Extraordinary Life

A tree grows sideways out of a rock face, a flower emerges through pavement, and a turtle navigates an ocean back to its birthplace. Nature’s miracles abound, and we may witness them with awe. But often less visible to us is that we too are nature, and that this same brilliance and intelligence also runs through us. 

The brilliance of nature heals our cuts and beats our hearts, which is in itself miraculous. But our self-help paradigm usually fails to take into account that this same brilliance also mends our minds and emotions. And when it isn’t crystal clear how this works, we actually do things that get in nature’s way, slowing down our innate recovery from difficulties or pain, prolonging personal or global conflict, or making dependable presence, resilience or joy seem out of reach.  

Understanding Nature’s Mind, and how it runs through the human experience, we realize how powerfully trustworthy it is. Our lives become more flowing and present, and our experience more grounded and buoyant.

This "natural psychology" has been taught, with awe-inspiring results, for over forty years in populations as diverse as prisons, schools and Fortune 500 companies, and has lifted people in every nature of circumstance from:

Overwhelm and
Seemingly intractable problems


Peace of mind
And remarkable resolutions

Aligning with our innate wellbeing and understanding the logic of how the human experience naturally works uncovers our own awe-some potential. It is well within the power of nature to lead every one of us from challenged to extraordinary lives; to lives of ease, lives of presence, and lives of love.
