Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapy (MBE) is a blending of mindfulness and ecotherapy. MBE uses nature to facilitate mindful awareness. MBE is used as a framework for helping individuals and families to find deeper connections in their own lives, and to give more meaning and enjoyment to the activities of daily living.

The Mindful Ecotherapy Center trains professionals to facilitate the 12-week Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapy (MBE) program. If you become certified as a MBE Facilitator, you will be listed for free in this directory.

The 16-session Ecospirituality progam is based on Joseph Campbell’s Monomyth, sometimes referred to as the Hero’s Journey. In this 16-week program, the spirit of Coyote, the Trickster, leads participants through a journey of self-discovery using nature as a guide and mentor.

The Ecospirituality progam contains the skills of Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapy plus much more material. While the Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapy Facilitator Certification program is geared towards licensed mental health professionals, the Ecospirituality Coaching Certification training program is open to anyone who has an interest in learning and teaching the skills of Ecospirituality.

Henrik Hallgren is an eco-activist, storyteller and educator in ecopsychology. As such, he roams in the borderlands between politics, spirituality, ecology, poetry, and philosophy. In all his work, Henrik proceeds from the starting point and the conviction that climate change and other ecological crises is a symptom of a broader “culture of disconnection” and that we as a society has to involve in a deep cultural therapy to heal the relationship between humans and the rest of nature. Henrik is founder of Lodyn – a non-governmental organization and think tank engaged in ecopsychology, nature awareness and activism. He is author of several books and has an academic background in archaeology, social anthropology and museology.
