by his discussion, in the first chapter, about autism. After describing autism, as Jung did before him, as subjective, image-directed and associatively logical (as opposed to causally logical), he points out the strong cultural bias against this…See More

Dear Alison,

How wonderful to hear from you here! I have thought of you many times and wondering how you are and about your plans. I am responding very late to your comment and only just to send a quick note now.... I haven't been able to revisit this site again since I registered - juggling many things at the moment. Hoping sometime soon to exchange more with you.

much warmth to you,

love,

Eleni

Welcome Alison,

Sounds like the sections on ecopsychology and dreams will be to your liking. There are many good folks seeking a better understanding and a better world in the Alliance. Glad you are with us.

Ed
