The goal of the Temenos Center is to empower deep and meaningful living in harmony with psyche, soul, and nature.

In my work with others, I am passionate about facilitating archetypal processes in the natural world. I have worked with others around the world – from the Kerry National Forest in Ireland to the wooded hills of Germany to the wetlands and meadows of West Michigan – and have guided and been witness to many numinous experiences of ecotherapeutic restoration, including my own.

The nature based archetypal facilitation framework I have developed is a result of my  experiences of ecotherapeutic healing coupled with my Jungian and Archetypal studies and doctoral research at Pacifica Graduate Institute. It strives to offer a means to not only respond to the many human and earth symptoms of the separation from nature, but also to proactively (re)inhabit and tend our relationship to soul in and of the natural world.

Through community programs and personalized archetypal facilitation, we explore together ways to re-imagine into and fully re-inhabit the act of being in the world.
