Dyane Sherwood, PhD has felt welcomed by the members of the Chicago Institute, after moving to the midwest from the San Francisco area in 2010. She trained at the C. G. Jung Institute of San Francisco, where she served on the Board, was Editor of Jung Journal: Culture & Psyche, and a frequent teacher for the analytic candidates and in public programs. She co-authored a book (with the late analyst Joseph L. Henderson) relating a series of alchemical illuminations to the process of depth transformation, Transformation of the Psyche: The Symbolic Alchemy of the Splendor solis (2003). She has also published on a wide range of topics, including the neurobiology of affective communication, the Lakota vision quest, and the influence of shamanism on the art of Wassily Kandinsky. She serves as a member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Analytical Psychology. Her current interests include the integration of active imagination into analytic practice and alchemical images as representations of embodied awareness.
