“Nature Knows The Way”: Psychological Biomimicry Training

Live better living by nature’s wisdom

Unearth an ecopsychological tool kit for applying nature’s most important principles and teachings – those timelessly proven and perfected by our planet- into all areas of your life.

Discover ecopsychological insights for understanding and action
Find community and support of like-minded peers
Cultivate your capacity to live well and do good by aligning with the forces and rhythms of nature

We are living in a time when we are continually reminded of the many unjust, destructive and unhealthy foundations of our society. Our culture, and the roots of our issues, are not living aligned with the principles of the planet, of life… this explains so much of the suffering we are seeing.

Discover a more harmonious and healing way to live in the world.

Our multi-module program will provide you with useful, adaptable and impactful ecopsychological principles and practices you can bring into your life. Biomimicry – using the processes and designs of nature to solve problems and realize potential – has achieved great success across many fields, including energy, design, healthcare, etc. However, what is lacking and needed is psychologically mimicking and applying nature’s principles and lessons into the fabric of our lives and society. If we do this, the healing and regenerative solutions we need and want will occur. This training will teach you how to do that.

During this training, you will acquire a comprehensive Psychological Biomimicry Toolkit that you can incorporate into all areas of your life, from your personal psychology and relationships, to work and community involvement. This distinct set of principles, teachings and qualities will give you an ecopsychological roadmap for how to act, who to be, and what to remember as you engage life. In addition to learning about EPI’s unique Toolkit, you’ll also be supported and empowered to find your own guiding lessons and wisdom inspired by nature.
To accommodate your unique schedule and promote the power of shared learning and community, this course is self-guided with opportunities for live participation. Pre-recorded, downloadable lectures will be sent out to engage at your own pace. Additionally, there will be optional live webinars with group discussion, Q&A and reflections. Webinars are a chance to deepen our connections and learning with each other, creating a supportive community where we learn, grow and practice. You will also receive class resources, including readings and practices, to deepen your learning.

“I have participated in two interactive webinar learning experiences hosted by Dennis and EPI. 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 counselling practice. Join up, get on line, and be part of the conversation, for the benefit of people and the planet!” -Lucy Vam Sambeek, Eco-therapist
“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!” -Mel Stiles
“Dennis’ presentation received rave reviews. For me, the most important aspect of Dennis Kiley’s teaching is communicating the framework or worldview from which his healing message emanates. The term “paradigm shift” aptly describes Dennis’ work. Mr. Kiley is trumpeting the interconnectedness 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. -Tony Ferrara, Coordinator, Climate Convergence Conference

Nature epitomizes resilience and regeneration, growth and sustainability, healing and health-
