Borderland Consciousness:

Treatment of Trauma and Re-Languaging Western Civilization’s  Relationship to Nature, in the Crisis of Climate Change

"We see and hear what we are open to noticing."

The Garden of Eden myth, the foundational myth of Western civilization, details a split psyche. We will explore the Western psyche’s attempt to heal personal and collective trauma through a reconnection with “the psyche left behind,” i.e. a psyche at one with Nature pre the Expulsion. The overspecialization of the Western ego construct threatens the very survival of our species. The most dramatic and threatening symptom of that over-specialization is our Logos language itself. Language is a creation of culture and forms culture. The Navajo culture and its religious and healing practices will be explored as a way of re-languaging Western civilization’s relationship to Nature in the face of Global Climate Change.

Our Presenter:              

Jerome S. Bernstein, M.A.P.C., NCPsyA, is a Clinical Psychologist and Jungian Analyst in private practice in Santa Fe, NM.  He is past-President of the C.G. Jung Institute of Santa Fe, where he is Senior Faculty and supervisor, and founding President of the Jungian Analysts of Washington, D.C. Association.  In 2005 he published Living in the Borderland: The Evolution of Consciousness and the Challenge of Healing Trauma (Routledge) explaining his theory of Borderland consciousness, a consciousness resulting from the Western psyche being pushed to reconnect with Nature and the Indigenous psyche.  The impact of trauma, individually and collectively, is central in this process.  Jerome Bernstein lectures internationally on these topics and also led the first seminar (4 days) between Jungian Analysts and psychotherapists and a Navajo medicine man and a Navajo cultural translator on the Navajo Reservation (2011) which was internationally attended.  He has written and lectured on numerous articles on these and on a wide range of clinical topics and on international conflict.
