Betty M. Smith has taught in the Analyst Training Program of the C. G. Jung Institute of Los Angeles and the Pacifica Graduate Institute on the Island of Crete.  She has lectured extensively in the United States, Portugal and Greece. She is also the founder-director of Poiesis, which for thirty years has offered seminars in a reflective mode engaging a Jungian perspective through her written dialogues.

Using a form that is similar to active imagination as developed by Carl Jung, in Conversations in South Pasture the narratives proceed through conversations between principal figures of the story.  With a faithful ear to the archetypal echoes in life’s events, the dialogues evoke the timeless landscape of the psyche in present time.

Letters to the publishers:

Congratulations on the publication of Red Berry’s edition of Conversations in South Pasture.  I just received my copy, and I was SO pleased to see what a beautiful volume it is.  The visuals are very inviting; I cannot wait to have tea with our friends in the pasture!...the text—what I’ve read so far—is beautifully wrought, which I suspect the publishers had a hand in as much as the author and editors.  Great job! 
~ Lynda Boyd-Cornell

A fine stratification of classical philosophy, Depth Psychology and Existential thought lies under the rich turf of South Pasture.  By turns profound and practical,
Conversations animates the archetypal realm of psyche with warmth, humor and a unique intelligence.  Goat, Cow and friends are originals, yet recognizable; somewhere they belong to us.  Those who know Betty Smith’s singular work with Greek myth and Jungian approach will discover another dimension of her intellect and imagination in this lovely volume.
