"Scientifically (our Standard way of knowing), the
Big Bang was and is the
holistic and unified aliveness dance of
our Universe loving itself into being from 13.7 billion years ago into
this moment and the next. The healing and unifying power dance of its natural
continually strengthens through attractive diversity across the eons.
It is important to learn how to scientifically validate our
54 self-evident natural attraction senses. They are the part of
the Nature/Earth that connect us with, register and make our body, mind and spirit consciously at one with
. This enables us to better produce the cooperation, peace and
of our whole life relationships with our planet and each other.
Are you attracted to reading the next sentence? As part of the
Standard Universe this attraction is your sense of consciousness
registering the unified field in action in this moment. Your
attraction to do this did not come from nowhere. As Albert Einstein
predicted, it is the unifying eternal
essence of how the time and space of Nature/Earth/Universe have produced themselves since
their beginning. Natural attraction is the heart of nature's balance and beauty.
18 month ECHN training program helps you make your next moment in life
more reasonable. In natural areas, backyard or backcountry, you
master how to let your sensory natural attractions wisely compost and
recycle the nature-disconnected pollution in our body mind and spirit
and help others do this, too."
Michael J. Cohen
To empower the public to use nature-connected
education, counseling and healing to promote peace by increasing unification, sustainability,
balance and wellness.
A Major Challenge:
In Industrial Society, on average, over 95 percent of our time and
99 percent of our thoughts, feelings and relationship are separated
from and out of tune with the eons of authentic nature’s ways and their
perfection. This excessive disconnection stresses and injures our
congress of 54 natural attraction senses that maintain our body, mind
spirit in unified balance. It results in corrupted thinking and relationships.
To our loss, we are all habitually bonded or addicted (attached) to
something because part our personhood is excessively disconnected from its
origins and purity in Nature's Standard Universe. This stressful,
fractionalizing separation hurtfully pollutes our thinking and relationships. We feel
the pain and we attach to artificial things that relieve it, things
that have destructive personal and environmental side effects.
We suffer our problems because our Earth disconnected selves are are sentiently bonded and supported
to immediate gratification sources along with their detrimental
If you don't believe this is true, just try to
change these relationships.
We are indoctrinated to omit Nature’s
restorative ways in most of our thinking, feeling and relationships
with people, materials and technologies. This leaves us unable to reverse our detrimental
addictions and their destructiveness. The adverse results speak for themselves,
in and around us.
Our formal and informal education has socialized us to produce the
excessively stressed, fractionalized and unbalanced way of life we experience today.
The time spent in our autobiographical ECHN program involves the
student in environmentally and socially responsible counseling and
education. It offsets and re-educates
the moments of our prior nature-disconnected learning that has us continue to produce and suffer our unsolvable problems
Rationale and Evidence:
As noted in the book Educating, Counseling and Healing With Nature
to successfully address the destructive aspects of contemporary
socialization, beginning in 1965, for twenty years my one-year long,
self-organized, educational outdoor expeditions into natural areas
helped their 20-member, close knit communities recognize that they
enjoyed a profound kinship with our living Planet
Via conscious sensory contact with authentic Earth/Nature they
discovered how to create unifying, restorative moments that let Earth teach them
how to live in balance with Nature's eons of self-correcting wisdom.
This 18 month Albert Einstein
Sensory Ecology degree and training program provides Organic Psychology
methods and materials that help its participants, today, create
personal expeditions for themselves at home, work or school in order to
achieve community supported, nature-connected, beneficial
outcomes. This is done in conjunction with interested members of
their local and social media friends along with online leadership, support and
mentoring programs from Project NatureConnect.
As described below, students in this special program examine their
experiences, from early childhood to the present, through
nature-connected readings and activities that they do that are offered
in the program's PNC books and Website articles. They share the
resulting changes and benefits that they discover with supportive folks
in their associated community of friends, on-site or online, and mentor
these individuals in this work, too. The
time and space they make to complete this unifying journey is the key
transformation process that is presently missing in our contemporary
For a degree the student produces a self-evident, present tense autobiography that
describes and validates their life experiences on the 18 month journey and
creates a project that furthers their ability to benefit others and
themselves with its process.
From 50 years of research and experience, Project NatureConnect has
developed a new social technology, a Standard Universe Natural
Attraction Sensory Ecology Model. Applying its self-evident sensory science to our fractional relationships is a
that enables society to increase personal, social and environmental
The Model helps you and the world to come back into
sustainable natural equilibrium and happiness. It enables the
public to learn how to think, feel and relate to Earth and its
recycling powers. It makes it possible for us to more effectively address our
destructive attachments and
transform them into fair, organic relationships.
ECHN gives an individual or group the ability to make time and space for
unified attraction dance to increase well being, in and around us. We
learn to be better
dancers by creating moments that let Earth teach us what it knows we
need to know to increase well-being. It is doable in a peaceful way.

A sample Autobiography
Eco 501, Activity 7, RWN, my Unity Walk With Nature.
"Its 25 years ago; I am 4 years
old and I hear my mother calling me to come inside but I'm so enjoying
making mud pies that I say no and don't pay attention to her request.
She comes out to get
me and is annoyed that I have mud all over me and that I didn't listen
her. I feel sad, ashamed and abandoned, I fear I have lost her
Via ECHN I explain to her that my Literate Body is more
attracted to the call of my Other/Earth Body to fulfill my senses of
play, color, texture, community, trust, motion, form and happiness plus
the 5 senses (yes I have eaten a little mud) than missing them while I
am in the house. For this reason, I explain to her, my NNIAAL
Bio/SUNNEH-54 (NNIAAL Equation
) GreenWave moment
senses of time, place
and reason and consciousness are telling me that I can come in a bit
later without any
harm and I have unified my two bodies by staying out when she first
said to come in. 'Mom, can you be more aware, understanding and
supportive of these
callings from my other body/Earth? Can we ride the GreenWave together for a few minutes. Maybe you will feel them too
and be less stressed and annoyed which
will be better for both of us. Let's do an Earth-connecting ECHN
activity together and see if it helps.' "
Validation: As I come into this moment by consciously taking a deep
breath to get on the GreenWave, I appreciate the fact that I no longer fear abandonment by
others when NNIAAL makes more sense than they do and I can try to help
NNIAAL in them understand what I am feeling or have done. I appreciate
making this gain and being able to help others do the same.
My mentor has shared she has had the same experience and I feel support
from her for that. I'm not a crazy as I thought, or at least I'm not
