Ecopsychology Online Distance Learning (3 to 12 months)

This course offers a very flexible learning opportunity designed around your specific interests and circumstance. It provides structure and support to help you explore this fascinating subject, without needing to attend a residential course or engage with longer, formal study.
Introduction to Facilitating Natural Change
14-21 March 2015 | Knoydart, Scotland.
This course is residential and is held in Knoydart, on the west coast of Scotland. It introduces the basic principles and practice of the Natural Change approach, and acts as a foundation for further training.
Tending the Flame
24-28 April 2015 | Glen Prosen, Scotland.
“When asked if I am pessimistic or optimistic about the future, my answer is always the same: If you look at the science about what is happening on earth & aren’t pessimistic, you don’t understand the data. But if you meet the people who are working to restore this earth & the lives of the poor, & you aren’t optimistic, you haven’t got a pulse.” - Paul Hawken
In response to research undertaken by Osbert Lancaster, Margaret Kerr and I earlier in the year, we’ve set up a new course called Tending the Flame. The course is for those who have experience of work or activism for sustainability and related fields, and are finding it increasingly difficult to be optimistic in the face of the ‘data’.
Are you coping with doubts while maintaining a brave face in public as, like many campaigners, community leaders, consultants or practitioners? Or maybe you are seeking new ways to be effective in the world, or looking for affirmation that your chosen life path is heading in the right direction. If so, then this course could help.
The course is being run by Natural Change Limited.
11-15 May 2015 & Autumn 2015 (TBC) | Schumacher College, Devon & Online
This course explores practical aspects of working outdoors to facilitate personal and ecological healing. It combines theoretical perspectives with practical skills and is designed to help you develop the confidence to start working in a variety of outdoor locations.
The course is split into three sections. A one-week residential programme will be followed by a series of six online seminars, leading to a second one-week residential. There will be a total of eight residential days and six, one-hour online sessions.
Autumn 2015 | Schumacher College, Devon.
We’re all indigenous to somewhere. We’re all connected to the land and place we inhabit, to our ecological family, as well as to our human family and ancestors.
Through teachings, experiential practices, stories, sharing and listening we will explore our own indigeny – wherever we are ‘from’ and whatever that turns out to be. We will journey in the land local to the college, on Dartmoor or by the sea. And we will journey in our personal, collective and ecological imaginations.
