Reconnect with your wild essence as you awaken your innate bond with the natural world "Rewilding is a return to our essential nature. It is an attempt to reclaim something of what we were before we used words like 'civilized' to define ourselves." --Micah Mortali In his long-awaited book Rewilding, Kripalu director Micah Mortali brings together yoga, mindfulness, wilderness training, and ancestral skills to create a unique guide for reigniting your primal energy--your undomesticated true self--and deepening your connection with the living earth. For hundreds of thousands of years, humans lived intimately with the earth. We were in the wild and of the wild. Today, we live mostly urban lives--and our vital wildness has gone dormant. As a result, we're more isolated, unhealthy, anxious, and depressed than ever, and our planet has suffered alongside us.With Rewilding, Mortali invites us to shed the effects of over-civilization and explore an inner wisdom that is primal, ancient, and profound. Whether you live in the middle of a city or alongside the woods, the insights and practices on these pages will bring you home to your wild, wise, and alive self.Highlights include:Practice-rich content--mindfulness exercises, guided meditations, yoga and pranayama, inward sensing, forest bathing, and much moreThe "life-force deficit"--explore how our separation from nature affects us physiologically and spirituallyAncestral skills--such as tracking, foraging, building fires, and finding shelterDevelop a sense of calm, clarity, connection, and confidence in both your daily life and the great outdoorsWhat you can learn from nature's teachers--lessons from mountains, rivers, trees, and our animal kinRewild in the wild--guidelines around safety, preparedness, appropriate gear, and packing listsA mindful rewilding flow--put everything together in an immersive, step-by-step rewilding experienceAwaken your authentic spiritual connection with the natural world as you come home to your true selfUnderstand the relationship between our health and the health of our planet--and how we can begin to heal both Part celebration of the natural world, part spiritual memoir, and part how-to guide, Rewilding is a must-read for anyone who wants to embrace their wild nature and essential place in the living earth.
