Depth Psychology: Death of, Substitute for, or a Deepening of Faith?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Ed Koffenberger Jul 20, 2013. 16 Replies

It seems as I read Jung and post-Jungian folks, there is a splintering of consensus as to whether religion/faith/spirituality is a neurosis, an immature interpretation of the ways of the Psyche, or a…Continue

The "American Dream" and Boston

Started this discussion. Last reply by Beth Beagan Apr 26, 2013. 6 Replies

During the hours of TV coverage from Boston, one of the images that prompted discussion was how could two young men who were "living the American Dream" turn to such violence. So what does the phrase…Continue

Journey Conferences at St. Francis Springs Prayer Center

October 30, 2014 at 4pm to November 2, 2014 at 2pm
Journey Conferences focus on the dialogue between the psychology of Carl Jung & Christian spirituality along with spiritual experiences at the heart of other faiths. These conferences going forward, are intended to serve the ongoing (and necessary) evolution not only of those whose growth has been already deeply enlivened by the work of C. G. Jung, but also those new to it -- Christians and all people of faith along with those who find faith hard to come by.See More

The Alliance has two members in New Zealand. I have emailed them to see if they are safe and have not heard from them as of this post. In whatever way you understand numinous powers and the way such powers work in the world, please send your support to the people of New Zealand.

Black Swan

If you haven't seen the movie, its an archetypal feast (although beware of some of the graphic violence). In fact, I found myself thinking about it more as I drove away. Anyone else seen it yet?

Last Thoughts on Souling (for this year)

These are my last thoughts on souling for 2010. No, really.



I am now adjusting my thoughts to include a new image using the number four as borrowed from alchemy. Imagine four color circles all overlapping in the center. As stated in an earlier post (http://ignisspiritusllc.blogspot.com/), the center created by overlapping circles is the occurrence of…

I see I am not the only one slow to respond to a comment, ie, your heart-felt welcome to the online Depth community. A very belated thank you! I don't get online very often. I see you like Brene Brown I discovered her about a year ago at the Global Leadership Summit Simulcast. What she writes about and shares about vulnerability being a strength is something I wish I had learned decades ago. It sure takes a lot of stress out of life and is improving my relationships. I am not familiar with the Ulanovs, but I do love watching God at work in my clients, having a front row seat, especially when He totally re-images a traumatic memory, and they see Jesus, and often someone else, overcome and release them-- simply amazing! What a privilege.

Ed - you had commented back in 2012 about enjoying some of the music on my website, even to the extent of it being a creative stimulus perhaps to some of your writings. I wanted to bring your attention to my Higgs Boson concert late in 2012, which wasn't posted until 2013. Here's a link to the video of The Higgs Boson, Part One. http://vimeo.com/56294695 From there you can also find Part Two, which is my preferred part of the concert, but I don't really know which half is better.

Hi Ed, Thanks for your comment and welcome back in 2012, for some reason I just received it. At this point I imagine you have completed your myth degree. Yes?

Hello Ed!

Thank you for your warm welcome! It's nice to be involved in this community! To answer your question about Antioch's orientation: I just took a class called Counseling Theories and Approaches. We learned about several theories including Freudian, Jungian, Adlerian and Rogerian. We also covered concepts of Behaviorism, Cognitive-Behavioral, Motivational Interviewing, and Dialectal Behavior Therapy. 

I don't feel as though we had a specific orientation that was pushed; we were introduced to several prevalent approaches. Our final paper was to select an orientation we felt best suited us, and research the theory more fully.

I have met several people who have attended Antioch 20+ years ago who have specialized in a Psychoanalytic approach as that was THE orientation being taught at the time. It's nice to have options, but my paper was on Depth Psychology ;)

Thank you for the warm welcome, Ed, and for taking the time to visit my website. I'm enjoying my exploration of all the Depth Psychology Alliance offers. What an amazing resource!

How do you like Pacifica? I am looking into their PhD in Depth with an emphasis in Community, Eco, and Liberation Psych!

At 1:47pm on May 14, 2013, Nairy Kevork said…

Hello! Actually, I only recently discovered Jung's work. I spent two years in a Clinical Psychology PhD program and not a word was mentioned about depth work. I left as I wasn't satisfied with the quality of the program and now, at Antioch, we are reviewing much of Jung's work in various courses. I was thrilled to find an area that matches the way I conceptualize...life! It was really very inspiring and I am happy to have found this on-line community.

Thanks for the welcome Ed. I look forward to engaging in discussion with folks.

Thanks for the welcome Ed - I'm looking forward to gradually working my way into all that the site has to offer. I have a series of essays on Hermes and post modernity, creativity etc. in particular up at my website and at Scribd that I'll probably share once I work out the post function. Best wishes with the theatre piece you allude to - Jungian and Transpersonal modalities, I feel are very positive toward creative expression and I look forward also to encountering that exchange between psychology and creativity via this site. Best regards, Ian

Thank you Ed, the welcome is apprectiated and when I have that little extra moment in time, I will explore more and dive in. It is already refreshing to connect with some old colleagues and to be entering a world that has been here waiting for me. Like many here, I have varied interest besides over 35 years of psychotherapy practice with a Jungian orientation, the use of the expressive arts, Authentic Movement and Archetypal influences.
Just getting my profile picture set up is my next move and then I will in fact introduce myself further. Looking forward to ride. I have also been deep into the study of the 'Red Book' with the guidance of Sam Kimbles, Phd. past president of SF Jung Institute, and I never tire of the journey. Best, Lizbeth
