Title, purpose and description:
COUNSELING AND EDUCATING WITH NATURE:
Nature activities for wellness, spirit and deeper learning
"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
Irrefutable studies now confirm that stress emanating from our nature
disconnected "bleeding roots" creates the insatiable wants that
cause most runaway personal, social and environmental problems.
Research at the Institute of Global Education shows that new nature
connecting methods and materials rebind our natural roots with Earth, dissolve
our stress and reduce our problems. A balanced, kinder way of life evolves.
By email, telephone, correspondence or on-site, Project NatureConnect teaches
a ecologically sound, education and mental health courses throughout the

wisdom, creation and spirit. They offer optional academic and continuing
