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 more
The "life-force deficit"--explore how our separation from nature affects us physiologically and spiritually
Ancestral skills--such as tracking, foraging, building fires, and finding shelter
Develop a sense of calm, clarity, connection, and confidence in both your daily life and the great outdoors
What you can learn from nature's teachers--lessons from mountains, rivers, trees, and our animal kin
Rewild in the wild--guidelines around safety, preparedness, appropriate gear, and packing lists
A mindful rewilding flow--put everything together in an immersive, step-by-step rewilding experience
Awaken your authentic spiritual connection with the natural world as you come home to your true self
Understand 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.

Review:

"Rewilding is a vital resource for restoring and deepening connections to the primal world with joy, wonder, and confidence." --Foreword Reviews

"Those looking to bring more intention or spiritual connection to their engagement with nature will enjoy this actionable guide." --Publishers Weekly

"Climb a tree, roll in the grass, wander in the woods. Rewilding is a reflection, an invitation, a poem, a reminder that reawakens our senses." --Jack Kornfield, PhD, author of A Path with Heart

"Rewilding is packed with beautiful information and practices to take you straight to the beating heart of true enlightenment--a willingness to be with Nature as it is, as our greatest teacher. Truly, Micah's book represents the next generation of authentic spiritual inquiry--a space where the wildness of communion with Nature can coexist with the etheric realms of our human heart. This book is a great gift to anyone interested in a transformational journey that brings us down into the roots of who we are and where we come from. I can't wait to start reclaiming my ancient skills." --Katie Silcox, New York Times bestselling author of Healthy Happy Sexy: Ayurveda Wisdom for Modern Women

"Rewilding addresses perhaps one of the most urgent issues of our time--a global nature deficiency disorder that is linked to a host of health concerns, including imbalances found in Nobel Prize-winning science on our circadian rhythms. This is must-read!" --John Douillard, DC, CAP, bestselling author and founder of LifeSpa.com

"Rewilding reads as easily as a mountain stream--go ahead, open any page and notice how you feel." --Gordon Hempton, author of One Square Inch of Silence and founding partner of Quiet Parks International

"With tenderness and insight, Micah Mortali leads us in ways to reconnect with our living earth. Rewilding is an essential first step to restoring our souls--so we can, in turn, restore our sweet, green, broken world before it's too late." --Sy Montgomery, author of the New York Times bestseller How to Be a Good Creature: A Memoir in Thirteen Animals

"Through this inspiring and insightful book, Micah Mortali reminds us of the importance of connecting to the earth and the surrounding environment as a teacher of deep meditative wisdom, as well as for health and well-being. The reader is invited to re-discover that they are part of the cycles and dynamism of life. This recognition of our inherent relationship to the world is particularly relevant today as we have begun to learn both the adverse health effects of isolation and the healing benefit of connection--particularly to our environment." --Marlysa Sullivan, PT, C-IAYT, assistant professor, Maryland University of Integrative Health

Book Description SOUNDS TRUE INC, United States, 2019. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. A unique guide to personal rewilding through mindfulness, yoga, and outdoor skillsAt your core lies a wild, untamed soul-one with impeccable intuition, the ability to navigate the landscapes of your inner and outer worlds, and an unbreakable connection to Source. In Rewilding, Kripalu director Micah Mortali combines elements from the yoga and Buddhist traditions with ancestral skills to create a unique guide for reconnecting with your primal energy-your undomesticated inner self-and awakening your innate bond with the natural world.First used by conservation groups to refer to restoring natural environments, "rewilding" has important implications for human well-being. When we awaken our wild selves, we learn to listen to our bodies and often see our health improve. We trust our instincts and better manage our time, energy, and relationships. We cultivate the confidence to act on our heart's deepest callings. And we gain an understanding of our place in the world, learning to see ourselves as both children and caretakers of the Earth.Mortali's Rewilding offers nature-based meditations, mindfulness practices, yoga flows, and outdoor skills such as tracking and fire-building to help you develop a sense of calm, clarity, connection, and confidence in both your daily life and the great outdoors.
