The contribution of deep ecology to music therapy practice
Are you looking for a more spiritual & ecological approach to your work with clients? Seeking a deeper connection between yourself, your client and the seen and unseen world?
Then you've come to the right place.
This tutorial is a current look at the philosophy of deep ecology and how it can impact your music therapy practice.
Deep ecology is an environmental movement and philosophy which regards human life as just one of many equal components of a global ecosystem.
Join Professor Jane Edwards as she presents current research in deep ecology, its origins in social work theory and its potential in our collective and individual music therapy practice.
Highlighting Carolyn Kenny’s pioneering work in this field of thought Jane explains how we can bring an ecological sensibility to our music therapy practice and create spaces for innovation and change.
Spaces which encourage healing.
Enhance your connection with yourself and your clients by understanding how Kenny's 'Field of play' helps us to be fully human and fully alive to the other and to oneself.
Join us for this beautiful tutorial and learn simple techniques to help you stay spiritually connected to the natural world and bring this connection to your clients.
“Deep ecology is a spiritual gift! It is perfect and harmless. However, when you apply perfect spiritual energy to a mind that has been conditioned to know fear and pain and all kinds of negative things, then the conditioning is exposed and you can let go of it. You can let go of human misery and be a free and natural person. Your human personality can be filled with serenity, joy, health and spiritual wisdom. Deep ecology delivers more of these things than we can possibly promise.” ~ John Croft

"'I was drawn to this tutorial because I am very interested in ecology and thought it seemed like an excellent approach to staying grounded while practising or even doing desk work which I have been doing a lot of in the last few years'
