Our connection to nature is an essential element of our humanity, yet connection requires more than simply getting a little fresh air or an armchair understanding.

This Introduction to Rewilding will introduce core routines of deep nature connection – practices that fast track a sense of belonging – even in the city. Expect a hands-on workshop experience, weaving together nature sensitivity and ecological literacy as well as fire-by-friction, string making and sensory awakening.

Claire Dunn is a writer, mentor and barefoot explorer.

Claire worked for many years as an environmental campaigner with organisations such as The Wilderness Society, before turning her attention to the human-nature connection. In 2010, Claire embarked on a year of wild living. My Year Without Matches: Escaping the City in Search of the Wild is a memoir of that journey. Claire is passionate about ‘rewilding’ our inner and outer landscapes and facilitates nature-based reconnection and rewilding retreats and contemporary wilderness rites-of-passage through her business Nature’s Apprentice.

Claire is currently training to be a nature-based soul initiation guide with the Animas Valley Institute and writing another memoir about rewilding in an urban context.
