The Italian Revolution...

In the past I've been very struck by a description about CG Jung, namely that "he carried the consciousness of an entire culture."Although I'm not sure that any one person is doing exactly that in…Continue

Robert Bly & Marion Woodman

Dear Alliance members (all 3,500 of you  - what a great number!),



I keep coming across reports of how well Robert Bly and Marion Woodman worked together at the Great Mother Conferences. Apparently they were quite the Katharine Hepburn / Spencer Tracy act!



I'm keen to hear from any of you who attended the Great Mother Conference and are willing to share your memories.



Also, if any genius among you can find footage of the two at the conferences anywhere…

Peace one day: a note for all Alliance members

Posted on August 5, 2014 at 4:55am 0 Comments

Last night the city of London was plunged into darkness at 10pm. I'm sure many other places were too. The #LightsOut campaign was a way for everyone to mark the 100th anniversary of the start of World War I, on August 4th 1914. The idea was to turn out our lights and light a candle in memory of those who gave their lives.

Many of you will be aware of the prophetic dreams - nightmares - that Jung experienced which were tantamount to premonitions of war.…

Would it be possible to accredit Beha Institute on Psychological Studies?

In return, I could submit monthly articles on psychotherapy/psychology/ mental health, which you can publish.

Good evening Esther - it is wonderful to find a female friend who is able to announce that she is aligned. like me (choice) with Catholicism and was touched by my words from my heart and humble abode in the forest. A good friend to have indeed, so thanks for the invite! Peace + love Linda

Hi Esther,

I wanted to thank you for the very warm welcome to the community!  I am excited to begin exploring all things depth with the like-minded, diverse group of individuals here.

I just began The Red Book lecture series, which is proving to be quite incredible.  I am thankful for the experience and grateful for the offering through DPA. 

I look forward to sharing more with you.

Sincerely,

Casey J Winter

Dear Esther,

many thanks for your welcoming email and my apologies for the late reply. It is great  to meet another Londoner at the Alliance and I am looking forward to learning and sharing about myths and experiences. I had a look on your website and your work seems very interesting and soulful. If possible I will be very happy to join the next meetup about Campbell's work.
Looking forward to hearing from you,
Kindly,

Dear  Esther Waldron,

I am glad to receive your comment.

As a Chinese psychologist, when I first saw Carl Gustave Jung’s analytical psychology  20 years ago, I was suddenly enlightened by his collective unconscious, individuation, and active imagination technical, which evoke my subconscious and bring my memory of pursuing Taoism when young back to me. I can not help associating his thoughts with my understanding of traditional Chinese culture. Jungian analytical psychology is the closest among all Western psychological thoughts to the traditional Chinese culture, especially to“xiulian”emphasized by Taoism as well as the core idea of Tibetan Buddhism. I once saw an article which see Carl Jung as incarnation of“liuzu Huineng”, and he indeed in his later years built a tower to“recognize himself(修行自己)”

Honored to Join Jungian analysts organization, I’ willing to share the relevance of Taoism, Buddhism and Jungian analytical psychology. I was so interested in the concepts of active imagination, dream work and collective unconscious, while at the same time fully influenced by Chinese Taoism, Buddhism and Zen unconsciously.

Warm wishes

Gu

Hi Esther,

That's very good to hear!! I am about to listen to the first Robert Bosnak lecture on The Red Book - very grateful. Dominique

Hi Esther,

Thanks for your comment! I didn't know about David's course though I do have his book. What a resource! I am quite time limited as I have two young and energetic sons but I do hope to have time to explore, learn, listen and get involved. I see that you are interested in Marion Woodman's work - do you know of the BodySoul group on LinkedIn? I'm going to be going on my first intensive in July and very much looking forward to that :)

Warm wishes,

Dominique

Hi Esther. Welcome to the Alliance. I'm so glad you've found us and appreciate your comments about the site! Interestingly, Caryn Aman, Program Director for the Marion Woodman Foundation joined us the same day as you, so I don't know if it's synchronicity or if you actually know her and found us via her. Either way, it seems you should be connected if you aren't already given your specific mention of Marion's work :)

Meanwhile, as you may know, we currently have over 1500 members here from all over the world. I hope as you explore the community a bit you find a dynamic group of like-minded people who are all deeply drawn by the field of depth psychology. While there are many Jungian analysts and clinical 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, there are many opportunities to engage as you browse the site. When you're ready to jump in, please feel free to post a topic for discussion in the forum, respond to someone else's post, or share a link to an article or web site you like.

Also you may want to consider participating in the online book club: In August we're featuring Deep Blues: Human Soundscapes for the Archetypal Journey about Blues Music, Shamanism, and Jungian Psychology with Dr. Mark Winborn. Since the Book Club is all done via writing in an open forum, you can join the conversation anytime during the month, even if you don't have the book--and participate at your own level and schedule.

In case you need detailed help getting started and navigating the site, you can 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
