Let Your Love of the Life of Nature and Earth Help their Life Reduce Climate Change.

Love of Nature Free Courses Reduce Climate Change

Today, like myself, many nature lovers grieve as our runaway deterioration of the life of Earth, Nature and ourselves persists. Scientific studies continue to report an increase in climate change, species extinction, habitat destruction, resource overload, unfair relationships, poverty, mental illness and stress overload. 

The life of Planet Earth is under assault because our society suffers from Nature Deficit Disorder (NDD).  This sickness motivates us to excessively disconnect from, exploit and conquer our living planet’s balance and beauty in and around us.

If you love the life of Nature and Earth, you may obtain, free, the remedy for NDD.  It is a practical tool, a social technology known as the Whole Life Art and Science of Educating, Counseling and Healing With Nature (ECHN). 

NDD flourishes because it pays our "objective" intelligence to omit "subjective" facts. This corrupts the natural world while it sells us addictive quick fixes to relieve our pain from this corruption. It gives us the Whole Life IQ of an Idiot and helps to explain our crazy world.

ECHN works because it enables you to create authentic sensory moments in natural areas that let Earth’s life teach you what you need to know to overcome NDD.  Backyard or backcountry, it gives your "subjective" love of Nature the ability to transform our NDD madness into Earth’s self-correcting purity and peace.  

ECHN reconnects with authentic Nature the injured parts of us that have been excessively disconnected from Nature. This lets Nature recycle and heal its wounded self in and around us as well as strengthen our love of Earth and Earth’s love of us. Through ECHN we can
•    Stop treating our living Planet as a dead resource that has no rights to its life.  
•    Remedy our mind pollution and the disorder miseries that NDD makes us suffer.
•    Let our 54 survival senses help us reverse climate change, species extinction and habitat destruction
•    Get “Organism Earth” protected as an endangered species.

Why not give yourself the free NDD antidote that your love of Nature deserves? Tap into the trustable intelligence, safety and support that Nature provides and thank it for always being there for you.  Instantly engage in our free ECHN activities because you want to increase Earth’s and your well-being.

An Overview: Our 54 Sense Life of Earth Intelligence

Project NatureConnect Warranty: The whole life art and science of Educating, Counseling and Healing with Nature (ECHN) is the critical social technology we must use to reverse our disorders and increase personal, social and environmental well-being.

  • My senses of hunger, thirst and suffocation signal me that I need water, food and air. They attract me to them. 
  • My senses of trust, community and thankfulness signal I have support here and now. They attract me to this relationship.
  • My senses of reason and language say that it is self-evident that the six senses (above) help me make sense.  This attracts me to their reasonable story.
   My sense of reason also works off a story that I habitually learned to believe. It says, “We only have five senses.” 
   Now my sense of reason says, “That five-sense story must be inaccurate. None of the eight senses, above, including reason and language, are included in the five I was taught to be the correct number.” 
   I know from experience that the eight senses are self-evident and undeniable. They are biologically the built in way nature gave our nervous and other systems to register the world; they are an essence of correctness. 

   My sense of Reason now says that self-evidence shows that it is  reasonable for me or anyone else to believe, feel and act as if we only have five senses. 
   My sense of Reason also says it is reasonable for you and I to be reasonable if we don’t want to increasingly suffer the consequences, a major consequence being Earth Misery Day

Today, the reasonable updated story of the senses is that scientifically, we are naturally born with at least 54 natural sense groups that make us aware and attach us to the life and self-correcting balance and beauty of the natural world, in and around us.

Our 54 senses are designed to help us consciously register the life of our Planet, from womb to tomb.  When we do so we are in tune with, and can live in balance with the life of Earth in and around us, rather than trespass it.  This is because one of the 54 is the sense of reason (#42). When signals from Earth register on our senses, we react accordingly when they are reasonable, and vice versa.  Each sense motivates because it is its own, special organic love to survive as us, moment after moment.

We suffer our disorders and dilemmas because
1. We are born with the natural 54-sense ability to live in balance with the life of our Planet

2. From our birth on, we are socialized to think, feel and relate through only 15 percent of our 54 senses.  In addition, for 99 percent of our lives our socialization attaches us to the limits of our indoor world’s material science and technology facts and inventions along with its objectivity rules and imaginary metaphysical stories. We seldom learn how the whole life of Planet Earth including the subjective is operating, in and around us moment-by-moment.  This omission in our socialization is a sickness known as Nature Deficit Disorder (NDD) or Natural Attraction Dysfunction. 

3. We habitually operate with an Idiot level Whole Life Intelligence IQ of 15 due to NDD; this explains many dilemmas including Earth Misery Day.  NDD habitually motivates us to excessively disconnect from, exploit and conquer the life of Earth’s balance and beauty in and around us.

4. We seldom eliminate NDD because its gives us a salary to corrupt the natural world. It also profits the folks who sell us our immediate satisfaction stories and the other relationships  and technologies that we depend on to relieve our pain from our corruption. Most challenging of all to us is that NDD teaches us to deny its known origin and remedy.
The whole life art and science of Educating, Counseling and Healing with Nature (ECHN) helps us remedy NDD. It enables us to create moments in natural areas that let Earth guide and teach us. These moments provide, at will, a safe space to come into play, our buried, but alive, 54-sense ability to live in reasonable balance with the life of our Planet. 

ECHN works because anybody can make its process and benefits part of their daily life and livelihood.
