I found that nature is a great healer of psychic wounds. I wanted to become more at home in my own skin. I had been stressed out for years being in the corporate world. I had done well making a 3 figure salary. But, I had climbed the ladder and found that I did not like the view. I took a class in Ecopsychology and in the book they had us read and do all kinds of exercises outdoors. It was great! I found some thing that I was attracted to in the park, like a tree and would sit next to the tree. I would focus on my breath and my feeling about the tree. After some time had past I started to feel as though I was part of everything. I felt I was part of the this whole living organism of the earth and every living thing here. I had never experienced anything like it. It really turned me on to the natural world. I felt very close to the earth and the sky, and had no stress at all.
