The course culminates with a live interactive 2-hour Webinar led by VGI Instructor. You see and hear your fellow classmates in real time with HD video to discuss the ideas presented in the lectures.

Student Testimonials for the course:

As a depth psychotherapist, the material learned in this course is directly applicable to my therapeutic work with clients.

The course was beautifully constructed!  The instructor presented the material with a clarity and passion that engaged the participants on a deeply relational level – relational both personally and globally.

The most valuable part of this course was the multi-faceted levels of the material.  Presentations and discussions centered the need for consciousness in order to make changes necessary for survival, and diversity of all sorts as part of our internal and external ecosystem.

I was engaged and learning throughout this course.  There was nothing presented that has not deepened my curiosity and respect for this subject.

I thoroughly enjoyed myself and greatly benefited from an affordable and accessible way to offer some fertilizer to the perennial plants in my ecopsychological garden. I can already feel the roots going a bit deeper!
