the contributions of ecological thinking and thevalues of the natural world to psychotherapy andpersonal growth, and to
foster lifestyles that are both ecologically andpsychologically healthy

The core of the mind is the ecological unconscious;repression of the ecological unconscious is the root of 
 
madness; open access to the ecological unconscious isthe path to sanity.The contents of the ecological unconscious representthe living record of cosmic evolutionEcopsychology seeks to heal the more fundamental
 
alienation between the person and the naturalenvironment.Ecopsychology seeks to recover the child's innatelyanimistic quality of experience in functionally "sane"adults by creating the ecological ego.The ecological ego matures toward a sense of ethicalresponsibility with the planet that is as vividly
 
experienced as our ethical responsibility to other people.It seeks to weave that responsibility into the fabric of social relations and political decisions.
