Tina R. Fields, PhD, is Professor Emeritx of Ecopsychology. She also currently serves on the Board and as USA Representative to the International Ecopsychology Society. She has taught about the cultural, psychological, & spiritual sides of environmental issues since 1999, including five years living fully outdoors in learning communities with the field-based Audubon Expedition Institute at Lesley University, four years training sustainability activists at the MA level with New College of California, two at Dominican University of CA, and Chair of Naropa’s Ecopsychology MA department. She is a dynamic speaker and singer who has served as invited keynote for such organizations as the European Ecopsychology Society, Napa-Solano Audubon Society, Unitarian Universalist Churches, and the Society for the Anthropology of Consciousness.
Her work ties together ecopsychology, cross-cultural spiritual beliefs and practices, applied bioregional understanding, reskilling, and storytelling (including the history of ideologies, family ecological identity, song and myths) to help environmental behavior change shift from a perceived burden to a chosen joy. Dr. Fields is listed in numerous editions of Who’s Who. She is certified in Forest Medicine (a.k.a. Shinrin-Yoku) through the Japan-based International Society for Nature and Forest Medicine, an ACISTE certified Spiritual Guidance Counselor specializing in non-clinical ecotherapy and spiritual emergence, a wilderness rites-of-passage guide, Naropa-trained mindfulness instructor, psychedelic guide, scholar/practitioner of shamanism and Druidry (pre-Christian Celtic earth-based spirituality), Pagan/interfaith celebrant, and an accomplished visual artist, songleader and contradance caller. Her creative work builds community and reminds industrialized people of our animistic connection to the living world.
This is where experiential learning meets academic rigor. Where you challenge your intellect and uncover your potential. Where you discover the work you’re moved to do—then use it to transform our world.
