Ecopsychology and the Environmental Catastrophe

March 17 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm PDT

Virtual Event Virtual Event

At the 2022 climate change meetings in Egypt, the UN Secretary General said, “We are in the fight of our lives, and we are losing.” Psychology has been embarrassingly slow to respond to the frightening deterioration of our planetary environment, but ecopsychology emerged in the 1990’s to address the issue. A case will be made that a Jungian version of ecopsychology offers the best framework for understanding the problems at the deepest levels and gives us a vision for the future. Hermes is the main god that will lead us into a better future or a continuation on a path to oblivion.

Dennis Merritt Ph.D., holds an MA in Humanistic Psychology, a Ph.D. in Insect Pathology from UC-Berkeley, and is a graduate of the Zurich Jung Institute. He is a Jungian analyst, sandplay therapist, and ecopsychologist in Madison and Milwaukee, WI. He grew up on a small dairy farm in Wisconsin where he developed a deep connection with the land, hence the title of his four-volume Dairy Farmer’s Guide to the Universe: Jung, Hermes and Ecopsychology. He is interested in the ecopsychological dimensions of Jungian theory and practice, beginning at the intra-psychic level and extending to others and the environment.
