It’s only after we become domesticated, that we are more capable of unnatural acts. Most of all these show up as prejudices violence, greed and selfishness that seem to characterize modern society.
The truth is, rewilding is more about inner change than outer change, but this can present a problem. As we move further into an urban, technological future, we move further away from the natural forces that shape our minds. How do we get back in touch with them? The human rewilding model suggests that with an increasing awareness of nature, we start to remember where we came from. We forge a connection with our inner essential being.

Back to nature.
Rewilding, can have many forms, we can’t all go back to nature as many of us feel the need to, it’s not practical, luckily for nature. The rewilding experience that’s on offer at various locations, can help us to see things through a slightly different wilding lens. Many wild animals make the transition to establish their homes in our civilized environment. Hence they still retain their wildness, foraging for food and shelter, but their footprint is not as heavy, or as pervasive as ours. Most of the time in our busy lives we never encounter them. Unless we consciously observe them on rare occasions. Can we be in nature and not be noticed? As each generation passes, we move farther away from our wild beginnings. Rewilding and many other disciplines recognize, that emersion of any kind in nature, can only help the human spirit.
