Provides a systems approach to psychology that extends the notion of psyche from an individual to a world ensouled. This approach is rooted in a view of humans and more-than-humans as energetically and materially bonded, deeply interconnected, and inextricably linked. Nature immersion, arts-based inquiry, and embodied and reflective practices enhance professional efficacy and personal resiliency and summon us to more fully and creatively participate in resolving prevailing disparities and dualisms. Aligned with Indigenous ontologies, pedagogies of increased relatedness invite the natural world as guide, co-teacher, and wise relative.
