Safron Rossi 2019.jpg

Safron Rossi PhD is Associate Core Faculty at the Pacifica Graduate Institute near Santa Barbara, where she teaches courses on mythology and archetypal symbolism in depth psychology. Raised in a family of artists that read C.G. Jung and Joseph Campbell, she has spent her life steeped in literature, religion and mythology, fields in which she holds her degrees.  Her writing and scholarly studies focus on Greek mythology, archetypal psychology, the western astrological tradition, goddess traditions, and feminist studies.

Dr Rossi was the Director and Curator of the Opus Archives & Research Center which holds the manuscript collections and personal libraries of renowned scholars in the fields of mythology and depth psychology, including Joseph Campbell, the archaeologist Marija Gimbutas, and James Hillman.  She worked for periods of time with James Hillman at his home in Connecticut in the years before his death, helping him to sift through and gather up his lifetime of notes, ideas and research. 

Dr Rossi is editor of Joseph Campbell's Goddesses: Mysteries of the Feminine Divine (2013), co-editor of Jung on Astrology (Routledge 2017) and has published articles in Jungian and Archetypal journals and essay collections. She is currently working on a book on feminine triads in Greek mythology and the archetype of the Korai (Maidens–Virgins) in the psychology of women.
