Amidst a tempest of climate disruption, social disarray, creature extinctions, ecosystem collapse and other mayhem, too few leaders have perceptual skills, sufficient imagination, or a strong enough compass to navigate the riptides of enormous change. Perhaps we need help from intelligence that is older and far more than human. What if the membrane between the planetary psyche and human imagination is permeable, allowing for Earth to press its own longings into our human awareness – both as individual persons, and as a species? On Friday evening – through poetry, thought experiments, and other fascinations – we'll explore foundational ideas that suggest the possibility of a planetary psyche that might be participatory with the individual (and collective) human psyche.

Geneen Marie Haugen, Ph.D., grew up a little wild, with a run-amok imagination. Her matrilineal ancestors are the indigenous Sami of the European Arctic. She is a content creator and guide to the mysteries of nature and psyche with the Animas Valley Institute (, and has been on the faculty of Esalen Institute and Schumacher College. Her writing has appeared in Spiritual Ecology: The Cry of the Earth; Thomas Berry: Dreamer of the Earth; Parabola; Kosmos Journal; Ecopsychology, and many others.
