Greensong Mission

To offer inspiring nature-aligned experiences to re-connect people with the innate, ecological self and the unique roles we play as a part of our natural world

 

Greensong Vision

People experience a perspective of respect, reciprocity, and belonging.  From these experiences they sense the desire to embrace and engage in mutually restorative relationships with nature, as part of nature

 

Greensong is founded on

Ecopsychology methodology with respect for innate wisdom, systems thinking, justice, interconnected, reciprocal relationships with all entities

The Earth Charter joining together to bring forth a sustainable global society founded on respect for nature, universal human rights, economic justice, and a culture of peace

Permaculture Ethics of Earth Care, People Care and Fair Share

SUSTAINABILITY

OF SELF

Applied Ecopsychology and eco-art methods offer relaxation, healing, wisdom and self-discovery through a variety of nature + mindfulness opportunities.

Participating tunes us in to our innate being in relationship with other beings and entities, and offers guidance to act on behalf of, and as a part of the life-sustaining, reciprocal world.

SUSTAINABILITY

OF ENVIRONMENT

We are nourished by creating holistic ecosystems surrounding us that nurture ourselves and our natural world.

As we are not separate from our environment, there are many ways to tune in to the reciprocal relationships surrounding us and take actions that support life to thrive. 

Widening Circles - Rainer Maria Rilke

I live my life in widening circles
that reach out across the world.
I may not complete this last one
but I give myself to it.

I circle around God, around the primordial tower.
I’ve been circling for thousands of years
and I still don’t know: am I a falcon,
a storm, or a great song?

Sustainability of self, community and environment

The term 'sustainability' emerged in the 1970's as a key concept for environmental and social planning processes. In the 1980's the United Nations 'World Commission on Environment and Development' (WCED) published a report defining sustainable development as "development that meets the needs of current generations without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs" (WCED 1987)

Anthropocentric (egocentric) to ecocentric

Deb desires to broaden and challenge this concept from an anthropocentric viewpoint to ecocentric which considers all life, without humans being the noted superior species.  She looks at the systems, cycles and rhythms supporting all life; within ourselves, community and our environment.  About Deb

Engagement

Greensong aims to support and inspire individuals and groups by offering simple, enriching and empowering practices, experiences and strategies that can be easily integrated in regular daily life.  The human species is the only species capable on our planet to use our whole body to take actions to make changes necessary to create a regenerative culture and attempt to mitigate the damage of the climate and ecological crisis. 

 

Collaboration

Collaborations with other persons, organizations and projects are chosen for their integrity, ethics and commitment to equitable, long-term sustainability and a peaceful world.
