Ecopsychology perceives humans as integral to and embedded in a living world.
In our not-so-distant past, human survival depended directly upon intuitive reciprocity with nature. Ecopsychology is rooted in this indigenous perspective but contends with modern climate change, fracking, radar-equipped fishing vessels, nuclear bombs, tight schedules, and the deification of the almighty dollar.
Modern challenges and temptations necessitate a post-modern ecological psychology.
I am an ecopsychologist. The context of my work is ecological belonging. The purpose of my work is to align with the power and integrity of nature. My work values the sobriety of being awake, honors the power of accountability, and uncovers the dignity of shame. How can we become post-modern indigenous people? This crucial inquiry is the heart and soul of my practice.
