"Forming a community online and understanding our belonging within and contribution to that community is one of the huge transformation aspects of this program.  If we were not part of this journey together I would have sat and read about and done all of these activities on my own and then wrote in my journal about my experiences. But, it's obvious that neither you or I would not have gained half as much validation, insight, confirmation, and better understanding of ourselves, each other and how nature really works.  Being inspired by each one of your posts and the reactions and comments that you gave me made the sense of belonging within a larger community a critical part of this learning process."

- Anonymous Project NatureConnect Participant


Starting with our online Orientation Course, this Applied Ecopsychology, holistic degree and multiple sensory growth program includes each student's life experience and prior training.

The training consists of learning and teaching lessons about nature-connected, independent group thinking and language skills that produce out-of-the-box innovation and master problem solving.

Students come from many religions and philosophies or from no religious background.  However, by energizing into consciousness our excessively subdued 53 natural senses and sensibilities, the program supports and strengthens connections between nature and spirit.

Unlike most traditional education efforts, each participant learns to become, and then becomes an intern, resident, guide or mentor that helps others exchange messages and observations obtained by creating moments that let Earth teach. Ours is an online accredited expedition process that increases critical thinking wisdom by obtaining sensory information about how nature's powers work, in and around us.

Person to person explorations and discoveries of the opportunities available in this program are the best way to learn about it. To this end, browse through this website (for credit) and then phone us to see how we can best serve your special interests.

Learn what you really want to know in less than ten minutes.  Call Mike 360-378-6313 or email us a note with your phone number and we'll call you.

The shared course work heightens natural individual and community contact to afford accreditation and connection with authentic nature and its powers. The process includes credit or waivers for equivalent training. This strengthens credibility for knowing how to increase personal, social and environmental well being.

The program's hands-on whole earth and whole life activities provide unadulterated contact with the dance of nature's grace, balance and restorative powers, in and around us, backyard or back country. Its professional and personal remedies address destructive emotional bonds and attachments. It helps us benefit from attaining Applied Ecopsychology degrees or nature-connected Organic Psychology certification that can be added to any livelihood or relationship.

Project NatureConnect
Applied Ecopsychology Training for a Degree, Certification or Personal Use



Throughout its history since 1945, "Project NatureConnect" programs have self-directed and regulated themselves via community meetings that include nature's intelligence and the best sensory thinking of leaders and participants.  Together, the participants have shared their thoughts and feelings to make sensible decisions about the most wise and rewarding way to make their day, program or life happen. 

The attractive interpersonal exchange of information on the program is the same, cooperative, self-organizing process by which nature works without using words.  Throughout the eons, moment by moment, non-verbally, nature's attraction essence has, attraction by attraction, grown and sustained its self-correcting and balanced ways.

Nature can be seen as a experimental space and time expedition dance of its own through the eons.
As part of nature, we inherit this ability and our course work helps us become conscious of it and apply it.

On our courses, in natural areas backyard or backcountry, people of all ages share their natural attraction thoughts and feelings. This gives their natural senses the time and place to safely express themselves, to listen and be heard in conjunction with authentic nature. This is the core expedition of the online degree, course and certificate programs of Project NatureConnect at the Institute of Global Education and the Akamai University Applied Ecopsychology Institute.

"One of the best parts about this program and its insights is to naturally bring about an internal shift to live in a community way where others have the space to transform and have a similar shift.   Spreading the gift of wholeness is a life long pursuit of being in the present moment so as to create a deepening connection to life that is happening now for others to share."

Most people learn more powerfully through one-on-one questioning, mentoring and exploration of topics than by reading instructions alone, no matter how precise the instructions are.  It is often a mistake to believe that the totality of this custom-oriented program and its administration can be mastered without the occasional use of a telephone to obtain or confirm information

No need to be shy.  We are dedicated to support and enable individuals who want to help increase personal, social and environmental well-being.  We invite and welcome you to learn what you want to know about this program in less than ten minutes...and even more than ten if you so choose.  After you have explored this website, call Mike 360-378-6313 or email us a note with your phone number and we'll call you in the USA.


In 1968, Dr. Michael J. Cohen's astonishing environmental education program became a year long, accredited outdoor expedition traveling classroom, the Trailside Country School.  This occurred because Cohen translated and published as courses the knowledge in the school community that was gained from its history. It established a new, self-designed and implemented nature-connected curriculum in natural areas across the U.S.A. As described below, the sensory process it developed enabled its students to co-create ideal living and learning relationships in conjunction with natural areas.

Cohen's translation of the program became descriptions and syllabi of courses in Biology, Natural History, Psychology, Group Dynamics, Anthropology, English etc. 

