I interviewed Dennis on my podcast, No Pain Know Gain, and we got into a great conversation about the EcoPsychology Initiative’s Ten Principles. Our discussion examined what the principles were and how business entrepreneurs and leaders can apply them professionally and personally for meaningful impact. Dennis is engaging and personable while able to share his really innovative Principles in a way that is accessible and empowering. I have no doubt my audience will find value in his work. I would strongly recommend him for other future speaking opportunities.
I took part in the Climate Stress and Psychology course. I found it invaluable in providing me with tools to start trying to come to terms with the climate crisis. I have experienced eco-anxiety and this class helped me to feel more self-assured in my own decisions about how I want to contribute and what feels right. I also think it made me really think about nature and my relationship with it. I definitely treasure and notice nature more than I have done in the past. I can’t say the eco-anxiety has completely gone away but I do feel largely better able to cope and I also found connecting with activists around the world incredibly interesting and inspiring. Thank you Dennis!
Dennis presentation received rave reviews. For me, the most important aspect of Dennis Kiley’s teaching is communicating the framework or world-view from which his healing message emanates. The term “paradigm shift” aptly describes Dennis’ work. Mr. Kiley is trumpeting in the inter-connectedness of all living things and Earth’s life systems. This new vision of the universe is the needed antidote to help us diverge from our current destructive planetary trajectory. I heartily recommend becoming acquainted with Dennis Kiley’s teachings.
This work is both time honored and cutting edge and necessary in our world today.
Educated, kind and well-informed leadership — and Dennis also happens to be an experienced wilderness guide. Not dogmatic or one-size-fits-all experience. You will be wisely guided to see where you fit into this exploding movement.
Clearly what you managed to create in your course went far beyond the very interesting actual content of EcoPsychology. You created an interaction between all of us participating that actually generated feelings of love, bonding, friendship and safety. For me, that was amazing. As I said, I didn’t dream it was possible via high tech. And your commitment to that interactive happening was genuine, felt by us all, and held in the compassionate appreciation you had for each and everyone.
Not only did we look at the ways of nature and principles and processes that have allowed the natural world to thrive but how these processes can be tremendously helpful in our own personal lives. In addition, we as class members, formed a caring group, a sangha, able to share our own perspectives and concerns in a space that allowed for honesty and vulnerability and we created real friendships. There was much to learn and I would gladly take this class again.
The teachings and wisdom Dennis offers is one of a kind and has helped me become a better leader and advocate in my life. I can’t recommend EPI highly enough. We all need to be doing our part to help the planet and this is a great support system to help do so!
I am loving the community that has been and is generated by such experiences, as well as Dennis’ generosity, wisdom and gentleness in his style of teaching/sharing. The Learning Modules are great value and accessible for people from all walks of life with an interest in applying nature’s wisdom to our lives. I have walked away more enriched both personally and professionally, with lots of ideas on how to apply the ideas to my social work and counseling practice. Join up, get on line, and be part of the conversation, for the benefit of people and the planet!
It is a false notion that humans and the environment cannot thrive together. We show you how to do well for yourself. We show you how to do well for the planet.
