Eco-psychology: Dr. Lori Pye

Posted: April 30, 2015 at 12:37 pm by , in Breaking News, Featured, Morning Magazine

“A human being is a living, breathing, walking eco-system because we share many of the same processes that we see in nature happening around us all the time.”

Eco-psychology is the idea that all of life’s systems are linked through multiple relationships. The human psyche is an ecosystem that connects us biologically, ecologically, and psychologically through vast webs of exchanges and vicissitudes across systems that are not always obvious or visible. Dr. Lori Pye comes to town May 1st and 2nd for a lecture and workshop on Eco-psychology. Her talk is titled, Psyche as Ecosystem. KGNU’s Nikki Kayser chats with Dr. Pye about the field of Eco-Psychology.

 

The Friday night lecture is May 1st, 7 – 9 pm; the Saturday workshop is 9 to 12:30 at Community United Church of Christ, 2650 Table Mesa Drive in Boulder . Details are at Boulder Friends of Jung’s website: bfjung.org. More information about the Viridis Graduate Institute: International School of Eco-psychology is on their website: viridisinstitute.org.
