The Hoop and the Tree
20th anniversary edition,
revised and expanded

Integrating psychology, spirituality, mythology, ecology, and native wisdom, The Hoop & the Tree describes the deep structure of psychological and spiritual wholeness and shows how understanding and embodying that structure can help us lead lives of balance and fulfillment.

“Therapeutic, enlightening, and a joy to read” —The Bloomsbury Review

 "I admire the gentle simplicity of this book, the way it endeavors to connect us back through the power of story and the healing strength of nature—to the rootedness that so much of the modern world has lost. In our Native traditions we speak of seven generations, how our deeds will affect those who come long after us. A deep understanding of that responsibility is at the heart of The Hoop and the Tree.”

—JOSEPH BRUCHAC, Nulhegan Abenaki Nation, Author of Our Stories Remember and the bestselling Keepers of the Earth series

Ecopsychology is both the skillful application of ecological insight to the practice of psychotherapy and the skillful application of psychological insight to the development of ecological sustainability. It is based on the understanding that a person or society cannot be sane or whole without a respectful, reciprocal relationship with the Earth and all its beings.
