Reﬂecting on the human condition and the mysteries of the human soul has been my lifelong career. This was my role in my extended and nuclear family. My best friend's mother called me 'the little priest' when I was 7. I could easily have entered religious life.
Before coming to psychotherapy I struggled as an artist and was an art teacher; I took a dive into my own personal hell realms, where I discovered the deep and sustaining steps and traditions of AA and the deep interior world of psychotherapy. Eventually, in 1980, I entered the ﬁeld working in a chemical dependency program serving what we then called the gay and lesbian community. I decided to get my graduate degree in psychology. My undergrad work had been in art and education.
The cornerstone of my practice as a psychotherapist, which began over 30 years ago, and my own personal work, is love; informed by Jungian, post Jungian, Buddhist and Suﬁ thought, Kashmir Shaivism, and the thinking and practices of W. B. Yeats. I ﬁrst met my Jungian and transpersonal mentor, Anne, in a dream in 1993. Dreamwork has been my modality since. My work is in recognizing the relationship to psyche, which is a transpersonal, eternal, objective reality, and reﬂecting on it internally and with the client. In our brief time together in this seminar I will invite you to reﬂect with me on our work with clients. Using some combination of art, movement, writing and/or dialogue, we will work with material from my development as a therapist and about my approach to depth work; and where appropriate and time permitting, material from your practice if you feel so moved.
Since the group will be limited to no more than 7 participants, a commitment to attend all 4 meetings is important.
