A Field Study Evaluation Report

Program Results

The great value of this course for me was learning first that I had at least 53 senses and that these were natural attraction intelligences. Then the concept of the web of life registering in my consciousness as 53 natural senses (webstrings) taught me some valuable insight into my true part in the universe. At first it was hard to wrap my brain around it all but when it clicked it really "locked" and I totally got it. The sensory versus the abstract way of knowing and thinking was logical to me and helped me to understand how I get interrupted from my experiences of natural attractions and the webstrings break. Very importantly as well, asking for permission to respectfully interact with nature was something that had never before occurred to me until this course. It makes sense to have the same respect for all of nature as one would for people. I would never go into a person's home with knocking first. Something very cool about this is that I can teach my grandchildren to ask permission from nature and show them how to have these ultimate experiences and hopefully they will pass it on to future generations. Maybe thinking and feeling by co-creating with webstrings can heal the globe.

A couple of years ago I was in school for my BSW and was discovering that I wanted to do something very different with my degree. I had been experiencing soothing relief from the stressors in my life by walking through parks and nature trails several times a day with my dog. I recognized how sad I would feel when I found pollution in these areas from time to time. I responded with efforts to clean things up. Then I began thinking about the other people I saw running, walking, walking dogs, pushing babies in strollers, having picnics in parks etc. I saw a connection in the healing powers in nature. I kept this idea on the forefront and when I finished my degree I began to research healing with nature. That is how I found this course.

Through this course I have learned significant activities that broadened my perspectives and experiences with nature. The learning process has allowed me to experience profound connections with the universe and find my place in it. I didn't know that my love for nature was an intelligent natural attraction and that we had at least 53 senses and that the universe was connected with webstrings.  It didn't take very long for me to realize the profound connection I was having with the group. Having people to share experiences with that we all could identify in has been an incredible natural connection for me.

The awesome experiences I've had such as the dragonflies and the garden would seem so "far out" that I would have been reluctant to share them with others. But having a group like y'all has allowed me to relax with it and accept it as a gift of the universe. It is really wonderful to know now that I might not be crazy, that I'm not the only one and that it is an authentic experience.

I have learned life solutions and greatly expanded my own personal growth. I have gained great insight in the application of nature therapy so that I may share it with others in the learning experience of how to engage in self healing through the natural environment. This course has been very instrumental in my efforts to pioneer nature-connected Social Work. It is my chosen field for master and doctorate studies.

I have really enjoyed everyone's experiences with the activities and it has been just the neatest thing to have this connection with people in all different parts of the universe. That has been really cool!  I thank each one of you for sharing and connecting with me and teaching me. I consider you all to be special in my life now as I venture on in the universe and I would like to keep the connection going.

I have become so aware of my surroundings now that I am having intense experiences with nature on a daily basis. That is how much this course has opened my eyes and turned on my senses. So it will be wonderful if I can continue to share extraordinary moments with y'all in the future. Good luck to everyone in all of your endeavors and thank you for your gift of yourself. You are all "kin" to me now.

"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
