Dedication to Reenchantment
“I founded Worldrede (“world” + “read”) to combine and offer the best of what I have learned as an educator, psychotherapist, depth psychologist, terrapsychologist, higher ed administrator and consultant, lecturer, publisher, writer, and storyteller.
“I bring deep and transformative learnings out of the classroom directly to you, who seek the kind of knowledge and practices that grow lasting change. I believe in the value of a graduate education, but it’s not for everybody.
“Our happiness with ourselves, the quality of our work, and the health of our communities depend on the stories we tell ourselves and each other. We cannot move from depletion to fulfillment in these areas until we learn to tell different stories.
“To motivate people, these stories must inspire, delight, and enchant. They must be spacious and sturdy enough to contain what’s wrong while pointing us toward what we can reimagine and work toward.
It has been my joy to help people discover the seeds of new ways to be with themselves and each other by learning aboutterrapsychology, the wisdom awaiting us in mythology and folk tales, the voice of the land, the presence of place, and our power to learn from the past in service to actualizing dreams of a better today.
“All my work in the world, whether teaching, publishing, writing books and articles, public speaking, offering seminars, conducting workshops, consulting, telling transformative stories, administrating, advising and guiding leaders, designing classes and programs, or conducting educational tours of local landscapes, is in service to creating and supporting the sustainable, just, and delightful communities of belonging I know we are capable of scaling up.
“Before we act differently, we must perceive differently. To do that we must imagine differently. Let’s do that together.”
