Connection is our birthright. Connection to self, to earth, and community.
While the world is speeding up, there is another movement inviting us to slow down, to sink our roots deep into the red dirt and the rainforests, to remember our place in the family of things, to remember who we really are.
When we apprentice ourselves to nature, to the wilds both inside and outside of us, we can awaken into our full potential, our senses alive, our visions and passions on fire.
Now is the time. For as we Rewild ourselves, so too do we Rewild the planet.
The memoir of a journey of self-discovery and healing while living in the bush for a year learning wilderness survival skills.
Helping you dive more deeply into your life, connecting to your essence, and bringing alive your unique gifts.

How does one set intentions for the new year? Intentions that are a genuine movement of the heart rather than a ‘self-improvement’ decision? Instead of mind maps or mandalas, this new year I took the question out to the wilds for a day, and let the mysteries of nature and psyche shake it loose...
Have you ever had an encounter in nature that felt numinous; a direct communication to you from beyond the ordinary? Have you ever walked into the physical reality of a night dream you once had? What is your relationship how symbol and sign show up in your life?…
About ten years I found Soulcraft by Bill Plotkin in my letterbox. Opening to the first chapter I felt relief flood my system as he described with exactness the impulse I was feeling to dive deeply into the mysteries of soul and wild nature. Rather than a pathology, this is a vital phase of...
If my life were a long walk down a river, I could look over my shoulder and see a string of stepping stones rising up out of the water, stretching back to the headwaters.
