A 1996 quote from the book by Howard Clinebell that identified and founded the study and practice of ecotherapy Ecotherapy: healing ourselves, healing the earth:

"Michael J Cohen Ph.D.,  How Nature Works and Reconnecting With Nature (1985, 2011): finding wellness through restoring your bond and kinship with the Earth"

"Dr. Michael J. Cohen, a psychologist and outdoor educator describes how he developed eco-therapeutic theory and methods that integrate psychology and ecology, and use thoughtful sensory contacts with nature to catalyze wellness, spirit, and responsibility. He portrays the process for enabling people to reconnect with nature that evolved over may decades of teaching outdoors.  It involves direct sensory contacts with nature, including nature within the person, integrated with cognitive understanding and validation of these nature feelings and sensory knowledge."

- Howard Clinebell, Ph.D.

A Learning With Nature Course Online Ecotherapy and Ecopsychology Gift Enables People to Respond to Key Life Relationship Questions.


Client: "My problem is that I always talk to myself."

Counselor: "Not to worry; most people talk to themselves."

Client: "But Doctor, you don't know what a knucklehead I am."


"The state of the world shows that most of us are knuckleheads with respect to enjoying inner peace and building responsible personal, environmental and social relationships. Where then in our irresponsible society can a person find a responsible source of information?"

The above question is the thrust of a free gift, online, nature-connected psychology and spirit trail and course designed by Dr. Michael J. Cohen. Dr. Cohen is the Director of Integrated Ecology at the Institute of Global Education, a special NGO consultant to the United Nations Economic and Social Council. There, Cohen, an Applied Ecopsychologist, serves as faculty to three online Universities.

This gift provides critical information and additional links to ecotherapy knowledge and processes on the web that enable people to build responsible life relationships.

All the gift material, although it has spiritual overtones, has been reviewed and published in professional science and technology, psychological, and environmental education journals. It is condensed from several accredited university courses. You can elect to have it become part of your academic transcript or professional training requirements

Trail/course participants trust the information the course offers because, unlike hearsay or book learning, they experience it first hand. This enables them to register its authenticity in their senses and sensibilities. They accomplish this by making genuine sensory contacts with intact ecosystems, backyard or backcountry. Improved wellness and personal and environmental relationships result from this connection.

The course addresses many significant ecotherapy questions we personally face (below) that underlie our unsolvable problems.

"Our biggest problem is that we blind ourselves to our inherent natural ability to solve problems." says Dr. Cohen, author of several books on the subject. "Many problems persist because we learn to ignore a vital source of ecological information and energy in Nature that enables us to resolve them."

The Institute's cooperative scholarship program make it affordable for anyone who thoughtfully loves nature to enjoy greater personal and professional rewards by using and teaching a unique natural systems thinking process.


The Ecopsychology and Ecotherapy questions addressed in this free, unique, gift idea.

ENVIRONMENT: Since we are part of Nature, what is the major difference that makes us destroy the environment while everything else in Nature enhances it?

SUSTAINABILITY: Can you cite a model, community or process that successfully produces sustainability?

ACCURATE INFORMATION: What is the greatest truth that you can trust (hint: it is neither God, love, Nature, nor honesty.)

PSYCHOLOGICAL DISORDERS: What produces the wanting void in our psyche, the discomfort, greed, and loneliness that fuels most human and thereby environmental disorders?

SPIRITUALITY: What is the sensory relationship between Nature, the Divine, and the Human Spirit?


EDUCATION: We learn how to be who we are; what factor in modern education teaches us to produce our lasting problems?

RECOVERY: What important source of healing energy does our cultural bias omit thereby sustaining our dependency upon healing programs and uninformed leaders?

ECONOMICS: What is the force that produces environmentally and socially destructive economic relationships?

STRESS: What is the difference between a fact, a thought and a feeling?


WAR: Why do we continue to assault nature and people when it doesn't make sense and we neither like doing it nor its hurtful effects?


INTELLIGENCE: How can we restore to our thinking the missing 48 sensory intelligences that contemporary society has buried in our subconscious?

NATURAL SYSTEMS: Why does contemporary society often identify a person's love of nature as "escapist recreation" rather than "peaceful re-creation."

IMPLEMENTATION: What readily available, inexpensive, process enables us to strengthen our inherent ability to build relationships that reduce these problems?

To discover practical, ecotherapy, working answers to these questions you are welcome to take the short, online course and/or read a short article

NOTE: The course contents are also available in  new books the Web of Life Imperative and
