A Report From a Course Participant:
"Counseling and teaching as an academic and clinical disciplines have never lived up to their potential. The field of alternative Counseling has especially disappointing. Although we have learned about conformity, cognitive dissonance, group behavior, and other areas of interest in studies of large groups there has been little effect in developing technologies or ideas that could solve many of the world's problems. War, famine, poverty, mental illness, health problems and the declining environment are more existent than ever before.
Teaching and Counseling have contributed much to our understanding of human psychopathology and behavior if you believe our leaders in the field. Yet mental illness is as prevalent as ever and acts of insanity (terrorism toward our fellow human beings etc) seem to occur every day. The advent of new drugs has been a boom for the drug companies. Yet they are expensive with many side effects, rarely "cure" the mental illness, and the incidence of depression in our world continues to grow.
Experimentalists, especially those who work with animal behavior, would state their career education and training has taught them much about animal behavior through their experiments and observation. Yet a cage is not a natural environment for an animal -life within a cage may be all the psychologist or animal knows. Many of these experiments are "controlled" in the lab with little if any real natural surrounding. Unlike holistic human research subjects animals do not sign "consent forms". They have not given permission to be there. Can we really accept these findings as applicable to human life given the unnatural state they are researched in?
This outstanding online degree course showed us how the perceptual observations of traditional counselors and teachers are often based on faulty thinking. There was sustainable education in how and why the nature-connecting process works. Yet these readings would be meaningless unless we had a way to validate them through our own experiences. Traditional learning has relied basically on 2 senses-cognition and feeling. Education is essentially a verbal process. Although silence can be used as a learning tool rarely are any other senses utilized.
The process undertaken in our course involved going to a natural area, identifying what was attractive to you, asking permission to be there and share in the interaction. One was to reconnect with nature and sense the intelligence. These connections were shared with others and -meant to inspire. As we felt the positives of nature and realized these natural attractions also exist in us we improved self-esteem and respect for ourselves, others, and our environment."
"This is the course that every civilized person will be required to take if we are
....to reverse our runaway disorders."

"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."
In industrial society our excessively nature-separated lives mold us to betray the natural psychic pulse. We learn to block from our thinking over 95 percent of the wise sensory callings and fulfillments we normally receive from natural systems and their eons. Our hurt and frustration from the severed disconnection of these senses underlies our greatest troubles.
