Good to see you here, Mary! Welcome to the Alliance! :)
As you may know, we currently have over 1900 members from all over the world and we're growing. 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. While there are many Jungian analysts and clinical psychologists here, our members come from various walks of life including artists, writers, doctors, scientists, healing professionals, counselors, students, business people, etc--so there is much cross-disciplinary knowledge and experience here to be shared. On that note, there are many opportunities to engage as you browse the site. When you're ready to jump in, please feel free to post a topic for discussion in the forum, respond to someone else's post, or share a link to an article or web site you like. Also, as you may be aware, the January online book club is featuring "The War of the Gods in Addiction" with David E. Schoen who is, of course, also offering a free 4-week teleseminar starting TODAY, January 9. Since the online part of the Book Club is done via writing in an open forum, you can participate at your own level and schedule--and you can join the discussion anytime, even if you don't have the book. Also upcoming in January is a special study group on the Red Book with Robert Bosnak starting January 19.

Glad you found and joined the Alliance. Its also nice to find folks closer to where I reside in Louisville, KY. Are you involved with the Cincinnati Jungian group? Congratulations on your (new) teaching position. Where will you be sharing your knowledge and experience?
