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?
My mentor in college fascinated me with the way he regarded the world. He was an anthroposophist (and a phenomenologist). Not wanting to be either of those I have searched and searched for something that was similar: the writings of Jung, Hillman, Barfield, Dobbs, Progoff, Neumann, Piehler, etc., etc., seemed all to have in common depth psychology so here I am. I am most interested in visionary art and literature and how it has been interpreted and reinterpreted through history. There images that seem to accompany us on our journey and that is the most marvelous and real answer to materialism and scientism, as well as the truest description of my own experience, that I have encountered in the realms of theories and explanations.
Being a part of this community I hope to participate in imaginative, intelligent and positive conversations about direct experience and the stories we tell about it.

What is your WEB SITE (IF you would like to promote it)?
Do you mean my website? I just moved back from Hawaii a few months ago, I am now in Sacramento California trying to get organize so I haven't paid any attention to websites. I just realized that this website is hook up to my old e-mail! I'll see if I can change that.
