Hello Chris, and welcome to the Archetypal Astrology group. What brings you to this particular group? I know you'll find lots of stimulation and learning among its assorted members!Let us hear from, and about you. Judie Harte
Hi Chris--So glad to hear you're able to connect and get some info here in the community. Re your question about the symbolic requirement at Sonoma State, you probably need to direct it to Laurel McCabe, the chair there---but if you have some ideas in mind, I'm sure she'll work with you to figure it out. I can't even remember what I applied for mine, but I'm sure anything like poetry, literature, an art class, dreamwork--maybe even a shamanism workshop would be a possibility...
Hi Chris. I would also like to add my somewhat belated welcome to the others'. I'm glad you've found us. I think you'll find many like-minded individuals in the community who also want to stay connected with other like-minded individuals, seek intellectual stimulation, and to work on better understanding themselves. Regarding Sonoma State's depth program, I am also a graduate and can't say enough good things about it. It opened up a whole new world for me and ultimately led to the establishment of THIS community. I talked to the chair last week and they have 12 new people in the program this year. My cohort was 11. It's a great number where you can become very close and confortable as a container for sometimes challenging topics.
Meanwhile, I'm happy to see you've jumped in here and seem to be making your way around the site OK--but in case you need detailed help on getting started and navigating the site, please use the following link-- http://www.depthpsychologyalliance.com/page/navigating-the-site --and please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions at all! I look forward to seeing you around the community~Bonnie Bright, Founder
It's a FASCINATING field! I LOVE it! An entire world of magic and awe unfolded right in front of me when I started practicing. I received my Certified, Clinical status through HCH Institute in Lafayette, CA. It's a state accredited post secondary vocational school with multiple certificate programs with a transpersonal emphasis. It took 4 months for the certification and 6 months for the clinical status.

There are other schools in the bay area, too, but I'm not aware of what they offer or how...
Hey Chris, I'm a grad student in my 2nd year in the SSU Depth Psych program. The "cohorts" are averaging in the 15 student per year range. If you're interested, feel free to call me (517-402-7406c) or email me directly (firstname.lastname@example.org). I'll be glad to answer what questions I can. You should probably start by checking out the program on the official SSU website. If still interested, you should contact the program coordinator, Dr. Laurel McCabe. She can answer your questions. Good luck!
Glad you found and decided to join the Alliance. Your interest in applying your degree is an interesting quest in that one of our earliest discussions within the Alliance was how people were exercising their degrees in depth psychology. As might be understandable, the applications were as wide as the personalities of the Alliance members. There is a strong desire within the Alliance to take Jungian thought and perceptions past the walls of the analyst's office and into the world. Enjoy the many blogs, forums, and groups. I look forward to your posts.
