Just as a clearing sky beckons you, continue on this trail
as it does the same. As you agree with the information on this 18 station
trail, follow the trail by selecting the Continue response that
leads you to the next page. Continue is located at the bottom of
each page on the trail.
To get the most from this trail, please wait for the continue
page to fully load before reading it. Gaze at the image first. It often
triggers inner nature sensations in you that the text helps you relate
to. It may take as long as 15 seconds for the image to appear on some pages.
For best results, use a full screen width. On your
first time through, stay on the trail, don't follow the links unless you

A common reaction: Perhaps psychologically I am a savage, like nature. Maybe it's
not healthy for me to discover my inner nature since I don't believe it
is loving or desires love.
I recognize that to become more whole,
we must unify the detached parts of ourselves and the world. I'm interested
in unifying psychology and ecology, mind and nature
