    • Abstract:
      Although Jung brought discussion of the anima mundi (World Soul) back into depth psychology, we still tend to see the lands we live on as inanimate. Nor has depth psychology focused much on the psychic impact of environmental destruction of the type now ravaging so much of Earth's surface. Introduced is the concept of ecological complexes: points of deep environmental wounding that resonate into the human psyche. Methods for tracing human sufferings back to the pain of place are now being assembled and used in the field. Sensitivity to ecological complexes offers a new understanding of how intimately we interact with land and place and suggests an ecology of the heart that moves beyond considerations of sustainability.
