About

Kathy Stanley: Spiritual Life Coach, Spiritual Ecology and Ecopsychology instructor, Creative Arts Facilitator, Writer and Environmental Activist.KathyStanley2012

As a spiritual life coach I offer empowering sessions for seekers waking up to the sacred within themselves or those longing for deeper connection with their soulful nature. For over 20 years I have studied with a wide variety of teachers in the fields of enlightenment, shamanism, meditation, ecopsychology and women’s spirituality.

I also teach ecopsychology and spiritual ecology and I offer eco-therapeutic practices and workshops that help to build eco-resilience in this time of ecological uncertainty. I was drawn to this work as I have felt an intimate kinship with animals from childhood, and it has been in the presence of animals and wild places in nature where I have felt the most joy and connection with life, and where I have felt personal transformation and an acceleration of my spiritual growth. Gaia, the great earth goddess, has been my primary spiritual guide. I believe that all the earth is sacred. I join joyfully in the many movements that are bringing back the remembrance of this sanctity of the earth. Some indigenous cultures have never lost this knowledge and I acknowledge and learn from their deep wisdom on this. But the Western mind is sorely in need of a re-connection with the spirit of Gaia and I see this work as part of my dharma, or my life’s vocation. I believe that earth’s shakti— her power and energy, is rising within us as we strive as a species to re-kindle our relationship with her and bring ourselves back into balance and sustainability with her biosphere. Working on ways that we can support the environment and strengthening our relationship with the earth are the medicine that will get us through these times. We are creatures that need to be in communion with the earth.
