    Hi Judith,

    Thanks for the question you posted. I’m in the process of putting together the 4th and 5th Jungian CEU packages. The Motherline will be going into one or the other within the next few months.

    Wow, great podcast! I found myself actually having difficulty concentrating, because each point of the show would be taking me down different trains of thought.

    As a male with pretty much zero [conscious] paternal instinct (while I desire marriage, I have no urge or desire for children); this episode really drew out many of the feelings and experiences my Anima has been drawing out, which I can only describe as an introduction to the mysteries of nature which can’t really be described in rational, non-paradoxical terms.

    I dare say that my paternal instincts are channelled into other areas, especially creative endeavours in writing and music. As for maternal instincts, they’re always something that confused me as someone looking in from the outside, so this is fascinating from a bloke’s perspective!

    Timing is really good with this episode, as a single mother (a fellow ECU psych student) and I are in the middle of an email conversation about maternity and male-and-female roles, so I will share this episode for sure.

    Oh, and I’ve always wanted to hear you interviewed, Dr. Dave, so I’ll check out that podcast!
