What is your WEB SITE (IF you would like to promote it)?
Glad you found and joined the Alliance. As an MFT I might mention the group within the Alliance of MFTs. There are many topics within the many blogs, forums, and groups so I believe you will find much to your interests. Again, welcome and I look forward to your posts.
Hi Heather. Welcome to the Alliance. It's great to have you here.
Once you have a chance to explore the online community a bit, I think you'll find 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. Some simple ideas to get your feet wet are to introduce yourself in the forum; asking a question, or responding to someone else's post; or sharing a link to an article or web site you like.
You may want to consider joining the online book club if you haven’t already—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, it's all done via writing in an open forum, so you can read all the comments that have gone on so far and get a feel for what's happening. In February, we are featuring a wonderful new book from Jungian Analyst Erel Shalit," The Cycle of Life", as well as a special online study group on Astrology with longtime astrologer Kathleen Burt. March will bring a new book from Dr. Michael Conforti, a specialist in archetypes and new sciences, "Field, Form, And Fate".
Last ,due to your involvement with the SF Jung Institute (congrats on your progress!), it looks like you may be the San Francisco Bay area. We are holding the first-ever local chapter meetup and speaker evening for the Alliance on March 23, so if you are interested in meeting other Alliance members and likeminded people for a great speaker on Jung, Crop Circles, and the Archetypal Feminine, I hope you'll come!
