Coming Home to a Reenchanted World

How might we psychologize, mythologize, and storytell our way toward inclusive, Earth-honoring, and enjoyable kinds of community? That is the question I ask every day.

It is not enough to know what we’re against. There’s so much of it around—greed, racism, sexism, global warming, warfare, political and religious corruption, toxic products, suffering animals, you name it—that identifying what’s harmful is easy. Look out the window.

What’s harder, but helpful, is to imagine and find examples of what we are for: peace, justice, clean soils and skies, happy animals, a healthy planet. To share stories about what we dream toward. From stories and dreams come reflections, plans, actions, evaluations, more stories…

Home is where you are now. It’s worth reflecting on that. How well do you know the place you occupy? Its history, ecology, geology, climate, traditions, social systems, and local lore? Do you feel like you belong there?

Writings offers a selection on myth, psyche, nature, place, the humanities, and current events, all arranged by topic areas. Some of it is quite serious, and some of it is irreverent. There are also links to my books.

Enchantivism collects resources for encouraging profound and lasting cultural change through inspiration and storytelling. There is a free kit downloadable there to get you started right away.

Terrania is the mythic-sounding name for the kind of just, beautiful, and enchanted world I would like to live in.

Terrapsychology takes you to the study of how our surroundings, including objects, landscapes, and even Earth, get into our psyches.

About contains a bit about me, including my professional background and the seminars and workshops I currently offer.

The Declaration of Enchantment offers a series of propositions about why the capacity for being inspired and uplifted is a basic human right.

Be sure to have a look at the Assembling Terrania Cycle of short stories of fantasy and hope depicting our coming of age as a species.

I am English by origin, but I am early World Man; and I live in exile from the world community of my desires.
I salute that finer, larger world across the generations. And maybe someone down the vista
may look back and appreciate an ancestrial salutation.
