Re-wilding with Kendra Ward

Re-wilding with Kendra Ward

In this episode of The Natural Wisdom Podcast, Kristine and Kendra had a wide-ranging conversation about remembering ourselves as nature embodied in human form.

Kendra and I recorded the session just as the Sun moved into the sign of Virgo, and the energy of the season was very much a part of the conversation. We talked about both why and how to heal the perceived split between human and nature; what ‘re-wilding’ means and how to get started in your life, no matter where you live. Kendra shared her process of awakening to herself as part of nature.

Watch now:

Or listen:

Kendra is a kindred spirit in breaking free from our colonial conditioning, and unlearning a mechanistic, separation story about humans and nature; body and soul; spirit and matter. As she noted in describing her book, “Throwing Thunder: Awakening the forces of nature in every woman”‘, the living world reflects to us a model of unconditional worthiness. And, one of the worst things we can do is fail to see the ‘livingness’ of everything around us, from water to rocks to wind.

I had the honor of being interviewed on Kendra’s podcast, Woman Who Rubs the Mountain, earlier this year. Have a listen to hear stories of mountain lions and nettles.

May these conversations inspire us all!
