The Web of Life Imperative:
Regenerative ecopsychology techniques that help people think in balance with natural systems


Learn to correct destructive personal and environmental relationships through a powerful organic psychology with no adverse side effects.

Improve your lifestyle, career and learning power by walking nature's balanced, rejuvenating path.

Solve challenging problems by tapping into turning point information and energies in natural systems.




"Scientific research is based on the idea that everything that takes place is determined by laws of nature, and therefore this holds for the action of people"

"Our task must be to free ourselves from (our) prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty"

"We can't solve problems by using the same level of consciousness and same kind of thinking we used when we created them."

- Albert Einstein


Many people who seek to increase peace, social justice, mental health and environmental sanity don't achieve their goals because they omit the readily available art and science that this book contributes. This omission also prevents people from eliminating many health, relationship and economic disorders.

Our underlying problem is the historic erosion of our inborn consciousness. Contemporary consciousness has learned to additively register and relate to natural systems within and around us as something to exploit or conquer. Our assault on natural systems robs us of the restorative, purifying powers in these systems. The Web of Life Imperative gives you a tool to help our consciousness recognize and treat nature as the life-supporting friend that it is. This removes the hostile energies that produce most of our most challengin personal and environmental disorders. It replaces them with the renewing, regenerative energies that sustain natural system vitality within and around us.

"In nature you can sense and feel the rejuvenating intelligence, beauty and peace that inspired the creation of this remarkable book and its practical self-improvement process. The Web of Life Imperative offers more tools, knowledge and personal power for good than most therapies and spiritualities. It enables us to reverse our destructive relationships by empowering us to make thoughtful sensory connections with genuine nature. This connection responsibly satisfies the aching, ever-wanting hole in our psyche that has been produced by our excessive separation from nature, a hole that leads us astray"

- Susan Chernak McElroy,
Award winning, N. Y. Times best selling author of Animals as Teachers and Healers and Heart in the Wild.


"Here is an established, easily accessible alternative to the destructive pitfalls in the way we presently learn to think and relate. This foundation for a much needed improvement in education and counseling is a practical component for integrated learning. It enables contemporary humanity to co-create truly civilized relationships with our planet and its people."

- Dr. Douglass Cappogrossi, President,
Akamai University, Hawaii


"We dramatically increased our program's effectiveness by adding the Natural Systems Thinking Process to it. It helps our participants connect with their sensory origins in nature and use that peaceful power to improve their relationships with self, society and the environment."

- Dr. James Rowe, Director
Outward Bound School in Costa Rica



The Web of Life Imperative offers an unprecedented breakthrough for sanity, a social and ecological "e=mc2." It teaches you how to use an easily learned, sensory nature-connection process that enables you to improve:

    • Peace. Presents a newly researched, potent component that helps us achieve inner, social and international peace.
    • Health: Provides an alternative medicine and ecological psychotherapy that increases physical and mental health.
    • Environment: Offers a readily available means to restore the integrity of natural systems within and around us.
    • Sustainability: Helps us live in rapport with the land and humanity as have people in other cultures and times.
    • Relationships: Empowers us to enjoy more intimate, stronger and lasting friendships and love bonds.
    • Leadership: Assists us in mastering and teaching a profound process to reach our deeper ideals and hopes. Entitles us to demand that our leaders engage in this process and support its implementation at every level.


More About The Web of Life Imperative.
Each of us is part of an important survival community consisting of our family and friends, our professional relationships and the environment. As such, we have the responsibility to sustain a supportive and healthy quality of life for all community members.

You may recognize that most of us are not doing the job that needs be done to meet our community needs. As good as our intentions may be, they are obviously not enough. Far too many people and ecosystems today suffer from our inability to overcome the obstacles that face us.

Now, a remarkable new tool can help anybody turn the tide.

The Lie of Omission
At the Institute of Global Education (IGE), a special NGO consultant to the United Nations Economic and Social Council, researchers have identified a major, seldom acknowledged, "blind spot" in contemporary consciousness. It is a destructive void that contributes to the deterioration of our social and environmental relationships. This blind spot in our consciousness undermines the best of our intentions because it is very difficult for us to deal with things that do not register in our awareness.

