"You are the universe in ecstatic motion" - Rumi
Humanity and the natural world are bound together in a sometimes harmonious, sometimes precarious, relationship. Just as we are shaped by our surroundings: our planet is affected by the way we live. Ecopsychology explores this interrelationship, recognizing the earth as the source and context of life.
All too frequently, we humans opt to fit a large and complex world into a narrow worldview. We inevitably struggle to comprehend the world in all its fullness. Inconvenient questions as to our dependence on the interrelationships that support all life on this planet tend to get left out of conventional narratives. Like a shattered mirror, the disorientating and distracting facets of urban life have fragmented our experience of the world we live in.
Ecopsychology embraces a psychology that serves all life. Looking beyond our human-centredness, it raises awareness of the deep and subtle communion between human and other-than-human consciousness.
