Reciprocal Healing: Nature, Health, and Wild Vitality
The health of humans and nature are inextricably linked.
As we heal ourselves, we heal the earth – and vice versa.
The goal is to illuminate the healing ground that lies at the confluence of natural history, medicine, and psychology. From this common ground we intend to grow the practices and associations that will foster the health of all life.
Join this event and help activate a coalition of engaged people to inspire and empower connections between disciplines. Interactions between naturalists and ecologists, psychologists, physicians, educators, artists, writers, and advocates will light a path that connects humans and nature through healing both the human and more-than-human world. This national confluence is dedicated to nurturing a sense of hope grounded in tangible, actionable outcomes. Participants will benefit from inspiration, innovation, cross-pollination, and depth in both plenary and breakout sessions.
The gathering will be structured as a confluence between three primary tributaries— medicine, psychology, and natural history - with a rhythm of alternating plenary presentations from inspiring speakers and illuminating panels, smaller field workshops, and open space for emergent ideas. Throughout the 4 days and 3 nights of the gathering, they’ll integrate intellect, spirit, and experience while intertwining contemplation and wild nature. The committee anticipates almost 200 participants, from across North America and beyond.
They intend to emerge with the strategies and skills to take this work into the wider world. The academic journal Ecopsychology has committed to engagement with this conference, with the intention of publishing a special section deriving from the gathering.
