"Amen. This is what I find to be a sensitive and keen forum moderation.
To simplify my first post, it helped me tremendously to reread Jung’s reflections on the great war. I needed to withdraw my identification with the…"
"Thank you, Peter, this is brilliant and quite helpful, actually. This event brings to the individual yet more responsibility which seems at this moment in my process as an intuitive-feeling type, almost impossible. One cannot help but…"
I would like to add that after the election results I found this in-time article in the New Yorker and I wept in relief. Why? Because ten years ago a journalist writing in the collective would never have broached the truth of…"
"Bonnie, thank you for your courage of expressing your depth feelings.
Pre-election results I admitted, after 3 months of tension headache, that I had indeed become caught into the UNCONSCIOUS outer conflict and hysteria of the world and lost…"
Thank you, Die-off it is! I resonate with this image as I am three years into the candida cleanse both psychic and somatic. Jung was a shaman, as it has been said. We are excavating the deeps, though I have found that…"
I read your piece, thank you. In the depths, we are being shredded. In the depths we are engaged in the great battle. Yet we continue to see only the outer conflicts and terrors and avoid resolving our own.…"

You are so right, as psychology defined is in truth “the study of soul.” Within this definition, of course is our tried and true Psyche/Eros myth to which I often refer when tasks are almost too arduous.
"Speaking only from my experience -- I would think the first “test” would be to engage in a Jungian

I wrote the following introduction to a book published in 1993. At the time I was ensconced in the importance of birthing the Feminine (Soul). All these years later it seems evident to me that the only solution is to…"
This group exists as a place to further and expand on the inquiry into the role of depth psychology, now and in the future; for clinicians and non-clinicians. It is intended to look at what role it plays in our individual lives as well as in the culture, and how we might "take depth psychology to the streets" as an offering to help restore balance in a world that is currently out of balance on so many levels. Anyone can add thoughts, comments, questions, images, links, articles, etc. that you…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?
I have been a student of Jung since 1983. I have been writing my personal myth since 1991. I would hope to gain a degree of "socialization of Self" with like-individuating souls.
I have recently published (8) hardover books-- including a trilogy of memoir, poetry, novel, and novella covering 20 years of personal mythmaking-- to (8) paperbacks on Amazon here: http://www.amazon.com/s?ie=UTF8&field-author=Pamela%20Preston&a...

What is your WEB SITE (IF you would like to promote it)?
Greetings Pamela and welcome to the online depth psychology community. It's great to have you here! You have been on this path of depth for a considerable period of time and your contributions and reflections will be of great value to many in the community here.
As you may know, we currently have nearly 2500 members from all over the world. 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 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.
On that note, there are many opportunities to engage as you browse the site. To begin with, please take a moment to upload a personal photo to your profile and to introduce yourself in the forum. You can also post a topic for discussion there, respond to someone else's post, or share a link to an article or web site you like, or comment on your current work or ask a question.
