Asclepius [as-klee'pi-us] (Aesculapius) or Asklepios, "cut up," or "turn round and round"(?)
The son of Apollo and Coronis, he was god of medicine and healing, but was raised by the centaur Chiron, who taught him medicine (Pindar, Pythian Odes 3.5-7). He could restore the dead to life, for which offense Zeus killed him with a thunderbolt (Pindar, Pythian Odes 3.54-58; Euripides, Alcestis 3-6; Apollodorus 3.10.4; Hyginus, Fabulae 49; Diodorus Siculus 4.71.2-3). The most famous temple of Asclepius was at Epidaurus. His children included Machaon, Podalirius (Diodorus Siculus 4.71.4), Hygeia (Health), and Panacea (Cure-all). Family Tree 21.

John Herbert – ASD Dream Time – Dreaming in Cyberspace
Reflections on Online Dream Groups John W. Herbert, Ph. D.
The advent of global communication via the Internet has brought many changes to the extent to which information can be shared, and it has also changed our sense of community. We are no longer bound by geographical constraints but are linked by communal interests. Electronic communication provides us with many ways with which to share these various interests, and dreamwork has been one area that has proven to be very suitable for this emerging medium.

Jung Society of Atlanta – Hermes and the Creation of Space
Hermes and the Creation of Space
by Murray Stein
The Greek God
Who was Hermes? The great 19th century German mythographer, W.H.Roscher, identified Hermes as the wind, subsuming under this basic identity all of his other roles and attributes – Hermes as servant and messenger of the sky god Zeus, Hermes as swift and winged, Hermes as thief and bandit, Hermes as inventor of the pipes and lyre, Hermes as guide of souls and as god of dreams and sleep, Hermes as promoter of fertility among plants and animals and as patron of health, Hermes as god of good fortune, Hermes as patron of traffic and business activities on water and land. Ingeniously, Roscher tied all of these functions to the primitive perception of a wind god. Hermes is like the wind. We can hear Shelley’s “Ode to the West Wind” as a moving hymn to this god:
O wild West Wind, thou breath of Autumn’s being,
Thou, from whose unseen presence the leaves dead
Are driven, like ghosts from an enchanter fleeing…

Short Intro Archetypal psychology – Stanley Richards
To have any sense of the depths of the psyche is to grasp how little one knows about oneself. To feel this one must have glimpsed the depths. Archetypal psychology, following Carl Jung, begins with the Socratic grasp of one’s ignorance, not just as an intellectual admission, but as truly standing in awe before the unfathomable caverns of the soul.
Dear reader, do not surf on by. Linger a while! As in life, sometimes it is good to pause where one has landed.

Wolfgang Giegerich: The Soul’s Logical Life
Towards a Rigorous Notion of Psychology
A preface here and link to where the book can be bought, Amazon seem to be sold out. Here us the amazon blurb:
C.G. Jung’s psychology was based on an authentic notion of soul, but this notion was only intuitive, implicit, not conceptually worked out. His followers forfeit his heritage, often turning psychology either into pop psychology or into a scientific, clinical enterprise. It is the merit of James Hillman’s archetypal psychology to have brought back the question of soul to psychology. But as ‘imaginal’ psychology it cannot truly overcome psychology’s positivistic, personalistic bias that it set out to overcome. Its “Gods” can be shown to be virtual-reality type gods because it avoids the question of Truth. Through what logically is the movement of an “absolute-negative interiorization”, alchemically a “fermenting corruption”, and mythologically a Dionysian dismemberment, one has to go beyond the imaginal to a notion of soul as logical life, logical movement. Only then can psychology be freed from its positivism and cease being a subdivision of anthropology, and can the notion of soul be logically released from its attachment to the notion of the human being.
Archetypal Psychology Home
Welcome… What is now known as the school of ‘archetypal psychology’ was founded by James Hillman with a number of other Jungians in Zurich in the late 1960′s and early 1970′s. The school arose in reaction against what they regarded as unnecessarily metaphysical assumptions in Jung and the complacent, rote application of Jungian tenets. Hillman prefers to regard archetypal psychology not as a ‘school’ but as a ‘direction’ or an ‘approach’.
Archetypal psychology is a post-Jungian psychology, a critical elaboration of Jungian theory and practice after Jung.
