News and Views from Asheville's Greenolina, Real Estate Eco-Steward
Over 20 years ago I had the good fortune to meet and begin working with and learning from Dr. Mike Cohen.
But Dr. Mike Cohen had been an educator and leader in the field of sustainable innovation long before I met him. In fact, this summer we celebrate 50 yearsof a program he founded and still directs, ECHN. UNESCO approved, this sensory art and science curriculum educating, counseling and healing with Nature (ECHN), from Project NatureConnect includes advanced degrees at Akamai and Portland State Universities .
In those 50 years, and in the 20 years I have known and respected Dr. Cohen, ECHN has conclusively demonstrated three things:
1) that the process actually enables participants to interlace their thinking with nature's renewing and regenerative ways and that this produces very positive results
2) that, at the same time, this process successfully enlistis nature's grace to help support mindfulness so that participants again benefit in most positive ways
3) that those who work within the program are rewarded with wellness and peaceful balance
Pretty impressive wouldn't you say? Possibly something every real estate professional and our clients can appreciate...whether we are in Asheville, NC or Anchorage.... My hat is off to Dr. Michael Cohen. He created and continues to steward ECHN ...50 years of nature's self-correcting powers to address the source of personal and community challenges. 50 years of energizing individuals and communities. This is sustainable innovation in action...
