In her new book, THE RACIAL COMPLEX: A JUNGIAN PERSPECTIVE ON CULTURE AND RACE, Jungian analyst, author, and poet Fanny Brewster writes boldly about the racial complex we all carry, individually and as a culture.
C.G. Jung said that our psychological complexes are like devious paths that often lead us astray. As we encounter the constellation of racial complexes on both individual and collective levels we find ourselves seeking ways of healing.
In this special program with Dr. Brewster, twice before presenter at Oregon Friends of Jung, the conversation will focus on identifying features of the racial complex and how we can find deeper understanding towards psychological healing. Dr. Brewster will offer opening remarks and insights and then invite questions and conversation.
FANNY BREWSTER, PH.D, M.F.A., is a Jungian Analyst, poet and the author of African Americans and Jungian Psychology: Leaving the Shadows. Dr. Brewster is a Core Faculty member at Pacifica Graduate Institute and with the C.G. Jung Foundation of New York.
