Writings

Some of these are recent; others go back a few years. The topics below overlap the categories, so in some cases the placement is a bit arbitrary.

A thread that pulls these together weaves through the complex and, to me, endlessly fascinating intersections between psyche, story, symbol, place, nature, myth, dream, and Earth. All my writing reflects my sense of living in an enchanted world.

Near the bottom on the left you’ll see a link to where my books can be found online. Terrapsychology, Rebirths, the Animate California Trilogy, and In the Thick of Things explore our deep relations with objects, nature, matter, and places. Ecotherapy, edited with Linda Buzzell, collects articles and practices for enriching our contact with the natural world. The Spectacle of Ourselves is a “big history” book that documents worldwide historical events from Big Bang to 2000, and The Folly of Repetition and the Wisdom of Remembrance gives thirty examples of when we’ve failed to learn from the past. Storied Lives gets into work with personal myth. I keep my list of publications up to date.
