Healing With Nature by Michael J.Cohen, Ph.D. The

process described on the Project NatureConnect homepage.
In 1936, a New York City elementary school
insisted that Cohen, a left-handed child in the first grade, write with
his right hand. This produced speech, posture, depression and stress
disorders in him for which he received therapy. Later, as an
environmental educator he found a nature-connected remedy for many
additional disorders that resulted from assaults on our personal,
social and environmental well being. These disorders were caused by
Industrial Society unreasonably impeding at least one or more of our 53
natural senses -including left-handedness for 10 percent of the
population. They are natural senses that we inherit as part of nature's
communication and guidance. They help us sustain balanced and mutually
relationships with all members of the global life, plant, animal and
mineral community. Cohen's book describes and
defends the unique contributions and significance of the web of life
model that he developed to increase local and global well-being.
