A trained Adlerian, I veered away from all three schools of thought in psychotherapy to embrace Ecopsychology. Power in ecopsychology means power to align with nature’s wisdom as Einstein/Sagan/John Muir, et al., have described. The question of suffering is solved with evolution, those who best adapt to the environment (not to dominate, but to cooperate) are most successful at using power ‘to’, rather than power’ over.’

FN was onto this idea, although he is very misunderstood. Religion that sees life as sacred does not dwell on an afterlife, but can discover harmony with actual life and how life works. He also immersed himself in nature for healing.
