Depth Psychology

Alchemical dream of the wild instincts competing for domain over the prima materia of my mind's work

The term depth psychology refers to all approaches to the mind which emphasize the role of the unconscious. I focus on Jungian studies and Jung’s approach to dream study because his main premises were around individuation or a life trajectory toward wholeness.

During my stint in a Ph.D. program, I found myself seeking the sources of strong writing and well-being. Angst about the program seemed to be blocking my access to the powerful writing ability I wanted to develop. I cannot contemplate a blog that does not encompass both my fiction writing and my great passion for depth psychology and dream work.

My next series, The Neyna, will be more sci fi and in some ways addresses my profound concern for our planet.
