~5-Week Course, Each Thursday in May~ Ecopsychology: Exploring the Complex Relationship between Nature and Human Nature


The social, environmental, economic, and psychological challenges we face in our world today affect our lives, communities and the planet itself. The OVGC is pleased to offer two different and exciting educational programs.
Ecopsychology is a multifaceted, developing field of studies. We are fortunate to have Lori Pye, Ph.D. present these events in our community.
Dr. Pye, President of the Viridis Graduate School of Ecopsychology, will explore how relationships (our psychology) are reflected in our community, culture and wider world (our ecology).
