Wild Things

My journey into nature therapy and how it can improve our wellbeing has given me so much more than I could ever have imagined….. It has unlocked a creativity that has been neglected for many years….

It is a sad truth that many of us lose the creative freedom that we once had as children. Life gets serious and “grown up” and the art of being playful and allowing ourselves a “beginners mind” is something that is long forgotten.

My adventures and experiences leave me feeling as if something utterly momentous has occurred! I feel the overwhelming urge to say or do something about it! A sea swim as the sun rises, or a walk in the woods barefoot and quiet amongst the trees; these things have such a profound effect on me that I want to honour it, celebrate it, and share it with others.

I have discovered that not only is the experience helping me to heal, but by creating, writing, and giving I am deepening this process.

If I find driftwood on the beach after a sea swim, I am grateful for this gift and I will create wooden gifts, burning wild words and messages for other sea swimmers and wildlings to find. If my heart sings as the light falling through the branches onto the ground creates a pleasing pattern, I will write poems, love letters to the trees, to capture these moments.

The people I meet on my journey also inspire me. Wild souls who recognise the power of nature and feel passionately about it. I love to connect and celebrate with this community of wildlings. Often making short films of their work and activities, sharing a visual story that invites others to join in, if only virtually.

These are the wild things that I speak of. They are here so that I can share them with you. I hope you’ll enjoy them
