SHELDON WILLIAMSON CULVER, M.Div., D. Div.
Sheldon Culver, M. Div., D. Div. is a Jungian Analyst with an active, soul-healing practice in St Louis, MO.
She is a graduate of Washington University and Eden Theological Seminary, both in St. Louis.
She is a Diplomate with the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts, graduating from this North American training program in 1996.
She is an active member of The Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts (IRSJA) and The International Association of Analytical Psychology (IAAP). She is a member and participant of the C.G. Jung Society of St. Louis, providing lectures and workshops.
Sheldon’s analytic work focuses on dreams and how they serve to guide soul’s journey. She is particularly interested in the specificity of dream images and the dynamics within the dream.
She has done extensive study on “home” and belonging, on difference and the process of individuation, on women’s spiritual and psychological journeys, and on “the Fool” as a compelling and liberating archetypal image. Since Jung’s Red Book was published in 2009, Sheldon has focused attention on this seminal work which is the key to understanding Jung and his sense of “soul” whose language is “image”. She has a deep love for poetry, classical music and fine arts.
Sheldon is also an ordained minister with the United Church of Christ, having served congregations and middle judicatory ministries in Missouri and Illinois since 1974. She is now retired from this realm of service.
Sheldon was born and raised in Massachusetts, one mile from Waldon Pond, and in the heart of “transcendental” New England. She credits the woods, fields and swamps of her childhood with the spiritual grounding of her life.
