An Ecopsychological Exploration of Pan (demic)


The Covid-19 zoonotic virus is as ecological as it is psychological in its communal effect. It pertains to Pan, the god of wilderness and a source of psychic fear, which can attack, strike, and divide. We cannot always prevent or stop viral infection any more than psychic infection; both are afflictive. I hope to offer participants a few ecological and psychological tools for how to reconfigure the "frightener," the unseen but contagious panic into a grounded relationship with uncertainty and unknowns inherent in a shared world. Led by Lori Pye, VGI President.
