Why do we need art?

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 fine painting.…See More

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 25 years of my career 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 the Esalen Institute.

Opening Space for Transformative Change

Posted on September 27, 2014 at 12:25pm 2 Comments

I recently met someone who is an international expert on social change movements. Over breakfast at my favorite café we talked about how successful social protests open up space in places where we think there isn’t any space. The conversation fascinated me because I’ve spent the past two years writing a book about metaphor and the creative process… But what I’m really writing about is space. Creative change happens when a certain kind of Space is opened. That’s what I do in…

The Wise Inner Wisdom of the Fairy Tale

Posted on April 21, 2014 at 2:25pm 0 Comments

One way to enter into the deep symbolic language of our soul is through a fairy tale. When we write a fairy tale, the words “Once upon a time” opens up a portal to another world. We have stepped into shamanic terrain.

  

Every fairy tale is psychologically significant. The narrative and images that show up are metaphorical, not literal. These metaphorical images are powerful, because they’re working on all levels at once. They will show you perspectives and doors that you wouldn’t…

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.

Ed
