Centre for Existential Practice (CEP)

CLAIMING OUR COMPLEXITY: ambiguity in emotion, experience, values, identity and relationships

Online via zoom

Presenter: Sasha van Deurzen-Smith

In a world that prioritises simplistic and clear-cut categorisations, acknowledging ambiguity can be exceptionally difficult. Yet Sasha will posit that nuance can communicate so much more about the intricacies of being human; that emotion, beliefs, values, identity, experiences and relationships all offer a rich and complex tapestry. They will ask what it would mean for us to embrace that tapestry more readily, then how we might we move from simplifying the self and others to claiming our complexity. Finally they will ask what it is that stops us from doing so.
