Tina Fields is Associate Professor and Chair of the low-residency MA program in Ecopsychology. She has taught about the cultural & spiritual sides of sustainability issues since 1999, including five years living and guiding outdoors with the field-based Audubon Expedition Institute and four years training sustainability activists with New College. Dr. Fields’ current work ties together ecopsychology, spirituality, applied bioregional understanding, reskilling and storytelling to help environmental behavior change shift from a perceived burden to a chosen joy. Dr. Fields is listed in several editions of Who’s Who. She is an ACISTE certified Spiritual Guidance Counselor, co-editor of So What? Now What? The Anthropology of Consciousness Responds to a World In Crisis (Cambridge Scholars Press), and an accomplished visual and performance artist whose creative work helps build community and remind industrialized people of our animistic connection to the living world.
