Eco-psychology promotes individual well being by connecting with nature as a whole. In the journey towards individual healing, the taking care of the entire ecological network emerges naturally. When that reciprocity is re-establish, we find balance.
“To be native to a place we must learn to speak its language.”
“The land knows you, even when you are lost.”
“Knowing that you love the earth changes you, activates you to defend and protect and
celebrate. But when you feel that the earth loves you in return, that feeling transforms the relationship from a one-way street into a sacred bond.”
“Action on behalf of life transforms. Because the relationship between self and the world is reciprocal, it is not a question of first getting enlightened or saved and then acting. As we work to heal the earth, the earth heals us.”
“We need acts of restoration, not only for polluted waters and degraded lands, but also for our relationship to the world. We need to restore honor to the way we live, so that when we walk through the world we don’t have to avert our eyes with shame, so that we can hold our heads up high and receive the respectful acknowledgment of the rest of the earth’s beings.”
