A Course Participant's Organic Global Knowledge Report:

"The global knowledge move to holistically experience the nonverbal realm, the immediate substrate of nature and organic physical sensations, has to be intrinsically motivated: it has to be fun, attractive, desirable, and rewarding to every person, whether they be rich or poor, high class or low, accepted or rejected by society, smart or dumb, old or young, healthy or ill. This base knowledge self-power experience has to be intrinsically motivated because people naturally resist suggestions to try anything simply because they "should." This course helped us discover the secret for ourselves that direct, nonverbal contact with the natural world is always a possible source of attractive, positive sensations, and that knowledge offers relief from the stress and meaninglessness that pervade contemporary life in western culture.

As Cynthia noted:

"If such an isolated activity [one of the exercises] can promote personal well-being which would then have a positive influence on one's day to day relations, in the family, workplace and other locations of interpersonal interaction, then a continuous bonding with nature would surely reduce stress, conflict and frustration."

Experiential learning
When asked in one exercise to notice our breath, to consider how the cycle of air (the out-breathing of plants) calls us to participate when we hold our breath, people reported an increased sense of meaning in their lives:


"I think it enhanced my self worth by pointing out that by just breathing, something I do automatically, I am contributing to the well being of the Earth!"


"I never thought I am so important to nature. I thought nature was
important to me. I feel good, comfortable and opened to do the activity. I can now feel and thinking about feeling without separation as, mistaken by my stories, I used to do trying to adopt a more spiritual way of life. I felt a kind of relief."


Global interdependnce
These statements clearly show positive intrinsic motivation to live with and carry forward the new awareness of interdependence. Sarah summed up another important aspect of the experience of these interactions with nature - that the reward is in the doing, it is not a prize or possession.
She said:

"For me, if reward is removed from the concept of competition and is placed in a natural context, then reward would not be a product but rather a process of human endeavour. This would change its pace, its essence and its value."

This is profound. It hints at an inescapable truth: this awareness has to be practiced repeatedly because we are immersed in stories and knowledg that invalidate the experience, deny its value and declare us to exist "against" or "in spite of" nature rather than as an integral part of it.

As Mike said:

". . . it is not enough to keep reading about Organic Psychology {although cognitively stimulating} -it is in the doing, seeking out nature that true learning, knowlege and benefit occurs. What was refreshing was the mindlessness I feel - I really felt connected to the wind and trees -rather than the constant stream of thought in my head."

"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."

-Stephen Aizenstat


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.

-Michael J. Cohen
