Contemplative Ecopsychology and The Great Work

Dr. Will W. Adams, Duquesne University

Our estrangement from the rest nature clearly wreaks devastation on Earth’s natural community, and also generates immense psychological, social, and spiritual distress for humankind. The ecological crisis we are facing – or not – has emerged from a deeply rooted crisis of consciousness and culture. When we learn ways to interrupt the momentum of our habitual existence by way of embodied-contemplative-relational exploration, we may transform ego-centered alienation into eco-centered intimacy, and thereby participate with greater awareness and love in nature’s wild and holy fellowship of being.

Join us for an illuminating weekend with Berry Forum facilitator Dr. Danny Martin, and noted psychotherapist and ecological psychologist Will W. Adams. Dr. Adams will initiate our conversation on Friday evening and help us carry our explorations further in an experiential workshop and walk-about at Pound Ridge Reservation in Cross River, New York, on Saturday. This Forum aspires to foster ways of living more contemplatively in, with, and as the shared Earth community — for the well-being of all our relations, both human and otherwise.
