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?
I wrote a book while in a mild state of psychosis and then later found out that it had a lot of the approaches recommended in Depth Psychology.
Do you belong to any other online Psychology-related communities or orgs? If so, which?
I'm glad you found us too! Sounds like a huge adjustment is under way for you. Seventeen years ago I moved in the opposite direction (from city to country) and it was a huge adjustment. I know if I ever had to move back to a big city, it would be very hard. Hope you come back to the forum here often.
Since you are interested in mythology, have you signed up for Craig Chalquist's free online lecture? It is on March 14th & I am going to attend this. Looking forward to seeing you around here more often...Blessings, D
Greetings Maryse and a very warm welcome to the online depth psychology community. It's great you've found us!
As you may know, we now are made up of 3,867 members from all over the world. I hope that as you have explored the community you have noticed what a dynamic group of like-minded people are here, all who are deeply drawn by the field of depth psychology. While there are many Jungian analysts and clinical psychologists here, our members come from many walks of life--artists, writers, doctors, healing professionals, counselors, students, business people, etc--so there is much cross-disciplinary knowledge and experience here to be shared.
We recommend that to get started, you personalize your profile photo by going to your "My page" and rolling your cursor over the default C.G. Jung image.
