...Here's a little secret:
The science of Organic Psychology offers you the benefits of connecting to your origins in greater wholeness. By creating moments that let Earth teach, this online sensory tool helps you think and relate through the.self-correcting, non-polluting, regenerative ways that nature works to produce its perfection.
An Organic Psychology Course Participant's Report:
People are an intimate part of organized and dynamically balanced natural systems. This perspective contradicts the dominant view of the environment as solely resources for human use, a belief that separates us from nature and its pleasures. Disconnection from nature results in society clinging to its cultural stories and resisting the idea that we can profit from its wisdom:
"The discrepancy creates a resonance that is the root of personal, social and environmental dis-ease."
"People who find themselves stressed out and seeking alternatives can walk in nature all they want and it won't help much. They don't know how to use it. They don't know how to quiet their minds and not think a process that enables them to create space for something more whole to happen."
Recognizing that this narrowed vision limits our potential is necessary, but it is not sufficient, to stimulate change. "Using intellectual reasoning to convince others to take better care of Mother Earth does not work. Instead people must become reconnected to nature." The activities thus play a critical role in circumventing limited intellectual thinking and enjoying the pleasure of more holistic relationships. Opening our senses to nature, and seeking its consent, permits a genuine connection that engenders belonging and good feelings that become known as real and true on a deep level. Attuned to nature, we experience ourselves in, and of, the web of life and the human constructed barrier begins to break down. As participants explain:
"I had no need to define what I saw/felt, and thought how science (with naming, categorizing and analyzing) limits our senses and ability to enjoy the wonder of nature. I also felt privileged to be part of the mystery."
"Soon, I was breathing with the Earth, I was flowing with the wind and the trees, there was no separation. Finally, a moment of clarity. A moment of being in the flow."
As conventional paradigms and limiting stories release their hold on our psyche, we may feel uncomfortable or vulnerable in letting go of familiar ways. Yet this is precisely the pleasure process that allows meaningful and supportive relationships to form. The essential ingredient is trust: in nature, in ourselves, and in others. The course is carefully designed to develop trust in each of these areas.
"For me, this exercise was a matter of trusting that initial connection, and staying with the feelings, sensations."
Nature supports the web of life, and given that we are an intimate part of this system, we can accept and integrate its guiding wisdom. We also learn to trust our "inner nature" or inner self (our own senses, feelings and insights) that is part of the greater whole:
"Moving from that deep and ancient level, I know, what I need to do to make my own way in the world."
"It's so great to communicate with people who think about things deeply and really care."

"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."
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.

"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."
- Albert Einstein.
"Oh, what a catastrophe, what a maiming of love when it was made personal, merely personal feeling. This is what is the matter with us: we are bleeding at the roots because we are cut off from the earth and sun and stars. Love has become a grinning mockery because, poor blossom, we plucked it from its stem on the Tree of Life and expected it to keep on blooming in our civilized vase on the table."
- D. H. Lawrence
"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their freshness into you, and the storms
their energy, while cares will drop off like falling leaves."
