Hello Filip!
Welcome to the online depth psychology community. I'm so glad you've joined us and I am personally very excited about your work and writings on the intersections between psychoanalytic theory and social/political issues. This is a much needed area to be brought into Depth Psychology and what we are doing here at the Alliance!

As you may know, we currently have over 2000 members from all over the world and we're growing. 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 various walks of life including artists, writers, doctors, scientists, 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, as you may be aware of the January online book club featuring  "The War of the Gods in Addiction" with David E. Schoen who is, of course, also offering a free 4-week teleseminar which started January 9--though you can listen to the archived version and join any future week. Since the online part of the Book Club is done via writing in an open forum, you can participate at your own level and schedule--and you can join the discussion anytime, even if you don't have the book. Also, a special study group on the Red Book with Robert Bosnak started January 19 and you can join this too at any time.

In case you need detailed help getting started and navigating the site, you can use the following link---- please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions at all! I look forward to seeing you around the community.

Jesse Masterson, Alliance Boardmember
