"In the US, diseases of the heart are the #1 killer. I believe that's because as a culture, we've underestimated the role the heart plays in our perception and cognition...and the language of the heart is METAPHOR."

There is something under the surface that urgently wants our attention....and the world urgently needs it.On that note, I just wanted to put out a quick reminder about tomorrow's special teleclass “Fiercely Connected to Deep Soul Wisdom" with the Depth Psychology Alliance.…See More

Ph.D. from University of Chicago in Adult Learning
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.

Healthy, Strong & Vital: Tapping Metaphor’s Healing Powers

Posted on October 6, 2017 at 1:30pm 0 Comments

When I was growing up, my mother frequently said that I was “accident prone.” Perhaps it’s because I broke my leg when I was two by “putting my foot down” when the neighbor kid was pushing four of us on a carriage swing. I wanted him to stop pushing so hard and when screaming didn’t work, I tried another tactic.

My mother was probably right, I think I’ve had more than my share of injuries and broken bones.

When I think about all the desires I have in life, having peace of mind…

"The Power of Metaphor to Unlock Creative Genius" -- Women in Depth Podcast

Posted on February 18, 2017 at 4:13pm 0 Comments

On Inauguration Day in the US, I was interviewed on the Women in Depth podcast.   It was deeply symbolic for me, because intense feminine energies that have been underground for centuries have been showing up in full force in Doorway sessions these past few months. There's a whole other realm that urgently…

A Message from the Other World

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

Many years ago I sat on a stool in the Art barn at Esalen Institute painting a paper mache mask. I'd originally signed up for some sort of contemplative workshop, but found it too cerebral and ended up here.

I painted the mask…

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.
