    Bill Plotkin, PhD, founder of Animas Valley Institute, describes himself as a psychologist gone wild.” A cultural visionary, author, and guide to the entwined mysteries of wilderness and psyche, he’s been blazing new trails for decades. His ecocentric re-visioning of psychology invites us into a conscious and embodied relationship with soul and with the more-than-human world. His other books areSoulcraft and Wild Mind. He lives in southwestern Colorado.
    Addressing the pervasive longing for meaning and fulfillment in this time of crisis,Nature and the Human Soul introduces a visionary ecopsychology of human development that reveals how fully and creatively we can mature when soul and wild nature guide us. Depth psychologist and wilderness guide Bill Plotkin presents a model for a human life span rooted in the cycles and qualities of the natural world, a blueprint for individual development that ultimately yields a strategy for cultural transformation.

    With evocative language and personal stories, including those of elders Thomas Berry and Joanna Macy, this book defines eight stages of human life - Innocent, Explorer, Thespian, Wanderer, Soul Apprentice, Artisan, Master, and Sage - and describes the challenges and benefits of each. Plotkin offers a way of progressing from our current egocentric, aggressively competitive, consumer society to anecocentric, soul-based one that is sustainable, cooperative, and compassionate. At once a primer on human development and a manifesto for change,Nature and the Human Soul fashions a template for a more mature, fulfilling, and purposeful life - and a better world.
