TW: Christianity, occult mentions.

One of the forefathers of modern psychology was quite likely plural. By relating Carl Jung's experiences in the Liber Novus and the Black Books to our own journals of the past and present we discovered that many plurals already have a natural but often overlooked tool in our inner worlds to help ourselves recover from complex trauma.



Obscura came to know herselves at a fairly young age via spiritualist practices that continued to develop through her teenage years, but that understanding truly blossomed after fae were able to finally affirm her gender(s). Obscura aims to empower plurals by providing insight into plural existence outside the medical model and countering those narratives in psychology and medicine that are used to invalidate and dismiss us all. She has degrees in Philosophy and Physics but now uses those as a basis to engage with Philosophy of Mind and Psychology, as well as with Cognitive Science more broadly. Obscura is currently waiting with bated breath to see whether the paper on Neurodiversity for which she is a contributor is published. She also holds regular meetups both locally and with The Plural Association that provide a space for plurals to be themselves and develop their own selves-understanding.
