EVENT REPORT - Bay Area Hive Meetup & Speaker Evening for Depth Psychology Alliance
On August 18, nearly 30 Depth Psychology Alliance members in the San Francisco area gathered for food, community, and a thoughtful presentation by Terrapsychologist Craig Chalquist, Ph.D.


On December 24, 1968, Apollo 8 astronauts took aphotograph that would change collective human consciousness forever. Why was this photo, "Earthrise," so important? In our meetup and speaker evening, Craig discussed ways in which the image of Earthrise showed us for the first time a planet without boundaries or divisions, and the beauty of the green and blue orb hanging in the sky, allowing us to imaging the possibilities. 


As mythologist Joseph Campbell explained, the only myth that is going to be worth thinking about in the immediate future is one that is talking about the planet, not the city, not these people but the planet, and everybody on it.

Craig has generously made his presentation available online! Click here to view it on YouTube -- or you can also download the PowerPoint or Keynote versions on Craig's website here.


All in all, we had a wonderful event and many of us left asking new questions about what we can each individually do--and do together--to change the myth we are living out in regards to our beautiful Earth.

"Each of us is a being in himself and a being in society, each of us needs to understand himself and understand others, take care of others and be taken care of himself."

~Haniel Long, Poet & Writer


In the month of October, with the only book of poems in the 2012 Depth Psychology Alliance Book Club, Paul Watsky will lead you on a contemplative journey that involves poetry, Jungian thought, and soul. Come comment or ask questions on these poems or poetry in general. Join the Book Club this month and enjoy "Telling the Difference."


"To quote Norman O. Brown quoting Euripedes, "God made an opening for the unexpected," and at long last we have what many of us have greatly desired: a collection of poems by Paul Watsky.


His is a singular voice in contemporary poetry, with a range that encompasses the wry, the mordant, the laugh-out-loud funny and the deeply moving, often within the same poem." -Charles Martin


Paul Watsky, Ph.D., author of the poetry collection "Telling The Difference" grew up in New York City and began writing poetry during high school. He now lives and works in San Francisco, where he earns his living as a Jungian analyst. He has published three chapbooks, cotranslated with Emiko Miyashita Santoka (Tokyo, PIE Books, 2006), and has poems in various journals.


Paul's new web site is currently being remodeled. To join Paul's mailing list, please send a request through the messaging system on Depth Psychology Alliance.
