About Chris

Chris Hoffman

Consultant, Ecopsychologist, Poet

For a world that is ecologically sustainable, socially just, and spiritually fulfilling for all beings.

"In ancient Ireland there was a saying, 'Three equals: a king, a harper, and a poet.'  The poet had been trained to step in a crucial times of difficulty and through extemporaneous speech bring a sense and clarity to the confusion of the moment, and through that give the people some sense of their beckoning collective future." (David Whyte, The Heart Aroused.)  Bringing sense and clarity is also the work of the consultant.
