church in louisiana

My respect for the power of the collective unconscious to influence the individual negatively or positively began in childhood experiences in the 1950s highly charged archetypal energy fields of the Pentecostal and Charismatic churches of the Gulf South.  


As a sensitive child with a mystical bent and a love of Nature, when not in church, my entertainment consisted mostly of swimming and fishing in the many creeks, bayous, and rivers that eventually conflate with the mighty Mississippi at the delta near the Gulf of Mexico.   


These early lived experiences of nature and religion informed the peculiar unconscious patterns meandering like rivers through my psyche until over time they forged a riverbed that imperceptibly changed the course of my life subverting my plans in favor of seeking what Carl Jung called the greater wisdom.  


Inevitably, curiosity and imagination led me to leave full time corporate work in favor of a midlife career change involving graduate school, internship, and ongoing training with leaders in the depth psychologies, archetypal pattern recognition, and religious studies.
