Saturday July 23rd – 10am-5pm
With Jane Sanders & Collette Barnard

Western psychology has virtually ignored our relationship to the natural world. Our connection to the source of life does not figure in its definition of mental health, nor is our destruction of our life-support system included in its list of pathologies” Joanna Macy

We ask what needs to happen to change this story.therapists in wood

This day is a call both to people who are already practicing therapists, trainees and anyone who would like to work outside with people.  We will be working (weather permitting) outside in a local woodland walking distance from Glastonbury High St.

On this day you can expect to

• Slow down and find time to connect with yourself and the land
• Incorporating the symbols of nature as a mirror of our inner journey
• Experience a skills practice working outside
• Explore using creativity & nature as healer

One Response to Eco-psychology – Rewilding Therapy

  1. Absolutely. I am loving the increase in press coverage on this subject. My husband and I have been creating Nature Immersion Films for those who are unable to connect with nature directly due to disability, illness, time, distance, cost and fear. There are millions of people who simply can’t or won’t make the bond, so to speak, and millions of others who don’t even know how incredibly beneficial nature immersion is for our physical, mental and spiritual health. So, yay for getting the word out there, and getting the people out there!
