Culture Collapse Disorder
Over time, humans belonging to western cultures have undergone a profound restructuring of the psyche resulting in a traumatic sense of separation. Culture Collapse Disorder relates to a disturbing phenomenon in the natural world, Colony Collapse Disorder, where beehives collapse because the bees become separated from the hive and can no longer navigate home. Culture Collapse Disorder is a term I use to describe how the wounded relationship between culture and nature has affected our modern mindset, contributing to disorientation, despair, and the collective loss of connection to an archetypal sense of “home.”
