Certified Organic: Nature as Higher Power

Creating Moments that let Earth Teach

by Michael J. Cohen

This advanced tool from Applied Ecopsychologist, Michael J. Cohen, Ph.D., recipient of the Distinguished World Citizen Award, strengthens personal, social and environmental well-being. The art and science of its powerful, 54-sense, educating, counseling and healing with nature process helps struggling individuals reduce stress, mental illness, addiction, pollution and apathy.

San Juan Island, WA January 12, 2013: “My name is Mike and I have two bodies. Earth is my other body,” says Dr. Michael J. Cohen the Applied Ecopsychology Director of Project NatureConnect at Akamai University. “I know this from the exceptional distress I would suffer if Earth was taken away from me. I’d feel
unloved along with the stressful pain of wanting, and loneliness as the survival of my body, mind and spirit lost its support.

In his new workbook, The Hidden Organic Remedy: Nature as Higher Power (NHP), Cohen helps us remedy and prevent the widespread misery that results from us spending, on average, over 98 percent of our time, thoughts and feelings disconnected from the supportive renewing and self-correcting ways of authentic nature, our “Other Body,” Planet Earth.

Cohen shows that our Other Body is the purifying and restorative essence of our lives that naturally shares its balancing ways and beauty with us while, disastrously, Industrial Society teaches us to substitute for them as we conquer nature, in and around us.
"Make a difference" he says, "If we only appoint or hire leaders who guarantee that Earth is their Other Body well-being will increase everywhere."

In NHP Cohen demonstrates that our excessive separation from the regenerative and renewing powers of our Other Body produces corrupt relationships and stressful wanting.  This results in 25 percent of our population being mentally ill, almost 80 percent of us being in some type of therapy and our stress triggering most of our medical and environmental problems.

Cohen’s antidote for our troubles is Educating, Counseling and Healing With Nature (ECHN). It works because it enables us to reconnect how we think, feel and act with the restorative and purifying powers of our Other Body and his book freely shares his sensory ECHN process.  This enables its readers to reverse our ongoing Other Body detachments and their resulting disorders.

NHP carries us along as participants in ECHN training sessions that help individuals with addictions and stress disorders benefit from resilience that they gain by genuinely connecting with Nature, backyard or backcountry.  Through NHP we learn how to create contact moments that let Earth’s energies give and teach us what we need for recovery and happiness.  We learn to apply our Other Body’s recycling and sanity powers in and around us.  In the process we become skilled Earth Avatars. We help our associates and the environment benefit from loving each other as our Other Body.

Cohen’s accredited art of ECHN uses an empirical science to uncover self-evident facts and experiences obtained by bonding with authentic Nature, the fountainhead of authority in how it and our Other Body work.

Because ECHN is fundamental it comes with a significant Warranty; it guarantees that its information is unadulterated, that it is fully trustable for reversing and preventing the crazy- making that presently undermines our way of life.  “It helps us let nature compost the pollution that disturbs our mentality and corrupts our inherent ability to relate reasonably,” says EcoArt Therapy expert, Dr. Theresa Sweeney.

NHP proves that the stress-reduction and renewal that we ordinarily experience during periods of quiet time spent in nature is the biological norm of our Other Body, a state that our nature-separated psyche has lost, but can regain via ECHN.  Its organics strengthen wellness, recovery and medical procedures while reducing their cost and improving the environment.
