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 passion over the past 30 years has been to understand how adults learn in everyday life. Despite graduating with a PhD from the University of Chicago and having a famous advisor to work with (Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi), it wasn't until I started reading about metaphor in George Lakoff's Metaphors We Live By, that I began to get a better understanding of how adults learn in life. That led me to depth psychology, which has allowed me to bring together my passions for both adult learning and art/creative process. (Needless to say, teaching, learning, and life itself are all creative processes. Creative process is the foundation of everything in life.) I teach at Pacifica Graduate Institute, the Sophia Center at Holy Names University, and have led workshops at Esalen Institute.

A Message from the Other World

Posted on November 9, 2016 at 12:00pm 1 Comment

Despite my desire for zen-like calm, I've been affected by the deeply unpleasant US election and negative, hard-to-believe-this-is-the-US, stories in the news media. Sometimes I feel afraid…of nuclear war, climate change, and violence that I can't control. I worry about “what could happen.” And in…

Being Profoundly Moved by the Creative

Why do we need art?

Posted on May 1, 2016 at 9:00am 0 Comments

I grew up in a hard working Norwegian farming family in the Midwest and not surprisingly, Midwestern practicality is etched into my cells. When I walk into an art gallery, I often marvel at the amount of time someone spent gluing hundreds or thousands of tiny pieces of glass into a sculpture or creating a…

Hi Kim, just to let you know that I've ordered your book. My daughter is the principal of a high school for very troubled children. She's quite an experimental and unique special educator and I want her to see what you've written.

We will feel the loss and presence of Hillman for a long time to come. 

It's good to know we have this forum to connect with heart and soul-minded others, Judie

Welcome Kim,

I enjoyed your web site and will visit it again. There are several members of the Alliance who either work in the arts or have a great love for them (myself included). Glad you have joined us and hope to see your posts (and pictures?) soon.
