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.

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 spent about 10 years working with a Jungian Analyst in Dream Therapy on the process of Individuation and I am pursuing graduate studies. I hope to maintain connections with other like minded individuals, stay in tune with current discussions and the Work, and explore the development of Jungian educational programs and workshops in my area, while informing my interests in social research from a Jungian perspective. My undergraduate studies in Sociology, explored through a Jungian lens, expanded my understanding of the social world and the relevance of the Collective in this area, and my understanding of Jung as not only Psychologist, among many other hats (labels), but also Jung as Sociologist.

Welcome to the Depth Psychology Alliance, Tanya. Sorry it's taken me so long to check in with you! The Alliance is a perfect place to explore Jung's work around the collective. In fact, our core vision is to get Jung's approach to owning one's shadow as a way of affecting the collective and its penchant for going to war. Have you read the story of Richard Wilhelm and the Rainmaker (from about 1919)? It is a true story of Wilhelm's experience, and it informed most Jung's work around individual dynamics within the collective.
The Alliance is an all-volunteer community, and as a member of our community, you will indeed meet like-minded individuals from every part of the globe--different cultures and all devoted to deep psyche and the individuation journey.
I hope that you will check out online events that are coming up, including our free monthly Deep Meet & Greets that bring people together and Community Conversations that explore hot topics in the collective from the depth perspective.
Please enjoy noodling around in the site--there are countless recorded interviews, blog posts, topical online groups, posted articles, and educational opportunities.
