Ecopsychology and Ecology

I facilitate, for a very low cost or for free, Workshops and Training on many topics related to ecopsychology, the Earth Charter, the psychology of ecology, and environmental activism.

I am working at promoting the Earth Charter through Earth Charter Cowichan.

My efforts to connect people with nature include volunteer work with the Cowichan Valley Naturalists Society and the Young Naturalists Club of the Cowichan Valley.  I also volunteer with the Cowichan Community Land Trust, the Land Trust Alliance of British Columbia, and other environmental organizations.

Here are some pieces I have written about ecopsychology, land stewardship, land trusts, the Earth Charter, and related topics.  Many of these articles are in HTML format for viewing with your browser and/or in PDF format for printing.  To read or print the PDF files, you need Adobe Acrobat viewerClick here to download a free copy.
