My mother went back to school at the age of 48 and got her masters in Psychology. She had MFCC license number 40. She studied with Carl Jung. She passed away in January 2003 at the age of 96. Until her death she was a dream therapist and held dream workshops and did individual therapy.Fran and Gertrude

We were at a workshop in the desert in 1968 with Ira Progoff, who was the author of The Journal. That’s when she shared the story of how the Delf was born with me. Then the story tells the rest.

I went back to school in my late 40’s to San Jose State with a degree in social services and gerontology. I owned and managed a business in Santa Clara County for 28 years called Crossroads Staffing. We had 8 offices in the Bay Area. I did career counseling.

After retirement in 1997 I moved to Santa Cruz where I sing, write and watch dolphins frolic from my window. I have 3 children, 10 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren.
