Stay in the know about new episodes and updates.
Welcome to EcoChat, the online radio program dedicated to helping each of us lives our lives to our fullest potential within the rich relational contexts and possibilities of our human and nonhuman relations. Join our host, Dr. Kate MacDowell, for something new to inspire, heal, and change your life and the world around you! Come to recognize the spiritual richness of a life lived in connection to the wild and cultured world around you: From the practical of improving health to the esoteric of the healing possibilities of diverse religious frameworks; to the challenging and controversial of re-examining political and social ideas, to the inspirational of encountering the diversity and richness of human and nonhuman diversity. EcoChat seeks to engage, heal, and inspire. Due to technical issues with the Blog component of this site, please see Dr. MacDowell's personal web page for a link to radio-content blogs! We are officially moving to Thursday nights at 6pm EST!
