About Safron


About Safron


I have spent my life steeped in literature, religion and mythology, fields in which I hold my degrees. 

My studies in Jungian and Archetypal psychology, myth and alchemy inform my astrological work.  

I am an associate core faculty member at Pacifica Graduate Institute in the Depth Psychology Jungian and Archetypal Studies program where I teach courses on mythology, symbolism, research and depth psychology. 

My writing and scholarly studies focus on archetypal psychology, astrology, goddess traditions, and women's studies. For my CV, visit this page

Formerly I was also the Curator of the Joseph Campbell, James Hillman, and Marija Gimbutas collections, among others, at Opus Archives & Research Center.
