Nor Hall (b. Eleanor L. Hall 1947). Hall is a post-Jungian psychotherapist and author. Her work focuses on archetypal studies, particularly gender issues and cultural mythology.


She has practiced archetypal psychology since 1972 while maintaining a career as a mythopoetic writer, independent lecturer, workshop leader, consultant, and theatre artist. Her work in recent years as a research dramaturg for Archipelago and content developer for new plays evolved out of participation in Pantheatre’s Myth & Theatre Festivals in France. Hall is a volunteer case consultant for the Center for Victims of Torture in Minneapolis, a Pacifica Graduate Institute adjunct faculty and thesis advisor, an advisor for the Ashlar Institute on trauma issues, an advisor for Spring: A Journal of Archetype and Culture, an advisor for Pantheatre, a member of the Walker Arts Center Producers’ Council and friend of Rain Taxi Review of books. In 2011 she was a featured guest at These Women!, a conference in Santa Barbara at the Institute for Cultural Change that was named after her book titled Those Women (1988, republished as Dreaming in Red in 2005).
