ReWilder Is ...

Drawing on the contemplative and liberation streams of ecumenical Christianity as well as indigenous spirituality, anthropology, practical psychology and dynamic pedagogy, ReWilder serves up teachings and full-immersion experiences that enable us to live a better story: A story of reconnection with Spirit, Self, Society & Surroundings for common flourishing.

Our agents of change: A multi-faceted communications and educational approach involving writing, podcasting, gatherings and full-immersion retreats that provide the cognitive, heartfulness, and hands-on tools to hear, receive, and re-tell New Stories while accessing Contemplation, Regulation, Play & Permaculture.


Our goal with ReWilder is nothing less than to help “cradle Christians,” skeptics, seekers, and members of other faiths alike rediscover our common humanity as intimately connected to the Earth. We feel that nothing less is at stake than the survival and flourishing of our species.
