When you connect with your trees...

  • You de-stress. They regenerate.
  • You slow down. They get your conscious attention.
  • You listen. They offer advice.

It’s mutual.  You and your trees can become partners for the give-and-take of Mutual Healing. 

Their health needs are the kind that require YOUR touch, YOUR caring words and thoughts…while you are receiving benefits from them.  

Is this you?

  • You love trees and Nature; you have a sense of awe and wonder.
  • You're willing to think outside-of-the-box...believe that both science and Spirit offer solutions to humanity’s environmental problems.
  • Are “into” discovery and innovation.
  • Want to learn leading edge ideas and practices so that people and Nature can thrive together into the future. 
  • Eager to let go of environmental despair and have justifiable hope for a positive future on a livable planet.

FAQ

Questions you may have...

.....

Do I have to have special skills to be a partner with Nature?

NO.  Just the way you are is fine for becoming a partner with Nature.  

You simply decide that you will act in partnership.  

That can mean doing any or all of these things:

  1. Respecting plants, trees, forests and all Nature Beings as living (even sentient) beings. 
  2. Thinking about whatever you are doing and asking yourself whether it will have a negative impact on trees, plants, ecosystems, forests… 
  3. Putting yourself inside a tree’s world.  Imagine standing in its roots, trying to see the world through its ‘eyes’, imagining what its life is like. 
  4. Having MUTUAL encounters with trees.  For example, when you feel peaceful walking in a forest you can “give back” by offering your attention, caring, love, or whispers to the trees.  
  5. Experiencing the 4Cs:  Connecting:  Like “dancing” with a tree, with plants, or other living beings.  Dancing is the art of mutually coordinating with an equal. Communicating:  Feeling childlike and using your imagination to exchange messages with a tree. Collaborating:  Recognizing the deep intelligence in Nature then asking questions to a tree or plant. Co-Creating:  Doing whatever wise thing the tree or plant suggests for both you and them.  This can lead to restoring a livable planet. 
  6. Letting Nature be your guide.  When you want to do something with a tree or plant, let it tell you what it needs.  

How will partnering with Nature bring a better future?

In the last several hundred years, many people’s controlling and dominating actions toward Nature have resulted in the ecological damage and climate extremes that are putting humanity’s future in jeopardy. 

If each individual will only see the living Beings of Nature—trees, plants, forests, animals, and all others—as beings worthy of respect and as equals, then behaviors will change. Similar to being a partner with another person—behaving as a partner to Nature asks for an acknowledgement of the value of the other, asks for courtesy, cooperation, and coordination.  

By behaving in respectful, courteous, and cooperative ways, everything in daily life and on the planet will become better.  A history of negativity or obstacles is just that, history. 

The future can be newly envisioned and newly created.  It’s a future each person must build through an enlightened mindset and positive actions every day.  

Am I helpless in the face of these huge climate dangers like temperature shifts, drought, fire, winds, storms, or flooding?

No.  You can be empowered to make a difference in your own backyard and your local parks. 

We are not talking about becoming a political activist, although civic action is important.  

Just because a tree is green doesn’t mean it’s healthy.  Climate extremes have already compromised tree and forest health world-wide.  By bringing specific PartnerWithNature.org Mindful Methods™ into your mind or consciousness while you are focusing your attention on your trees does have a healing action.  

The healing effects of Mindful Methods help to strengthen the INNER FUNCTIONALITY and the INTERCONNECTIVITY of trees, nd ecosystems.

What we mean is that learning and practicing mindful methods can make a difference. Your use of Mindful Methods can HEAL trees and forests so that they might be better able to withstand climate extremes... and even heal YOU and the planet.  

And in doing so, you will feel empowered!  

Many people have already used our Mindful Methods so we wrote a book about it: People Saving their Trees in Hurricane Sandy.  And more people are taking our various Mend ClimXTREEmz courses to learn to help their trees survive climate extremes such as drought, fire, and others... and to empower themselves.  

What if people see me touching or talking with a tree?

If you are afraid of other people’s judgement, you don’t have to touch or talk with the tree.  You can  stand or sit near it with a peaceful smile on your face. People will simply think that you are enjoying Nature.  Others will never know that you are in a caring and mutually healing relationship with that tree.  

If you are brave, you might ask them to join you in that wonderful tactile experience of feeling a tree’s bark with your fingertips.  It’s a de-stressing, relaxing experience.  It can bring out the child-like joy of playfulness in you and in them. 

We are not suggesting “hugging” a tree.  Although, if you have feelings of sensitivity in your body or your caring-heart, you may enjoy doing that. 

But simply being NEAR a tree means that your proven and measured radiant bio-field and the tree’s radiant bio-field are overlapping.  And that can also be pleasant, relaxing, joyous.  

And you don’t have to talk out loud.  Just THINKING good thoughts, or holding a positive image in mind while you are near a tree can be uplifting for both you and the tree’s consciousness.  They are sentient beings, just different from us.  

Is partnering with Nature based on science?

Yes and More.  

Yes: Scientists who belong to the Society for Plant Signaling and Behavior  (plantbehavior.org) have written countless papers and books about the intelligence in the Plant Kingdom.  These are their findings:

"Plants accurately compute inputs from the environment, use sophisticated cost-benefit analysis, and take action to mitigate diverse environmental insults. Plants are also capable of refined recognition of self and non-self, and are territorial in behavior. This view sees plants as information processing organisms with complex, long-distance communication systems within the plant body and extending into the surrounding ecosystem.”

So, partnering with a fellow being on earth is no longer restricted to other humans. Anyone can partner as sentient to sentient.  

And how is that done?  Through the PartnerWithNature.org 4Cs:  Connect, Communicate, Collaborate, Co-Create.  

More:

Once a person recognizes that trees, plants, forests, and all Nature beings are valuable living beings, often what arises is a sense of deep appreciation that goes beyond the rigors of science.  People want to become partners with Nature Beings because all of us on this planet share Life Energy and Spirit.  

Then, it is very natural for most people to feel a sense of inspiration or sometimes duty to care for this planet and all of its inhabitants in more responsible, sustainable, and healing ways.  Thus, people become parters with Nature.
