✏Hermes Ecopsychology and Complexity Theory Book Summary : "Who ever does not shy away from dangers of the most profound depths and the newest pathways, which Hermes is always prepared to open, may follow and reach, whether as scholar, commentator, or philosopher, a greater find and a more certain possession.”—Karl Kerenyi An exegesis of the myth of Hermes stealing Apollo's cattle and the story of Hephaestus trapping Aphrodite and Ares in the act are used in The Dairy Farmer's Guide to the Universe Volume III to set a mythic foundation for Jungian ecopsychology. Hermes, Ecopsychology, and Complexity Theory illustrates Hermes as the archetypal link to our bodies, sexuality, the phallus, the feminine, and the earth. Hermes' wand is presented as a symbol for ecopsychology. The appendices of this volume develop the argument for the application of complexity theory to key Jungian concepts, displacing classical Jungian constructs problematic to the scientific and academic community. Hermes is described as the god of ecopsychology and complexity theory. The front cover image is from a photo taken by the author of detail on an Attic Greek calyx krater by Euxitheos (potter) and Euphronios (painter) ca. 515 BCE. The gap between the horn-like extensions atop Hermes’ staff highlight his domain—the exchange and interactive field between things, as between people, consciousness and the unconscious, body and mind, and humans and nature.

✏Expressive Ecopsychology Book Summary : The expressive ecopsychology practice of ecological art-making heightens perception of place, self, and others. Heightened perception includes a range of new awareness from noticing fine details to relational and ecospiritual realizations. Heightened perception achieved during the transition from nature-dominating acts to creative and collaborative ecological art-making prompts awareness of dominating behavior toward the more-than-human world. The research presented in this paper evaluates the effect invasive plant removal projects have on participant perceptions and explores the transition to creative expression within the same natural places. Heightened perception was reported during invasive removal work and increased during ecological art-making in both number of instances and levels of perception. Realizations of dominant and destructive behavior toward nature regarding invasive removal work were not prompted yet recorded by some participants after ecological art-making.

✏The Voice of the Earth Book Summary : What is the bond between the human psyche and the living planet that nurtured us, and all of life, into existence? What is the link between our own mental health and the health of the greater biosphere? In this "bold, ambitious, philosophical essay" (Publishers Weekly), historian and cultural critic Roszak explores the relationships between psychology, ecology, and new scientific insights into systems in nature. Drawing on our understanding of the evolutionary, self-organizing universe, Roszak illuminates our rootedness in the greater web of life and explores the relationship between our own sanity and the larger-than-human world. The Voice of the Earth seeks to bridge the centuries-old split between the psychological and the ecological with a paradigm which sees the needs of the planet and the needs of the person as a continuum. The Earth's cry for rescue from the punishing weight of the industrial system we have created is our own cry for a scale and quality of life that will free us to become whole and healthy. This second edition contains a new afterword by the author.

✏Ecopsychology Book Summary : We need nature for our physical and psychological well-being. Our actions reflectthis when we turn to beloved pets for companionship, vacation in spots of natural splendor, or spendhours working in the garden. Yet we are also a technological species and have been since wefashioned tools out of stone. Thus one of this century's central challenges is to embrace ourkinship with a more-than-human world -- "our totemic self" -- and integrate that kinship with ourscientific culture and technological selves. This book takes on that challengeand proposes a reenvisioned ecopsychology. Contributors consider such topics as the innate tendencyfor people to bond with local place; a meaningful nature language; the epidemiological evidence forthe health benefits of nature interaction; the theory and practice of ecotherapy; Gaia theory;ecovillages; the neuroscience of perceiving natural beauty; and sacred geography. Taken together,the essays offer a vision for human flourishing and for a more grounded and realistic environmentalpsychology. The hardcover edition does not include a dust jacket.

✏Ecopsychology Phenomenology and the Environment Book Summary : This book seeks to confront an apparent contradiction: that while we are constantly attending to environmental issues, we seem to be woefully out of touch with nature. The goal of Ecopsychology, Phenomenology and the Environment is to foster an enhanced awareness of nature that can lead us to new ways of relating to the environment, ultimately yielding more sustainable patterns of living. This volume is different from other books in the rapidly growing field of ecopsychology in its emphasis on phenomenological approaches, building on the work of phenomenological psychologists such as Maurice Merleau-Ponty. This focus on phenomenological methodologies for articulating our direct experience of nature serves as a critical complement to the usual methodologies of environmental and conservation psychologists, who have emphasized quantitative research. Moreover, Ecopsychology, Phenomenology and the Environment is distinctive insofar as chapters by phenomenologically-sophisticated ecopsychologists are complemented by chapters written by phenomenological researchers of environmental issues with backgrounds in philosophy and geology, providing a breadth and depth of perspective not found in other works written exclusively by psychologists.
