"To Rewild your life is to unplug from the modern lifestyle of disconnect and convenient consumption and immerse mind, body and spirit into nature's intelligent design to renew the health and well-being of all things wild and free. This includes the health of our communities and our planet and leads to greater resiliency and self-sufficieny with a huge spike in joy." ~ Wildkind Jess

 
 

 

 

The Rewilding journey begins with a curiosity to feel more alive and leads to an exploration of self and a deepening relationship to people and nature. Rewilding, was a term originally created to describe ecological restoration, to repair damaged ecosystems and increase more biodiverse natural habitats. As sentient beings, the term rewilding has an appropriate application to our human experience. This is a holistic approach to rebalance, restore, and thrive in mind, body and spirit as we are all unique ecosystems that are positively affected by our conscious actions to reclaim all that is damaged through our modern lifestyle. This includes stress, poor diet, nature deficiency, technology burn-out, comfort pacification, toxic relationships, social isolation, boredom, fear and overwhelm.
