Event description

Description

Afflictions and dismemberments come in a myriad of forms. At times bodily wounds, dismemberments, markings and scarrings imprint us with suffering and pain, both in the events and in their memories. At other times we may feel morally wounded, especially when our lives become dissonant, at odds with the myth we are living and the challenges every day living may impose on us. Moral wounding can also happen to a nation as well as to an individual and some have expressed that this is what they feel when they turn on the news. So we will explore both of these realms with an eye to voicing our own territories of woundedness.
