Forgiving a person or collective for the trauma(s) inflicted on us, when we know the responsible party or group, is a daunting psychological task. Traumas that are unhealed can lead to complexes that define us permanently as “victims”; yet, in that complex, victim and perpetrator are two sides of the same coin. Work with these inner opposites, which can entail forgiving ourselves with our own fantasies of reprisal and revenge, can be necessary for the soul, but arduous to undertake and sustain. Participants are invited to share their own experiences of this project and its difficulties. The persons in need of forgiveness—including ourselves, according to Jung—may be family members, or they may be experienced as part of a collective ethnic, professional, political, or national group.
Guil Dudley, PhD, is a Jungian analyst and a member of the Santa Fe Institute of Jungian Analysts, where he is active as a panelist on the Institute’s public programs. He teaches in the Advanced Students Program and in the Institute’s Analytic Training Program. Guil practices in both the Albuquerque and Santa Fe areas. He is the author of two books and contributor to a third. He is completing a memoir that deals in part with generational patterns of early trauma and a compensatory “will to power” (Nietzsche’s term), and persona enhancement among successful corporate executives, investors, and others in the country’s top one percent of income earners.
