We Are Wildness

We’re a global community of humans reconnecting with the natural world, rewilding our daily lives, and protecting the wild spaces that still remain.

Our Mission

We’re passionate about helping people reconnect with WILDNESS

We created an educational hub grounded in Nature to help people empower themselves with the knowledge they need to live a wilder, healthier, happier, more connected life. We Are Wildness U is an online learning center for those who want to learn with Nature, about Nature and from Nature.

Inspiration & Awareness

We share inspirational images, blog posts, videos, and other resources through social media and email to inspire our community members to get outdoors, get wild and reconnect with Nature. We hope that by sharing this content, it will spark each person’s inner wildness to wake up and shine.

Community Building

We strive to create an awesome community of wild humans who care about the natural world. Our community is made up of wild ones from all over the world who have many different passions that make the world a better place.

Nature Deficit Disorder

Modern life is busy and filled with to-do lists that keep us distracted and cut off from the natural world. So often we do not realize that regular, everyday interaction with nature is missing from our lives. When we lack a connection to Nature, we suffer.

Nature Connection

Studies show that spending time in the natural world HAS positive health benefits; including lowered stress, increased creativity, feelings of peace and an enhanced sense of wonder.

What I found in We Are Wildness was a group that I could share with...a world-wide venue of wild and kind souls. After I retired I wanted to tell my peace story. I wanted to bring that peace and value to others. We are Wildness offers a way. Try this, it just might sooth that restless itch that only a connection with nature can scratch.

You guys honestly started it all. My heart feels happy and so extremely appreciative of you guys and what you are doing for everyone, as I'm positive I am not the only person you've helped this tremendously! I can't imagine how my life would be without taking interest in your challenge. There's no way I could possibly repay you - but I thank you so so much for everything, and I wanted to make it known to you how much you've helped me unknowingly.

I want to thank you for creating the Rewild Your Life event and all you are doing with the We Are Wildness - I enjoyed every aspect of this - the pictures & posts, the feeling of community & belonging - most of the people I am close to in my world do not have the same feeling toward nature that I do, so it has been so nice to see others who feel that connection. You are doing good work.

Ellen Humphrey-Allen

I did the 30 Day Challenge; sharing and conversing with rewilders from around the world. We became a community of friends, open, funny and caring. Increasingly disaffected with working in an office, the collective joy in nature's gifts and the wild spurred me to act on an idea that had been busy in my head for sometime; I retrained to lead forest school so I can encourage little ones to feel that nature is their home in the hope that they will grow up already wilded. I will continue to enjoy the wild world brought closer to me via social media through WAW.

“To be whole. To be complete. Wildness reminds us what it means to be human, what we are connected to rather than what we are separate from.”

― Terry Tempest Williams
