Archetype of the Spy or Secret Agent

The secret agent or undercover spy motif appears in many films from comic (Austin Powers) to serious (Eye of the Needle; The Exception; Inglorious Basterds;anything by John Le Carre).   The theme I am interested in is how the spy has to fit in and appear a part of the scene being spied upon, yet the spy's loyalties are to another group.  Any thoughts on how the Spy is an archetype, especially as it appears in dreams or elicits cringe worthy feelings in the analysand?See More

Please share a little about yourself by way of introduction. What draws you to Depth Psychology and what are you looking for from this community?
I have been a student of Jungian topics for over 20 years, have read much and attended many seminars. Archetypal theory has become for me a way of understanding the human realm.
Do you belong to any other online Psychology-related communities or orgs? If so, which?
Houston Jung Center membership. I time my visits to Houston to visit my daughter's family there usually in conjunction with a seminar or speaker I want to hear at the Center. I just returned from "Jung in Israel" a trip organized by the NY Jung Center and have participated in other Jung-related trips such as the 2009 "Ancient Greece/Modern Psyche" on Santorini that Tom Singer organized. Occasionally I can get to Santa Fe for an event, but the last was the webinar for the Red Book unveiling in 2010 at Monika Wikman's ranch.

Hello Jerry,

Welcome to the online depth psychology community. I'm so glad you've joined us. As you may know, we currently have over 2100 members from all over the world and we're growing. 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 various walks of life including artists, writers, doctors, scientists, healing professionals, counselors, students, business people, etc--so there is much cross-disciplinary knowledge and experience here to be shared.

On that note, please take a moment and introduce yourself in the Forum and let the community know what brings you here or what your background is. Also, there are many opportunities to engage as you browse the site. When you're ready to jump in, please feel free to post a topic for discussion in the forum, respond to someone else's post, or share a link to an article or web site you like.

The January online book club featuring  "The War of the Gods in Addiction" with David E. Schoen has just ended, but you can still read the archived comments and listen to the four weekly archived teleconferences with David if you want--or browse the written discussions from past months as well. We'll have more Book Club groups in coming months. Otherwise, we've just launched an ongoing special study group on the Red Book with Robert Bosnak which you can join anytime if you wish.

In case you need detailed help getting started and navigating the site, you can use the following link---- and please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions at all! I look forward to seeing you around the community.
