Author's Bio

Chris Hoffman is an ecopsychologist, poet, and climate activist with a professional background in organization development (applied group psychology) and counseling.

Chris is the author of many books of poetry. His poems have appeared in national publications and in several anthologies. His poetry speaks of nature, love, intimacy, and the spiritual quest.  His ecopsychology book, The Hoop and the Tree: A Compass for Finding a Deeper Relationship with All Life, has recently been re-released in a twentieth anniversary edition with a whole new chapter essential for our times.

As an organization development consultant and licensed professional counselor, Chris has worked in a variety of clinical and organizational settings, including consulting with a Fortune 500 energy company (from union level to executive), counseling at mental health agencies, and teaching ecopsychology at Naropa University.
