I see I am not the only one slow to respond to a comment, ie, your heart-felt welcome to the online Depth community. A very belated thank you! I don't get online very often. I see you like Brene Brown I discovered her about a year ago at the Global Leadership Summit Simulcast. What she writes about and shares about vulnerability being a strength is something I wish I had learned decades ago. It sure takes a lot of stress out of life and is improving my relationships. I am not familiar with the Ulanovs, but I do love watching God at work in my clients, having a front row seat, especially when He totally re-images a traumatic memory, and they see Jesus, and often someone else, overcome and release them-- simply amazing! What a privilege.

Ed - you had commented back in 2012 about enjoying some of the music on my website, even to the extent of it being a creative stimulus perhaps to some of your writings. I wanted to bring your attention to my Higgs Boson concert late in 2012, which wasn't posted until 2013. Here's a link to the video of The Higgs Boson, Part One. http://vimeo.com/56294695 From there you can also find Part Two, which is my preferred part of the concert, but I don't really know which half is better.

Hi Ed, Thanks for your comment and welcome back in 2012, for some reason I just received it. At this point I imagine you have completed your myth degree. Yes?

Hello Ed!

Thank you for your warm welcome! It's nice to be involved in this community! To answer your question about Antioch's orientation: I just took a class called Counseling Theories and Approaches. We learned about several theories including Freudian, Jungian, Adlerian and Rogerian. We also covered concepts of Behaviorism, Cognitive-Behavioral, Motivational Interviewing, and Dialectal Behavior Therapy. 

I don't feel as though we had a specific orientation that was pushed; we were introduced to several prevalent approaches. Our final paper was to select an orientation we felt best suited us, and research the theory more fully.

I have met several people who have attended Antioch 20+ years ago who have specialized in a Psychoanalytic approach as that was THE orientation being taught at the time. It's nice to have options, but my paper was on Depth Psychology ;)

Thank you for the warm welcome, Ed, and for taking the time to visit my website. I'm enjoying my exploration of all the Depth Psychology Alliance offers. What an amazing resource!

How do you like Pacifica? I am looking into their PhD in Depth with an emphasis in Community, Eco, and Liberation Psych!

Hello! Actually, I only recently discovered Jung's work. I spent two years in a Clinical Psychology PhD program and not a word was mentioned about depth work. I left as I wasn't satisfied with the quality of the program and now, at Antioch, we are reviewing much of Jung's work in various courses. I was thrilled to find an area that matches the way I conceptualize...life! It was really very inspiring and I am happy to have found this on-line community.

Thanks for the welcome Ed. I look forward to engaging in discussion with folks.

Thanks for the welcome Ed - I'm looking forward to gradually working my way into all that the site has to offer. I have a series of essays on Hermes and post modernity, creativity etc. in particular up at my website and at Scribd that I'll probably share once I work out the post function. Best wishes with the theatre piece you allude to - Jungian and Transpersonal modalities, I feel are very positive toward creative expression and I look forward also to encountering that exchange between psychology and creativity via this site. Best regards, Ian

Thank you Ed, the welcome is apprectiated and when I have that little extra moment in time, I will explore more and dive in. It is already refreshing to connect with some old colleagues and to be entering a world that has been here waiting for me. Like many here, I have varied interest besides over 35 years of psychotherapy practice with a Jungian orientation, the use of the expressive arts, Authentic Movement and Archetypal influences.
Just getting my profile picture set up is my next move and then I will in fact introduce myself further. Looking forward to ride. I have also been deep into the study of the 'Red Book' with the guidance of Sam Kimbles, Phd. past president of SF Jung Institute, and I never tire of the journey. Best, Lizbeth

Thank you Ed!  Martha Ann would be appropriate, you are correct.  I happen to be named after my Mother and my Grandmother, so to keep things straight, I go by Ann.  I am pleased to be a part of the Depth Psychology Alliance.  

I am looking forward to seeing what if anything is included concerning Depth Psychology in the Master's program I will be taking.  I really do not see how they could ignore Jung, but who knows.  Our educational institutions have been know to ignore some pretty obvious facts and occurrences.

Actually most people are unaware of cultural resource preservation, and commercial interests are often dragged into the process because of environmental regulations. The public, however, does seem to appreciate the preservation of cultural monuments and environmentally sensitive places. We can all thank the people who protected the Grand Canyon and ancient sites. In addition to their inherent worth, these places are certainly locales that can provide opportunities for meditation and soul-searching.

There are some wonderful plays right now. My daughter is in A View From the Bridge this month.

The theater not to miss is Court Theater in Hyde Park. There is God and then Charles Newel, the director at that theater. Anything is does usually transcends. Please let me know the dates and I will be happy to make some suggestions.

Hi Ed,

I do know some people at the institute (I used to know more) and... I see tons of theater in Chicago. This city cannot be surpassed for the variety and quality of theater. I have been going on average every two weeks. There is so much. Do you see much theater?

Thank you for the welcome.

You asked about my doctorate in anthropology. I began my graduate studies focusing on archaeology, but in the late 1970s the theoretical emphasis was on trying to establish law-like statements regarding human behavior, an approach I did not find congenial. My training was in both archaeology and cultural anthropology, but my thesis and dissertation were responses to currents in anthropological theory and the epistemology of the social sciences. I did get to do ethnographic fieldwork among the Navajo, and I taught many classes on religion, ritual, and myth. After receiving a Ph.D., I was hired as an archaeologist, primarily working on cultural resource management on historic sites. My work was based in New England, then in New Mexico, and then New York City, although I worked on projects all over the US.

My study of art and depth psychology has just begun, so I doubt that I have that much to contribute at this point. I do, however, look forward to the discussions to follow.

I belong to the Women's Day Alliance at the First Unitarian Church of Dallas, TX.  For our April program I put together excerpts from writings and talks of Joseph Campbell a Readers Theater presentation.  The title is Metaphors, Not Historical Facts.  I've included Campbell's interpretations of many religious symbols.  Campbell says that there is truth in any religion if one interprets the symbols metaphorically.  Are you familiar with the format of Readers Theater in which the cast speaks lines but in essence there is no acting?

Thanks much for the welcoming.  I will respond more fully when I can.

I just realized I never responded to this. Thanks much for the warm welcome. I intend to participate more in the rich offerings of this site this year. I am in Chicago. Where are you?

Regarding the cancellation of my December book club for Lilith: The Last Temptation of Adam - I am available to discuss this topic (the Jungian novel) either through any media on this site, or via private e-mail/Skype. I'd posted a discussion document ahead of the book club event on my discussion page: "Personal Transformation through the Myth of Lilith: The Last Temptation of Adam"
