We were never separate from the earth and its other creatures but the evolution of technology has tricked us into thinking we can get away with treating nature as a set of resources for our use and abuse. This isn’t true and current changes in the earth system are showing us the dangers of our assumptions. When we fall back in love with the earth and treat it with loving respect,we remember how interdependent and connected we all are. This is the empowered spirit of the ecomythic, the light that shines from within all life. Join me to rediscover your deep connection with nature at an Ecoretreat – apply now!
All human cultures have stories that tie them to the earth, reminding us of how we are interdependent with the elements of this planet and with its other lifeforms. These stories are usually called myths, which means they link us to the sacred. Great myths also set us up in right relation to the mystery of consciousness, the origins of life, the unfolding of evolution and our experience of being ourselves. The Australian Aboriginal Dreaming is an incredibly rich example of this. But all people need to rekindle their deep stories. Book Geoff now to enliven your next event with the deep and moving world of Ecomythic Storytelling!

Regain that natural birth right – to live life feeling fully empowered by the drive to evolve consciousness.

… is that we can be free from the limits of nature.
Dissolve the traps of modern life to feel renewed!
Tell me your dreams – from sleep and in the waking hours – and i will help you to see that they reveal about your soul.
Sometimes this can be scary or embarrassing.
But it also links you to the great mysteries of life and power.
Let me guide you along this path of awakening to the mythic within and without.

About Dr Geoffrey Berry
I grew up by the beach, with the Brothers Grimm for my stories. Largely unsupervised, I found spiritual connection in sand dunes and sun shine, my imagination fired by tales of whispering trees and dangerous quests into the darkness. When I became a young adult, I hitch hiked around the world for two years and then returned home to study mythology. It’s no surprise that I ended up writing an MA on the way our dreams link us to the ‘otherworld’, or that I followed this with a PhD on the meaning of light in times of ecological devastation … or that I ended up traipsing around Ireland meditating on stone circles for my post-doctoral research. After leaving academia behind, I now live on the coast of southern NSW, where I help kids who can’t live at home and provide all these other services …
