How did you hear about Depth Psychology Alliance?
What is your WEB SITE (IF you would like to promote it)?
I was just looking at xtranormal. Looks cool! I'm excited to see what I could do with it for my poetry, and perhaps a bit, my music :) It'd be interesting if I could represent the archetypes in tarot ala the program. Tarot is one of the ways I've been introduced to depth psychology.
Are you planning to make any more of those vids? Where'd you get the models, or how do you create them, if I I may ask? It'd be interesting to see other archetypes represented someday, if you have those interactions with your archetypes to put forward into video :)
I've just watched all your vids. I very much enjoyed them. A nice balance of information and entertainment, ala the animations :) I like the emphasis on confronting all of the darker archeypes that runs through the vids.
Welcome Gavin (an all the critters who came with you!! :) ),
I've enjoyed watching the clips and can see where they would be valuable in a teaching environment, so keep up the good work. Hope you find much to your interests within the many blogs, forums, and groups. You certainly have a means to creatively join the discussions!! :) Again, welcome.
Hi Gavin. Welcome to the Alliance. So glad you've joined us.
I hope as you explore the community a bit you are finding a dynamic group of likeminded 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. You can also post a few paragraphs of your own blog in the Blogs section and put a link so people can go to your site and read the rest.
Also, you may want to consider joining the online book club—There's a new author each month, and you can jump in at anytime and participate at whatever level you wish. Even if you don't have the book for this month, you can order it from Assisi Institute now and have it within a couple of days.
The Book Club is all done via writing in an open forum, so you can read all the comments that have gone on so far (including past authors in January and February!) and get a feel for what's happening. As you may know, in March, we are featuring a wonderful book from Jungian Analyst Dr. Michael Conforti, a specialist in archetypes and new sciences, "Field, Form, And Fate: Patterns in Mind, Nature, and Psyche." April will bring a whole new topic: "Eros and the Shattering Gaze: Transcending Narcissism" with Ken Kimmel. You can listen to interviews with both authors (and others) under the "Radio" link at top.