Because of its phenomenal results, the school was recognized as being a wisely integrated form of education in balance and it was invited to become the National Audubon Society Expedition Institute in 1978. Its courses were published in catalogs and, in time, regionally accredited by the University of the State of New York and Lesley University Graduate School. They were accepted in over 1500 college and university degree programs.

At the time of the school's inception (1968), Ecopsychology had not been "invented."  Degrees were in Environmental Education and Psychology. Cohen's course that came closest to applying Ecopsychology was entitled "An Objective Search for Mother Earth."

The programs were based on learning how to genuinely connect with nature as community, to be able to register and consciously think and feel with the renewing dance of nature and our living Earth, in and around us.

...."Through natural attraction sensations and feelings that were energized into consciousness through sensory contacts in natural areas, young or old, students and staff alike learned to respect the web-of-life community and themselves as part of it. Nature taught them to enjoy, validate and incorporate the self-correcting wisdom of the web in their thinking and feeling. Earth was viewed to act like, or be, a living organism.

The National Audubon Society identified the Trailside Country School program as the most revolutionary form of education in America and selected it to be an Audubon program out of 116 programs that were considered for sponsorship.  In the Trailside/Audubon programs:
  • ....Chemical dependencies, including alcohol and tobacco, disappeared as did destructive social relationships.
  • ....Personality and eating disorders subsided; violence, crime and prejudice were unknown.
  • ....Academics improved because they were applicable, hands-on and fun.
  • ....Loneliness, hostility and depression subsided. Group interactions encouraged stress release and management; each day was fulfilling and relatively peaceful.
  • ....Participants using meditation found they could enhance it, or not need it, as they helped build their nature-connected community.
  • ....Participants knew each other better than they knew their families or best friends. They felt safe and developed the resilience to express and act from their deeper thoughts and feelings. A profound sense of social and environmental responsibility guided their decisions.
  • ....When vacation periods arrived, neither staff nor student wanted to go home. Each person had enjoyably worked to build this supportive, balanced living and learning group. They were home."

- Cohen, Michael J.  Integrated Ecology: The Process of Counseling With Nature, American Psychological Association, The Humanistic Psychologist Vol 21, August 1993

Something important to think about:

Personally, socially and environmentally, many destructive aspects of Industrial Society continue, unabated, to place life on earth at risk and stress us. It is not due to a lack of information that this is taking place. It is more like an addiction to the mind- polluting process that conditions us to think, feel and build irresponsible relationships, even when we don't want to.

It is critical that we identify and support individuals who appreciate or love nature and whose consciousness recognizes the value of bringing nature's unadulterated purity, balance and renewing powers into our nature-estranged mentality.  For this reason, Project NatureConnect and its cooperating programs subsidize the costs of their Applied Ecopsychology training program and provide financial assistance that makes it affordable for any qualified candidate to benefit from, learn and teach the art and science of educating, counseling and healing with nature.

Are the experts, below and
elsewhere, incorrect in their observations of this program and its values? Or, instead, do we suffer because Industrial Society has destructively strayed from the tools offered by the study of sensory ecotherapy, tools that help us live in peaceful balance with nature, in and around us?

"The activities work, they move students. I see significant improvement in their self-esteem and value. They find something outside themselves that is actually a truth within themselves."

- Mark Walsh
Director of Wilderness Therapy, Hyde Psychiatric Hospital

"Contains a strong sense of commitment to bed rock values and to the human spirit...a willingness to live out beliefs, to experience life...a system of thinking that can be very very useful for many people who have never given much thought to their place in the cosmic order... a way to feel connected to the universe and strengthen a sense of personal identity."

- Maria West, M.S.W., Counselor

"How important Project NatureConnect's guidebooks, workshops and activities have been to us. Its straightforward, unembroidered perceptions are as refreshing and clear as a mountain lake. It's a joy, for it unifies rather than polarizes. It effectively speaks to modern problems with modern knowledge, skills and language."

The Gowland Foundation, Victoria, British Columbia.

"It's great. He's s right to make the responsibility for living on good terms with Gaia a personal one."

"Mike Cohen has instilled in his students an awareness of nature and its workings that few will come close to in years of concentration."

Today, the
expedition cooperative community learning process, described above, is translated into the Project NatureConnect distant learning training, course and degree program. It is a living system consisting of all its participants in contact with nature.  They are also guides, mentors and faculty, a system sustained, in part, by Internet communication.

The courses and the degree requirements are published, recognized and approved as are any other university graduate or undergraduate classroom courses and degrees.  However, the course work is learned and achieved, online, through the unique natural attraction ecology shared learning process, described above.

Like climbing a mountain on an unexplored path, every member of the program is roped into everyone else so individually and collectively, we and the program succeed by dedicating ourselves to learn about life in balance from contact with the mountain, not from stories about it by unbalanced folks who have not taken our route to discover what the mountain is attracted to tell us about itself, and ourselves as part of it.  The secret to our success is that the mountain is attracted to build a good relationship with us because that is how the essence of nature works.

