The purpose of my work is to encourage people to live within ecological limits – motivated through an embodied sense of ecological identity.

This ‘ecological self’ is conscious that we are each part of the Earth’s wider ecology. We are ecological beings – totally dependant on, and interdependent with, the rest of nature.

Realising our ecological nature brings personal and ecological healing simultaneously. When the self is lived as nature, both can flourish.

Wild places seems to provide a powerful context for our ecological selves to unfold naturally, so ‘wilderness work’ forms the core of my programmes and projects. However, I do spend the majority of my time working in more conventional ways – as a consultant, teacher and mentor.
