The Cohort is comprised of depth psychological and somatic researchers, practitioners, and scholars writing at the intersection of the mind, the body, and the spirit. We believe in the agency of the author as well as the pursuit of honed, polished writing and communication. We also believe that scholarly ideas have a greater capacity to bloom when given the opportunity for open dialogue and generous comradery during the stages of writing, editing, and review.
Vol. 1 No. 1 (2020): Exploring The Shadow
In Depth Psychology, we often discuss "the shadow," the part of our unconscious where we repress and disown the unsavory, abject aspects of our selves, as individuals and as a culture. Carl Jung and others following in the depth tradition recognize the potential, the "gold," in accessing, examining, and integrating our shadow with our conscious selves. Writers in this issue explore the shadow through dreamwork, ceremonial fasting, critical theory, American politics, romantic partnership, art, poetry, illness, and the symptomatic body. Engaging with the shadow can be hard but rewarding work. Please enjoy our inaugural issue, published on December 21st 2020, the Winter Solstice, where the night is long, and the presence and promise of shadow is felt.
