Polar Bear Eco-therapy?

Feeling eco-anxious about the future?

"People tell me how an article about the polar bears losing their habitat was making them ill," says [eco-psychologist/therapist Melissa Pickett]. "So I place a photograph of a polar bear into the patients' hands and encourage them to have an imaginary conversation with him as a way to ease their despair." She also advises we carry rocks in our pockets to remind us of our connection with the Earth and buy one of her "sacred matrices" (yours for $10 each).

Oh dear. But more tips here. If you must.

I'll stick with the Zen monks 12 Essential Zenhabits.

I'm going to work especially hard on Zenhabit no. 4: Do less

Welcome to EARTHSPACE...

EARTHSPACE is the best way I could think of to respond to the many, many questions from (mostly) young people who have read my epic story of a drowned world - EXODUS, ZENITH with AURORA to follow - and are left wondering about the future.

'I've read your books,' the emails and letters say, 'and I can't get the story out of my head. What can I do about the future?'

EARTHSPACE is for you.
