Dr. Elizabeth Heilman is a Professor in the School of Education at Wichita State University and co-founder of Regenerative Wisdom. Dr. Heilman and her husband Dale Strickler live in Iola, Kansas a short distance from Dale’s family farm. Dr. Heilman researches how the most socially powerful belief systems are formed and the psychological, cultural, and political factors that shape them. Her current work focuses on what is most needed educationally and socially to foster sustainable human flourishing, which includes understanding the connection to environmental ecology, emotional ecology, regenerative agriculture, and food systems. Dr. Heilman will also discuss the concept of safety trauma as a form of emotional ecology and how that shapes adoption and implementation of change behaviors and everyday practices. Dr. Heilman wrote a recent article for the Green Cover Soil Health Resource Guide titled “Regenerative Agriculture: The Secret to Farmer Happiness.”
