Grounded explores the concept of rewilding as an intentional way of living in the modern age that is both disconnected from nature and hyperconnected to technology.
How do we understand nature? Benevolent and supportive? Wild and threatening? Reassuring or unpredictable? We all have a different experience of, and relationship with, nature.
Reflecting on nature's unknowable and mysterious qualities, Grounded explores how we can therapeutically benefit from a deeper connection with nature, finding within it balance, stillness, solitude, resilience, contentment, activity, fearlessness – and our own wild voice.
Within this book, you will discover:
• Mindfulness, breathing and stillness activities • Movement exercises to connect with the physical world • Work-life rebalancing • Nature study and eco-therapies
