What is ecotherapy?
Ecotherapy is an "umbrella term for nature-based methods of physical and psychological healing ...acknowledges the vital role of nature and addresses the human-nature relationship."
"Ecotherapy refers to healing and growth nurtured by healthy interaction with the earth."
Ecotherapy identifies "health (as) a systems concept that cannot be split off from the whole", where healing our bodies also includes taking care of the environment around us.
In therapeutic practice, the natural world becomes a co-therapist, a third entity in the client-therapist relationship, where as inviting nature in to the mix offers increased opportunity to reconnect our bodies to a bigger system and increase our awareness using our senses and curiosity.
What are some ecotherapy practices?
Ecotherapy practices encompass a wide range of work-in-nature: nature-reconnection practices, animal-assisted psychotherapy, horticultural therapy, time-stress management, wilderness work and retreat, environmental activism, nature bathing, voluntary simplicity, nature based meditation groups, walking therapy, and more.
