Sensory Ecology Activities, Courses and Degree Programs


The Snug Harbor Sensory Ecology Training Center offers an easily learned and taught nature connected webstring sensory process all year round. It is an ecotourism option available in conjunction with the internet, while vacationing at Snug Harbor on the San Juan Islands, or at home, work or school. The program consists of fascinating nature psychology activities, courses, (academic or professional credit is optional) as well as distant learning Ph.D., M.S. and B.A. degree programs.

Backyard or backcountry, this applied ecopsychology program feelingly helps people discover and replace missing webstring links in the nature estranged way our society teaches us to think. Because it removes psychological bonds that hold us to destructive, change resistant ways, a workshop or stay at Snug Harbor can add a valuable extra dimension to your vacation, career or education. Learn how to use a Natural Systems Thinking Process .that improves relationships with self, society and Earth. This process helps people thoughtfully create moments in which conscious sensory contacts with nature:




-dissolve our bonds to destructive relationships.

-help people sense, honor and enjoy creation energies that we share with the natural world.

-safely nurture and bring 48 suppressed natural senses into our awareness and thinking.

-enable us to sensously relate with the purity of nature's unadulterated wisdom, love and spirit.

In conjunction with Project NatureConnect, training and educational opportunities at Snug Harbor enable people to genuinely sense the web of life and its balanced, supportive ways. Teachable moments with Earth itself help us reduce our stress, recycle our destructive thinking and enjoy responsible relationships. In this process, all things become unifying instructors and partners for personal, social and global healing.

Special programs for organized groups are available by appointment.
