Eco-Art Administrators

The NATURAL WORLD is the Teacher!

 

Dr. Stacey S. Mallory, Eco-Art Director and Instructor

Life is a continuum of learning! I have completed various studies and several Masters degrees during my lifetime. In addition to this training, I completed a Master's degree and Doctorate in Applied Ecopsychology with the integration of Eco-Art Therapy. I have co-authored several books with Dr. Michael Cohen for Project NatureConnect. I have been with Project NatureConnect/Eco-Art Therapy for nearly 15 years. I am attracted to advocating for and being a voice againist abuse(s). As a result, most of my life's work has led me to address a vast numbner of abuse(s). It is possible for us to find unique supportive pathways free of any abuse(s) committed against Nature/Humans.

I am grateful for every moment I can connect with some part of Nature. I am deeply attracted to experiences that expand my environmental attractions! I enjoy gardening, bird watching, creating art, and simply….creating! I appreciate Nature's unconditional love and the support it brings to our inner child and spirit. I believe everyone has the right to find their unique selves. The more people I meet or work with teach me; that we are strong, cooperative, love unconditionally, and supportive. As a result, we enable the whole to become more stronger.

Norma, Eco-Art Director and Instructor

Norma has completed her certificate in Eco-Art Therapy, a Master’s in Applied Ecopsychology, and is a PhD Canidate with Project NatureConnect. (only a dissertation away, go girl!)

She is a responsible, trustworthy, down to earth person that is family oriented, respects natural beings of all sorts, and being part of a supportive community that seeks honest and sustainable lifestyles. She was raised in a close-knit community in a Northern Maine farming town where residents always supported each other in times of need and times of joy. If someone was to search for her they would find her coloring in a book, sewing , outside up in a tree, wading in a field of wildflowers, hiking, playing in the woods, or even laying on the ground watching clouds go by or watching stars move across the sky. She was super active in various sports and believed in team work and supporting each other. Peace was found in just being with nature and listening, talking, and making up stories. Nature… was far more interactive than playing with dolls.

She took her skill of photography and graphic arts into college, toyed with computer science, only to be guided back to her true joy of seeing life through the eye of a camera and graduating with an Art Degree and Liberal Arts Degree. Her curiosity to explore life led in many directions, 9-5 professions attached to a desk were abandoned as Nature continued calling to come back outside and be free. Every profession was a new hands on experience and adventure from white water rafting, volunteer firefighting, working for a state park, working at a TV station and direction her own PSA’s, a compassionate nuisance wildlife control operator, even being a rescuer of injured or orphaned wildlife. The list goes on with so many other diverse and life altering professions including working for a couple police departments and using her influence to educate living with natural beings, protecting the environment, and having kindness, compassion, understanding, and empathy for all life. Interestingly enough, because she was proactive there were more handshakes and hugs than fury from those who did get arrest by her, perhaps because people sometimes need to be understood for reasons why they behaved with poor judgement in a given moment rather than stigmatize them for it. A dog can bite not because it is vicious but because it is scared, the bite shouldn’t be a death sentence.

Her joys unite some of her passions like photography, the study of animal and human behavior, being a reiki master, art, poetry, research, humane education, animal assisted therapy, and above all reconnecting mentally, emotionally, and spiritually with natural beings and Nature as a whole. She is a lover of life and interesting rocks too. If she is not gazing into the eyes of some other consenting being she is using her hands to create something special or her heart to write something thoughtful that might help bring a smile to another person. If she was to be defined it would be as a friend not a title as labels mean nothing in the natural world.

Finally, many of her professions required a knowing of many aspects about Nature beyond being beautiful. When working for a police department curiosity for all life allowed her to seek answers to why a situation was, so she searched for facts in order to be able to see deeper for hidden truths, rather than stories, beliefs, or bias of why there was a complaint. In addition, the most important part was to help bridge a gap and restore understanding, communication, acceptance, peace, and compassion not just with or for the community, but neighbors, family, the environment, and nature. Life is important, and to hold on to negative beliefs and stories only destroys lives and our own health. So now she wears a new hat as a healer and co-conspiritor with Nature to heal hearts, restore smiles, and help release negativity not just externally but internally.
