Animist Psychology eBook

Animist Psychology bridges the gap between psychology and spirituality, incorporating and deepening the natural relationships we have with the land, spirits, and other non-human beings as sources of healing and well-being

In this introductory eBook, Dr. Daniel Foor explores concepts and applications for mental health professionals, students of psychology, and anyone interested in the intersections of ritual, culture, and psyche. Dr. Foor is a licensed marriage and family therapist, experienced ritualist and teacher, and he is committed to guiding people to bring supportive relationships with other-than-humans into our life experience. 

His framework of Animist Psychology provides tools to identify and work with important relational, psychological, and cultural dynamics in our personal lives and communities of practice.

I know in my heart, that healing these spirits, hungry ghosts and ancestors is more than just a spiritual practice. That doing this work has solid, tangible effects on our world today.
