Rewilding to me has meant coming back to my natural state, a quest to reconnect with a reservoir of inner wisdom and belonging.
We are just beginning to access the deep pool of unhindered energy that is our wild nature.
“Wildness is not a concept, it is an energetic state, says author Miles Olsen. It is not a destination, or something that can be distilled easily. It’s spontaneity. It is untameable. It is a product of the life force in everything, and it defies the logical imprisonment of explanation. As an acorn carries the code for a majestic oak tree and a wispy dandelion seed the imperative of a golden flower, Olson encourages us to connect with what wants to grow and unfold in each of us.”
"Nature reminds us of how be both need to grow and be still. We need to move through all the rhythms of life - seeding, growing, harvesting, composing, resting - and not only strive to constantly produce. As we slow down, we become more present, we feel ourselves - here. It becomes easier to remember who we are and what is important. Then we can make choices that are true to our essential nature, being ourselves, in tune with the world.”
For years, I have been exploring our social, political and cultural paradigms, seeing how they affect the world we live in, and our physical, emotional and mental health. And realised it is not about venturing out to live outside society, but to immerse ourselves in it - that will bring about deep-rooted transformation.
Combining time in nature with conscious living in civilisation and community, and living every moment of this experience with a deep reverence for its essence. Noticing patterns, and integrating the subtle codes of the natural realms. Walking in the midst of a city as if you were walking barefoot through a forest. Re-storying relationships with our selves and the world around us. And knowing in our hearts that we are the designated dancers of wild, flowing, spirit ~ continuously reaching towards the light.
