This evening’s radio show is honoring the Earth and Earth Day. My guest is Gaia, Mother EarthHerself.
I will focus on the Environment–what we’ve done to our beautiful Earth, the dire consequences of this mindless destruction, and what we can do about it. This will also include a psychological analysis of man’s quest for power, in the forms of money, prestige and unbridled drive toward dominance and acquisition.
I have been an environmentalist and an activist since a young teen, long before I could drive. My father was kind enough to drive me to demonstrations in Bridgeport, Ct. near where I lived from an early age. I couldn’t believe what people were willing to do to our environment for the sake of profit.
My work as a therapist was always informed by my appreciation of Deep Ecology and through my own work, gave rise to a form of eco-psychology, a form of spiritual psychology rooted in deep reverence and celebration of the Sacred Earth Mother. These will be discussed on today’s show.
