Asking for Divine Assistance

Greetings DPA hive,

I must cut to the chase so please forgive my curtness. I'm asking for assistance to retrieve my belongings from a storage facility, which also includes previously unseen video footage of a former LAPD narcotics officer I interviewed in 2012 in Sebastapol, CA regarding peak oil and the collapse we're witnessing in the US that he predicted with stunning accuracy in the documentary, Collapse [2010]. It is part of a book I'm working on.

Currently, I am house…

Message from Standing Rock Sioux Tribe

“We’re coming together because we were originally the custodians and there’s a responsibility to that. People may think that this is just an isolated situation, but I know the people, I know myself. No matter how angry I get… the love is greater and all I really want to happen is for everyone to have a sense of love. There’s a lot of forgiveness that happens here, a lot of forgiveness, and we’re doing it all from love. That’s native pride. That is true native…

Depth Psychology and Climate Change - adaptation is the key

Joanna Macy and 'Sustaining the Gaze'

One of the many phrases that will stay with me from this week at Women's Future First 2014 Congress is that of Joanna Macy: sustaining the gaze. Even though what we see in the world is frightening and enraging, it is so important we witness (not deny) what mankind has…

Do We Need More Psychology?

Dennis L. Merritt, Ph.D.

In the famous 1957 BBC interview, C.G. Jung proclaimed, “We need more psychology, the human psyche must be studied! Humans are the source of all coming evil.”

Psychology is positioned to usher in a holistic approach to the study of the human psyche, our relationship to the environment, and a truly interdisciplinary educational system. As Jung pointed out, all we know and experience comes out of the psyche and all our systems, including science, have…

Navigating Trauma in the Face of Contemporary Culture, Displacement, and Ecological Destruction

In the heart of the jungle in Columbia, the U’wa people live a simple existence mostly beyond the reaches of modern society, having had little contact at all with the outside world until a few decades ago. Their indigenous relationship to the earth sustains them in a collective role as caretakers of the earth and an equal facet of nature. Thus, when the prospect of international firms making plans to drill into their ancestral lands for oil in the late 1990s arose, they perceived the concept…

Best of the Best this Week in “Depth” December 12, 2010

Deck the Halls with Ecostalgia and the Empty Self: Longing for Home at the Holidays

It's common to feel nostalgic during the holidays. “Nostalgia,” by modern definition, means a "wistful yearning for the past." Etymologically, the root "nostos" means "homecoming" and "algos" means "pain, grief, distress." Thus, nostalgia may be translated as "severe…
