Earth, Climate, Dreams: Depth Psychological Reflections in the Age of the Anthropocene

6-Week Symposium & Fundraiser for Depth Psychology Alliance
 Earth, Climate, Dreams: Depth Psychological Reflections
in the Age of the Anthropocene
Live Online Discussion Group Wednesdays, Starting January 19

Over time, humans in western cultures have undergone a profound restructuring of the psyche resulting in a traumatic sense of separation. In modern day, we face a growing set of challenges on ecological and social fronts. The era of what is now informally called the Anthropocene--a term referring to the significant impact of human activity on the planet- has arrived.

This 6-week symposium offers a multi-layered opportunity to engage the topic with peers from a depth psychological perspective, allowing deep reflection and thoughtful response, as well as real connection and interaction within the community. 

* 12 video depth dialogues
 * 2 of the 12 video depth dialogues released each week for viewing
 * 1 live online peer video discussion session each week
 * Online repository for sharing art, poetry, dreams or writing

I continue to be moved by your very reflective and relevant remarks on modernity, memory, and the "transient personality" that emerged in our conversation for this Symposium, Erel. We held the live online discussion about our interview together last night, and your presence was profoundly felt in the rich conversation. Thank you again for your tremendous work.
