“I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out,
I found, was really going in.” ––John Muir
In our ecotherapy sessions, I work with you to incorporate a deep and regular relationship with nature as part of your healing process. This will include a variety of different approaches, including time together outdoors, or nature prescriptions for you to explore on your own. More and more research is verifying what humans throughout history have known: nature has a healing capacity that soothes our body, eases our mind, and speaks to our soul. I work to help you foster and deepen your own healing relationship with nature and thus become whole again. In the process, I will support you and guide you toward the natural environment, so that your body and mind can heal.
As a part of the natural world, humans evolved in close proximity to the plants, animals, and landscapes that surrounded us. Over millennia we have gradually separated from nature, disconnecting from one of our greatest healers and teachers. Humans and nature are inextricably connected, but in our technology saturated world, it is easy to forget the importance of this relationship. We spend 90% of our time indoors, and 60% of that time on screens! The field of ecopsychology examines the relationship between humans and nature, helping to bring a healing awareness to the importance of this connection. Ecotherapy is an umbrella term for a variety of practices that are intended to help facilitate health and healing through a more conscious and active relationship with our earth.
As a part of my dedication to ecotherapy and restoring the vital connection between humans and their earth, I also facilitate ecotherapy workshops and retreats. Please sign-up for my email list, or contact me for more information about these.
