As we move further into the 21st century it becomes possible to reflect more on 19th and 20th century psychological theories. One such theoretical writing was C.G. Jung’s A Review of the Complex Theory.  This theory of a “color” complex was developed by Jung in regard to individuals of Africanist ancestry.  As Americans we live with the collective cultural trauma of racism that has been a part of our society since slavery. This intergenerational trauma caused by the racial complex continues to be constellated on an individual as well as a collective level.

The Historical and Contemporary Shadow of Our Collective Grief: Witnessing, Listening and Soul

A two (2) event series with Dr. Fanny Brewster and Joanna Walling, sponsored by PGIA 

August 2, 2020 & September 13, 2020

We welcome you to join in a grief support group to bear witness to our collective grief during this time of great change for our country. The United States has a long history of individual and systemic racial and cultural oppression and brutality against “other” non-dominant cultures. The scarring of this collective past leaves each of us with wounds of varying size, color, shape, and depth, wounds that need not be felt and carried alone.
