Nature: A Panacea for our modern woes

things to do in byron bay

16 Jun Nature: A Panacea for our modern woes

Are you Depressed? Anxious? Feeling scattered? Nothing ever really satisfies you, and your endless desires pile up with no end in sight, no true  peace or fulfilment within?

All these “mysterious” issues and feelings are actually the result of what has been termed ‘Nature Deficit Disorder,’ which was the subject of Journalist, Richard Louv’s book Last Child in the Woods. Louv determined that because we spend a lot less time in nature, that we are in deficit, which is wreaking havoc on our systems that are hard-wired to affiliate with other life forms since the beginning of homo erectus. Our survival depended upon it. Not to mention the shamanic ceremonies deeply tied to nature that have underpinned the spiritual health and wealth of native tribes over millennia. So, when we don’t get outside and commune with nature, we suffer from the lack of positive emotional reactions that would normally (historically) get triggered by being close to the earth. Observing. Moving. Touching. Feeling. Listening; deeply. Using all of our senses. Dr. Michael Cohen, who pioneered a practice known as ecotherapy, concedes there are 53.

This is Michael Cohen’s account:

“Cohen, the award winning author of Reconnecting With Nature and The Web of Life Imperative, describes how, in 1936, his elementary school insisted that he, a left-handed person, write with his right hand. This stressed and depressed him and he experienced speech, posture, nail-biting and stress disorders. Over the years, as he overcame these difficulties, he achieved a Ph.D. for discovering that most of the disorders we suffer,  our misery factor, including our greed, stress, violence, abuse, depression, disorders and addictions, result from an unreasonable prejudice-against-nature that lies deep within the psyche of Industrial Society. For profit, this prejudice pays us to exploit and injure natural systems in and around us, including our 53 natural senses and their renewing powers. As part of this prejudice, we learn to habitually, yet unnecessarily, spend, on average, over 98 percent of our time and thinking disconnected from the grace of nature’s peace and healing process. This profound separation produces a nature deficit in us that leaves us wanting. We feel that we never have enough and this spawns our excessiveness and the many problems that result from sensory and sensitivity deprivation.”

In order to overcome this, we need help. We are so far deep into the rabbit hole of  “Industrial Society” that we can’t see the way out. The light at the end of the tunnel is held by an ecotherapist, a profession coming to light as the need surfaces on our blighted society. She or he can lead you through the process of genuinely reconnecting with the essence of nature to reverse our destructive habits, leading to peace within and peace on Earth.

Back to Nature Journeys will soon be offering ecotherapy sessions. This is a real game-changer, so sign up!

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My site has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either
    created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any ways to
    help stop content from being stolen? I’d really appreciate it.

      No, I haven’t looked into it, I just keep creating as much as I can. I know there are a lot of scammers out there, and it’s sad that they are leading people astray, and ripping others off in the process. I have noticed that there is also a lot of bad advice/ BS out there that ranks high in a Google search on any random subject!! It’s all very frustrating, but like everything else in life, there is unfortunately no ‘moral police’ on duty to look out for our best interests.

    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get that
    “perfect balance” between user friendliness and appearance.
    I must say you’ve done a amazing job with this. In addition, the blog
    loads extremely quick for me on Opera. Outstanding Blog!

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said
    “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.

    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell
