Eutierria (prefix "eu" from the Greek for "good"; root "tierra" meaning earth). A term coined by environmental philosopher Glenn Albrecht, meaning a good and positive feeling of oneness with the earth and its life forces, arising when the human-nature relationship is spontaneous and mutually enriching or symbiotic.
Says psychologist Kenneth Worthy, Ph.D., "Eutierria helps us transgress our individualistic, isolated experience of the world by feeling we are one with nature, even when we arrive at it through intensely focused [and subjective] sensory experience."
Sounds about right. Another shot from this weekend's park cleanup with @astoriaparkalliance and @astoryofastoria. #thepursuitofscience
