Book Description

We hold these truths to be self-evident:

Think of at least one good experience that you have had in nature: backyard or backcountry; mountain, forest or field; brook, ocean or shoreline; pet, garden or aquarium.
-Try to remember colors, sounds, aromas, textures or flavors that might have been part of the experience.
-Did your contact with nature contain comforting motions or attractive feelings of community, trust or place? 
-Did you feel this visit was enchanting, self-enhancing or spiritually pleasing?
-Was it supportive, peaceful or both?  Did it help you clear your mind?
-Did you feel renewed or purified, or that you were part of a greater whole or being. Did you feel you belonged? 
These are some of the results that many individuals, especially left-handers, have reported from remembering valuable experiences in nature, experiences they would welcome repeating.  Many have conveyed that they did not need a teacher, class or book to teach them to have an attractive nature experience; its qualities seemed to be innate, some could remember wonderful experiences from early childhood. We hold these truths to be self-evident.
Discover a new, scientific, web-of-life, therapy experience: how a nature-connected, holistic, sensory ecology for health and wellness improves our critical thinking, feeling and well-being. Explore why and when our psyche benefits from the grace of nature's balance and renewing powers. Learn a "left-handed," outdoor Ph.D. ecopsychology model, how Earth communicates with us through 53 empirical natural senses and sensitivities and gives us our loves for spirituality, community, reason and trust; consciousness, beauty and music.

We are swimming in the global ecosystem, the higher power spirit and heart of our lives. Master nature-connected ecotherapy to remedy Industrial Western Society's prejudice to suppress our biological inheritance, to subdue our instincts to communicate with our planet. Apply a therapeutic, experiential education remedy for our destructive greed, stress, depression and excessiveness problems.  Use and teach this antidote for our abusiveness and chemical dependency relationships.
They demonstrate that we are part of nature.  They help us to know our true natural self, the self that our socialization by Industrial Society has trained us to habitually remove from our awareness. It is this loss to our psyche and thinking that underlies our destructive excessiveness and disorders.

"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 98 percent of the wise sensory callings and fulfillments we normally share with natural systems and their eons of experience. Our subconscious hurt and frustration from the severed disconnection of these senses underlies our greatest troubles.

-Michael J. Cohen


Benefit from learning to enhance the natural psychic pulse within and around us. Add the sensory ecoscience of Organic Psychology to your life and livelihood.
