Earlier in this season on the Practice of Being Seen, Molly Merson, MFT, and I initiated a discussion around the “American collective unconscious”. It’s such a complex, layered subject. And though we covered quite a bit of ground in that hour of conversation, there still is so much more to explore. And so many questions to open up to possibility.
Through this exploration of our collective unprocessed traumas and the deep healing we need, we’re really talking about witnessing in a collective experience in which we are all implicated. How do we make space for more witnessing? We also discuss responsibility and resilience, post-traumatic growth, and the Parkland shooting victims and activists. We ask about the American Dream: Who is dreaming it and who is it for? We ask about the possibility of equality: Can it ever be so? When the urgency of fighting back and holding others accountable is so palpable and necessary, where is the space for hope, for dancing, for aliveness? Ultimately, we are asking: What is true? What do we know for sure?
