We seem to be finding more language to express ourselves regarding our collective suffering, questions, and ambivalence regarding raciality.  Dreams, the voice of our creative Psyche, often takes us to that place where it is easier to express ourselves, even regarding the often difficult topic of race, racism and racial relations. Dreaming in Color:  Race in the Unconscious, provides a space for integration of ego experiences of racial anxiety--both individual and collective, with the archetypal call from the unconscious for healing. 

We will spend time discussing our cultural/ethnic/racial dreams and re-visiting, finding a less- shadowed path to them through creative writing.  The mirroring of dreams and writing can provide us with walking Psyche's bridge between these two depthful interior spaces.  We might discover some things we never knew we had lost.

Dr. Fanny Brewster, Ph.D., M.F.A., is a Jungian analyst and Professor at Pacifica Graduate Institute in the Integrative Therapy and Healing Practices Department. She is the author of African Americans and Jungian Psychology: Leaving the Shadows, Archetypal Grief: Slavery’s Legacy of Intergenerational Child Loss, and The Racial Complex: A Jungian Perspective on Culture and Race. Dr. Brewster is an international lecturer and workshop presenter on Jungian related topics, African American Culture and Creativity. She is a faculty member at the New York C.G. Jung Foundation and is a member analyst with the Philadelphia Association of Jungian Analysts.
