Ecos Reawakens The Bond With Nature That Leads To Happiness And Ecological Reform
Ecos helps you expand your sense of self so that you no longer feel separate from nature. By widening your relationships, one psychologically gathers up forgotten extra-human parts of oneself.
This reawakening makes you feel responsible for all natural beings. No longer isolated in a human case, one naturally seeks to protect "others" as a form of self preservation. When one cares for the Greater self, happiness goes up along with the sustainability of the natural environment.
In Ecos-the fourth book in the Heartwood Path series-you will discover how your relationships allow you to attain a more complete maturity. Until an awareness of the More-Than-Individual Self is achieved, all plans for world betterment will be sabotaged by the limited perspectives of those involved.
To help dissolve this myopic perspective-one that has caused the diminishment of happiness and the destruction we see in nature-Ecos offers seventy-eight prescriptions and one outdoor activity for each of these directions.
The prescriptions include:
Connect With NatureStop Treating Natural Beings As If They Had No SentienceMake Fellow SubjectsUnderstand How Quirks In Our Cognitive Psychology Lead To Environmental ProblemsSet Yourself Right Before Attempting To Set The World Right
The outdoor activities each have titles. Here are some examples:

The Heartwood Path is unique and enjoyable course of study that shows ways to simultaneously bring about increased personal happiness and a regenerated local and global environment. Like all Heartwood Path books, Ecos uses eco-psychology, conservation psychology, and communing with nature to help participants reawaken to their bond with nature.
Along with learning pertinent universal principles and anchoring one's individual self, Greater Self reawakening, as done in Ecos, is a fun way for you to become like a non-secular Saint-that is, to become driven easily to see what needs to be done, to stand up to injustice, and to persevere in efforts to serve those in need-including nature.
