Re-awakening the Green Man

Re-awakening the Green Man | ecopsychology | Scoop.it

The degradation of our environment is accelerating beyond the point of our being able to repair it. The problems are many and complex—from the destruction of our forests, to the dying off of our fish. Our impure air and water is causing worldwide increases in chronic diseases including severe challenge to our immune systems.

 

Most threatening of all, climate change may raise temperatures and cause extreme weather conditions for thousands of years. Scientists and experts such as Al Gore can show us charts of what is happening, but the facts and figures don’t reach into the depth of our heart and motivate us to change. Joanna Macy, author and deep ecologist says, “We need to love the world in order to save it.” Using our intellect in this area is not enough; we need to...

Ecopsychology 101: James Hillman and the pain of community loss | The Smirking Chimp

Ecopsychology 101: James Hillman and the pain of community loss | The Smirking Chimp | ecopsychology | Scoop.it

There is in fact a growing branch of psychology that deals with the impact of the natural environment on the human mind and body — ecopsychology.

Ecopsychology, as propounded by depth psychologist James Hillman seeks to redefine the goals of psychology by paying heed to the health of one's environment just as one would the pathology of one's family.

As Hillman wrote in the foreword to Ecopsychology: Restoring the Earth, Healing the Mind, "Psychology, so dedicated to awakening human consciousness, needs to wake itself up to one of the most ancient human truths: we cannot be studied or cured apart from the planet."

Ecopsychology is on the level — the community level, that is. That's where and how Hillman has felt...

Transpersonal Dimensions of Ecopsychology: Nature, Nonduality, and Spiritual Practice

Transpersonal Dimensions of Ecopsychology: Nature, Nonduality, and Spiritual Practice | ecopsychology | Scoop.it

Many have recognized transpersonal experiences in natural settings and found qualities of peace, joy, love, support, inspiration, and communion with the natural world that are exemplars of the spiritual quest. Similarly, some people in both the psychological and the environmental action communities sense that ecopsychology can be a path to the spiritual as well as a necessary element in sustainable environmental work and effective psychotherapy.

 

Spirituality has been part of the deep ecology and ecopsychology literatures from their beginning, though not without hesitation. For the most part, however, the transpersonal elements of ecopsychology have not been clearly articulated, nor have they led to the realization of ecopsychology as a basis for spiritual practice.

 

In this article, I explore the connection between ecopsychology and transpersonal psychology, including some relevant research findings. Since the central issue for this connection is the notion of nonduality, I offer a discussion of nonduality and its relation to ecopsychology. Finally, I touch on the value of a spiritual path in which nature plays a prominent role. I do not intend this to be a thorough review of either transpersonal psychology or ecopsychology, but rather...(Click the title to continue)
