LECTURE: “The Racial Complex: Psyche’s Call for Engagement” by Fanny Brewster, Ph.D., MFA, Jungian Analyst
Psychological complexes, such as the Racial Complex, challenge us to not only think about them, but also to process them. According to Jung, they can be “fiendish” in their pursuit of getting us to interact with them. How might pursuit for engagement benefit us, individually and collectively?

About the event
FRIDAY NIGHT LECTURE
Psychological complexes, such as the Racial Complex, challenge us to not only think about them; but also to process them. According to Jung, they can be “fiendish” in their pursuit of getting us to interact with them. The racial complex presents a unique American problem both for individuals and within the Collective. This lecture hopes to give more understanding of the Racial Complex and its possibility for deepening psychological work within the individual as well as within our American Society.