An individual needs training but does not need certification or a degree, to learn the ECHN process or to use and teach its sensory nature-connecting individual activities.  The activities are as as much fun and experiential as learning to play the game of "Hide and Seek." Their added value is that we seek the hidden secrets of life in balance that we biologically inherit as part of nature and whose intelligence is still alive and well in authentic nature, backyard or backcountry.  Our form of the "Hide and Seek" reasonably reconnects and interlaces humanity's natural senses (that are continuums of nature, moment by moment,) with their origins in nature and its eons in the natural environment. The results speak for themselves. Visit our survey of participant links and key web pages.  

By using the Internet instead of meeting in person, the means of educating, counseling and healing with nature parallel the self-organizing, cooperative group, hands-on, mentor process that made Cohen's expedition education programs work so successfully.  The critical ingredient is to want to be participate in the dance of this natural attraction process, to be there for it and support it in whatever way you can contribute. Your reward is that nature's balance and purifying powers in people and places will do the same for you.

"I appreciate this program from the bottom of my heart. It helps me bridge the love of nature and life itself that has cradled me since birth with my work as a therapist. And it provides a workable translation of Indigenous healing that my elders taught, to my clients and students. It is accessible and doable for everyone! I love the way the program itself is an organism that is whole, alive, gentle and kind. Thanks for being here, everyone."

All the faculty at IGE Project NatureConnect are also faculty at Akamai University. In the online Akamai Applied Ecopsychology Institute program, students and faculty learn how to think like nature's balanced perfection works by doing and sharing nature-connection activities, backyard or backcountry. The activities enable them to create sensory moments that let their mind intermingle with its origins in the purity of natural relationship building and let nature's self-correcting secrets reveal themselves.  It is each individual's conscious sensory contact with nature's flow, in themselves, others and the natural environment, that does the teaching and healing.

Grades are assigned to the published courses. However, the grades are earned by students and faculty evaluating the degree of excellence and cooperation that a student has displayed while working with the total expedition community course participation, academics and administrative processes of the Institute.

The key to mastering our nature-connecting courses or degrees by Internet and email is that each individual, painstakingly makes sure to communicate and obtain consent for their efforts from their classmates and from the total Institute student, guide and mentor community.  Over the Internet and by telephone, their words share what their thoughts and feelings are experiencing, how they are acting, and what they plan to do.  These understandings are then actualized, or they are modified and further consented to by the online community when plans or experiences change.

"I have noticed since co-facilitating three courses and doing my own course work, plus contact on the cooperative community groups, that PNC creates a startlingly, overwhelmingly positive and happy group of people!  I don't think I have ever - in all my years as a therapist, trainer, teacher of supposedly peace enhancing and happiness producing endeavors - seen this much happiness, peace, delight, kindness, good will and NNIAL - especially NNIAL and in a very accessible form - dancing around the pages and lives of this many people.  Thanks!!!!" 

- L.W.


Students officially matriculate into the degree granting University program when their course work is completed.  This is accomplished through a recommendation and transcript by the faculty and students in the Student Cooperative at the Institute.  It is based on the student's involvement with the total process of cooperatively operating and administering the Institute as well as completion of their course work. This learning-by-doing is experiential.

Many of the
cooperative program commitments are parts of a course on how to help other students make and fulfill these commitments as part of the program's learn by experience operation.  A benefit of this learning by doing and being process is that it keeps tuition fees about 85 percent lower than degrees obtained elsewhere.

Without exception, students who have been recommended by the PNC program for matriculation into the degree program have very successfully completed their degrees.

"The investment to my degree(s) is definitely an enormous benefit not only in the incalculable personal knowledge and growth it provided but professionally as well. Now that I have an active psychotherapy practice it has become an enormous professional advantage.

1.  I am much better equipped to help my clients by using NSTP principles and the primary underpinning for my work.

2.  I am more confident and assured as a therapist so I enjoy my work now immensely. I always look forward to seeing my clients.  Clearly these first two are directly related.

3.  The world is infinitely more receptive to me as a PhD applied ecopsychologist. Even though I am not a “licensed” psychologist, and never claim to be, just the word and the three little letters open doors and provide credibility that my Applied Ecopsychology ability alone can never attain. This is perhaps not at is should be per se, but it is certainly a marvelous asset."

Short overview article http://www.ecopsych.com/hallucinatearticle.html


"After reading the homepage and links of interest there, I called Dr. Cohen and he soon returned it. By phone we designed a program plan that met my special goal. To more powerfully help people, I wanted to add Organic Psychology to my skills as a registered nurse. 

