A guest post by alumnae Stacey Shelby, Ph.D.
My first career was as a marketing and communications executive for 15 years prior to coming to Pacifica. When I enrolled, I was in the throes of a full-scale “midlife crisis,” which included being finished with my marketing career, but I was lost and bewildered about what I wanted next. I initially dipped my toe in at Pacifica by taking the Dream Tending intensive public course with Dr. Aizenstat, founder and then-president of Pacifica. During that time, I became enamored with Pacifica and was drawn to the MA/PhD Depth Psychology Program. I remained perplexed as to what might manifest after, but being at Pacifica felt like coming home – both to myself and to my tribe, that feeling was my compass.
