Ecotherapy image
Do you feel the disconnection in our society? Do you imagine a life with meaning beyond consumerism and "the rat race?" Do you drive by a place that you once held as safe, beautiful, or sacred and grieve that it has been destroyed by urban sprawl? With the constant barrage of media informing us about mass extinctions, climate change, and the continuous threat of catastrophe, it is a wonder any of us can get out of bed in the morning. There is only so much eco-grief we can deal with until we shut down. Unfortunately, shutting down prevents us from finding and strengthening true connections with others and making positive changes in our own lives. As a part of an Ecotherapy individual session or group, we explore and strengthen our connections to nature, to each other, and re-connect with ourselves. We can create resilience and find our most authentic way of being. All humans share a history in which our ancestors were connected to Spirit and held their natural environment as sacred. Although Western culture has forgotten this, we can remember our sacred and authentic connection to the natural world.
