Hi Dawn. I'd like to add my somewhat belated welcome to the Alliance. Hopefully, once you have a chance to explore the online community a bit, I think you'll find a dynamic group of likeminded people who are all intrigued by the field of depth psychology. And, while there are many Jungian analysts, clinicians, and 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.
On that note, I hope you're finding opportunities to engage as you browse the vast content and interact with others. You may want to consider joining the online book club if you haven’t already—There's a new author each month, and you can jump in at anytime and participate at whatever level you wish. February brings a wonderful new book from Jungian Analyst Erel Shalit as well as a special online study group on Astrology with long-time astrologer Kathleen Burt.
Also, I see you're in Santa Fe. There's another member there who is thinking about starting a local chapter so perhaps there will be a way to meet others face to face sometime soon!
Glad you checked out the Alliance. Especially like that we were recommended and you found us interesting enough to join. There are many blogs, forums, groups, interviews, book studies, etc. on many topics so I believe you will find much of interest. My guess is that with your interest in the dark feminine you have read works about the Black Madonna. Hope to see your entry into the many discussions. Again, welcome.
