Wintergreen Studios, a year-round education and retreat centre in the Frontenac Arch Biosphere Reserve in Southeastern Ontario, is presenting a talk with Perth-based psychotherapist and wilderness guide, Andy Fisher. As noted on the Wintergreen website:
In this talk, followed by an engaging question-and-answer session, Andy Fisher will reveal how ecopsychology is about being fully alive in a living world. It is a new field that both celebrates the healing power of reconnecting with nature and aims to overcome the modern alienation from nature at the core of the ecological crisis. Radical ecopsychology is ecopsychology in its most challenging form. As developed by Andy, it regards ecopsychology as a radical transformation of psychology, insisting on a thorough rethinking of the theory, practice, and self-image of psychology in light of an ecological view of reality. If we need to build an ecological society, then what would remain of “psychology” in such a society? What would it look like in practice? And how can we get going with it now?
