9th INTERNATIONAL ECOPSYCHOLOGY CONFERENCE
ORISTANO – IS ARENAS
SARDINIA – ITALY
20>24 SEPTEMBER 2023
We will embrace, after 4 years, on the shores of the Mediterranean, for the 9th international conference of Ecopsychology, in an ancient land where the cult of the Mother Goddess has left footprints still visible in the landscape architecture. Ecopsychologists and ecotuners, from more than 20 nations, will allow us to deepen and share how Ecopsychology accompanies us to rediscover and make re-discover the sense of the sacred in Nature and with Nature.
Su sentidu, in Sardinian language, means “what I feel deeply”, it refers to our ability to open ourselves, with the five senses, and beyond, to grasp the immensity and complexity of what surrounds us, of which we are a part. A precious inner function to tap into for responsible and inspired action on Earth.
Ecopsychology, Psychology and Ecology professionals from 26 different nations meet to share their commitment, research and activity in promoting a broader view of the human being as part of the evolving life process and to facilitate the passage from an anthropocentric to an econcentric vision, in which the laws of life become a guide in the art of living well… together. For the conferences there will be simultaneous translation.
26 EXPERIENTIAL WORKSHOPS
Enveloped by the scent of pine trees and the Mediterranean scrub, pampered by the breeze and the sounds of the sea, Ecotuners from all over the world will accompany us to live experiences in Nature, with Nature: creative activities, meditations, dance, thematic groups for meetings and exchanges , green mindfulness and many other personal and professional growth activities. You can choose between workshops in Italian, Spanish and English. They will all be repeated twice and you can participate in those most relevant to your interests.