The void in our consciousness results from the way we socialize and educate our natural born psyche. From birth on, as part of our excessive separation from nature, we reward our thinking for ignoring a continual natural flow of biological survival sensations that we are genetically endowed to register in our consciousness. Ignoring them produces a conditioned, sensory blank spot in our thinking, a void in our mentality. It results in us in knowing and relating to the world through half-truths caused by missing information about the value of natural systems. Like intellectual bigots, this causes us to blindly trespass the sensory boundaries set by the signals from other biological and human community members simply because we are insensitive to them. They no longer innately register in our consciousness. This produces many destructive effects that overwhelm us.

The disregard of most experts to our void in consciousness and its harmful effects is reflected in their disregard of a fact of life that Dr. Michael J.Cohen identifies:

"The sensation of thirst is as much a fact, truth and reality of life as is water. Thirst is a vital part of consciousness, intelligence and survival. It is the part of personal and global awareness that knows and communicates to us when we do or don't need a drink of water for our well being. We learn to take this intelligence for granted.

As an attraction for, or love of water, thirst sensuously brings water into us and thereby nutrifies it and us as part of the global community's water, nitrogen and life cycles.

We suffer many dilemmas because we are taught to mostly know, learn, think and relate through five senses and the sense of thirst is not one of them. Similarly, our consciousness and thinking omit 48 other equally vital natural senses.

The way we learn to think too often omits including profound natural senses and their joys, like the joy of thirst being quenched. We lose the joys of community, trust, belonging, balance, peace and place along with 42 others of equal value and importance. Although this destructive omission can be easily rectified, we continue to try to make sense and enjoy life using only five senses, ten percent of our inborn sensory intelligence and potential. The unhealthy, aggravated state of the world and our lives reflect this disorder."

Results of Research
There is good news. The IGE research team has discovered that as we learn how to help nature rejuvenate and thereby remove the harmful sensory void in our psyche, we therapeutically reduce a major source of the destructive, endless wanting and hurt that is generated by the void. In addition, our thinking receives excellent empirical knowledge and regenerative guidance from natural systems within and around us. As a result, many harmful relationships subside. We begin to build cooperation and peace internally and externally.

To implement these discoveries, IGE has developed a significant process that enables anyone to reverse the dilemma presented by the numbed spot in our consciousness. You may learn the process in The Web of Life Imperative, thus it is imperative to read the book. The book teaches you how to enjoyably and safely strengthen your biological survival sensations so that they acutely register in your thinking. There, as is their natural purpose, these sensory energies renew, guide and motivate you to act in more sensitive, life supportive, ways. These are the same web of life sensitivities that help natural systems organize themselves into their coordinated perfection without producing garbage or our many other troubles.

Dramatically, through the book's ethic and activities, the passions that survival sensations create in us transform the evil of our apathy into the joy of more motivated and thoughtful participation in naturally balanced, and rewarding relationships. We more actively engage in solving our problems because we are rewarded by the peace, improved health and and stress reduction from doing so.


Participation and transformation
The unique process the book presents helps us unify with our surroundings and become an integrated community. We consciously, powerfully register that we are part of life and the eons; it feels right and makes sense. This motivates us to seek the satisfactions gained from greater participation in responsible social and environmental programs.

Because the process enables us to transform our destructive relationships into constructive involvement, it is an excellent recovery and preventative tool for many disturbances and disorders.

We live in the myth that responsible wellness, social and cultural change is slow and difficult to achieve. However, television, air conditioning, computers and the internet when not misused are examples of responsible changes in how we relate to the world and each other, changes that occurred quickly because they provide a technological process whose rewards people seek and appreciate. This is equally true of the web of life process discovered at IGE. It is an easily accessible, therapeutic, consciousness-rejuvenating technology that enables us to enjoy social and environmental sanity.

The process makes a major contribution to the success of worthwhile personal or social causes. It is readily available through the subsidized, book, The Web of Life Imperative, to be officially released July 15, 2003. Pre-publication editions are presently available

Can you afford to overlook the potent addition this self-guiding book can make in your work or life goals? It empowers you to further your personal and professional hopes, realize your ideals and reduce disorders because it gives you a powerful process by which you can implement these goals.
