Educating Counseling And Healing With Nature

Educating Counseling And Healing With Nature

by Michael J. Cohen




Think of the good experiences that you have had in nature: backyard or backcountry; mountain, forest or field; brook, ocean or shoreline. Try to remember colors, sounds, aromas, textures or flavors that might have been part of the experience. Did your contact with nature contain comforting motions or attractive feelings of community, trust or place'Did you feel this visit was enchanting, self-enhancing or spiritually pleasing? Was it supportive, peaceful or both? Did it help you clear your mind? Did you feel renewed or purified, or that you were part of a greater whole or being. Did you feel you belonged? These are some of the results that many individuals have reported from remembering valuable experiences in nature, experiences they would welcome repeating. Many have also conveyed that they did not need a teacher, class or book to teach them to have an attractive nature experience; its qualities seemed to be innate, some could remember wonderful experiences from early childhood.
