"Our  Christmas tree we chose this year is a potted Colorado Spruce. I will plant it on my property after its visit to our home is complete. Sometimes that has been into July...So I chose to set with this tree. I love its presents, its prescence and its aliveness...the spiritual promise of what it will continue to be. This was evident to me when my daughter and I were at the store picking it out. So for some of this assignment I need to also include the nature of a human and spirituality. Which in this case is my daughter. When I was at the store I was feeling my attraction to this tree and to my daughter and that we were all connected. I also wanted to honor her nature and attraction process. I could write several paragraphs on the gratitude I was having for this course, the wisdom and the awareness I was plugging into. I was careful not to let the story in my mind manipulate what her attraction was. I ask questions that were invitations for her to explore her senses of which tree she felt connection with. As a father I this was a thrilling experience. Beyond words. We didnt have to decide between two different trees between us. We chose the same one. I took a moment before final decision and ask this beautiful tree if it would like to come to our home and be part of our family. As I was silently asking, the scent of pine seemed to surround me. I asked my daughter if she could also smell this and she expressed how strong she could when before it wasn't as strong. I hadn't told her what I was doing at that time."

- From an Anonymous Course Participant's Journal

We suffer our greatest disorders because we use a flawed map to chart our way to personal, social and global well-being. A corrected map is now available through the science of Natural Attraction Ecology (NAE).

The flawed map of conventional Ecology portrays that the global life community, of which we are part, is governed by food chains and natural system relationships.  This is only partially correct. To our loss, it omits important empirical evidence. The NAE science of mind map shows that we and our living planet operate through the balancing, restorative and self-correcting powers of natural attractions that we experience as at least 53 natural senses and feelings.

The NAE map works because is based solely on empirical facts and evidence of spirit. It helps us rectify the destructively biased and unsubstantiated stories to which we are conditioned.

Spiritual enlightenment through NAE enables us improve the well being of any endeavor or relationship.  Its new though process empowers us think, feel and act sensibly by energizing 45 natural sensitivities that our flawed map ignores.

The spiritual process of the NAE map recognizes that all living things, including our planet and us, naturally relate in ways that produce optimums of life, cooperation, diversity and health. This results because biologically, the spiritual laws of life, including our body, mind and psyche, can offer us a spiritual journey that is guided by the time tested, self-organizing and self-correcting cycles of nature that flow through, in and around us.

Nature's streaming cycles consist of the same natural attraction that holds atoms,  as well as our solar system together.  This energy is attracted to renew, restore and purify life systems. It sustains nature's balance and beauty without producing garbage, pollution, or our excessively abusive and destructive ways.

For survival on our spiritual path and direction, nature endows us to engage in and register at least 53 types of natural attraction relationships. Our psyche experiences them as 53 natural senses and feelings. To our loss, in our conquest or exploitation of nature we usually learn to ignore or demean these sensitivities for they are nature's essence.  This retards our spiritual growth.

Spiritual enlightenment through NAE gives us the ability to help nature keep our 53 natural attraction senses in our conscious awareness. This enables us to sense, identify and enjoy nature's cyclic flow.

The spiritual healing and fulfillment of our natural senses by nature's flow signals that all is well.

The sense of Thirst is a natural attraction sensory intelligence. It connects our psyche to the global water cycle. Thirst turns on so our thinking knows when we need water; it turns off so our thinking knows when we have enough water.

As we drink water we satisfy the disturbance we experience from our activated sense of thirst. This spiritual living satisfaction releases dopamine as a natural reward.  We feel more content, happy and relieved. We feel grateful for water and our natural senses

Our natural attraction sense of excretion then contributes our wastes as nourishment for other members of the web of life, so the water cycle and its nurturing purity and balance continues.

Like a religious science, each of our additional 52 natural attraction senses operates similarly to thirst. Each contributes to life in balance. They include our natural senses of consciousness, reason, hunger, community, place, trust, motion, color, gravity, touch, belonging and literacy along with 35 others.

Because it does not include NAE, our flawed map overlooks that our natural attraction sense of thirst, is an objective fact.  Thirst registers in our awareness. It is as real and true as water. It acts like a spiritual guide for emotional healing

Although the wisdom of the sensation of thirst is part of nature's water cycle in and around us, our flawed map and thinking omits it from being one of our "five senses" by which we know and relate to the world. This omission is significant. It disconnects our thoughts, spirituality and reasoning from the purifying, nurturing and satisfying benefits of the water cycle. We learn not respect "thirst" and we and the environment suffer accordingly.

In addition to our flawed map's omission of our sense of thirst, we suffer from the maps omission of our 45 additional natural senses. Like the sense of thirst, each of them, in balanced and satisfying ways are gifts that help us think, feel and co-create like nature works.

NEA enables us to let our natural senses interlace and balance with their origins in nature, backyard or backcountry.   Without us using the NAE map, all of life suffers from our insensitivity and senselessness.  

The NAE map helps natural systems sustanin our 53 natural attraction senses in our conscious awareness so we can make greater sense of our lives.  This gives us the ability to sense, think with and enjoy nature's cyclic flow. The fulfillment of these senses by nature releases Dopamine. This produces a happiness in us that signals all is well.

The flaw in our conventional map is that Ecology says that the global life community, of which we are part, is governed by food chains and natural system relationships.  This is only partially correct.

To our loss, it omits important empirical evidence. The NAE map demonstrates that we and our living planet operate through the balancing, restorative and self-correcting powers of natural attractions that we experience as at least 53 natural senses and feelings.

The root of our most challenging problems has been identified.  It is this. An unreasonable, emotionally bonded bias in our thinking rewards us for damaging the prime source of our personal, social and environmental well-being.

Our bias pays us to ignore that:

- the flow of natural systems, in and around us, has biologically and psychologically designed us to be supportive citizens of the global life community, not conquers of it.

- nature's supportive ways sensibly nurture, purify and restore our well being and this includes our ability to think clearly.

For more than 99 percent of our lifetime our thoughts and senses are disconnected from direct sensory contact with nature's revitalizing flow. This excessive separation of our psyche from the nature's grace creates problems that we can't solve. It estranges us. We are removed from the source of our ability to think and feel like nature's self-correcting powers work.

When we wisely choose to reconnect our psyche with nature, we benefit from participating in the wellness of the web-of-life and its capacity to recycle our stressed or contaminated thinking. This is demonstrated by the renewal that results from even a short walk in the park.

In our excessively nature-separated lives, it is the profound absence of nature's regenerative qualities and spirit that underlies our personal and environmental dilemmas.
Learning how to make lasting sensory contact with nature enables our psyche to bind with nature's healing ways and increase well-being, in and around us.  It empowers us to give nature the space it needs to help our thinking transform our misguided bonds into the beauty of sane, reasonable and balanced relationships.

"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
