I am a completely self-taught Jungian mystic. I would love to have some kind of connections to people who understand the magnitude of Jung's contributions to modern psychology and religion. Search YouTube for "Zach Tollen", or listen to my podcast:"The Ethan and Zach Trio". I identify with Carl Jung, Joseph Campbell, and a few others, although sadly I am not connected to any community who appreciates them the way I do.
See below for links.
Do you belong to any other online Psychology-related communities or orgs? If so, which?
Hi Zach, I am deep (no pun intended) into Personality Type- an Owner's Manual and it is opening up huge vistas in my point of view, one of the best books I have read. Thank you for the tip about this.
I am sending a friend request to you. Unfamiliar with Facebook, I just always consider everyone my friend, so I don't know when to 'friend' or not. I would be horrified to 'unfriend' someone- in my personal life, even people I would be mad at would still be my friend.
Depth Alliance is a strange, introverted place but I hope you will continue to share input here. Even when people don't comment, they are still following threads and information that is introduced. Good day to you,
Greetings Zach and a very warm welcome to the online depth psychology community. It's great you've found us!
As you may know, we now are made up of 4,021 members from all over the world. I hope that as you have explored the community you have noticed what a dynamic group of like-minded people are here, all who are 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.
