What is your WEB SITE (IF you would like to promote it)?
Hello, Lauren, and a belated welcome to the online depth psychology community. It's great to have you here. There are so many artists in the community and art is such a wonderful aspect of depth psychology, of course. I have few formal skills personally but truly appreciate it in so many ways and find art therapy very helpful.
Meanwhile, as you may know, we currently have nearly 2500 members from all over the world and we get some lively discussion going at times. Meanwhile, I hope as you explore the community a bit you find a dynamic group of like-minded 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. To begin with, please take a moment to upload a personal photo to your profile and to introduce yourself in the forum.
