facilitating healing in wild nature
Rewilding has become something of a buzzword in recent times, and not without good reason.
Just as rewilding a place is about creating the right conditions for the land to flourish in a more natural way, rewilding our human selves boosts well-being, allows individuals to self-regulate their emotions and fosters a deeper connection with the world we inhabit.
Studies are increasingly showing the huge benefits being out in nature offers, and learning how to intentionally engage with our senses, emotions and creativity allows us to tap into our innate wisdom and find a healing connection with earth which fosters wholeness.
“You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars. You have a right to be here.”
how can we rewild ourselves?
For thousands of years we were in the wild and of the wild, living intimately with the earth, in contact with our own wild essence.
Rewilding is a journey of discovery that can help us expand our awareness into the feeling of being alive in this body, on this planet; a journey of coming home to ourselves. When we learn how to reconnect deeply with our environment, with this living planet, we find reverence and respect for Earth, and a desire to care for it and all its inhabitants. Outside we have access to more life force, and the capacity to behold the wonder of existence.
