Please share a little about yourself by way of introduction. What draws you to Depth Psychology and what are you looking for from this community?
I have studied Jungian Psychology with The Albany Trust a private training provider in Christchurch and work as a Counsellor, Educator at Hagley College and in a small private practice. I have continued my education through reading many archetypal writers and attended The Mythic Imagination Conference in Atlanta, where I had the joy of meeting James Hillman , Michael Meade and many more inspiring people. When Robert Romanyshyn came to Christchurch we shared conversations on the poetic voice which spontaneously nourishes me as a daily ritual. Two years ago I trained with Passageworks Institute in Boulder to enable me to bring their Engaged Classroom work to my school, as a way to bring soul work into the classroom. I feel isolated in NZ and value being part of a like minded community.

What is your WEB SITE (IF you would like to promote it)?
Greetings Glenyse and welcome to the online depth psychology community. It's great you've found us! We are accepting submissions for the Fall 2014 E-Zine Depth Insights and you might want to submit an essay for consideration.
As you may know, we currently have over 3200 members 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.
We recommend that to get started, you personalize your profile photo by going to your "My page" and rolling your cursor over the default C.G. Jung image. That will give you the option to switch it to a person picture. As well, 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 another member's post, or share a link to an article or web site you like.
Here are a few quick links to front page items that may be of interest to you. The Multimedia Library contains talks, videos and articles that may be of interest to you. The Depth Insights e-zine has articles, poetry, and images from past issues. And, then we have the Events page which contains calls for papers, upcoming conferences, and workshops.
