What is your WEB SITE (IF you would like to promote it)?
Hi Kathryn. Welcome to the online depth psychology community. I'm glad you've found us. It's great to see you're adjunct at Pacifica. There are many Pacifica alumni, faculty, and students her--myself included!--so you're in good company.
Meanwhile, as you may know, we currently have nearly 1500 members here 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.
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 you may want to consider participating in the online book club: July brings us “Marked by Fire: Stories of the Jungian Way” from Editors/Jungian Analysts Patricia Damery and Naomi Ruth Lowinsky. Since the Book Club is all done via writing in an open forum, you can join anytime and participate at your own level and schedule.
