Our Ecological Self:
Restoring the Bond between Inner and Outer Nature
November 18, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pmPrepaid Cost: $45 – $60
Presented by Shanti Mayberry, HHP, PhD
Nature is a supreme teacher if you know how to follow Her -C.G. Jung
Recent studies suggest that reconnecting to nature can increase one’s sense of vitality, promote a sense of healing, provide inspiration, stimulate self- awareness, decrease pain and stress, support the individuation process and contribute to the resolution of trauma. In many ways Jung understood this intuitively, as he recognized that restoring the broken bond between humans and nature is imperative to both our survival and our sanity. In this workshop we will discuss the evolutionary intersection of ecological psychology with Jung’s work, and learn practices which can facilitate our connection to what Jung called our ‘natural’ or ‘primordial’ being.
- Describe recent research findings which demonstrate how connecting to nature can help decrease pain and stress and promote psychological well-being
- Describe what is meant by the term ‘ecopsychology’ and its relationship to current psychological practice
- Give an example of a healing practice that can be taught to patients who are recovering from trauma
