A Course Participant's Report:
This course benefited me by helping me discover how and why each of us is in denial, why industrial society suffers the personal, social and environmental dilemmas my classmates so expertly describe elsewhere.
Our great problem is that we learn, teach and believe that we live on the surface of Planet Earth. But we don't. We are born of and live in the life-giving nature of Earth, deep in its sunlit air, water, plants, animals and minerals, in its attractions, energies and life-spirit.
We live in and are part of natural systems that moment by moment stream into and through us and all of life. This is called "wilderness" the place where Jesus, and many others, spent 40 or more extraordinary days and nights.
People, including Jesus, are indeed part of nature. For example, every 5-7 years, molecules from natural systems replace every molecule in our mind and body. These replacement molecules become us and we become them in nature. Over half our body weight consists of "foreign" organisms; we have ten times more of them in us than we have human cells.
Our mind and body are born to survive by feelingly registering and seeking love, joy and support from our kinship with nature, and vice versa.
We and nature/earth have one major, easily recognized difference. It is this: our excessively nature-separated lives and stories socialize us to disconnect our thinking from nature's grace, balance and restorative powers. The latter are the way nature sustains Earth's life-supportive non-polluting perfection This loss stressfully pains us. It produces emotional death and deprivation in our psyche. We end up wanting, and when we want there is never enough so we are driven to greedily exploit natural systems within and around us to produce artificial fulfillments. What I discovered on this course is that, as one might reason, this destructive process stops when we genuinely reconnect our thinking and feeling with nature.
Did God really abandon Jesus in the wilderness as the bible says? On this course nature itself has taught me Jesus was not alone. Natural systems were everywhere to supportively help his body and spirit endure. I know this happens because through the course activities I've experienced it first hand. It's almost as if Jesus took this course, too.
Today, we suffer because we have been brainwashed to think we must conquer nature to survive. As we injure it, we injure ourselves. We spend, on average, over 95 percent of our time separated from nature; over 99 percent of our thinking is disconnected from the miracle of how nature sustains all of life in beautiful balance and diversity, self-correcting, without producing any garbage.
Since nature is our life support system and our thinking is our destiny, the way we destructively think about nature in industrial society must be considered to be a form of madness.
The great question of Hamlet in Shakespeare's play was: "To be or not to be." It has taken on a new sense and meaning for me. I have experienced how and why our nature-disconnected life has led us to look for artificial, often destructive, fulfillments. We constantly "be" in our mind and we seldom enjoy the genuine natural contacts that trigger deeper questions and more sensible answers. Life has become a numbness that we are not aware of because we have become numb.
This online course brings me back on a valuable trail that, to my loss, I long ago abandoned. During the course I have learned how to reconnect my real natural ways of knowing to nature, and to consciously get in touch with my 53 or more natural senses or intelligences that connect me to my planet home. By digging deeper I have realized the harm of our disconnectedness from nature. With the shared email experience of other participants I have observed that as we start to connect to nature we renew our natural senses and become more alive and sensible.
This course demonstrates that the active process of life will teach me what I have to know in any moment that I appreciatively seek it. I now have the tools to let nature help my find my way in balance. My experiences, and those of other course members, have shown us the challenges we face and have given us the means to enlist nature's assistance to meet them. Maybe Jesus was also doing that.
This funded, 14 to 50-day sensory science course could be taught to 200 million people in a year via the Internet, including the leadership in every nation. The resulting monumental increase in our awareness would help us come into balance and increase the well being of natural systems within and about us and others.
Why Organic Psychology?
In industrial society our mentality suffers from a simple but critical error that produces our excessive separation from nature. It contaminates our thinking and relationships. It disconnects and blocks from our mind over 95 percent of the wise sensory signals from natural systems that would ordinarily register in our consciousness and provide us with beneficial information. This profound loss desensitizes our psyche and interactions. It reduces our natural intelligence, spirit and immunity. It causes us to unnecessarily suffer great disorders.
An Antidote and Preventative
Learning to use and teach Organic Psychology provides us with a nature-reconnecting antidote for the hurtful disconnection of our psyche from nature's grace, balance and restorative powers. Readily available via the Internet, the facts and process of this accredited sensory science enables our mind to thoughtfully interlace with the regenerative ways of natural systems within and around us. This empowers us to increase our wholeness by composting into fertile thoughts the garbage that society often dumps into our mind.
Organics purify. The stress-releasing transformation we enjoy from using Organic Psychology strengthens the health our thinking, resilience and relationships.

"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.
