Far In Far Out: Russia – Collective trauma

Project leader: Anastasiia Orekhova

Project description

Anastasiia is devoted to grappling with the legacy of historic trauma in Russia, as it is present in so many families, and touches everyone’s lives. And how these dynamics, so rarely spoken about, are activated at this moment in history.

Anastasiia is designing an academic project as part of her post-graduate University studies, a vital contribution to the field of Psychology and Organisational Psychology. This academic work will explore dynamics of collective trauma and accountability, and how historic dynamics are replayed and how trauma affects our ability to feel and consequently to act to stop the circle of violence.

Anastasia completed CFOR’s Facilitation for Leaders training, and continues to hold a deep interest, and practice of exploring the interplay of inner work and worldwork, facilitating the collective dynamics we are all part of.

About Anastasiia

Anastasiia is a passionate life explorer who started her path researching chemical compounds, then focusing on the pharmaceutical market and now getting more and more engaged in exploring the human psyche and collective unconscious.

She holds a Master degree in Analytical Chemistry and now is on the path to a Master degree in Psychology.

Anastasiia has 15 + years Project Leader experience in strategic and operational management (country, region and multi-region scale) among cross-cultural and cross-functional teams; building business processes and structures from “zero” and managing significant changes.

On a personal level when her job satisfaction dramatically declined, her kids got a bit independent, her body developed chronic symptoms and her relationship patterns and the world issues became too obvious and painful to be ignored, she decided to accept it as an invitation to explore life even deeper.

Anastasiia senses her Life Myth as being alongside and serving as a guide on the path from darkness to light. And even if the darkness might not become lighter, anxiety and fear of it might disappear and fresh winds of change will come.
