My attraction stems from an interest in mythology and archetypes and how they give insight into our conscious and unconscious minds.

What is your WEB SITE (IF you would like to promote it)?
Hi Gaye. Greetings, and welcome to the online depth community. As you can see, the Alliance is a dynamic and growing group of people who understand the power of connecting around critical topics and the fact that we are a global community allows us to meet and learn from others in a multitude of ways--Narrative and Story not being the least of them since we all speak a common language here.
I think you'll find much to engage with as you begin to browse the vast content and start interacting with others. I encourage you to jump in right away and get your feet wet by simply sharing a link or article that has meaning for you or perhaps by commenting on others' posts, asking a question, or sharing some of your own thoughts or work.
In case you need detailed help on personalizing your profile picture or getting started and navigating the site, please use the following link-- http://www.depthpsychologyalliance.com/page/navigating-the-site --and please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions at all! I look forward to seeing you around the community~Bonnie Bright, Founder
Glad you found and joined the Alliance. I believe there is a strong overlapping of depth and narrative therapies. Being an old psychodrama enthusiast, I glad you mention the area in that I don't hear as much about the approach anymore. There are many blogs, forums, and groups so I believe you will find areas of interest and like-minded folks. Again, welcome.
