This conversation is a wide-ranging exploration of the new field of ecopsychology. It includes discussions of how the lived body and Buddhist psychology figure in this field, as well as the radical implications of reconnecting our minds to nature.

Author of one of the field’s primary texts, Radical Ecopsychology: Psychology in the Service of Life(2nd Ed.), he is best known for his critical scholarship and holistic vision of the ecopsychological project. Andy keeps up an active schedule of writing and teaching, including a year-long training in ecopsychology that he offers near his home in eastern Ontario, Canada.
