Welcome to my website

I have created it as a way for people to find out about my work in ecopsychology, including the vision fasting work that I lead with my wife Jill Dunkley. There is also a page on my psychotherapy services.

Ecopsychology places all psychological and spiritual matters within the context of our membership in the natural world. It is a psychology that says "we too are nature." It is also a kind of psychological politics dedicated to building an ecological society--a society that serves life and maintains the ecological integrity of the earth. My own work in ecopsychology has focused on the specific challenges and unique opportunities presented by this new field.

For those interested in studying ecopsychology with me, I teach an annual course at the University of Vermont, and can tailor a course for individuals who wish to study long-distance (see the "Teaching" heading on the Ecopsychology page).

I will also be teaching a course at Schumacher College in England this fall, from November 10-14. Bill McKibben, founder of 350.org, has this to say about Schumacher College: "As we try to figure out what on earth we're going to do with this uravelling planet, it's become a thinktank for hope, a battery for positive vision!" Details about the course can be found here.
