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?
Well, I suppose soul draws me like a magnet to Depth Psychology; I love the interaction of intellectual challenge and artful imagination. I seek connection with others with similar interests: I know some great therapists, and spiritual seekers where I live, but desire connection with a wider community of Jungian/Depth oriented thinkers/practicioners.
Do you belong to any other online Psychology-related communities or orgs? If so, which?
I am currently taking Dr. Michael Conforti's Red Book teleseminar, and I follow Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes online (facebook) community and have been in several of her teleseminars as well. I also just joined theweb page of the Imaginal Institute, it looks very interesting!

Hi Rebecca. Greetings, and glad you've found the online depth community. I would like to add my welcome to Ed's.
The Alliance is a dynamic and growing group of people who understand the power of connecting around critical topics and the fact that we are a global community allows us to meet and learn from others in a multitude of ways. I have done a few sessions of the Red Book with Dr. Conforti as well and he is a wonderful friend to the Alliance.
I think you'll find much to engage with as you begin to browse the vast content and start interacting with others. I encourage you to jump in right away and get your feet wet by simply sharing a link or article that has meaning for you or perhaps by commenting on others' posts, asking a question, or sharing some of your own thoughts or work. Some posts from your existing blog would be great if you feel inclined.
In case you need detailed help on personalizing your profile picture or getting started and navigating the site, please use the following link-- http://www.depthpsychologyalliance.com/page/navigating-the-site --and please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions at all!
