I help my service users to use photography, as a tool in which to view the world, and at times of emotional distress, which is recognized as recreational. A strand of Dance Movement Therapy named Authentic Movement by its creator, Mary Starks Whitehouse, was developed after several years of undergoing jungian analysis, through applying -and slightly adapting- Jung's techniques of Active Imagination to movement. and so with these jungian techniques, I started MY LIFE,S JOURNEY..

    ON.. CARL JUNG

    Contrary to some sources,[p8] { Scottie press }[misremembered thoughts ]{:June 2002:}.. Jung did not visit Liverpool but recorded a dream in which he had, and of which he wrote "Liverpool is the pool of life, it makes to live." As a result a statute of Jung was erected in Mathew Street in 1987, but being made of bronze, was stolen and scrapped and replaced by a more durable plastic version in 1993.
    A bit off thread Jacky,but do you remember the dolphin,in the fridge, a bit further up the street? when you opened the door,a light came on. ( an "Ocean" O'Halligan connection!)