It was great to discover that my life experience and training made me eligible to get an MS equivalence so I could consider doing either an MS or a PhD program, or I could just take courses and offer Organic Psychology to my clients by being Certified in it.

Organic Psychology is one of several names that have, over the past half century, been used to describe this program.  Others include Natural Systems Thinking Process, Natural Attraction Ecology and Applied Ecopsychology.

I knew the program was right for me as I read through and responded to the survey of participants pages and the many links to them there, where the participants describe their experiences on the courses and their application of them. 

I received equivalence ratings for several courses whose requirements I had already completed at work and in other training  programs. It felt right that this application of Ecopsychology program recognized that the important things that I learned elsewhere were worthwhile education that deserved credit. After all, they were credible....In fact, I'm licensed in some of them.

Because Organic Psychology acknowledges that natural systems and attractions in us are trustable and honest in their own way, the program roots itself in natural trust and honesty. It walked its talk, it subsidized me financially because I recognized that nature, in and around us, needs our help. We must learn how to tap into, as well as support, rather than injure, natural systems as part of everything we do if we are to increase personal, social and environmental well being. 

I enrolled because I discovered that a friend of mine was meeting the goal of co-creating with nature while he was a Personal Life Coach; he was trained in, and using this Project NatureConnect Applied Ecopsychology online program.

From my visits to the homepage and my phone calls, I was very sure this course would make sense to to me because I looked into the details of its history and results. I accomplished this by obtaining and read the trade published version of its e-book Educating, Counseling and Healing with Nature.

I only paid $150 total for the online Orientation Course and that included the books for it ($70), the Application Fee ($100), and eligibility for additional financial assistance and participation through the program's "Learn Now, Pay Later" plan. Financial assistance was based solely on trust and a contract I made to keep with a payment schedule I designed that fit my needs. I've only payed what I could when I could. I was privileged to do this because people who encourage the program's goals subsidized the remainder of my tuition and, although I've obtained my degree, I still voluntarily contribute to helping pay for it. I like doing this because it makes additional grant money available to other students and keeps the program going, too. I also still participate in the optional work/study program; I help facilitate the courses online and have run some for outpatients at the hospital.

While on the Orientation Course I joined the student cooperative. That put me on a mailing list with all the rest of the 200 or more students and the faculty. Then I just asked the co-op by email what questions I had or what course(s) I was ready to take next and others joined me in taking them. They provided answers to questions and let me know they would take a course with me or help facilitate it.
Via steps 1-15, I just took one course after another and later used them to attain my degree.

After I completed a course, as part of the program I was given the opportunity to co-facilitate another section of the course. This gave me the experience of teaching courses on my own as part of the program.

Half the reading on the courses was the email from other students on the courses with me, about what they were discovering while doing the nature-connecting activities. Our information came from direct sensory contact with natural areas, backyard or backcountry, all over the world, not from the bias of our nature-estranged society. We learned from natural systems how to think and speak with and for them. Although profound, this was simple and enjoyable because we were/are natural systems. We were simply making contact with parts of ourselves and the world that were missing in our nature-disconnected socialization. And we were assured that we knew and could communicate this because we did it, even by email! I used the experiences of my classmates in this regard, as well as my own, to document some of the ideas I made in my final project and its defense for my degree.

The essential thing we learned was how to use simple nature-connecting sensory activities to create moments that let Earth teach us what we wanted to know. How and why this amazing process works is described at http://www.ecopsych.com/transformation.html

Being accepted to the Orientation Course or the Program is easy once you decide that's what you want to do. Simply read the homepage, optionally read or do the ECHN book then call the office, (360-378-6313) and get your questions answered. They'll email you an easy-to-use copy of the application. Complete it, keeping in mind that once you are on the Orientation Course you can go as far as you want in the program and honestly pay what you can afford when you can afford it.

I am now working on facilitating a program that will be part of Nurses Training here. This will enable people on the hospital staff to add applied ecopsychology to their talents and vice versa. They will be able to obtain a degree in this combination if they want one.

The impact and need to learn and teach this Natural Attraction Ecology process is tremendous.  Any civilization worth the name should pay its citizens to master this program, just as any responsible business has in-service training for its employees to achieve excellence in meeting its goals."

"Human behavior is rooted most deeply in nature's intentions and desire. The rhythms of nature underlie all of human interaction: religious traditions, economic systems, cultural and political organization. When these human forms betray the natural psychic pulse, people and societies get sick, nature is exploited and entire species are threatened."

-Stephen Aizenstat


In industrial society our excessively nature-separated lives mold us to betray the natural psychic pulse. We learn to block from our thinking over 98 percent of the wise sensory callings and fulfillments we normally share with natural systems and their eons of experience. Our subconscious hurt and frustration from the severed disconnection of these senses underlies our greatest troubles.
