IMMERSE YOURSELF INTO NATURE
THE GOALS OF ECOPSYCHOLOGY
The biggest goal of ecopsychology is to connect people back to nature. Ecopsychology rests on the belief that we are intricately connected with nature and that embracing this connection results in positive outcomes for people and for the environment.
HOW ECOPSYCHOLOGY IS IMPLEMENTED
From visiting the volcanoes of the island, to ziplining through the forest canopy, and gardening on the grounds, we are so grateful for all of the opportunities Hawaii grants us to connect with the environment. By providing our clients with these various experiences, our clients begin to see how connected they are with the natural environment. From seeing the lava bend and mold, to planting a seed and watching it grow, they come to understand that their life is also comprised of stages of growth, rest, and endlesss change.
THE END RESULT: Clients establish a deep connection with the natural world around them and experience nature as a place they can go to? lower stress levels and cope in a healthy way. Additionally, clients gain a new found sense of respect for the natural world, striving to protect and cherish it.
