A Narrative of Love

Dr Joy DeGruy on Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome

In this A Narrative of Love conversation, Dr Joy DeGruy explores what it feels for black African Americans to negotiate the multiple challenges of living in a racist society, including internalised racism, the learned helplessness, and structural dehumanisation. Dr DeGruy also highlights key elements that can move the society towards healing, at both personal and collective levels.

More importantly, Dr DeGruy offers pathways that individuals, organisations, and governments can embark on to repair, rebuild and restructure our common habitat through partaking in the mutuality of shared humanness. Thus we can all Be the Healing.

A Narrative of Love Conversation Series

During Covid-19 pandemic, the world is plunged into perplexity. On a daily basis, the majority of people around the globe seem to experience some form of disorientation, be it economic uncertainty, social divisiveness, political turmoil, media manipulation, or ecological crisis. Whilst the sense of loss, the experience of alienation, and the feeling of hopelessness are spreading, the GHFP and partners, including the Spirit of Humanity Forum, the Fetzer Institute, have launched a project entitled A Narrative of Love. The project seeks to explore the power of love in practice that might invite humanity out of the current impasse.

Included in this project, is a series of conversations with thinkers, spiritual teachers and practitioners on how they see the significance of love in our personal and public lives. This is A Narrative of Love Conversation Series hosted by Dr Scherto Gill. These conversations are in preparation for the 5th Spirit of Humanity Forum scheduled to take place in June 2021, entitled “Towards a Loving World: Leadership and Governance for Well-Being”.
