Unpsychology Magazine - A journal of post-civilised neurodiversity and wild mind
Unpsychology is an attempt to scavenge our own consciousness from the ruins of industrial civilisation. To trace a path through our current climate crisis of the mind, and find ways of living in whatever lies beyond.
At the Uncivilisation festival this year there was a lot of talk - and two well attended sessions - on unpsychology and…Continue
“The only way to change the world is to change the story.”
We know only too well the story that defines our world today. It is a tale of consumerism and greed, sustained by the empty but enticing promise of an endless stream of “stuff” as the source of our happiness and wellbeing. We are finally coming to recognize the model of an ever-expanding economy on which that promise is predicated as an unsustainable myth, the domination of nature required to fulfill it as a…Continue
Tall firs and hemlocks breathe aloud with the storm
Limbs scrape and groan, dancing in the gusts
Cedar boughs droop to shed the rain
A deluge in sheets, riding the wind
Circling currents, far out to sea
and miles above, the jetstream flow
join forces to send this storm our way
But here on the ground, among the trees
I know only the wet and cold
and that I am alive, as are they

You'll find me on a peninsula right outside Oslo, and I could most of the time provide you with food and shelter for a couple of days. Or you could make your own food if you prefer.
I also invited you people…Continue

The deepest truth is like Sasquatch, belief only comes through seeing it for yourself.

The blackberries are ripe in Farnham Park, and this afternoon saw small groups of individuals with tupperware boxes scavanging the miles of brambles for this seasonal treat.
I was out with the children on Thursday. We left the house armed with ice-cream boxes, and returned two hours later with black berries that I quickly converted to 6 jars of jam. I should at this point start to wax lyrical about wild food; yet I was aware that - while inspired by Dark Mountain - making this jam…Continue
Free will is the river carving the channel that guides its flowing.

Unpsychology is a human community – all humans are welcome. It's a non-human community too - all non-humans must be held and privileged in an ecology of mind.
Humans – each of us – develop throughout all our life. However, some keep the blindfolds on and don't face the truth. Unpsychology asks that we each develop to the highest possible version of our selves.
Unpsychology has three human fundamentals – original soul, social animal and ecological mind – all…Continue

Bill McKibben's recent essay, A Movement For A New Planet, is a brilliant response of hope to the hopelessness in Michael Klare's recent essay, How To Fry A Planet. But can it be done? Is there time? Just as the movement gains momentum the honey (rhymes with money) grabbers have become bolder than ever, unrelenting in their rapaciousness. For every Resistance action, Big Money piles on aggressively with even greater force. The honey is way too sweet to…Continue

Returned from Uncivilisation in Sunday night to my granddaughter, faery-child and one-year old walker Freya - who was staying at our place.
Here's a poem I posted on psycho-bubblea few weeks back that seems appropriate to both happenings:
That someone might say of me, as they said of you,
that your poetry was a flag of…

In the face of an insatiable geometry, even the vastness of space will, in a few short generations, prove as flat as the Earth.
I work for a project called Re-imagining the Sacred, which is a series of public talks on how we can bring a notion of the sacred into life in a way that works for everyone. There are a number of different themes, education and economics being two examples, and if anyone is interested please visit our website. Also, follow the organisation I work for on twitter: @StEthelburgas.
