Marcia Eleanor Phillips Retired Park Ranger-Naturalist
I am a retired park ranger/naturalist. I worked for 30 years as a teacher and guide in the US national parks - giving guided walks and evening slide presentations on geology, ecology, and botany. The central focus of my work has always been on healing the split between humanity and the natural systems of the Earth. To that end, I sought out and completed a master of science degree in Holistic Science from Schumacher College, Devon, United Kingdom. The field of study for this program included Gaia Theory, Chaos and Complexity, Endosymbiosis, and Formative Causation. I now seek to express in my writing the richness and depth of a lifetime spent with natural things, during which I gained a perception of the deeper concerns of ecological thought.
