Applied Ecopsychology identifies human-nature behavioral influences and relationships within our self, society, and environment.  Nature reconnecting techniques access the present, mindful, sensory world, often resulting in rejuvenating and insightful experiences to heal, expand self-development and ripple into the ecosystems surrounding us.  Deb aims to empower individuals, groups and families to take sustainable actions in their lives that ripples into their local environment and circles of influence.

CONTACT DEB-GREENSONG

Deb enjoyed working for 5-years in an Early Childhood setting creating and managing a Sensory Garden Project and Environment Education Workshops in Singapore. This 2-year project was formed the basis of her BA equivalency in Applied Ecopsychology and was made up of proposals, sensory landscape design, creating Environmental Education workshops, implementing EE into the International IB School curriculum, teacher professional development, and documentation.  This also offered exciting multi-generational and cross-cultural experiences within environmental sustainability boundaries.

SACRED ACTIVISM

"Sacred Activism is a transforming force of compassion-in-action that is born of a fusion of deep spiritual knowledge, courage, love, and passion, with wise radical action in the world. The large-scale practice of Sacred Activism can become an essential force for preserving and healing the planet and its inhabitants." - Andrew Harvey

 

I allow our earth to flow through me with feeling, listening and communicating to know what meaningful actions to take that will benefit our planet. 

I provide techniques and a space (online and in-person) to transition emotions through the SOS eco-resilience project. It is natural that we would feel anger, rage, and other intense feelings when protecting our earth, part of us... If we allow ourselves to transition all feelings without a judgement of 'good and bad' and intersperse them all with love and gratitude, it will help us keep a balanced and motivated focus.
