I am a writer, storyteller, ‘narrative ecopsychologist‘, and editor of EarthLines Magazine — currently living on a croft by the sea in the Outer Hebrides, but about to move to Donegal, in Ireland. Re-enchanting the Earth is an idea, a vision, a body of work, an offering of courses, coaching, mentoring, consultancy and other opportunities for exploring our wild selves … above all it is a site for conversations about the stories that help create transformation, and about ways of living and being that help us find our place in the world.
Over at the blog you’ll find writing about a variety of subjects which constellate around the focus of all my work: exploring the culture of land and place, and facilitating a sense of belonging and being at home in the world. I believe that a sense of connectedness to the land is also threaded through with storylines and mythlines, with songs and art and poetry and other cultural imaginings, and involves creating a bridge between the inner world – especially our creative imagination – and our embodied and sensory experience of the physical world.
In the ‘Courses‘ section you’ll find information about a variety of ways in which you can study with me one-to-one in the fields of narrative psychology, myth & storytelling, ecopsychology, and nature writing. These offerings are designed both to help others to deepen and re-enchant their creative work, and to help people engage with their own journeys of personal transformation. On the ‘Mentoring, coaching & consultancy‘ page you’ll find information about working with me in more flexible ways on projects and issues of your own.
On the ‘Writing‘ page is a selection of my writings, including extracts from my novel The Long Delirious Burning Blue, which can also be purchased securely in print or e-book format via PayPal.
