Hi Donna- WoW! This was a nice surprise this morning to see your name pop up. David and Jane are also here, if you don't know, Louisa, too, I think or maybe she joined mythopoetry/facebook and I am confused. But, anyways, how cool! Drop a note from time to time or send a newsletter update so I can stay in touch. Everything here is changing dramatically everytime I drop by. That is not as often as I would like because everything is changing dramatically for mythopoetry.com and that is keeping me an active, although no expert, juggler of obligations there. Enjoy DPA and I will look forward to reading your posts wherever they are to appear. Bless, ~stephanie
I have also seen the marriage image as an inner/outer joining. As a therapist, I hope the marriage is a good one! :) I'm in Kentucky and have a small church and a small practice in therapy and spiritual direction. I'm two years away from finishing my dissertation, so even these two professions are taking a second seat. I will look forward to your posts.
Hi Donna. I would also like to add my welcome to Ed's. I'm glad you've found us. Your work is lovely--I'm so happy to see the depth psychological aspect of what youre are doing, regardless of any "degree: or education.
Meanwhile, I encourage you to jump in and engage right away by joining a discussion, commenting on others' posts, or posting some of your own work. I'll send you some tips on navigating the site in a separate email. Enjoy!

Enjoyed browsing your web site. You mention minister. Is that in any particular faith community or more a spiritual director? Glad to see that you are in Ohio. We mid-westerners need to find each other.
