This page will only be of value to those who are intelligent enough to recognize four major facts:
1. We are part of nature and it sustains the global life community without producing garbage, war or mental illness.
2. Natural systems are self-correcting. They purify and nurture whatever they touch.
3. We unnecessarily suffer disorders because we don't use nature's grace, balance and restorative powers to help us remedy our troubles.
4. We spend, on average, 98 percent of our life indoors, excessively separated from nature. To our loss, our thinking and feeling are severely disconnected from nature's holistic wisdom.
The Organic Solution to Debt and Disorders
Natural systems in the biosphere flow through and nurture all forms of life including the life of our psyche, of how we think and feel.
To our loss, our excessive disconnection from nature separates our consciousness from registering natural systems along with their self-correcting and purifying ways.
Blithely, we spend, on average, 98 percent of our life thinking and feeling while estranged from the satisfying, renewing and regenerative powers of natural systems within and around us.
Because, through our disconnection, we stop the flow natural systems in our psyche, we lose their capacity of to recycle industrial society's contamination of how we think and feel. We, accordingly, suffer great personal and environmental troubles for which society sells us expensive remedies while free antidotes are readily available by reconnecting with nature.
Nature connecting activities offer organic learning and relating that empowers us to remedy our hurtful and expensive disconnection from our natural origins. The activities are advanced social tools that help us make conscious sensory contact with natural systems within and about us. Our thinking and feeling benefit from the cost-free flow of their renewing and regenerative powers.

EVERY MEMBER IS NATURALLY APPRECIATED
An Organic Psychology Report from an Online Course Participant
First I want to say how this much this little email study group is my nourishment and one of my great loves, so thank you. I am a day late because for my activity assignment this week because, as part of it, I took a hike yesterday that turned into a rather large unplanned nature adventure .
The Secrets of Natural Attractions Trail Activity I have done before but what I discovered most beautiful this time is breath.
Actually air is rather beautiful when I reflect upon it because it carries the birds, the clouds, the leaves floating down, the raindrops, the snowflakes, the insects, the mist and it sort of seems to carry the blue sky.
I am rather sensitive to the freshness of the air I breathe because I get migraine headaches and especially notice chemical smells. At night when we finally open our window full I am so happy and relieved when I feel those drafts of fresh air reach me - it is like heaven. Even though we are up in a mountain bowl I notice the air is not always totally fresh because the city is just below. My family gives retreats right next to the Rocky Mt. Nat'l Park and we hike in there and there is where I feel the freshest air.
We have developed a strong practice of being aware of our breath and now I have come to see my in breath, my out breath, as something so special. It is only a little bit of air I am breathing in but I see it as one of the most beautiful things one of the most beautiful processes that I take part in. I have become so fully aware that I am taking in some of that air and something about it is just so wonderful. I suppose the plants must be happy about my outbreath as I am pretty happy about their outbreath.
"Your sensory desire to breathe is a natural attraction love to reconnect with nature." We use the breath to grow mindfulness but if we are lucky we are growing the exquisite awareness of the beauty of our breath itself as that natural attraction love.
I was particularly grateful this time for the statement in the activity, "In nature, in some way, every member is naturally attractive, loved and included....that is the reason runaway pollution, abusiveness, violence, loneliness, war and mental illness are virtually unknown in nature."
Sometimes I look at a single blade of grass or a single little flower/weed somewhere way off in the nowhere and how elegant, happy, loved it looks. How totally adequate it is - how content it is. This is because every member is just naturally appreciated and included in nature.

"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 98 percent of the wise sensory callings and fulfillments we normally receive from natural systems and their eons of experience. Our subconscious hurt and frustration from the severed disconnection of these senses underlies our greatest troubles.
