Greetings Kathy and a belated welcome to the online depth psychology community. It's great you've found us and are already engaged on the boards here.
As you may know, we currently have over 3465 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. From reading about you, I know you have much to offer our community. 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 you personalize your profile photo by going to your "My page" and rolling your cursor over the default C.G. Jung image. This gives you the option to switch it to a person picture. As well, there are many opportunities to engage as you browse the site. Please feel free to continue to post topics 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. If you are wanting or needing a push with your writing, I offer free daily writing prompts that you might find helpful.
You can also weigh in on the weekly depth discussions by clicking the image and quote at the top of the home page. And here's a link to help you navigate the site for your convenience.
Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions. I look forward to seeing you around the community.
