Dr. Travis Cox

Dr. Cox received his Bachelor’s Degree in philosophy, his Master’s Degree in Philosophy, Cosmology, and Consciousness, and his PhD in Sustainable Agriculture where he studied the philosophy of sustainability and used agriculture as a case study.  From there, he taught undergraduate environmental humanities (Environmental Justice, Spirituality and Sustainability, Ecological Philosophy, etc) and researched what he and his colleagues call “deep sustainability.”  It was this research that led him to the field of Ecopsychology and his current job as Associate Professor in the Ecopsychology Master’s Program at Naropa University, where he is also a Naropa faculty board member.

Dr. Cox began his academic study of consciousness with his Master’s Degree studies and continued this research throughout his career, recently culminated in his emphasis on the role psychedelics will play in humanity’s transition to a sustainable and regenerative future. He was one of the co-organizers of the “Can Exceptional Experiences Save the World” conference at The Center for Process Studies in 2018, which was primarily about psychedelics and sustainability, and was invited to guide at the “Philosophy of Psychedelics” conference at the University of Exeter in the UK, which was postponed due to COVID-19.
