Tom Henfrey

I am a writer and action researcher in human ecology, grassroots sustainability activist and eco-social designer, and teacher and practitioner of core shamanism. I hold a Ph.D in Environmental Anthropology, a Diploma in Applied Permaculture Design, and am a certified teacher of permaculture and shamanism. My several decades of professional experience span academic, community and NGO settings, including working at local-regional, national and international levels.
