WOO, what an ask! I decided to create this site to help people connect with their self and the wild (the natural world).
I’ve coined the approach, Self Wilding.
Hmm, this is not about living barefoot and free in the woods (though, how cool would that be?).
Rather, it’s about discovering ‘self’ and ‘the wild’ in everyday living.
This Self is free of others’ perceptions, personas, and the ego, and the wild is about the natural world.
Here’s the deal.
Alienating the self from the natural world has human costs.
Think about the oxygen we breathe, the ambient temperatures we function well in, the vitamins and minerals our bodies need, and much more.
The purpose of this website?
It’s to empower people to care more for themselves, others, and the planet. This is about nurturing and creating awareness around conscious habits, behaviors, and attitudes that make a difference.
It’s to find your purpose, your values, your visions, your motivations, your goals, and your beliefs over those instilled in you by others.
Discovering your true self requires introspection and self-awareness.
It is about wilding the self from others’ perspectives, crafted personas, and ego that serve the present societal direction rather than the self, and seeing the connection with all other substance on this planet.
“Our DNA not only connects us to every plant and animal alive today, but to every single thing that has ever lived” ~ Brian Cox, Physicist.
Self Wilding is like finding your balance in a topsy-turvy world.
Even in fairy tales, balance rules for success.
Goldilocks reckoned mommy and daddy bear’s porridge and chairs were too extreme, but baby bear’s was just right.
You get my point.
How does this relate to real life, then?
Too much of a demanding lifestyle leads to stress. Way too less to boredom. Both drain our vitality.
Over exercising can zap your vitality, just as too little can make you feel lethargic. But, the right balance is essential for your health and wellbeing.
You get my point.
That’s not all…
According to science, nature contact promotes wellness and helps us deal with stress.
Natural aromas (phytoncides) can work in reducing blood pressure, altering autonomic activity, and boosting immune functioning.
As well, nature exudes an abundance of negative air ions, especially around moving water, mountainous areas, and forests.
The best part…
Nature exposes us to negative ions. These stimulate the production of serotonin. And, that makes us fortified against worldly pressures.

Regarding the topics: Apart from Self Wilding being focal, you’ve heard You are what you eat, consider…you are what you see, feel, touch, and hear as well — we cover that – and we cover the use of visualization and other treats to serve your intuitive self. We include what’s said in scientific literature and links to useful sites, books, and videos.
