Zurich-trained Jungian analyst Dr. Bud Harris presents his two new books:
The Rage and the Shame: Facing Ourselves after the 2016 Election and Reclaiming the Heart of Our Democracy
(update: this book has been retitled – America Now: Facing Fear and Division to Reclaim the Heart of Our Democracy)
This book uses memoir, reflection, and literary exposition to track how we have, by means of denial, distraction, and economic exigency, brought ourselves to a crucial place of decision making: can we restore the highest and best ideals of our country? This book isn’t a rant about politics; rather, Dr. Harris guides us to speaking the truth to ourselves, understanding our frightening current reality, and facing our often denied sea of rage and fear.
An Open Letter to the Students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School: Do We Have the Courage to Face Our Failures and Prove We Value Our Children?
This short work is a challenge to face the reality behind our shock and heartbreak, to understand the core of what is happening in our culture, and how to take a major step forward together in caring for each other. Because of the importance and urgency of these issues Dr. Harris, along with others, have taken it on as a personal mission.
