Welcome to my website

I have created it as a way for people to find out about my work in ecopsychology, including the vision fasting work that I lead with my wife Jill Dunkley. There is also a page on my psychotherapy services.

Ecopsychology places all psychological and spiritual matters within the context of our membership in the natural world. It is a psychology that says "we too are nature." It is also a kind of psychological politics dedicated to building an ecological society--a society that serves life and maintains the ecological integrity of the earth. My own work in ecopsychology has focused on the specific challenges and unique opportunities presented by this new field.

For those interested in studying ecopsychology with me, I teach an annual course at the University of Vermont, and can tailor a course for individuals who wish to study long-distance (see the "Teaching" heading on the Ecopsychology page).

 

I am teaching Buddhist psychology these days in a number of ways:

For those in the Ottawa-Gatineau area, I will be teaching a day-long workshop in Aylmer, Budhhist Psychology and The Mindfulness Revolution with Sage Tree Circles on Friday January 22, 2016.

I will also be leading a weekend workshop on Buddhist psychology at Wintergreen Studios, from May 6-8, 2016. This will be the second time I have lead this retreat at Wintergreen, though I will switch up the content a bit for anyone who wishes to repeat the experience. It is a unique opportunity to study the ancient yet remarkably current teachings of the Buddha at a beautiful wilderness retreat centre. See details here.

My wife Jill Dunkley and I are leading a Mid-Winter Day of Mindfulness at our home studio on February 6, 2016. This event is fully booked with a waiting list, so we may repeat it.

Finally, I am also teaching weekly classes on Buddhist psychology with the Perth Yoga Connection (YC) studio. I am currently teaching an Intro class, but I also teach a "Part 2" course, and lead an ongoing goup (a "sangha") for those who want to keep going. Check the YC website or contact me if you are interested.
