One of the founding fathers of what has come to be popularly known as ecopsychology, Robert Greenway is a prolific writer who has published many seminal articles and contributions to books that have influenced the field.
His entire life reads like a list of the “Who’s Who” greats of our time (read more in his life summary document here).
A retired journalist and educator, Robert currently spends his days communing with the garlic on his small-scale organic farm, continuing to serve as thinking partner, muse, and mentor to many of the current crop of Ecopsychology writers, and working on his own book.
