OVERVIEW

An insight into practical and theoretical aspects of ecopsychology

Fundamental to ecopsychology is acknowledgement of the reciprocal relationship between humans and the natural world around us. From an ecopsychological perspective we are a part of nature.

One aspect of the project of ecopsychology is the restoration of the disconnect between humans and nature.

The need for such awareness, and for practices which facilitate this reconnection has perhaps never been greater. 

Felt experiential understanding of our psychological and ecological interdependence with nature brings about numerous benefits. Research has demonstrated significant enhanced health and well-being as a consequence of mindful time spent in natural places. Importantly, such experiences can also acts as catalysts for more ecologically harmonious lifestyles.

This workshop provides you with a deeper understanding of the project of ecopsychology.

We will explore our human connection to the web of life, and experience how an ecological identity connects us with a greater sense of wellness and belonging with human and other-than-human nature.
