Psychologist and researcher Dr. Mark Schroll joins Dr. MacDowell for a rich discussion on the history and current direction of the field of ecopsychology (which may be roughly defined as a psychological framework that enables deep exploration of our relatedness to the nonhuman world and each other in the hopes of fostering a healthier tomorrow). Widely published, Dr. Schroll has been a critical figure in clarifying what ecopsychology is and ensuring that it remains historically and philosophically situated to be able to accurately frame important research questions and possible interventions to address the global ecological crisis we face.
Connecting with nature can lead you to your spiritual self more quickly than meditation. How to connect with nature can be as elaborate as a two week trek in the wilderness or as simple as walking through a park. If you are homebound possibly move a chair to your back porch and move outside, close your eyes and listen to what nature has to say. Even if you live in a busy metropolitan region connecting with the outside air and sky is brilliant for your spirit.
According to World Forum Foundation.org:
Children develop unfounded fears of the natrual enviroment when they have little contact
TV & other media screen time has reduced the amount of time children spend outdoors
Too much time indoors can lead to vitamin D deficiencies, which can lead torisk factors for rickets, cardiovascular diseases, and or cancer/autoimmune issues
Benefits to Nature connections:
Nature time elicits great observation and creativity skills
Time spent in nature with nurturing adults helps children develop stronger learning skills
The earlier the time spent in nature, observing,playing etc helps children develop lifelong learning skills and understandings about the world in which they live
Time in nature helps reduce stress and the impact stress has on both children and adults
Helps aleviate Mental Health imbalances
It increases positive feelings for others
It increases coordinating agility skills
Look at the climate change debate and those who think it is a fallacy....how much time did they spend in nature as a child???

Suzanne Marcus Fletcher interviews Joyce Korschgen, Executive Director of The Center At Heron Hill. The Center at Heron Hill is a nature-based therapy and education program utilizing the principles of ecopsychology and equine-assisted growth and learning. These exciting modalities are proven to be a great addition to more classic treatment practices in that they enhance and augment a client's innate need for connection and relationships with the outside world, especially with nature. At Heron Hill we offer clients the opportunity to utilize equine-assisted psychotherapy and education, horticultural therapy, primitive earth skills, and numerous other nature based experiences, initiatives, and discussions. For example, groups engage in fire making, shelter building, plant identification, and archery to shape a treatment plan that supplements existing treatment. Heron Hill's team of counselors and adventure specialists embody a wide spectrum of experiences and training. Join us for the conversation, Monday, April 28th, at 1:00 PM PST on The Body Politic Radio.

A 13th generation Diiyin (HolyOne), Maria began her training at the heels of her grandfather, Quero Apache poet and snake clan priest, Juan Ten Bears Yraceburu. Following an extensive apprenticeship under his guidance, she also was tutored by Matthew King of the Lakota, Phillip Cassadore of the Apache, Buffalo Jim of the Seminole, and Rolling Thunder of the Cherokee/Shoshone.
During college she worked with her advisor Meredith Kane in merging the native healing rites she had learned, with clinical psychology, for the healing of women who had been sexually abused as children. This merger has unfolded to become what is now known as Applied Ecopsychology and is practiced throughout the world.
Maria is founder of FollowingAncestors, and it's non profit partner EarthWisdom. Both organizations work deligently to present ways for individuals to heal and reconnect with the forces of nature and spirit. Her articles have been published in over 25 different countries, and her books Legends and Prophecies of the Quero Apache (Bear & Co, 2002) and Prayers and Meditations of the Quero Apache (Bear & Co, 2004) introduce us to the fine and powerful traditional teachings that speak of these times of evolution.
Maria can speak with authority on these subjects... she grew up in them, and lives them daily. "My uncles, my forefathers, have said, 'This is the way it is done. Keep it up. Teach others that come, so that they will carry this forward. When you have that connection in your heart it will always carry forward." - from Legends and Prophecies of the Quero Apache Natural Health: Lessons from the wheel of life: bridging the gap

Bonnie Bright speaks with Dr. Craig Chalquist about Terrapsychology, Encyclopedia Sophia, and"Earthrise" as a mythic image a la Joseph Campbell.
Craig Chalquist has walked a lot of the landscape of depth psychology since he first coined the term "terrapsychology" nearly a decade ago. Here Craig speaks about how "patterns, shapes, features and motifs at play in the nonhuman world scupt our ideas, our habits, our relationships, culture, and sense of self" a quote from Rebearths: Conversations with a World Ensouled (p. 6), the June selection for the Depth Psychology Alliance online book club.
Craig Chalquist Ph.D. is the author of 8 books and editor of 2 anthologies, including Rebearths: Conversations with a World Ensouled, the June selection for the Depth Psychology Alliance online book club. Currently a core faculty member in East-West Psychology at the California Institute of Integral Studies, Dr. Chalquist has also taught at John F. Kennedy University, Antioch University, Prescott College, and Pacifica Graduate Institute among others.
Craig's comprehensive work in the field(s) of depth psychology, ecopsychology, and mythology have given rise to a number of groundbreaking unique programs including Encyclopedia Sophia, an online repository for culture mentors, and Earthrise--a vision for a mythic image for our time.
