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?
Jung has been a light for my path for many years. With dream work intensified through the Haden Institute work, and seminars through Asheville Jung Center, Dayton Jung Society, etc., I am finally integrating it and making it more useful to self and others.
Do you belong to any other online Psychology-related communities or orgs? If so, which?
Asheville Jung Center, Houston Jung Society, Dayton Jung Society. Just made contact with Atlanta Jung Society, Cincinnati Friends of Jung.

I train newborn massage instructors to teach new families how to massage their babies from birth on. I have a website but don't see it appropriate to promote from your site. Thanks anyway.

You need to be a member of Depth Psychology Alliance to add comments!
I am fascinated by your work with newborn massage work. The word "beautiful" sprung into my head when I read it. Okay, back to the official welcome and apologies for my late arrival. Glad you joined the Alliance and I see you are well connected with many of the programs around the country. I hope you are enjoying the groups you joined and will continue to dialogue with others. Again, welcome and I look forward to your posts.
Hi Teresa. Glad you've found the Alliance, and please forgive the belated greeting. What remarkable work you do with newborns, essentially setting a tone that will be with them the rest of their lives. It seems very depth-related to me, and I can see the connection to soul work there.
Meanwhile, I hope you've had a chance to explore the community a bit and that you are finding a dynamic group of likeminded 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. When you're ready to jump in, please feel free to post a topic for discussion in the forum, respond to someone else's post, or share a link to an article or web site you like. You can also post a few paragraphs of your own blog in the Blogs section and put a link so people can go to your site and read the rest.
Also, you may want to consider joining the online book club—There's a new author each month, and you can jump in at anytime and participate at whatever level you wish. Even if you don't have the book for this month, you can order it from Assisi Institute now and have it within a couple of days.
The Book Club is all done via writing in an open forum, so you can read all the comments that have gone on so far (including past authors in January and February!) and get a feel for what's happening. As you may know, in March, we are featuring a wonderful book from Jungian Analyst Dr. Michael Conforti, a specialist in archetypes and new sciences, "Field, Form, And Fate: Patterns in Mind, Nature, and Psyche." Dr. Conforti is also offering the free teleseminar you mentioned. April will bring a whole new topic: "Eros and the Shattering Gaze: Transcending Narcissism" with Ken Kimmel.
