Philosophy as a practice in the ecological emergency – let love do what needs to be done

Yoga And EcoPhilosophy Retreat In Lanzarote – April 2023

A Warm Welcome


My aim here is to connect with people who want to come on retreat, undertake online courses, benefit from existential mentoring , or use whatever resources I can make available, so we can all respond as effectively as possible to the ecological emergency.

My books are Love is Green: compassion as responsibility in the ecological emergency, Philosophy as Practice in the Ecological Emergency:An Exploration of Urgent Matters, Palgrave Macmillan, (forthcoming 2022), and Yoga for Now: embodied philosophy in the ecological emergency.

On this site, I’ll make some resources available, and I’ll give you ways to contact me. I’ll also share details of courses, classes and retreats. Compassionate communication, making connections, and developing resilience are going to be increasingly important strategies for survival. Let’s generate ideas together, let’s change the story of humanity, let’s save ourselves!
