Reconnecting With Nature Finding Wellness Through Restoring Your Bond With the Earth (Paperback)
|Author: Michael J. Cohen|
|Most of us have been conditioned to ignore more than fifty natural sensitivities that connect us with nature's beauty, health, and regenerative ways. This omission underlies our unhealthy stress and disorders. The Organic Psychology chapters and activities in Reconnecting With Nature help our fifty-three senses embrace natural systems. The systems, in turn, compost and transform industrial society's pollution of our mind and body into personal, environmental, and spiritual well-being.|

This book is organized in short, easy-to-read chapters on topics related to ecology, mental health, self-esteem, psychology, spirituality, self-realization, and many others. Each chapter presents thought-provoking information with solid scientific back-up, and a guided activity so that the reader can then apply the information. Eye-opening and uplifting, Cohen writes with honesty, humor, and compassion to help readers re-energize and celebrate those "common senses" that many of us have been taught to ignore (to our detriment). I am reading this book for a class and just ordered two extra copies to give as gifts.
