6/5/15—Presentation: "Ecostalgia: Storienting the Displaced Psyche" by Bonnie Bright, at the Conference—Seizing an Alternative: Toward an Ecological Civilization, Pomona, CA. Some detailsin this press release from Pacifica Graduate Institute Alumni Association
Synopsis: The ecological and environmental destruction of homeplaces is increasingly resulting in a tremendous displacement of both individuals and communities, echoing the profound displacement that has occurred in the modern western psyche as it perceives itself ever more separate from nature. Our modern transient mindset, lacking rootedness and connection to place, has left us disoriented and struggling to make meaning, thus engendering ecostalgia, the profound longing for a spiritual homeplace that can sustain us. This loss of soul can be mitigated through the power of myth and story which allows us to ritually enter into a realm of engagement and understanding of both the planetary and personal crises we all face, orienting us toward home.
