You are welcome. How are your studies at Sonoma going? Would love to hear a bit about the program you're in if interested in sharing. I completed the masters level of a PhD program in depth psychology with emphasis in Jungian and Archetypal Studies at pacifica this year and am now on leave of absence, trying to put together some vocational activities that use my training but support my family and ongoing tuition. It has been a breath of fresh air owning the work as a non-student, but a challenge to bring the work to a venue that supports our financial needs as a family. Still working out the details and the form.
Greetings Catherine and welcome to the online depth psychology community. It's great you've found us. Hope you'll make yourself at home and jump right in wherever your interests take you. I am a recent transplant to Boulder after 16 years in the Bay Area. My tie to Santa Rosa is a yearlong guide training program with Mike Bodkin at Rites of Passage. Hope to see you online and beyond.
As you may know, we currently have over 2600 members 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.
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. That will give you the option to switch it out. 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 someone else's post, or share a link to an article or web site you like.
