"The episode sounds consistent with Goethe's (and Steiner's) interest in phenomenology."

Broken-hearted, lost in a labyrinth, encountering angels

PSYCHOLOGICAL LIFE begins in the imagination. That’s one reason I have a sign in my office, dangling from the mantel, that asks clients if they have a dream to share or if something unusual happened since their last session.The latter — odd, sometimes surreal experiences — often communicate at great depth what is going…See More

Publishing dissertation

I'm interested to know if anyone here has published a doctoral dissertation or thought about it. I was approached about doing it by two publishers when I finished mine, but my attitude has been that I would rather be set on fire than ever look at the thing again.Now, I've received another inquiry about publishing it. Since I'm trying to rebuild my practice after letting it all but disappear, I'm thinking it might be to my advantage to publish it in the interest of establishing credibility. But…See More

Free (intensive) mythology class

I am curious if anyone has taken one of the free classes offered by Coursera. If you don't know about it, they are taught by some really noted professors, sponsored by some leading universities.I enrolled in one in Greek and Roman Mythology that begins Monday, April 22. It's 10 weeks and requires a lot of reading, videos, and forum discussion. Apparently, thousands of people -- well, the instructor says tens of thousands -- have enrolled, which is pretty mind-blowing.Check it out here:…See More

Elaine Pagels on the Book of Revelation

The New Yorker has an interesting essay on Elaine Pagel's new book, "“Revelations: Visions, Prophecy, and Politics in the Book of Revelation” (Viking). I posted the following on Facebook about the New Yorker essay:

I grew up in the New Church, which is based on Swedenborg's symbolic reading of the Book…

Remembering the brilliant, cantankerous, imperfect James Hillman

I've written a pretty lengthy post on my personal blog, Sacred Disorder (linked below), about my struggle with James Hillman's work and my encounters with him during my years at Pacifica Graduate Institute. Here's the opening:

Cliff, welcome to The Twilight Zone and Encountering the Numinous! I checked out your site and look forward to having you share your thoughts on the different issues that surface in these groups. Also, feel free to launch a thread on one or more issues of particular interest to you. Fresh voices are always welcome.

I am a business coach, but I too use depth methods to help my clients reconnect with their deeper selves and move through blocks. In fact, my work today is very much influenced by my master's thesis which was entitled, "Images of Individuation: Using Collage to Inquire into the Nature of Disquiet." It was an amazing study and really changed my life as a business woman. That project focused on collage, but one could use drawing, or clay, or active imagination, or any number of non-rational methods to access what is outside of conscious thought for an individual. I will enjoy following your work.

I hear you about what to do with a Depth Psych PhD...The good news is that this site is really beginning to be populated with lots of professionals who are doing exciting things with a Jungian or Depth Psych education. So much value in community!--hope it gives you some ideas and valuable connections...

Hello Cliff,

I've just visited your blog at "Sacred Disorder" and was glad that I had done so as it validates much of what I am always writing about - the power of images and of healing. It's good to meet another person here.

Hi Cliff. Welcome to the Alliance! I know your name...but not sure from where. Pacifica? Twitter? Forgive me: I'm sure I should remember! Regardless, so glad you're here and looking forward to knowing you more! Enjoy the community!
