94.1FM, KPFA.org—About Health

As seen on a Sussex Directories Inc site

Dr. Ariane Eroy is a psychodynamic and transpersonal psychologist who has spent 25 years working in community mental health clinics. (Her academic research focused on prisoner re-entry.) Her understanding is not merely informed by psychoanalytic psychology, politics, and the environment but also yoga, the works of Gurdjieff and Ouspensky’s Fourth Way, Alice Bailey’s Theosophy, the writings of Benjamin Creme, and the Masters of Wisdom on Esoteric Christianity.

She believes that modern psychology needs to foster diverse kinds of healing, and promote each individual’s evolutionary trajectory, as well as explore the psychological meaning underpinning social change. 

Dr. Eroy maintains that the symbolic nature of events provides us with essential keys to our times.  These keys can fortify us, while clarifying what is ours to do– especially in light of the the Climate Emergency, and as more and more people strategically work towards establishing peace, justice, and sharing moving forward.

We can’t tackle the Climate Emergency, Health Disparities, and Social Justice in isolation. We need to look at policies and approaches that promote health and well being for individuals, communities, and the world.
