Psychreative: “Body, Gender, and Psyche: Countermythology through Jungian Arts-Based Research”, with Marieke Cahill
June 15, 2023
7:00-9:00 pm (UK)
Cultural and individual identities are mythologies that we form as organizing principles in our societies and our lives. Yet for some of us, the dominant narratives or myths do not match our lived experiences. I will be discussing how countermythologies can function to claim our selves and our psyches through the lens of my experience as a neurodivergent and genderless artist, depth psychology scholar, and the parent of a gender expansive child.
