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?
Many years of research and scholarship into psychosomatic phenomena and mind-matter anomalies using insights derived from Jung, Freud, Kohut, Winnicott and other psychoanalytic theorists. In particular, I have a profound interest in the human experience of the numinous and transpersonal dimensions of mind in its conscious and unconscious aspects and in the relationship of complementarity between mind and matter, psychology and religion.
