The core of our troubles is that, since Aristotle and before, our most powerful leaders, thinkers and teachers have been victims of our culture's nature-disconnected lies.
During our age 1-5 years, our leaders socialize us (read brainwash) to the half-truth labels and stories they believe. We grow up emotionally attached to a way of thinking and relating that distorts and demeans natural systems. It estranges us from them. Our life story habitually rejects the beneficial flow of natural systems in our psyche so the flow stops.
We suffer because we seldom think, feel and relate to the whole of our world and its gifts for well-being.
Organic Psychology gives us an antidote and preventative for our nature-disconnection problems. Its activities help us make thoughtful sensory contact with the transformative powers of natural systems that our thinking ordinarily omits and we may easily add this process to our personal and professional lives. It is the responsible thing to do; the outcomes of Organic Psychology speak for themselves.
