Some people are very wise.

They recognize that humanity's biology, psychology, and spirit, are rooted in the womb and eons of Mother Earth and her ecosystems.

They realize that contemporary society's conquest of nature severely disconnects our daily thinking and and relationships from nature's intelligent peace within and around us.

Separation from nature:

Our separation from nature tears us away from our fulfilling origins in nature. This produces many unfulfilled wants. We feel we don't have enough power, companionship or material possessions. We experience uncontrollable desires and dependencies that don't make sense and are hard to change.

Personally and globally, wellness deteriorates.

The present unpeaceful, destructive state of Earth and its people results.


Reconnecting with nature:

Research shows that genuine sensory reconnection with nature, backyard or backcountry, psychologically and spiritually reunites us with our supportive planetary origins.

Reconnecting lets nature helps us transform our destructive desires into constructive participation.
