A theory of Psychic Parasitism

Posted on May 9, 2016 at 1:18pm 0 Comments

If we take the alchemical maxim "As Above, So Below" seriously, we should be able to find correlations between the structure of the psyche and other natural systems. This should also apply for the domain we call the shadow.  In my own work I have extrapolated the biological relationship profile we call parasitism onto the shadow of the psyche and found great similarities.  The active component of the shadow can be seen in terms of parasitic relationships.  Here is a video where I lay out…

Hi Colin,

I saw this offer on the Depth Alumni mailing list for Sonoma State. I thought of you and Melissa only in that it frames an offer, including pricing. BTW--I don't think it's important that you aren't licensed (as you mentioned on the phone). There are many things you and Melissa can do that don't require licensure.:

The Intersection Of Art Making and The Unconscious  
A didactic and experiential study of Jungian Psychology through Alchemical Art and Active Imagination

July 16 & 23, 2016  10 am to 5 pm


For information and registration, go to

*Alchemical Art is…

... a type of active imagination where a relationship with the
unconscious is cultivated through experimental art making.
We employ the attitude of the alchemist - experimentation and
observation in the service of transformation - through the
prima materia of paint, texture, junk mail, magazines etc. 
We put them through a variety of procedures and observe the
unfolding, both inner and outer.
As images appear, we, like the alchemists, let our creative 
imagination interact with them. If we are fortunate, meaningful
symbols might emerge.
Felicia Matto-Shepard, MFT is a psychotherapist in private 
practice since 1994. She is a Jungian Analyst, working at the
intersection of art, the body and image as a means of relating
to the psyche. (MFT31225)Felicia Matto-Shepard

Welcome to the Depth Psychology Alliance, Colin! We are an all-volunteer-led online organization that has grown to over 4,000 members worldwide. You have the opportunity to meet many like-minded souls from every corner of the world. Different cultures, but all devoted to the individuation journey.

I was intrigued with your website, a courageous and unique focus! For some reason, it reminded me of work done by a guy (not a jungian) by the name of Ken Ferlic in Pennsylvania. I may be way off base, but you might Google him.

I hope that you have a chance to participate in the many free events that are coming up, including our monthly Deep Meet & Greets and various Community Conversations that explore hot topics in the collective from the depth perspective. If you know of anyone who is wondering how to create meaningful work that also pays the bills, pass along information about my own call-in program, Let's Talk Work!--it's two times a week, free of charge, and open to all.

Whatever your interests, please enjoy noodling around in the site--there are countless recorded interviews, blog posts, topical online groups, posted articles, and educational opportunities.

Best regards,

Dorene Mahoney, Alliance Administrative Board Member
