Greetings, James. Welcome to the online depth psychology community. I'm so glad you've joined us. It's great to see you're in the Bay Area. Perhaps you can join us for one of our local meetups this year. We have one coming up on February 1 in Marin. You can find the details in the Events section here on the Alliance.
Meanwhile, 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, please take a moment and introduce yourself in the Forum and let the community know what brings you here or what your background is. Also, 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, the January online book club featuring "The War of the Gods in Addiction" with David E. Schoen also includes a free 4-week teleseminar Wednesdays in January--though you can listen to the archived version and join any 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 in January--as you likely know-- we've just launched a special study group on the Red Book with Robert Bosnak which you can join anytime if you wish.
