Drumroll... I’m coming back to Canada! 🇨🇦 For a Return to Wild’Hood in August! I’ve been prowling amongst civilization for a several months and am excited to get back to a certain sense of my natural habitat... nature & wilderness. 🙌🏻 (Y’all knew it, right?! 😜) .
To be able to operate with ease in modern society AND also to release, undo, and unlearn some of the hazards of Modern Life ... this is to be Wild.🐐
Who’s ready to be dreamt by the land? DM to start the application process. ✅
“The Wild has always entailed uncertainty, a place allowing imagination to flood into it. For centuries, the hinterland between Forest and Village has been a place of dreams, fear, and homage; by its very nature it abides at the edge of where we’re comfortable. The irony, as we pave over any last patches of available land and illuminate our cities and towns so we can’t detect stars, is that the magnetism of the living world grows ever stronger. (We all have) an innate, gut-level desire to feel connected, to claim some sense of authentic place in the world. This book talks about wilderness/wildness not just as a place to visit, like the sharp blue teeth of the ocean, or the harsh mysteries of the Mongolian steppes, but something that can be detected and nurtured in our Inner Life. This is not a book at war with technology, modern medicine, and insurance policies (well, a little, maybe a skirmish), but rather identifies a malaise in contemporary culture, a disenchantment that originates from lack of relating to the wild – in landscape, literature, and metaphor. I believe we are damaged in this respect, our imagination reigned-in on a short leash.. “ ~ Martin Shaw, A Branch from the Lightning Tree. ⚡️🌳
Let’s re-imagine our Wild Nature In Wild Nature With Wild Nature As Wild Nature! And do some wild-land dreaming! 🦢
